Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, a spice known for its anti-inflammatory properties.  (1)  Now it’s going to offer MORE! More curcumin PLUS black pepper! Black pepper enhances the benefits of curcumin and turmeric. But the big news is MORE CURCUMIN! Of course the curcumin is sourced as standardized to 95% curcuminoids.  Only the best! As Dr. Cox always quotes from John Ruskin: “Quality is never an accident. It is the result of intelligent effort. And there must be the will to produce a superior thing.”

So why more curcumin? There isn’t yet a standard established, but the research keeps coming. It’s seen a huge surge in publication from 2000 to 2012 and in beneficial usage.

The research promotes its benefits and higher amounts as safe and effective.

  • Curcumin plus lifestyle help patients manage and even avoid osteopenia. (3)
  • For diseases like osteoarthritis and inflammatory based diseases that don’t have many options for treatment, curcumin is promising. Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory effects are superior to corticosteroids even! (1)
  • Curcumin promotes peripheral nerve regeneration in normal conditions and even potentially after sciatic nerve injury. (4)
  • 500 mg to 1200 mg for rheumatoid arthritic patients was well tolerated with no adverse side effects.  (5, 6)
  • 200 mg to of curcumin helped osteoarthritis patients. (7)
  • 2000 mg to 4000 mg of curcumin were used for Alzheimer’s patients with no adverse side effects.  (8)
  • 500 mg a day for atherosclerosis reduced serum lipid peroxides by 33% and total serum cholesterol levels by 11.63% and increased HDL cholesterol by 29%. (9)
  • Taking curcumin, osteoarthritic patients showed improvement in pain, physical function, and quality of life as well as reduced use of analgesics and side effects. (10)

Curcumin proves itself a potential treatment for osteoarthritis (an inflammation related disease) due to its anti-inflammatory abilities. Inflamed joints and nerves respond well to it. Its side effects are minimal for most. Its help for pain and function are promising. Back pain sufferers may benefit. A patient and his or her doctor can work together to see just how much curcumin is effective and appropriate for his or her pain condition.

Disc and Joint Pain Relief Complex Enhanced offers 800 mg of curcumin per serving (400 mg per capsule).
