Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/31/2014 -- Millions of individuals around the world use turmeric for a wide variety of medical conditions, such as arthritis. However, this natural alternative is not only popular among arthritis sufferers, but also those who are practicing yoga.
Turmeric is considered as one of the best herbs for those who practice yoga mainly because it has high levels of therapeutic properties that can help improve flexibility. It is believed to have the capacity to aid in the stretching of tendons, ligaments and connective tissue.
According to studies, the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric can potentially heal certain symptoms that are associated with over-stretching. These properties are also believed to be helpful in reducing joint pain. The benefits are especially important to those who are experiencing pain in the shoulders, hips, or knees when in a cross-sitting position, or individuals who normally suffer from sore wrists when performing arm balancing postures.
"It is not surprising that turmeric is considered as an excellent herb to use when practicing yoga. This natural alternative can significantly help stretch the ligaments and potentially help the body to heal injuries caused by over stretching," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
There are many yoga practitioners who believe that the herb has helped reduce the pain they experience due to over-exertion. It is also believed that turmeric can eliminate emotional or mental toxins from the body, in addition to its capacity to reduce inflammation. Some claim that turmeric has helped them achieve more flexibility and joy in practicing yoga.
"Pain and inflammation are some of the things that yoga beginners normally experience. They suffer from the same challenges in the same way as those who are just starting to jog or run. Turmeric apparently has healing properties that can increase the body's endurance and strength to deal with yoga movements," added O'Sullivan.
Many yoga practitioners incorporate turmeric with their diet by mixing it with their food or beverages. There are also those who use turmeric herbal supplements to get the best benefits of the herb.
