Turmeric and its active ingredient Curcumin is the latest wonder supplement. There has been plenty of research done on this wonderful spice.
In one study, BCM-95 Turmeric (the Turmeric we use in our supplements at Avedissian Natural Health) was found to be more effective than diclofenac sodium (which is Voltaren) in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. There were no side effects in the group that took the Turmeric.
In another study, Curcumin was found to be as effective as Ibuprofen (this is Nurofen) in patients with Osteoarthritis of the knee. In this study, the number of events of abdominal pain and discomfort (a side effect of Ibuprofen) were significantly lower in the Curcumin group.
So if you, or someone you know, is suffering with Rheumatoid Arthritis or Osteoarthritis, make an appointment to see Michelle at Avedissian Natural Health for a natural alternative.
