Curcumin is a blessing for rheumatoid arthiritis

Information No Comments

A research report published by a team from the Nirmala Medical Center, India, Baylor Research Institute and the Sammons Cancer Center in Texas seem to suggest another miracle capability of the Curcumin – that of easing the the pain associated with mild, active RA.

According to a report on the published work by Dr. Patrick B. Massey of the Alexian Brothers Hospital Network, “RA patients taking curcumin for eight weeks had a 44 percent reduction in pain symptoms, while those taking diclofenac had a 42 percent reduction. It may not seem like there is a big difference between curcumin and diclofenac, but the difference was significant. Interestingly, the curcumin group also had a greater reduction in overall inflammation (RA may have slightly improved) compared to the diclofenac group. There also were no adverse events with curcumin.
