Spice Reduces Muscle Soreness

by

Exercising has tons of health benefits, but the older we get, the more we may feel the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). I know I feel it. Every time I try something new in the gym, or increase my time or intensity, I feel pretty sore two or three days later.

The muscle tightness can make me feel less excited about tackling my next workout, or make me hold back when I do work out.

That’s why I was excited to see new research suggesting curcumin may offer some help with DOMS without negative side effects.

Curcumin, an component of (one of the in ) has been said to have , anti-Alzheimer’s and anti-arthritis effects. This new research suggests that curcumin may help with everyday compliance by offsetting some of the negative effects of a vigorous workout. In the study, curcumin reduced -induced inflammation in mice, possibly by inhibiting inflammatory compounds such as COX-2, prostaglandins and leukotrienes. That improved running performance and recovery.[1]

Regular exercise is just what you need to help increase your circulation and flush out inflammation-related that cause muscle soreness. Cross-training, alternating easy and harder work-outs, drinking enough , heat and massage can help. As proven by this research, adding at least 20 mg a day of curcumin might help even more, without harming your stomach the way popular -killers can.

Quick Tip: Jean Carper recommends curcumin for Alzheimer’s prevention. Learn how curcumin can help ward off Alzheimer’s here.
