Hi everyone, people suffering from arthritis seem to be shifting more towards natural cures for arthritis, I know I am. People are asking if turmeric and curcumin are good for arthritis? And what the best turmeric supplement for arthritis is?
I have referenced this before but felt I would reiterate about this product as I have found it to be the best on the market, providing amazing pain relief.
It is recommended that you take 1-3 tablets a day with food. I take 2 with breakfast and 1 with dinner and find them very effective in helping the early morning pain and stiffness in the joints. Similar brands available in the U.S.
Benefits (some of)
As always if you want to do your own research, the long lists of benefits you find will be quite overwhelming that’s why I won’t be listing them all.
- Anti-inflammatory – Helps arthritic joints and other inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease.
I have certainly found this product helps my arthritic ankle and I believe regular daily consumption is the key. I have also found that it does help to ease my symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.
That being said I don’t believe just because you are taking this supplement, you can consume copious amounts of unhealthy food and drink and expect no inflammation.
- Has been shown to help brain function such as improving memory and attention span as well as elevating mood.
This benefit is harder for me to gauge, obviously I haven’t sat any brain function tests before and during consumption of this supplement.
There have been scientific tests into the effects on brain function and mood the results did show that turmeric had a positive effect on both.
It is to do with turmeric helping to keep the cells around the blood vessels more elastic to encourage better blood flow. The better blood flows to your organs including the brain, the better they will function.
I have had an elevated mood since taking them which I put down to a result of having less pain and inflammation, so naturally, I feel happier.
- Performs anti-cancerous activity in the body.
Studies are ongoing. It is thought that the consumption of turmeric can halt the growth of cancer cells and possibly stop mutation. As said the tests are ongoing but initial findings are positive.
- Has shown a significant effect in alleviating PMS symptoms in women.
There is an obvious reason I can’t judge this claim. Though I do know of women who say it does help with PMS.
- Anti-ageing effects and reduces oxidative stress, in turn, preventing diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
With Alzheimer’s as with arthritis, the main cause can be attributed to inflammation, as turmeric is thought of as the most powerful anti-inflammatory it makes sense that it could help these conditions.
As far as anti-ageing goes, the thought is that damage from free radicals can cause ageing. Turmeric is an anti-oxidant and they play a key role in fighting free radicals, not only is turmeric an anti-oxidant but curcumin, which is found in this supplement, also ignites your own anti-oxidants in the body.
So maybe this can help us keep our young fresh appearance!
- This particular brand contains piperine (black pepper) which maximizes the absorption of curcumin in the blood.
A true scientific fact, the piperine does maximise absorption.
If you still aren’t convinced I came across an excellent article the other day by Lyfe Botanicals you can view it here.
The products I recommend you buy are always products that I have used myself to great effect. This is no different.
Such is the long list of benefits, I would recommend everyone takes these capsules whether you have arthritis or not.
