How to Get the Most Out of Turmeric’s Joint Health Benefits
If you suffer from joint pain, you’ve probably tried just about everything in search of relief. By now, you may have just given up and accepted this pain as something you’ll “just have to live with.” This is nonsense.
What if you could have significant relief within the next 5 days…and up to 71% less joint pain in just a few short weeks?
Please keep reading, because I’m about to share with you the astounding results from recent clinical research on two powerful healing herbs that could help quickly end your joint pain by addressing the root cause of the problem.
An Ancient Solution for Modern-Day Joint Problems
Made from the deeply pigmented yellow-orange root of the turmeric plant (Curcuma longa), turmeric powder has been a culinary and medicinal staple for thousands of years. It’s considered one of the most valuable healing agents in Ayurvedic medicine, an ancient forerunner to what today we call natural medicine, and has a long history of use for alleviating aches and pains.
Recently, as word of its incredible joint-soothing effects has spread, turmeric has become a “go-to” solution for those on the cutting-edge of natural health, and even some mainstream medical doctors are beginning to take note.
Dr. Scott Haig writes in TIME magazine that he became interested in turmeric after seeing Jerry, a 73-year-old patient who had been taking turmeric capsules daily, “bounce back” much more quickly than expected. His curiosity piqued, Dr. Haig began looking into the impressive research on turmeric and joints. But it wasn’t just the research that convinced Dr. Haig of turmeric’s benefits. It was his patient’s remarkably quick recovery. He writes:
“A week [later], he walked in without a cane, without a limp, got up from a chair faster than I can.”
I love hearing about traditional doctors being “wowed” by a natural solution. And having personally heard so many similar anecdotes about turmeric’s effects on joint health from friends, readers and colleagues, I really wanted to learn more about the science behind its seemingly miraculous benefits.Today, I’m going to share what I learned with you, so you’re not left out when it comes to this amazingly fast and effective joint pain solution.
How to Get the Most Out of Turmeric’s Joint Health Benefits
It’s almost impossible to get the therapeutic levels of turmeric’s active constituents used in the research simply by adding it to your meals. You would have to consume a massive amount (by some estimates up to 12 heaping tablespoons daily!), so taking a high quality turmeric supplement is your best bet.
It’s important to note that turmeric contains a wide range of highly beneficial phytochemicals, with one of the most well known being curcumin. However few people know that turmeric also contains a special class of polysaccharides called turmerosaccharides. These beneficial plant nutrients act rapidly on the immune system to help relieve pain and restore joint flexibility, and they could be the difference between a turmeric supplement being a game changer instead of a money waster.
But because turmerosaccharides are water-soluble (unlike curcumin, which is fat-soluble), they are excluded from the vast majority of turmeric extracts, which are produced using an alcohol extraction method. And as it turns out, if your turmeric supplement doesn’t include these water-soluble constituents, you’re missing out on the full pain relieving benefits turmeric can provide!
That’s why I was so excited to read about a newly developed water extraction method for producing a unique, patented turmeric extract that is super-rich in these specialized turmerosaccharides, making it extraordinarily effective at promoting a healthy inflammatory response and relieving joint pain.
An Incredible 71% Reduction in Joint Pain! Is This Even Possible? Research Says Yes
Recent research on the effects of daily use of this patented turmeric extract, yielded some really impressive, consistent results. In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, researchers used three different well-recognized tests to measure joint pain reduction.
The result? Participants experienced a 42% reduction in joint pain within just 3 weeks, with the results continuing to improve over time! At the end of the 6-week study, their joint pain was reduced by an incredible 71%!
The researchers behind this study believe that this unique turmeric extract is able to deliver such impressive joint pain relief because it works to reduce inflammation across multiple pathways in the body.
Another Natural Way to Reduce Pain by Roughly 40%
Based on my extensive research, I firmly believe that, along with turmeric, no comprehensive joint pain formula would be complete without a potent dose of boswellia, which is another one of nature’s miracle workers.
Boswellia serrata is a large tree best known for producing a resin that contains boswellic acids, which like turmeric, has a long history of use for natural joint support. And modern science has shown that boswellia does in fact lower levels of inflammatory markers by modulating the production of pro-inflammatory enzyme 5-LOX, which is common in joint discomfort and other inflammation-related concerns.[5,6]
The problem is that the active constituents in boswellia are very poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. But researchers have developed a new, proprietary form of boswellia that has been shown to be 52% more absorbable than other boswellia extracts.
In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial investigating this special form of boswellia, joint pain sufferers reported significant reductions in pain and stiffness as well as better joint function and mobility. They saw roughly a 40% improvement across the board in reducing pain and stiffness, and increasing joint function. Plus users started feeling the benefits in as little as 5 days!
Another double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that this special boswellia extract was more effective than a generic extract at reducing pain and stiffness and improving joint function on all parameters, including impressive 60% reductions in some measurements of pain and stiffness. In addition, users reported reduced pain and stiffness within a week! I don’t know of any other natural joint pain ingredient that works so well, so quickly.
My Joint Healing Success Story
Those who don’t suffer from joint pain have a hard time understanding how it can drastically affect your quality of life. Those that do suffer will try almost anything to rid themselves of these problems.
Trust me, I know from personal experience how frustrating joint discomfort can be. Several years ago, I began to experience persistent pain in my knees, which began to make staying active and doing many of the things I love to do extremely uncomfortable.
But since adding turmeric and boswellia to my daily routine, I’ve finished a half triathlon and ran a full marathon. I can’t say I did great, but I’m proud I finished! I also cycled across the state of Maryland and hiked up the 14,000 foot Mount of the Holy Cross peak in Colorado. (See the peak behind me in the picture at right. And believe me, the view is even more spectacular in person than any photo can capture.)
I was only able to do all of this because I had the information I needed to make sure I was taking the right forms of turmeric and boswellia. And if you decide to also try these supplements, I want to make sure you take the right forms as well!
The Joint Pain Supplement I Personally Recommend
I consider turmeric and boswellia “must take” nutrients for healthy joints. However, as I was looking at the different options, I was disappointed by the poor quality of the formulas out there and was surprised that there were none that combined all the right stuff into one supplement.
That’s why I took it upon myself to develop an effective AND affordable supplement specifically tailored to relieving joint pain and supporting joint health called TurmaFLEX™. I’ve priced it as low as $19.95 per bottle, which is up to three times less what you would pay for similar formulas that don’t even work as well!
In addition to my work with Live in the Now, I also run Stop Aging Now, a company that has been making premium grade dietary supplements for over 20 years. I developed TurmaFLEX working with the company’s Scientific Advisory Board. It is designed to be the most effective and most affordable joint support supplement on the market.
I invite you to do your own research to make sure I’m not just shamelessly promoting my own product, but I think you’ll find no other product that works as well for your joints.
Here’s what makes TurmaFLEX superior:
- TurmaFLEX supplies a researched-based dose of Turmacin™, the patented, water-soluble turmeric extract I mentioned above that is clinically shown to reduce joint pain by 42% within 3 weeks and 71% within six weeks. The water extraction method yields an extract rich in beneficial polysaccharides and other water-soluble compounds not found in typical turmeric supplements.
- TurmaFLEX contains a clinically tested dose of AprésFlex®, the fast-acting proprietary boswellia extract I mentioned earlier, which has shown to be 52% more absorbable than other boswellia extracts.
- TurmaFLEX also includes hyaluronic acid (HA), which is necessary for joint cushioning, comfort and lubrication. HA is a vital component of the synovial fluid that surrounds the joints and helps to keep your joints mobile and functioning optimally.
- TurmaFLEX also features the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin, which helps to quench free radicals in and around the joints to promote healthy joint tissue.
- TurmaFLEX also includes a full 1,000 IU dose of vitamin D3. This critical nutrient plays a role in supporting bones, joints and muscles.
- TurmaFLEX provides fast-acting, long-lasting joint pain relief in just 2 small veggie capsules per day. It contains no unnecessary fillers or artificial ingredients.
- TurmaFLEX is available for as little as $19.95 per bottle (which lasts a full month). This is up to 3 times less than other highly advertised brands. TurmaFLEX ships to you for free and comes with an amazing 365-day “any reason” guarantee. This way you risk nothing!
- TurmaFLEX is made in Stop Aging Now’s own FDA-inspected facility in Florida to meet stringent USP standards for quality, purity, potency and disintegration.
For a limited time, Live in the Now readers can get TurmaFLEX for as low as $19.95 per bottle — with free shipping!
