Turmeric or Curcuma longa is one of the ancient remedies for easing aches and pains. Although it is widely used as a coloring agent in Asian cuisines, its health benefits have increased the use of turmeric worldwide for therapeutic purposes. The therapeutic properties of turmeric are primarily attributed to its main bioactive constituent curcumin. Curcumin is especially good for the health of the joints. The anti-inflammatory effect of curcumin helps in reducing swelling and pain in the joints. Turmeric can be used as a safe alternative to the anti-inflammatory drugs for alleviating symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
