Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric contains several medicinal compounds, the most important of which is curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compound. Many evidence-based scientific studies back up the claims about curcumin’s benefits, including better blood sugar control in Type 2 diabetes, delayed liver disease progression, management of Crohn’s disese symptoms, reduction of Lyme disease symptoms, and reduction of pain and swelling associated with arthritis.

I have been dealing with rheumatoid arthritis for my whole life, it started about in my early 30s back in the 90s. I would have my hand swell up to big red balloons around my knuckles and I wouldn't be able to move the hands at all. What I did notice that helped relieve the pain, but not the swelling was Absorbine Jr. The arthritis cream made it easier with the stiffness and the pain when I had the worst conditions. The swelling and the movement were still bad though and sometimes that made it hard to do the easiest of tasks around the house. The thing I noticed at first and the early signs were pain and the swelling. The swelling where my knuckles would get red where the first indications that I had rheumatoid arthritis I searched for alternative treatments and started on rheumatoid arthritis herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, my symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the rheumatoid arthritis disease natural herbal formula.i read reviews from other previous patients who used the herbal formula,i am now active, i can now go about daily exercise!!
