This product helps to enhance health in two ways:
- Taken between meals it helps to break down soft plaque in the blood vessels, thins the blood, helps with menstrual problems and works as an anti-inflammatory for painful joints.
- Taken with meals it is an excellent digestive aid that helps with bloating, gas and minimizes the feeling of fullness.
Turmeric stimulates digestion, supports the liver, and reduces intestinal permeability. Turmeric's active ingredient is curcumin which helps to check inflammation by inhibiting leukotrienes and thromboxanes. Curcumin is also an antioxidant that helps to stabilize membranes that are damaged by inflammation.
Bromelain, an enzyme isolated from the stem of the pineapple plant, aids in digestion by breaking down protein, and improves the absorption of turmeric. Bromelain also helps with blood vessel and joint inflammation. Bromelain blocks the body's production of kinins, reducing swelling and promoting healing. Bromelain's most common application is in the treatment of inflammation and soft tissue injuries. It has been shown to speed healing from bruises and hematomas. Treatment with bromelain following blunt injuries to the musculoskeletal system results in a clean reduction in swelling, pain at rest and during movement, and tenderness. Administration of bromelain presurgically can reduce the average number of days for complete disappearance of pain and inflammation.

I take one at breakfast and one with dinner. I cannot emphasize enough the level of improvement in my RA symptoms. Less pain, more joint mobility and strength -- what's not to love? The bottom line with RA is to decrease inflammation (the root of dis-ease!), and turmeric and bromelain have MORE than proven themselves effective. Apparently I have a hard head because turmeric has been recommended to me about a million times by people who really know their stuff -- I can only say I wish I had taken heed of their great advice earlier. This is the first natural remedy I have used that has clearly, quickly, and consistently improved my symptoms. Period, no doubt, end of story.
digestive reliefI take 2 caps 3x a day to help with digestion and have gotten a lot of relief. I also have a little more movement in my joints. I haven't had any bad side effects at all.Was this review helpful to you?
