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.


Buy it!

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.

I hope you all find the same benefit from it that I have, as always let me know how you get on in the comments below!

      Yes I didn’t know it was used for IBD as well which was a bonus when I found out! I hope you have success using it, let me know how you get on.

  4. I have been using tumeric for years. I have arthritis in my hands and certainly can feel the difference when I have taken tumeric, and know if even more when I have not taken for a while. A miracle spice that many overlook but should be including in their diet.

    1. Hi Brad thanks for reading and commenting.

      Glad to hear you are a fellow consumer of turmeric. I agree it’s a fantastic spice that can benefit everyone!

  5. Lately my mood has not been good and I like that it can also affect my mood positively. How much should I consume it for optimal results?

    1. Hi Furkan thanks for reading and commenting.

      In answer to your question it says on the bottle the recommended dose is 1-3 tablets per day. I take 3, 2 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon. Remember to take them with food and water to maximise effects.

  6. I love curcumin, not only for my arthritic ankles, but for general joint health and muscle recovery! It really is an amazing product! Thanks for all the great insights and I will be sure to check this brand out!

    1. Hi Christina thank you for reading and commenting!

      Yes I agree it really is an amazing product for joint health and recovery, glad to hear you too feel the benefits.

  7. Hi Andy, thank you for a wonderful post. I can attest to the benefit tumeric has to offer because I suffer with psoriasis which causes severe inflammation. I personally enjoy it best with a warm cup of milk and little ginger. My tumeric remedy has been insanely helpful for my inflammation and is very calming. Thanks again for sharing

    1. Hi Evelynn thank you very much for reading and commenting!

      I haven’t thought of having it with warm milk and ginger, it sounds really nice though might have to give it a try!

  8. I always knew that turmeric has a lot of health benefits. As a matter of fact, it has become quite popular among chefs and restaurant owners in the Philippines. They have included it as an ingredient of their specialty dishes.

    However, I never thought that turmeric is also good for arthritis. I was just talking with my friends and colleagues about the discomfort that arthritis gives especially to our dear old folks. Because of this, there are a lot of things they want to do but couldn’t.

    Of course there are a lot of pills and capsules that promise relief for arthritis but I always want to go with something natural and organic. I’m just wondering if this turmeric supplement is good for all ages, even older people. And does one need to continue using to get the most benefit?

    1. Hi Alice thank you for commenting and sharing information with us.

      Yes I try to use organic supplements where possible, I would say it is better to keep taking it regularly. I certainly notice the difference when I don’t take it, it is a wonderful pain reliever!

      It is good for all ages ?

  9. HI Andy, What a fantastic Article. My Dad suffers from Arthritis and also has Parkinson’s. I know that he will be really interested in this article as inflammation is a huge issue with both these illnesses. Also finding something that won’t mess with his other medications. I suffered a few issues a while back and my neighbour put me onto adding Turmeric to my morning coffee which I managed for a little while but the flavour was very strong. I think the option of an organic capsule might be easier to swallow. Thanks for sharing and I will definitely pass this on.

    1. Hi Mary thanks for reading and commenting, I certainly hope your Dad will find some benefit from it ??

      Yes it is a very overpowering flavour in large amounts so the capsules are a good option!

  10. Hi Andy,

    Thanks for the recommendation. I would like to ask you if I can take turmeric as the prevention? I mean I don’t have arthritis, but I do exercise a lot and obviously, knees and joints overall are under the pressure. Do you think it would help to prevent any issues in the future?

    1. Hi Eugen thanks for reading and for your question.

      I would say that taking it would help deter symptoms as it is such a powerful anti-inflammatory.

      I believe most people would benefit, as there are more people suffering from inflammatory diseases in modern society!

  11. Thanks Andy, I’ve heard some people talk about turmeric a little, but never heard the reasons they were taking it. This sounds like something I need to try and could benefit from having inflammation causing a collagen breakdown below the knees, which also effects my circulation in my feet. This is very interesting and pleased to get this information. I know people react in different ways, but is it something that has to build up in the system or does it have a some what quick effect since it helps with circulation? Thanks for recommending a brand that you have seen positive results with.

    1. Hi Donald thanks for reading and commenting, in my experience taking the supplement I noticed pain relief fairly instantly. I do also think that regular continued consumption has enhanced the effect, it certainly seems that way for me anyway.

      If you are still struggling with circulation Donald, then I have some other articles that may be of use to you:

      Hopefully something will be of benefit to you, best of luck!
