Joint Pain Remedy Reviews – Nature’s Harvest Turmeric
Four years ago I was having constant pain in my left crotch area. Not a good place for pain. It was really restricting my golf, hiking and running…among other important activities.
My primary physician at the time diagnosed a hernia. I had surgery and I did in fact have a hernia, but the pain remained. My physician then recommended an x-ray (He probably should have done that the first time). Now it was arthritis of the hip.
My first thought was, “great, now I have a full fledged Baby Boomer health issue like everyone else.” It was true. Many, many of us have some form of arthritis. My doctor recommended physical therapy. It was somewhat effective, but again, the pain remained. I needed other remedies.
I had many other friends who suggested turmeric for joint pain. For those of you who don’t know, turmeric is a herbaceous perennial flowering plant of the ginger family. It is native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.
Turmeric plants are gathered annually and then used fresh or boiled in water and then dried in hot ovens, after which they are ground into a deep-orange-yellow powder. commonly used as a coloring and flavoring agent in many Asian cuisines, especially for curries. Turmeric powder has a warm, bitter, pepper-like flavor and earthy, mustard-like aroma. You can take it as a powder, use it in cooking or take capsules as a supplement.
Although long used in Ayurvedic medicine, no high-quality clinical equivalent exists for use of turmeric or its main constituent, curcumin, as a therapy. It took me a while to get up to the right dosage, which for me was greater than 1,000mg per capsule daily, and to learn that I needed to order turmeric that added bioprene black pepper which helps speed human body assimilatio
If you’re ready to start comparing turmeric brands, I recommend Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric that I researched and found on Amazon.com. It’s 1950 mg which make it even more potent. Upping the dosage really made a difference in how much better I felt. Immediately!
Another great option is Costco 1,000mg turmeric capsules. Much cheaper, and just as effective, if you can stand Costco crowds. I can’t. I’ve become an online shopping junkie.Tags: arthritis, arthritis remedies, Turmeric
