Turmeric For Pain Management




Many of us suffer from arthritis and joint pain with seemingly no real help in sight.
Well that's simply not true...  

Turmeric To The RESCUE!!!  


"Turmeric has amazing ANTI- Inflammatory properties and has been used for pain management for thousands of years in eastern countries but did not become popular in western medicine until the early 1900's."


Turmeric (Curcuma longa) and several other species of the curcuma genus grow wild in the forests of Southern Asia including IndiaIndonesiaIndochina, nearby Asian countries, and some Pacific Islands including Hawaii.  All of these areas have traditional culinary and medicinal uses going back to pre-history. 


"There are LOTS of choices for supplemental Turmeric, but be sure to check the purity.
Turmeric for pain management should be a standardized extract and be of no less than a 450 mg tablet or capsule."

I recommend Turmeric Extract (500 mg) from VITABASE.
This Medicinal Turmeric formula is: Standardized to 95%!!
Turmeric Root Extract (Curcuma longa) (Standardized to 95%(475mg) curcuminoids)***500 mg*
___________________________________________________________________________


But don't take my word for it...
Here is a claim on Turmeric from a big name in PAIN.

From The Arthritis Foundation.
"In a small 2012 pilot study, a curcumin product called BCM-95 reduced joint pain and swelling in patients with active RA better than diclofenac, an nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)."

Turmeric benefits from the Arthritis Foundation.

If you still need another reason to use Turmeric for inflammation related to arthritis instead of other "over the counter medications" 
take a look at this...


    Common ibuprofen side effects may include:
    • upset stomach, mild heartburn, nausea, vomiting;
    • bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation;
    • dizziness, headache, nervousness;
    • mild itching or rash; or.
    • ringing in your ears.



If that alone isn't enough to convince you well...    I don't know what will.
Turmeric is all natural, natures pain reliever.

Enough said.






(legal disclaimer) "High doses of turmeric can act as a blood thinner and cause stomach upset. Avoid turmeric/curcumin if you take blood thinners such as warfarin (Coumadin), are about to have surgery, are pregnant or have gallbladder disease."

Dont eat the white stuff!


(Click here to get Natrol Carb Intercept for 17.50!)

We have all heard the starches and carbs in some of our favorite foods are whats causing us to put on those extra pounds, but I'm not about to give up my chicken and rice just yet.

Our bodies need carbohydrates to function, but when we take in more than we need it stores them up as fat.
When we eat foods like breads, cereals, rice and pasta an enzyme in our stomach breaks that starch down into simple sugars so that we can absorb it.

What can we do about this?

Well I'm glad you asked!
White Kidney Bean Extract (Phaseolus vulgaris)  has been proven to inhibit the enzyme responsible for digesting starch into sugar.
As a result, the carbs pass through your body like fiber, you're none the wiser.

By taking a simple Carb inhibitor with a glass of water before a starchy meal you can cut your daily sugar intake in half!




Product Summery:

My opinion: 
"This is a genius way to eat some of the things we like without feeling guilty." 


Price: Good
  17.50 for 60 Capsules is a good deal considering you probably 
                      won't have to use them but once or twice a week.


Suggested use: 
"Use this product to help control unrecognized sugar intake from starchy foods."




Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)





Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or (CLA) is no secret to the body building world.
In July 2008, CLA received a no objection letter from the FDA on its Generally Recognized as Safe status for certain food categories.

With the airing of Doctor OZ episode "The Good Fats Your Not Getting"

The Good Fat You're Not Getting

 There has been an outbreak of interest in this supplement, and rightly so.


  • CLA interferes with a substance in your body called lipoprotein lipase that helps store fat in your body.
  • CLA helps your body use its existing fat for energy.
  • LA increases lean muscle tissue - more muscle means your body can burn more fat.


CLA IS NOT a Stimulant!
Most diet products on the market today are considered Stimulants. This means that they speed up your heart rate and boost metabolism, thus enabling you to burn fat more efficiently.
This is OK for some people but not all, leaving most diet products off limits.

CLA has been shown to reduce waist size, so you lose inches not pounds!


About a month ago when the episode first aired we got flooded with people wanting to buy a CLA product and the results have been amazing to say the least!

I have had more people come back and tell me that there CLA Supplement plan is working than any other product!
I love to hear personal testimonies like this, it really makes me feel good about the products were promoting.

Even though I believe most diets fail due to lack of devotion and self control, judging from the testimonies of many I dont see how any one could go wrong with this product.  A balanced low calorie diet and a CLA supplement is a sure fire way to shed inches of the waist line!



(Click here to get CLA from rediments.com for 13.95!)
Product Summery:

My opinion: 
"The research behind CLA is extensive with multiple benefits, and the personal testimonies are amazing!" 


Price: Good
 13.95 for 60 soft gels is a good deal.

Suggested use: 
"Use this product as directed"
