Inflammation afflicts all of us at some point in our lives, whether that is during allergy season, from athletic injuries, gym exercises or sickness. Often it is characterized by redness, and swelling of various tissues within the body and significant pain; one of the leading causes of inflammation in modern times being our old friend stress.
Turmeric contains curcumin, which has traditionally been used in herbal medicine as a general source of antioxidants for the maintenance of good health, but more importantly as a means of reducing inflammation in the body. In modern day medicine, curcumin is used to reduce the inflammation specific to joint pain in order to restore mobility to joints and reduce overall pain.
Clinical research reinforces the idea that curcumin reduces the inflammation related to edema, ulcerative colitis as well as rheumatoid arthritis. Moreover, curcumin is useful for athletes looking to reduce inflammation regarding exercise.
