When I was younger I remember listening to my elders talk about aging and their aches and pains. I found humor in those encounters and still do today when I hear people my age talking about health problems. Now that I’m considered an elder I’m beginning to feel and even hear warning signs that I’m getting up in years and am now interested in joint health nutrition. I’m not as active as I once was back when I was playing tennis every day. Once I injured my knee, I stop playing although I keep saying I’m going back on the court one day.
FEELING A LITTLE TWINGE
Anyway, nowadays I’m feeling minor pain in my knees and hips, especially my right hip when moving about. Going up and down the stairs forces me to be more careful to avoid a fall. So I decided to try the featured product Turmeric Curcumin with Ginger made by Spring Valley.
WHAT IS TURMERIC?
Turmeric is a yellow spice commonly used in curry. It has been a part of the Indian culture for thousands of years and is known to have medicinal benefits. It comes from the turmeric plant and has a warm, bitter taste and some use it to give flavor and color to butters, mustards and curry powders. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
I take this supplement daily in the morning with no problems. I did read one review where someone had an adverse reaction to the turmeric so I guess it’s not for everyone. I can honestly say it has improved my ability to walk and climb stairs without fear of pain from a sudden movement. It actually works! Now since using this product I can take my daily walks in the subdivision including that dreaded steep hill I have to convince myself to climb. Going up is not so bad, it’s coming down that tests my knees to the fullest.
Now this is the only brand that I’ve tried although their are many other options on the market. Since it works so well I don’t see a need to venture out to try other brands.
On Amazon their are 65 reviews of this product with 80% of them with a 5 rating. I read some of them and one of the benefits listed was being and feeling more flexible. I can attest to that as definitely made a difference for me.
If you’re having the same or similar issues with your joints consult your physician before adding any supplements or doing any strenuous exercises.
