Studies Find Curcumin & BioPerine an Ideal Combination for Joint Pain Relief


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/29/2014 -- Expensive pharmaceuticals and dangerous side effects from prescription medications have many people looking for a natural alternative to relieve pain and inflammation. For a large number of individuals, they've found a safe solution with a curcumin supplement combined with the black pepper extract BioPerine®.

"There are many chemical and botanical agents that enhance the efficacy of the other," said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, an East Indian spice, and BioPerine® is a patented black pepper extract. The potency of curcumin is amplified when combined with BioPerine®."

Curcumin is the spice that many associate with East Indian and Asian cuisine, but it's received centuries of use by medical practitioners there for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant abilities. Modern science has confirmed those properties in numerous clinical trials and research projects around the world.

The body quickly metabolizes and eliminates curcumin with only minimal absorption. When combined with the patented black pepper extract BioPerine®, it enhances the body's ability to absorb curcumin by up to 2,000 percent for maximum benefit.

Inflammation plays a major role in arthritis and a variety of chronic and neurological conditions. When joints aren't able to create the nutrients needed for health and maintenance, inflammation ensues causing swelling and pain. Curcumin quiets inflammation, thereby relieving pain.

For many individuals, curcumin is a safe alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The Food and Drug Administration has issued warnings about their side effects and cautioned against long-term use. They've been associated with bleeding and water retention, ulcers, shortness of breath, kidney failure and even liver failure.

Curcumin is also believed to be a powerful antioxidant that aggressively seeks free radicals in the body and neutralizes them. Free radicals accumulate in the body over time, damaging cells and impairing its innate ability to heal itself. Free radicals are also responsible for the early signs of aging that include fine lines and wrinkles.

BioPerine® is an extract made from black pepper, a common spice in many households around the globe. Black pepper contains piperine and has documented properties of its own, containing a variety of essential vitamins and minerals. When used in conjunction with curcumin, each enhances the other to create a pain relief formula that's safe even with long-term usage
