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.
Our special formulation of curcumin may help to decrease pain, swelling and inflammation in mild osteoarthritis.
Curcumin also has a potent antioxidant effect. It’s not yet known whether its demonstrated benefits for mild osteoarthritis come purely from its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, or whether it is also working in other ways to help keep you moving.
Regular 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, curcumin has 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.
Each tablet contains: Curcumin 90mg (from Meriva ® Curcumin phospholipid complex 500mg).
Recommended Adult Usage:
Take one tablet twice daily with food, or as advised by your healthcare professional.
Dairy, lactose, wheat, gluten, animal products, corn, sugars, yeast, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours.
Cautions & Warnings:
Keep out of reach of children. Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist please consult your healthcare professional.
Ginger has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years with its most well-known benefit being nausea relief, particularly nausea and vomiting caused by motion sickness, travel sickness and pregnancy. But did you know that this humble herb has a multitude of other health benefits?
Pain Relief: Ginger may help reduce the frequency of and provide temporary relief from migraine headaches. With antispasmodic, analgesic (acting to relieve pain) and anti-inflammatory qualities, research shows that ginger can also help reduce the symptoms of period pain and cramping in some women when taken during menstruation.*
Osteoarthritis: Ginger has been shown to help relieve the pain, swelling, aches and muscular discomfort associated with mild osteoarthritis. Its analgesic and anti-inflammatory action also helps increase joint mobility and helps relieve morning stiffness associated with mild osteoarthritis.
Digestion: Ginger may help relieve gastrointestinal discomfort, digestive upset, bloating, indigestion, flatulence and colic. Ginger’s ability to calm and soothe the stomach may be attributed to its gastrointestinal tonic and antispasmodic actions.
Circulation: Ginger aids in the maintenance of peripheral circulation and helps stimulate and warm the body and relieve those cold hands and feet.
Nausea: Ginger helps in reducing the severity and duration of nausea and vomiting associated with both motion sickness and pregnancy related sickness.
