Turmeric (Curcumin) for inflammation?
« on: April 28, 2016, 12:48:10 PM »
Some people with various inflammatory conditions, such as Sjogren's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis claim that turmeric helps them relieve joint pain.

Some random studies seems to support this:

Did anyone try it for knee or other joint pain and it helped? What was your official diagnosis and what exact type of supplements (turmeric, curcumin, or curcumin with piperine) did you take?

Hi,i have been using turmeric past for around 8 years now as i have shoulder & back problems.I can honestly say that it has made a huge difference!
 I can't comment on knees,but,12 weeks ago i had an accident where i ruptured my acl ,high grade injury to macl & 2 fractures. I have had virtually no pain!
I am on a Turmeric group on facebook & so many people & animals benefit fro the benefits of Turmeric paste.
Please read this excellent article.....
