( — March 13, 2017) Orlando, FL — Back pain is a condition that many people experience at some point in their life. There are pain medications available, but those who want to resort to side-effect-free options may turn to the use of some natural alternatives.

Back pain sufferers may benefit from turmeric. Turmeric is one of the oldest and most popular spices today.

“It is widely popularized by the unique ingredients it contains, particularly curcumin,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Curcumin is thought to be one of the major sources of turmeric’s potential benefits. It is believed to contain anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, antiseptic, and antibiotic properties.

In a survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, it was found that one of the most prevalent ailments in Australia is back pain. It further reveals that 80% of Australians will have back pain in their lifetime, particularly lower back pain.

It is essential for sufferers to know exactly what the potential treatment options are. Turmeric may be one of these options, and it is even a popular natural alternative for individuals who are trying to fight arthritis pain and inflammation.

Inflammation in the muscles, joint tissue, and tendons around the discs in the back is one of the major reasons why back injuries are extremely painful. Inflammation is believed to cause stress and pinch to the nerves, which then result in throbbing pain that may not subside with time.

The U.S. National Institute of Health conducted research and found that turmeric may be helpful in reducing back pain due to its possible anti-inflammatory properties. The curcumin it contains, which is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, is shown to target inflamed cells.

Once the inflamed cells have been targeted, it may potentially reduce inflammation and may alleviate back pain. There are also other compounds in turmeric that have been shown to offer anti-catabolic benefits. Its possible anti-catabolic activity is believed to help strengthen the muscles in the back, which is linked with muscle tearing and pulled muscles.

Targeting inflammation in the back is essential. However, it is also important to address nerve pain. Since turmeric may contain anti-inflammatory and anti-catabolic compounds, it may have potential in reducing nerve pain. It may be able to target the source of the pain and may help alleviate back pain.

Turmeric can be used to make a tea or be added in a wide range of dishes. However, there are many who prefer to use supplements, which are popularized by the high levels of curcumin they contain.
