Toss Your Ibuprofen! Take THIS Instead
I know how it is.
When you’re in pain, you just want some relief.
That’s why so many people put up with the side effects of pain medication.
They’re willing to risk the side effects… just to make the pain stop a little.
But what if you didn’t have to make that choice.
What if you could reach for a perfectly safe, natural painkiller…one that’s just as effective as ibuprofen, but with none of the risks?
Now you can.
This natural painkiller is the main component of the popular Indian spice turmeric: curcumin.
A study published in the European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences journal studied 50 rugby players who were experiencing bone or muscle pain.
They either took 1 gram of a curcumin extract daily or a popular painkiller like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. After three weeks, do you know what the difference in pain-relief was?
The curcumin extract was every bit as effective as the over-the-counter drugs at easing discomfort.
But that doesn’t mean there were no differences.
Because while the pain-relief was equal, the players taking the drugs were four times more likely to experience gastrointestinal-related side effects.
And studies over the past few years have shown that drugs like ibuprofen lead to a significant increase in cardiovascular disease events and ulcers—both of which can be fatal.
That’s a hefty price to pay for pain relief—especially when there are safer alternatives that are just as effective.
I doubt you’ll be playing rugby anytime soon, but curcumin’s benefits aren’t limited to rugby-related pain.
Inflammation is the root cause of most types of pain, and curcumin is one of the most potent anti-inflammatory out there.
That means it can be effective in just about any type of pain you can think of, with studies showing that it helps relieve pain from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic neuropathic pain, headaches, backaches…and so much more.
And the only side effects you can expect from this natural pain cure is a reduced risk of practically every major disease you can think of, since inflammation is the common disease denominator.
