requently asked questions
Q1 What is Turmeric and how does it help with the symptoms of
osteoarthritis and rheumatism?
A1 Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a core component of modern
curry powder, and is extensively used in a wide variety of
Indian dishes. However, in addition to its culinary uses, this
herb also holds a place of honour in both traditional Indian
(Ayurvedic) and Chinese herbal medicine.In modern times,
researchers have concluded that the antioxidant compound
curcumin is responsible for several of Turmeric’s therapeutic
benefi ts. For example, curcumin has been found to help
regulate some of the infl ammatory responses that are
responsible for the symptoms of mild osteoarthritis. Other
studies have shown that curcumin can help to reduce the joint
swelling and stiffness associated with rheumatism.
Q2 What other benefi ts has Turmeric been shown to have?
A2 Both Western, Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal practitioners
have used Turmeric for centuries for conditions other than
joint pain and infl ammation. For example, the herb has a
history of use in supporting digestion and liver function,
promoting healthy bile fl ow, and managing irregular periods
and menstrual pain.
More recently, researchers have been investigating its benefi ts
in managing the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
and other digestive complaints.
Q3 Why does this formula include Vitamin C?
A3 One of the key components of healthy joint cartilage is
collagen: the protein that gives connective tissue – including
cartilage – its strength and structure. Your body uses Vitamin
C to help create collagen, which in turn helps it to rebuild and
repair joint cartilage.
Additionally, Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which can
help to protect joint cartilage against oxidative damage that is
caused by your body’s infl ammatory responses.
