Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2014 -- An increasing number of rheumatologists and those in the medical profession are recommending a curcumin dietary supplement for their patients with joint pain. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and offers a host of benefits that rival some of the most frequently used prescription medications.
“Studies show turmeric supplements can work better than drugs in providing joint pain relief,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan. “Turmeric is a botanical that contains curcumin, the substance responsible for reducing inflammation and relieving pain. It’s the go-to choice for so many consumers because it works.”
The primary benefit for many who use turmeric supplements is its effectiveness. The curcumin in turmeric has been clinically proven to relieve chronic pain by reducing the inflammation that causes it.
After more than 30 years of laboratory tests, clinical trials and research studies, turmeric supplements are increasingly being recognized by the general public as being safe and effective. No serious adverse effects have been reported, even by those who have taken very high dosages, unlike prescription medications that can have unpleasant and even deadly side effects.
The turmeric plant and its medicinal applications have undergone extensive testing around the globe. Scientific documentation has proven that turmeric is as effective as many prescription medications ranging from anti-inflammatories and anti-depressants to diabetes and cholesterol drugs.
The curcumin in turmeric is also an antioxidant, effective at neutralizing free radicals that cause damage to cells. Free radicals build up over time to levels that exceed the body’s ability to repair the damage. They are a major component of the aging process and are rendered impotent with turmeric.
The cost savings for consumers using turmeric dietary supplements is significant. Insurance co-pays have increased and many policies place restrictions and prohibitions on a variety of medications as “too expensive”. Consumers can purchase a 60-day supply of a potent 750mg turmeric supplement for as little as 14 cents per day.
No longer viewed as an untried home remedy, turmeric now has solid scientific findings that prove its positive benefits for a variety of conditions. It’s safe, effective, costs much less than prescription medications, and provides an easy means of neutralizing free radicals.
