Studies suggest Turmeric as a natural anti-inflammatory treatment

Arthritis in all it's types afflicts one in five adults over the age of 18.  Osteoarthritis is the most common form and is suffered by an estimated thirty one million Americans.
One of the more promising natural treatments are several compounds which are found in Turmeric.  Curcumin and a few supporting components make up the class of chemicals known as curcuminoids.   These compounds have been known to have anti-oxidant properties but new studies are researching their anti-inflammatory qualities.  Some studies suggest curcumin is as strong as some NSAIDs, while others claim it's better at preventing inflammation than reducing inflammation.
Turmeric also contains other unrelated compounds that, in high doses will stomach and intestinal discomfort so using turmeric as a supplement could be problematic.  Fortunately there are curcuminoid supplements sold that are refined from turmeric to avoid this. 
Piperine, a major chemical in black pepper, is often included in these curcumin supplements because of the same effect it can have.
Advocates suggest taking between 200 and 1000 milligrams a day to prevent and reduce inflammation. 
Trials have been done on the toxicity of curcumin have shown no toxicity in patients taking in upwards of 8000 milligrams a day for three months. 
If you are thinking of taking this for anti-inflammatory reasons, consult with your doctor.

Good read! Very useful information. Turmeric is available in almost every supermarket and is a staple to some cuisines. As a foodie, I suggest to use the spice in soups or even marinades. Some people even drink it as tea. I love spicy and aromatic food and I tend to do the cooking in our flat. I guess it works for me because I do not encounter digestive issues. I also remember reading an article that says it is a good substitute to Saffron.
