Healing Effect of Curcumin on Joints

What is Curcumin?

Turmeric is a common spice that comes from the root of Curcuma longa. It contains a chemical called curcumin. It is a major component of the herb turmeric and is one of the most versatile herbs known in the world since the ancient days and it’s widely used as health supplements. Studies have shown that curcu min has plenty of health benefits. 

Curcumin has a surprisingly wide range of beneficial properties, including:

  • anti-inflammatory
  • antioxidant
  • chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic

Curcumin is a free radical scavenger and hydrogen donor, and exhibits both pro- and antioxidant activity. It also binds metals, particularly iron and copper, and can function as an iron chelator. Because of its non-toxic element and amazing healing property, it works as a therapeutic agent, and is currently in human clinical trials for a variety of conditions, including multiple myeloma, pancreatic cancer, myelodysplastic syndromes, colon cancer, psoriasis and Alzheimer’s disease.

How Curcumin Can Treat Arthritis & Joint Pain? 

Curcumin is well known therapeutically for its anti-inflammatory property as it can help reduce joint pain. In one review, curcumin was found to be an effective and safe anti-inflammatory across six human trials.

It has also been used in both traditional Indian (Ayurvedic) and Chinese medicine to treat a range of ailments affecting the blood, liver, joints, immune system, and digestive tract. Not only is it thought to provide pain relief, it’s touted as a potential cure for diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. 

Curcumin seems to target specific molecules or pathways that control the cell cycle. It also blocks inflammatory cytokines and enzymes, including 5-LOX and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), the target of the drug celecoxib.  This is why studies have shown that it can be helpful for people with osteoarthritis and arthritis.
