(Newswire.net — April 12, 2017) Las Vegas, NV — Turmeric is an ancient, medicinal spice that has been used since time immemorial. It has long been believed to be effective in easing the symptoms of conditions such as arthritis.

Turmeric is a potentially effective and safe joint pain solution. While there are pain medications available, there are many arthritis sufferers who turn to alternative remedies, such as turmeric, to achieve pain relief and increased mobility.

According to a study by the Harvard Medical School, about six million individuals in the United States resort to alternative therapy after a recommendation of a healthcare provider.

The journal called Health Services Research also revealed in its report that doctors, as well as, nurses are more likely to resort to complementary or alternative medicines themselves.

Dr. Minerva Santos, director of integrative medicine at Northern Westchester Hospital in New York, recommends turmeric for joint pain. She recommends it frequently for individuals who complain about having sore and achy joints.

It is also important to note that Dr. Santos also uses the natural remedy to ease joint pain from exercise and sports activities.

Turmeric has long been used in the kitchen of many households and restaurants, especially in India. However, Dr. Santos recommends that consumers should find it in health food stores in capsule form.

The recommended dose of the spice is 1,000 milligrams per day. There are many known benefits of using turmeric supplements, and one is that they often contain high levels of curcumin.

Curcumin is a phytochemical found in turmeric that is thought to be responsible for many of its healing benefits. Some of the most popular therapeutic properties of curcumin are its antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, antibiotic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.

The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine published a study in 2009; it was found that curcumin was as effective as a pharmaceutical drug in easing pain, as well as, improving the function of knee osteoarthritis sufferers.

In another study conducted by the researchers from Baylor University Medical Center, it was found that intake of curcumin in moderate doses on a daily basis for three months was safe.

Curcumin supplements are widely popular in individuals who suffer from arthritis, not just because it can fight pain and inflammation, but it is also safer to use than pain medications. Pain medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been found to cause side effects.

Many arthritis sufferers who want to avoid exposure to these side effects turn to the use of curcumin supplements (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Supllement-BioPerine-Capsule/dp/B0166KAW8M).
