Daryl’s FIT TIP of the Day:
As we all know pharmaceutical drugs can wreck havoc on the systems of the body. Many folks who suffer from arthritis have to take drugs on a daily basis to control their pain. But there has been promising research to support that a spice CURCUMIN the active ingredient in the curry spice turmeric, possesses potent anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic properties.
If you want to give curcumin a try for arthritis pain, it can be found in supplement form, but relatively high doses are required to achieve its therapeutic effects, and curcumin is generally not absorbed that well. Typical therapeutic doses are up to three grams of bioavailable curcumin extract, three to four times daily, and this is difficult to achieve using standard curcumin powders.
One alternative is to make a microemulsion by combining a tablespoon of curcumin powder with 1-2 egg yolks and a teaspoon or two of melted coconut oil. Then use a hand blender on high speed to emulsify the powder.
Before starting new pain treatments, always consult your physician to make sure that there are no contraindications with your current medication treatment.
