How Curcumin Works Against Inflammation

When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it. Inflammation can be uncomfortable, but it means that the body is starting to heal itself.


Here are signs of inflammation to look out for:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Heat


Your body creates this type of acute inflammation quickly and it usually lasts for just a few days. Inflammation is not inherently bad; it just means our immune system is fighting off viruses and bacteria. Sometimes, however, inflammation lasts longer than necessary, causing more harm than benefit.


This is where Curcumin can play an essential role.


Curcumin is a safe and powerful anti-inflammatory. It blocks the production of inflammatory cells and proteins and this resonates throughout your entire body. Studies show curcumin can treat a range of inflammatory conditions. These include:

  • Arthritis
  • Post-surgery inflammation
  • Irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Cancer

However, even though curcumin is one of the most powerful and safest anti-inflammatories around, your body can’t easily absorb curcumin in its natural state. Curcumin only accounts for about 2 percent of the turmeric root.


You can bridge the gap and benefit your entire body by taking a curcumin supplement.


IntegrAid’s Curcumin Phytosome provides natural support in managing general inflammation.  It helps manage inflammation-related conditions such as osteoarthritis, psoriasis, delayed onset muscle soreness, etc. With regular use, Curcumin helps prevent chronic diseases. Consult your physician first before you start taking supplements.
