The Arthritis Foundation Offers Buying Guide For Turmeric Supplements

Orlando, FL - March 17, 2015 - Turmeric is an ancient spice that is widely used as a pain relief option among individuals who suffer from arthritis. There are many turmeric supplements widely available nowadays, and choosing the right product can potentially help sufferers achieve the level of pain relief they are looking for.

The Arthritis Foundation, on its website, now provides a buying guide for turmeric supplements. This is due to the organization’s efforts in providing consumers with the information they need to make a well-informed and wise buying decision.

“Curcumin supplements are a popular way to obtain the benefits of consuming turmeric. Curcumin is turmeric’s active ingredient that is believed to be extremely helpful in providing pain relief among arthritis sufferers,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Experts believe that curcumin can potentially help reduce the inflammation, stiffness and pain that is associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. The ingredient is also thought to be extremely useful in managing bursitis, as well as digestion problems. It is particularly popular in countries such as India. Turmeric is widely used in Indian and Chinese Ayurvedic medicine.

Recent studies revealed that curcumin may have anti-inflammatory properties that could significantly help modify immune system responses. In a 2006 study, it was found that turmeric worked even better in preventing joint inflammation than it did in reducing it.

A 2010 clinical trial also revealed that turmeric supplements could potentially provide long-term improvement in the function and pain of 100 subjects who suffered from knee osteoarthritis. There was also a 2012 pilot study that found curcumin could significantly help reduce swelling and joint pain in participants suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. It was also shown that the natural supplement was more effective than a commonly used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

“Experts suggest that patients should make a well-informed and wise decision in purchasing curcumin supplements. Some of the most recommended products are those that contain the combination of curcumin and BioPerine,” added O’Sullivan.

Curcumin has low bioavailability and since a black pepper extract, including BioPerine, can increase nutrient absorption in the body, the combination of the two ingredients is believed to be extremely ideal. Curcumin supplements with BioPerine are believed to be more effective in delivering therapeutic substances in the body.

There are quite a number of curcumin supplements nowadays. Experts suggest it is important that consumers take the necessary measures needed to choose a product wisely. They should choose a product that comes from a reliable herbal company. They should also check the ingredients on the label before purchasing a product (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
