Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/20/2015 -- Arthritis symptoms are one of the reasons why patients suffer. This is why many patients are using a wide variety of treatment options to find relief from pain and swelling. Natural supplements are considered one of the most popular alternatives today.
The Arthritis Foundation has identified nine supplements for arthritis symptoms, including those caused by osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. These supplements can be extremely helpful for many individuals, especially those who are suffering from arthritis symptoms.
"According to Consumer Reports, more than half of the adult population in the United States is using botanicals, multivitamins and other natural remedies. Products that are formulated to promote joint health are considered to be top sellers," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Many supplements today are the subject of a wide variety of studies and research. As a result, a list of the best supplements has been made for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. These supplements are: S-adenosylmethionine, Indian frankincense, capsicum frutescens, avocado-soybean unsaponifiables, cat's claw, fish oil, gamma linolenic acid, ginger and turmeric, or curcumin.
Curcumin supplements are very popular among arthritis patients. Curcumin is an active ingredient of the medicinal spice turmeric and is known for its therapeutic benefits. Turmeric is used in Ayurvedic medicine and is also a cooking ingredient. It is believed that curcumin has the capacity to block inflammatory cytokines and enzymes.
In a clinical trial in 2010, it was found that turmeric supplements seemed to provide long term improvement in the pain suffered by the subjects. The subjects were 100 individuals who suffered from knee osteoarthritis. There was also a pilot study in 2012; it revealed a particular curcumin supplement may have been able to reduce joint pain and swelling in patients who suffered from active rheumatoid arthritis. These are just some of the studies that have found that curcumin may be a very efficient option.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, curcumin and the rest of the supplements mentioned above are worth trying. However, there are also other supplements that are effective for arthritis symptoms, so patients just need to decide which one works best for their needs.
Those who prefer curcumin supplements over other natural alternatives should also look for a product that contains BioPerine. This is a black pepper extract that is widely believed to increase nutrient absorption in the body (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/?ie=UTF8?&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=tumeric).
