Turmeric As Effective For Treating OA as Ibuprofen

Turmeric

A recent study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine reports that certain turmeric extracts are as effective as ibuprofen from treating osteoarthritis.  Over 100 patients with knee osteoarthritis participated in the study.  Each patient received either Ibuprofen or turmeric on a daily basis for six weeks.

When the study concluded improvement in pain scores were assessed for level walking, stairs, and overall knee function.  The study found no significant difference between the groups!  This means eating curry works just as well as Motrin!
