I have never been one to take supplements but I happened to receive some samples at a Pharmaceutical Conference and felt compelled to give this one a chance. Many of my family and friends and some of you know that I suffer from RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis). Although it is not severe or debilitating for me, it’s bothersome enough that I began seeking out alternative care that I could take long-term. I don’t believe in drug treatment as the first option due to side effects and for chronic conditions, due to the toll chronic meds take on our organs. As a pharmacist I know this all too well.
So I read everything I could about this supplement, Curcumin Liquid-Gel Capsules by SupHerb and decided to give it a try. It’s a capsule made up of Curcumin Essential Oil Complex, 100% pure extract.
There’s more than 33 clinical studies and it’s protected by 13 patents in Israel.
As of 2 weeks ago I was taking Matcha Tea with a few teaspoonsful of tumeric, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, a half of a lemon squeezed (and if not too lazy with the shredded lemon zest), a healthy chunk of peeled shredded ginger, and a teaspoon of honey (unrefined when I could afford it).
I began the capsules about 12 days ago, first taking one a day for the first 2 days, not noticing a huge change in my arthritis pain. Mostly my issue was stiffness and back, neck and shoulder pain upon awakening. Sometimes numbness as well in my hands and lower arms. My sleep had been increasingly more disturbed due to this the last few months.
By the third day I decided to take 2 capsules per day and for the first time in months, I slept well, hardly tossing or turning to find a comfy position all night!😄 Since then I’ve been taking 2 capsules a day which the recommended dose is 1-2 per day.
This product was voted product of the year in 2019!🏆
I still drink my Matcha tea almost daily but it’s not with all of the above ingredients every day. It’s no longer a necessity and mostly for enjoyment, although I still receive the health benefits no doubt.
Turmeric comes from the root of Curcuma longa, which is a flowering plant of the ginger family, typically seen in the stores as a cooking spice. Bought fresh it closely resembles ginger root.
Of the many plant substances that tumeric contains, one group is curcuminoids, which has the greatest health-promoting effects.
See my post on tumeric for info regarding full health benefits:
The only drawback I can speak of is the cost….132 shekels and that was on sale plus my employee discount. This is about $38. Depending on how you take it, it can last 1 or 2 months. But for now, living almost pain free is worth it. If I had to rate my pain before it would have been a 7/10 as opposed to now 2-3/10. I will keep you posted on how it goes in the future and until then, please write back any arthritis pain therapy successes that you may have experienced. Would love to hear about it.
