Natural Pain Relief with Turmeric

Turmeric (Curcuma longa)

A Classic Indian spice finds new followers in natural medicine.

Turmeric is fast becoming the most popular and widely used anti-inflammatory, sourced naturally.

It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years, to purify the chakras, strengthen digestion and improve flexibility for yoga practitioners.

In our modern times, it is being rediscovered for its powerful ability to control and manage inflammatory conditions. Joint and pain disorders such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, muscular aches and pains, period pain, and joint swelling are some conditions which have benefitted from turmeric extract.

Other illnesses which can be traced back to prolonged inflammation and where turmeric has been used include MS, autism spectrum disorder, peptic ulcers, sinusitis, allergies, asthma, eczema.

Curcumin is the active ingredient of turmeric, and it really is required to take it as an extract for it to be strong enough for therapeutic effects.

Liver support

Apart from helping to reduce inflammation, turmeric extract also benefits the liver, stimulating bile production and performing anti-oxidant activities in the liver. This helps to normalise LDL cholesterol levels, prevent plaque build-up and aids in the digestion of fats.

So with the list of benefits still growing as research intensifies, it becomes clear why a quality Curcumin extract is such a well-loved supplement to use! It is a generally safe herbal, but take care in case of gallstones or bile duct obstruction.
