Symptoms of arthritis: the spice 85p relieves pain and inflammation of the joints
The symptoms of ARTHRITIS include joint pain and inflammation, and the condition affects around 10 million people in the United Kingdom. However, adding a favorite 85p home spice to your dinner could alleviate the signs of arthritis.
Turmeric contains the anti-inflammatory ingredient curcumin, which could help relieve joint pain.
The bright yellow spice is traditionally used as a spice of curry, but research says it could be beneficial for patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Curcumin blocks certain enzymes that cause inflammation, it has been said.
It could also be used to reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's disease and heart disease, according to a study.
Dr. General and nutritional therapist Dr. Sarah Brewer said: "There is a surprisingly long list of natural substances that can help relieve knee pain, from those that provide structural blocks to those that have analgesic and anti-inflammatory actions.
"The ones I have found most beneficial in the practice of clinical and nutritional medicine are krill oil, turmeric, rosehip extracts, devil's claw, cherry extracts and ginger root extract."
Several studies have shown that turmeric has anti-inflammatory effects.
A 2010 study revealed that the Meriva supplement provided long-term improvement in 100 patients with knee osteoarthritis, according to the Arthritis Foundation.
The charity recommended taking between 400 mg and 600 mg of turmeric three times a day for patients with osteoarthritis.
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis should take 500 mg twice a day.
But a large amount of turmeric can act as an anticoagulant and may cause an upset stomach, the Arthritis Foundation warned.
Avoid spices if you are already taking blood thinners, if you are pregnant, have gallbladder disease or are about to have an operation.
Meanwhile, a study earlier this year claimed that, with respect to current evidence, turmeric does not live up to expectations and has few medical benefits, if any.
Symptoms of arthritis include inflammation of the joints, restricted movement of the joints and muscle weakness.
There is no current cure for arthritis, but analgesics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and corticosteroids may help slow down the condition.
