You know, I think it’s real funny that in society as a whole, we only focus on a few specific ingredients or aspect of whatever we’re doing. When I say that I mean that no matter what our area of enjoyment or hobby is, we only focus on the main points. Here’s what I mean
Ask any person on the street about pro wrestling and they’ll say “oh you mean the thing that Hulk Hogan does”?
(Well You Know Something Mean Gen)
Or next time you feel like talking to the dude in the cubicle next to you, ask him to name another female on Baywatch not named Pamela Anderson.
The point I’m trying to make is that unless you’re a hardcore pro wrestling or Baywatch fan you wouldn’t know John Cena or Yasime Bleeth if they walked by you on the street.
It’s the same with nutritional supplements.
And while this entire article could be about all the great supplements that are out there I want to focus on a specific segment. I want to talk about joint health.
Now most people know about glucosamine, MSM, and the rest of the Crack And Pop band but most people know nothing about Turmeric and how darn effective it is.
The Turmeric True Story
Today many herbalists consider Turmeric one of the best supplements for anti-inflammation and antioxidant health but you know how wacky they can be. Not taking anything away from them, this herb is powerful. Turmeric for centuries has been used to heal wounds, digestive disorders and increase immune system health (You hear that all you Swine Flu Crazy’s).
While most of the research on Turmeric wasn’t done in a traditional white coat, big university, going to appear in scientific journal, it has been tested extensively by various Indian scientists.
Containing curcumin and curcuminoids, turmeric is able to act as a natural COX-2 inhibitor, COX-2 being the main inflammatory pathway that wrecks joints and brings thunder with it.
It has even been tested against prescription non-steroidal ant-inflammatory drugs and has relieved joint pain in arthritis patients without the upset stomach issues or internal bleeding.
Turmeric And Bad Things
A few of the popular studies on Turmeric have found some pretty interesting things
- Smokers taking just one teaspoon of turmeric a day for thirty days had lower levels of cancer-causing mutagens.
- Patients with high cholesterol took just 500 milligrams per day and each showed significantly lower cholesterol levels in just 10 days(partly do to the curcumin within turmeric).
Turmeric has also been noted to help detox the body from alcohol in addition to prescription drugs. Just another cool added benefit.
How To Take Turmeric
Now you can go out and grab Turmeric in a powdered form but I’m not promising anything on the taste. If you went that route then look to take 1 teaspoon three times a day. I hear it’s not bad in warm milk. You can also buy the pill form which usually contains 445 milligrams per day.
Either way, if you have joint pain make sure that you try Turmeric today.
