Clinical Trials Reveal Curcumin Can Decrease Pain for Arthritis Sufferers


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2014 -- A wide variety of medications are routinely prescribed for the inflammation and pain of arthritis, from steroids and narcotics to anti-inflammatories. Many drugs have dual qualities, but can result in dangerous and deadly side effects. Arthritis sufferers can now look to a curcumin dietary supplement for pain relief with the confidence of multiple clinical trials that support the botanical’s effectiveness.

“Research has proven that curcumin is safer than NSAIDs and provides relief that’s as effective as many prescription medications for people with arthritis,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Steroids can actually weaken joint tissues, while narcotics cause dependency. Some anti-inflammatories have been linked to a host of side effects and even deadly consequences, making recent research into the abilities of curcumin for pain relief in arthritic conditions especially important. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, a culinary spice that has been known to reduce pain and inflammation.

Arthritis is a symptom of more than 150 diseases and conditions that cause inflammation. When joints don’t work properly due to impaired cartilage, they become inflamed, resulting in swelling and pain. Scientific studies throughout the world have arrived at the same conclusion – curcumin is effective for relieving inflammation, swelling and pain.

A black pepper extract called piperine is incorporated into curcumin supplements to enhance absorption. The herb has been designated as generally regarded as safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It’s well-tolerated, even with prolonged use, working on multiple levels to relieve arthritis pain.

Curcumin has also been determined to be a potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that damage and degrade cells. The body is able to repair itself more effectively when the threat of free radicals is addressed. Exhaustive studies conducted at the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University support those findings, as do numerous clinical trials reported in the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists.

Scientific evidence supports what Asian and East Indian medical practitioners have known for centuries. Curcumin is a powerful botanical with the ability to reduce inflammation, pain and swelling associated with arthritis.

A curcumin supplement offers a natural and effective means of addressing arthritis pain without the use of costly and potentially dangerous prescription drugs
