Turmeric for Joint Pain


Whether it be from age, arthritis, sporting injuries or accidents, 9 of 10 of us will suffer the debilitating effects of joint pain at some point in our lives. From minor aches to crippling chronic soreness, joint pain not only affects us physically, it can impact on our mobility, limiting our social and working lives, and affect our overall emotional wellbeing. The main cause of joint pain is inflammation, which is a breakdown of cellular tissue. One of the best ways to combat inflammation is with turmeric, as it is well known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects.


Turmeric, best known for its amazing nutritional and anti-inflammatory properties have been used in curries and stir-fries across India and Asia for centuries. But food alone is not enough to deliver the remarkable medicinal effects of turmeric. Nature’s Help Organic Turmeric capsules is one of the best ways to get the benefits of turmeric on a daily basis. The capsules also contain black pepper and ginger, which aids in the efficient absorption, digestion and circulation of turmeric into the cells.

Each capsule contains:
♥ Turmeric
comes from the root (rhizome) of a flowering plant of the ginger family, namely the Curcuma Longa plant. Turmeric is bursting with active ingredients, the main one being curcumin, which has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory affects and is responsible for turmeric’s vibrant orange colour.

♥ Ginger
is botanically related to turmeric and shares many of its nutritional properties. It is a wonderful digestive aid as it as it has a calming effect on the intestines which helps relieve gas, bloating and acid reflux, while also allowing the gut to absorb more nutrients from food.

♥ Black Pepper
is a natural digestive aid and contains piperine, which has been shown to significantly boost bio-availability – the amount of nutrients, such as curcumin in turmeric, that are absorbed by the body.

What causes joint pain?
When tissue fluid builds up around the joint, it becomes inflamed and the joint becomes difficult and painful to move. Arthritic pain is symmetry so if your left finger joint is inflamed and sore then your right finger joint will also be inflamed and sore.
There are two types of joint inflammation and joint pain. One is acute and one is chronic. One is a short-term visit and the other one is there for a long time and sometimes a lifetime. Joint pain varies between individuals and cool and warm weather also play a part.

How many joints are there in the body?
This is a great question to start understanding joint pain. The straight answer is “it depends” You see you have to define the word joint first of all.

There are joints where 2 bones connect and there are sesamoid inclusions which are bones embedded in the tendons but don’t connect to other bones. The kneecap is an example of this and is the largest sesamoid. Then there is the age factor. Babies are born with 270 bones and as the body matures some of these bones fuses. Adults have about 206 named bone, with 80 in the Skelton and 126 in the appendicular skeleton. So, the short answer to this question is between 250 and 350.

There are many different types of joints also. Synarthroses (immovable), Amphiarthroses (slightly moveable) and Diarthroses (free moveable).

Types of freely movable joints:
• Ball and socket joint (hip)
• Hinge joint (fingers, toes, knees, elbows and ankles)
• Condyloid joint (base of the finger and the wrist)
• Pivot joint (base of the skull, connects the first vertebra of the spine to the second vertebrae)
• Gliding joint Saddle joint (thumb, shoulder, inner ear)



Common Joint Complaints
The sacroiliac joint is one of the common joint complaints. Inflammation of the sacroiliac joint can produce pelvic pain and is more common in young and middle-aged women.

When hip joint pain occurs, it is generally a gentle reminder of the fact you are not that young anymore and certainly not indestructible. With use and age, the cartilage can wear down. This results in muscles and tendons getting overused and can lead to arthritis which leads to inflammation of the hip joint which can lead to mild to chronic.

Shoulder joint pain is a common problem. In our younger generation, it is often as a result of an accident or sporting injury. However, as we mature, it is yet another gentle signal of ageing. Healthy cartilage allows for easy mobility, but as we age it is not uncommon for the synovial membrane, or for inflammation of a bursa sac (Bursitis) to become inflamed. Once the joint becomes inflamed, you will start to experience mild to moderate pain.

Another common joint complaint is the knee joint pain. Knees are way more susceptible to sudden or overuse injury and often have an underlying condition such as arthritis, which then causes…..you guessed it…..INFLAMMATION and this leads to some level of pain.

All joints can become inflamed and as a result, we get:
Elbow joint pain, finger joint pain, big toe pain, thumb joint pain, facet joint pain, AC joint pain.

Inflammation goes way beyond sore joints. It can manifest in many different forms including gut problems, skin conditions, headaches, migraines, even lack of sleep, depression and stress!
Chronic inflammation is linked to many gut complaints such as irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, colitis and gastritis.
And due to the gut’s incredible connection with the brain, mental illness is also a condition linked with chronic inflammation.
“People dealing with any of those inflammatory conditions that cause pain and discomfort in the gut can be infinitely helped with a product as great as turmeric,” said Mona
“Likewise, turmeric can really down-regulate the inflammation effects that affect anxiety, depression and many mental illness conditions.”
