This spice is able to reduce the levels of inflammation – fuelling enzymes
Did you know that turmeric can be extremely beneficial in removing sciatica pain and in swelling? It has a powerful capacity to reduce the levels of certain inflammation-fuelling enzymes. It is good to know that the healthy adults should consume 300 mg of turmeric, three times on a daily basis, in order to relieve their pain and inflammation, as well. However, if you are taking any medicaments don’t forget to consult your doctor. You should know that turmeric supplements are a great source of bromelain, which makes it even more effective anti-inflammatory spice.
Additionally, sciatica can be caused by inflammation. So, it has been used for ages in Ayrveda, and also Asia in order to reduce it. Actually, many Malaysian researches pointed out that the extract of turmeric is able to alleviate the nerve-related pain.
Turmeric is more beneficial than NSAID s
One of its properties is that turmeric is a selective COX-2 inhibitor. Furthermore, COX-1 and COX-2 both are enzymes that are responsible for inflammatory process. It is considered that the first enzyme is a “good” one while the second one is able to increase the inflammation.
It is good to know that NSAID s, are medications that contain non-steroidal as well as anti-inflammatory properties, which contain aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen, and these medications are not selective and act as both COX-1 and COX-2 inhibitors. In addition, they disrupt COX-1 that can cause stomach issues. But, what makes this spice unique and efficient is the inhibition of COX-2.
On the other hand, the production of a selective COX-2 inhibitor was the main goal of the pharmaceutical companies for a long time. But, people often seek for a natural remedy instead of using medications that can even have certain side effects. So, bear in mind, turmeric is cheaper and healthier option than related medications, and also with no side effects.
