Do you have muscle or joint pain and are you looking for a natural alternative or to supplement over the counter or prescription pain relief?
Studies Have demonstrated that Turmeric has Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-oxidative properties, and is often used to help manage the pain of Arthritis on its own or as an adjunct to other medicine.
We recommend Turmeric to our patients who may be struggling with the pain of Arthritis and who may not be able to use conventional Anti-Inflammatory pain relief, or who don't feel they want to take regular prescription anti- inflammatories.
Turmeric is a spice that does not cause the potential side effects that some NSAIDs can like Ibuprofen and Naproxen often prescribed for the management of muscle or joint pain.
What is Turmeric
Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow colour. The active ingredient Curcumin comes from the rhizome of the plant.
Curcumin has been used extensively in India in Auyurvedic medicine for centuries as it is non toxic and has a variety of therapeutic properties including antioxidant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic activity, and anticarcinogenic activity.
Many studies indicate that chronic, low-grade inflammation may be a key factor in developing conditions like heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease and cancer.
In test-tube and animal studies, curcumin has been shown to block certain biological pathways leading to inflammation.
The Curcumin content of turmeric as a spice is not that high and you would have to consume significant amounts to get the desired anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
To experience the really therapeutic effects of turmeric you need to take it condensed in the form of a supplement.
As well as this Curcumin itself is hard for the body to break down, therefore you need to mix it with something that makes it bio-available or fat soluble to get the most benefit.
That’s why we combine our turmeric and curcumin with black pepper or piperine which has been shown to enhance the absorption of curcumin by 2000% or up to 20 x.
While there is no official consensus on effective turmeric or curcumin doses, the following have been used in research with promising results.
For osteoarthritis: 500 mg of turmeric extract twice daily for 2–3 months.
For high cholesterol: 700 mg of turmeric extract twice daily for 3 months.
For itchy skin: 500 mg of turmeric three times daily for 2 months
However, the World Health Organization (WHO) has determined 1.4 mg per pound (0–3 mg/kg) of body weight an acceptable daily intake.
