You might know turmeric as the bright yellow spice that adds colour to curries but now it has a surprising health benefit! The active compound in turmeric, known as curcumin, is becoming increasingly known as a natural aid for the inflammation and pain of mild osteoarthritis. Swollen, inflamed joints can make life a misery. Now research has suggested that curcumin might be able to help the pain and swelling of mild osteoarthritis.
Our special formulation of curcumin has been shown in clinical trials to:
- Help to improve mobility in mild osteoarthritis.
- Decrease pain, swelling and inflammation in mild osteoarthritis.
- May help reduce the impact of mild osteoarthritis on social and leisure activities.
- Be absorbed up to 29 times more effectively than standard curcumin extracts.
- Get into your bloodstream twice as fast as standard curcumins to get to work faster!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Curcumin also has a potent antioxidant effect. It’s not yet known whether its demonstrated benefits for mild arthritis come purely from its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, or whether it is also working in other ways to help keep you moving. In fact, in recent clinical trials, people with mild osteoarthritis who took the special Meriva curcumin in Curcumin Anti-Inflammatory Pain Reliever could walk over twice as far on a treadmill test as those who did not. People taking the Meriva curcumin in these trials also reported that it was significantly easier to go about their daily lives compared to those who were treated with standard treatment.
ABSORBED TWICE AS FAST AND 29 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVELY!
Most curcumin is not very well absorbed by the body, with very little making it into the bloodstream to work on inflammation and pain. In fact, previous curcumin products have had poor bioavailability, requiring high doses to get results. But not ours! Australian NaturalCare’s special formulation of Meriva curcumin is made using patented phytosome technology to combine turmeric-derived curcumin with phospholipids to boost bioavailability, and improve the absorption of the curcumin. This special, proprietary combination of curcumin with phospholipids has been shown in research to be absorbed, on average, more than twice as fast, and up to 29 times more effectively than standard curcumin products.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL...
Indian society has used turmeric for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to support health. Now we know that curcumin not only offers relief for mild osteoarthritis, it also helps support our cardiovascular health and the health of our liver and digestive system.
