GNC Turmeric Curcumin is a supplement for people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and other joint conditions. It contains a spice called turmeric, which has been used to treat arthritis, cancer, may be good for the skin, and of course is used for cooking.
Turmeric contains the chemical curcumin that helps to decrease much of the inflammation associated with arthritis, similar to the way that NSAID COX-2 inhibitors work. Curcumin is thought to inhibit the production of prostaglandins, which are found in the joint fluid of rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. If these prostaglandins become too active in the joints, pain and inflammation occur.
Turmeric may also have other uses in the body; some recent studies suggest that it can be useful in fighting obesity. The curcumin in the turmeric is thought to limit fatty-tissue growth. While small amounts of turmeric may be helpful, many experts recommend supplementing a diet with moderate to high doses, usually found in the form of a turmeric capsule, such as this one.
Finally, it also may help to remove some of the carcinogens that can accumulate from smoking cigarettes; therefore, it is thought to be a tool in the fight against cancer.
Users are directed to take one capsule each day.
