Steroids for Arthritis? Take THIS Instead
If you’re suffering from the constant pain of arthritis, I know you’d do just about anything for a little relief.
That’s why it never surprises me when people are willing to face the risks of mainstream’s pain-relief options.
Desperate times, desperate measures.
But there’s a powerful pain-relief option that doesn’t come with a laundry list of side effects.
It’s more powerful that NSAIDs—and even stronger than steroids. And it can put you on the path to PERMANENT pain relief — starting today.
The pain-relieving benefits of turmeric keep popping up. Earlier this year, a study showed that turmeric’s main component—called curcumin—is as effective as ibuprofen at relieving bone and muscle pain.
Now, another study is adding more to its pain-relieving resume.
This time, curcumin was put to the test against steroid medications in arthritis patients. And once again, curcumin held its own against one of mainstream’s most powerful pain-relievers.
In fact, curcumin’s anti-inflammatory activity was STRONGER than the steroids during the acute phase of arthritis.
But using both together had the greatest impact.
When curcumin was used with just low doses of steroids, it led to significant decreases in pain and swelling—the two primary concerns of arthritis.
As an added benefit, the curcumin seemed to make the steroids less toxic, while also reducing the risk of arthritis complications. This is great news, since steroids can cause weight gain, high blood pressure, stomach bleeding, insomnia, and more.
This adds to previous studies indicating curcumin’s ability to reduce swelling and tenderness in joints.
Bottom line: If you’re suffering from any form of arthritis pain and swelling, adding a curcumin supplement to your regimen is one of the best things you can do to improve your outcomes.
