Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2015 -- Pain is one thing that almost all people don't want to experience. However, it has become a part of the lives of many individuals who are suffering from conditions such as arthritis. Scientists are now testing an ancient spice known as turmeric for potential applications in pain relief.
Promising animal studies indicate that turmeric may be highly beneficial to individuals who are suffering from neuropathic pain. Many individuals who are suffering from the condition have reported that they experienced pain relief from using the natural alternative. Many of these patients suffered from nerve related disorders such as tingling, numbness or pain in the feet or hands.
"Turmeric was used as a medicinal spice for thousands of years in ancient East Indian medicine. Today, it is gaining popularity among arthritis sufferers looking for natural pain management alternatives," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Experts believe that the anti-ischemic agent in turmeric has been responsible for its benefits for nerve pain. They suggest that it can potentially regulate the blood supply to the peripheral nerves. Nerves stop working properly due to lack of blood supply, and the anti-ischemic effects of turmeric may have the ability to manage this blood supply problem.
While more studies are still being conducted to validate the effects of turmeric, more and more people are already using the spice to achieve nerve pain relief. There are those who take turmeric powder and incorporate it with their diet, while others use curcumin supplements.
Curcumin is turmeric's active ingredient and it is believed to be responsible in providing the spice's therapeutic benefits. Curcumin supplements are widely available in the market and are produced by many herbal companies.
Products that contain both curcumin and BioPerine are believed to be most effective. According to experts, BioPerine is a black pepper extract that can increase the bioavailability of curcumin. In other words, it increases the body's capacity to absorb curcumin and other nutrients http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/?ie=UTF8?&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=turmeric
