Turmeric Curcumin is a miracle medicinal spice! In fact, in India it’s referred to as the “spice of life.” Loaded with powerful antioxidants, it has multiple health benefits to heal the body from a vast array of health conditions as well as prevention from diseases that include Alzheimer’s and different types of cancer. One of the most well-known benefits of Turmeric Curcumin is its ability to reduce inflammatory conditions and muscle pain without needing to take pain killers or over-the-counter medications like Ibuprofen. Let’s delve further into the benefits of this spice for healthy joints.
Natural Healing Powers
More and more people are turning to natural remedies for healing physical ailments instead of prescription drugs and it’s not surprising to see why. If people can reduce inflammation and pain using a natural plant source like Turmeric Curcumin, why wouldn’t they? It has incredible health benefits, is safe and non-toxic, gentle on the body, and has no proven side effects. Curcumin (curcuminoids) is the active ingredient in turmeric and is a powerful antioxidant that is anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, and anticancer. While turmeric curcumin is extremely beneficial for treating inflammatory pain, we also recommend a healthy diet to support a healthy body and minimize inflammation.
Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
For those suffering with arthritis and osteoarthritis, curcumin is proven to be anti-inflammatory which in turn relieves pain. A 2014 study for Clinical Interventions in Aging found that extracted curcumin is just as effective as ibuprofen for treating osteoarthritis of the knee. Curcumin is now utilized by numerous arthritis patients because it subdues tumor necrosis factor (TNF) by suppressing TNF production, by blocking the act of TNF, and by blocking the increasing issues and pain associated with arthritis. Curcumin is successful in minimizing pain associated with Arthritis and Osteoarthritis while lessening morning stiffness, improving walking speed and distance, and reducing joint swelling.
Extensive research was done comparing the effectiveness of curcumin and the effectiveness of phenylbutazone, which is a well-known non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Curcumin and phenylbutazone both worked equally better than that of the placebo but unlike phenylbutazozne which had side effects, there were no side effects for those taking curcumin.
A review recently published in the journal, Molecules, that backs this finding stated:
“…Studies to date suggest that chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, and most chronic diseases are closely linked, and that antioxidant properties of curcumin can play a key role in the prevention and treatment of chronic inflammation diseases.”
The bottom line is that turmeric curcumin, a natural spice that is packed with antioxidants, is just as effective at treating inflammatory diseases as modern medicine – without any negative effects on the body. It’s the clear choice for managing arthritis pain.
Athletic Inflammatory Pain
Turmeric curcumin is proven to effectively treat athletic inflammatory joint issues by easing joint inflammation caused by constant wear and tear on muscles and joints. Joseph Maroon, a Pittsburgh researcher, lead a study back in 2006 titled, “Natural Anti-Inflammatory Agents for Pain Relief in Athletes,” and in his studies determined the same findings as the studies’ findings above - Safe and non-toxic pain relief comparable to pharmaceutical medications that treat inflammation issues.
Maroon advises his patients to take between 500 – 1,000 milligrams of turmeric curcumin per day in supplement form to manage pain and inflammation though many take more than that on a daily basis. Each person may take a different amount depending on the severity of their joint pain.
Both acute and chronic inflammation can be treated with a daily turmeric curcumin supplement mainly due to curcumin’s ability to target and stop pro-inflammatory enzymes like TNF, COX-2, and 5-LOX, from growing.
Turmeric Curcumin & Black Pepper
The human body only takes in a small amount of curcumin into its blood stream due to turmeric curcumin’s low bioavailability (the amount that is actually absorbed by the body). Increasing the daily amount taken orally does not increase its absorption. To receive maximum benefits of the medicinal spice, it needs to be combined with black pepper.
Research has found that just a small amount of black pepper – even a quarter of a teaspoon – combined with turmeric curcumin can increase curcumin’s bioavailability by 2000%. Yes, you read that correctly – 2000%! The human body’s liver considers turmeric curcumin a foreign substance and immediately makes it water-soluble so it can be easily released from the body. Black pepper prevents this from happening. When it’s blocked from becoming water-soluble, curcumin is absorbed beautifully into the blood stream making it as effective as pharmaceutical drugs to treat and heal the body and boost joint health.
IshaPur already contains bio-enhancing black pepper extract within each Turmeric Curcumin supplement, taking the guess work out of how much black pepper needs to be ingested separately. The two-in-one supplement is effective, safe, non-toxic, and easy to swallow twice per day. Each pill contains 1,200 mg of anti-inflammatory support to start healing your painful joint symptoms so you can once again have a better quality of life pain-free!
Turmeric (Curcuma longa, Curcuma domestica) is used in a variety of curry dishes prepared in South East Asian countries. What has become a routine food habit is actually a centuries old wisdom. And For a good reason! Turmeric is perhaps among the most prominent health supplements naturally available today. The list of benefits are endless, among those is its “anti-inflammatory” property. Turmeric Curcumin extract from IshaPur is natural, animal friendly and clinically tested.
