Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/05/2015 -- NSAIDs or Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are widely used by arthritis patients who want to achieve pain relief. However, some studies are now suggesting that there may be a more safe and effective option available for sufferers than these drugs.
According to research, curcumin supplements have demonstrated impressive improvements in providing pain relief compared to drugs. Curcumin is an active ingredient of a common spice known as turmeric. This spice has been used for thousands of years for a wide variety of medicinal purposes.
"The suggested antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in curcumin are believed to be the major source of its therapeutic benefits. Further studies continue, but many preliminary results indicate curcumin supplements could be used to help achieve pain relief," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Researchers of high quality clinical studies believe that turmeric has 175 physiological effects and 600 medical benefits. These figures are the culmination of thousands of trials and studies that have been performed in to analyze the healing effects of the plant.
One study by the Department of Experimental Therapeutics at The University of Texas, found that curcumin provided better anti-inflammatory benefits than several commonly used NSAIDs. Combined with other similar studies, the results indicate that curcumin could be more effective in providing pain relief than 16 pharmaceutical drugs.
Experts believe that the natural alternative is not just popular due to its efficacy in providing pain relief, but also its safer long-term applications. NSAIDs have been widely known to cause potentially lethal side effects, with the FDA issuing a strong warning against prolonged use. Consumers looking for a safer solution for long-term use are encouraged by the positive study results.
Choosing the right curcumin supplement is essential and it is the only way that patients can take full advantage of the natural alternative's therapeutic benefits. Curcumin has low bioavailability and needs to be combined with a black pepper extract to increase its absorption in the body. Experts suggest curcumin supplements that have BioPerine in them to take full advantage of the therapeutic benefits http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/?ie=UTF8?&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=turmeric
