If you’re in pain and you need relief anti-inflammatory drugs are effective. But, they can be expensive and come with dangerous side effects. Some have even caused death! There is an alternative to drugs that has been shown to be as effective without the side effects, which is great news for anyone looking for pain relief.

The Spice That Could Change Your Life

CurcuminTurmeric which is also known as “Indian saffron”, is a plant with a long history. For over 4000 years people have used Tumeric for medicinal purposes and as a spice. More recently studies have shown that Curcumin, a part of the Tumeric plant, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Extensive clinical trials have shown that Curcumin is a safe and effective way to relieve the symptoms of many pro-inflammatory diseases. Diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and even Alzheimers.[1] As a powerful antioxidant it helps reduce and prevent free radical damage. Also, it inhibits pro-inflammatory pathways lowering the levels of two enzymes which cause inflammation. [2]

It’s possible to add curcumin to your diet using spices like Tumeric and curry powder allthough the amount of Curcumin available through these spices is quite small. Even the purest Tumeric powder contains only 3.14% Curcumin.[3]   Because the amount is small supplementation is generally needed to get the greatest benefit. We recommend products like Terry Naturally Curamin Extra Strength because it’s more absorbable and contains other natural anti-inflammatory ingredients for safe and effective pain relief.


If you have pain caused by inflammation but you’re concerned about medications and their dangerous side effects Curcumin may be the, safe and effective alternative you’ve been looking for. Have you tried curcumin for pain? Share your experiences below.
