1) Curcumin - a component of the curry spice turmeric. Research shows that curcumin inhibits the synthesis of inflammatory substances in the body, offering powerful relief from pain and swelling. 2) Ginger - has many of the same anti-inflammatory benefits as curcumin, yet affects the body differently. Recent studies have found that 75-100% of patients with joint or muscle pain experienced significant relief after taking ginger. 3) Boswellia - is a powerful inflammation fighter that provides fast relief, while also helping to prevent the breakdown of carilage. In a landmark study, boswellia was shown to ease knee pain and stiffness within just seven days. 4) Bromelain - an enzyme found in pineapples, has been shown to speed healing while reducing pain and inflammation. Amazingly, studies show that bromelain can actually reduce knee pain as effectively as some pain medications. 5) Tart Cherry - has unique anti-inflammatory properties that specifically target muscles. Recent research shows that tart cherry improves post-exercise recovery and may offer better muscle pain relief than over the counter painkillers.
