Zingiber officinalis: Gingerol, shogaol, and other structurally-related substances in ginger are potent anti-inflammatory agents and they excert their action by inhibiting prostaglandin and leukotriene biosynthesis through suppression of 5-lipoxygenase or prostaglandin synthetase. Additionally, they can also inhibit synthesis of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1, TNF-α, and IL-8 and thus reduce pain and inflammation.
Capsicum annum (Red Chilli): Capsaicin the active marker of this plant has both analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties and it’s activity was comparable to Diclofenac. Even low dose capsaicin gel treatment for four weeks results in reduction in stiffness and pain score in osteoarthritis. Topical capsaicin reduces joint pain, stiffness and swelling involved in osteoarthritis.
