The breakthrough natural arthritis treatment that is helping sufferers all over Australia 113

National Arthritis Week (15-21 March, 2015)

At present, 28 per cent of Australians are living with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions meaning that roughly 6.1 million people live in daily discomfort.

The cost of arthritis to the Australian Economy is $23.9 billion each year in medical care and indirect costs such as loss of earnings and loss of production, with 11 percent of the workforce suffering from arthritis.

Arthritis is NOT a natural part of ageing and although it is not curable, it can be managed with appropriate medication.

For those who have experienced side effects from NSAIDS and can’t take them, the pain can be an ongoing, debilitating issue however, in an Australian first; a new natural ingredient called Theracurmin is now available in capsule form.

Theracurmin is based on Curcurmin, the active ingredient found in Turmeric – a common household spice. There are over 4000 scientific articles supporting the anti-inflammatory action of Curcumin, which has been shown to act as a powerful natural anti-inflammatory.

Curcumin has been shown to be poorly absorbed in the body as it is fat-soluble and therefore traditionally needed to be taken with fats. The good news is that Theracurmin is 27 times more absorbable than standard Curcumin, with the enhanced bioavailability assisting in maximising the anti-inflammatory power of the spice and providing a natural alternative for sufferers.

For people who suffer from inflammatory conditions, including arthritis, the medicinal potential for Curcumin, may help down-regulate inflammatory mediators in the body, help reduce joint inflammation associated with arthritis as well as provide antioxidant support.

Always speak to your healthcare professional when considering supplementation. When taking supplements, make sure to always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare practitioner and remember that vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.

Consult your healthcare practitioner on strategies for your health. Always read the label. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner.

  1. I have had chronic pain in my hips and thighs for 4 years due to Polymialgia Rheumatica. I have been on qhite high dosage of steeoids for all of that time. I had trouble walking more than 50 mts and have gained weight. 3 weeks ago I started taking, in pill form, Cucumin tabs 600gms and the results are fantastic. Thigh pain has gone and the hips are very much improved. I am totally impressed with this.

      • Have been taking 1/4 teaspoon in tomato juice for nearly 3 years no more pain in knee can walk up to 6km in one morning walk blood pressure lower & feeling much healthier

    • Kay Byrne- i believe that Tumeric and Cucumin are the same. I bought the Cucumin in tablet form (small, easy to take) at The Chemist Warehouse, quite cheap. I tried the Tumeric powder first mixed all sort of ways and couldn’t stand it!!

    • Buy gelatine capsules and fill with turmeric powder, then take as you would normally do with a capsule

    • Joy I take Turmeric Curcuminoids 500 it says each capsule contains: Curcumin 526mg.I have the powder to use in cooking.

  2. I also have been taking Cucumin tablets for 4 years, and the results have been amazing. The ones I have been taking were called Nagesic Forte, now called Nagestic Osteo, but would love to know Joy Bryce were you buy your Cucumin tabs 600gms?

    • I am taking 600 mg of Bieglan Circumin. Taking 2 tablets daily Janette Wallis. Can’t believe the difference. Not completely pain free but able to live a great life.

    • I have been taking Bio Curcumin 4800+ herbs of gold, I feel a difference in my hands and have only taken one tablet a day not two and haven’t had a panadol osteo since I started. Still a twinge now and then so am thinking to take two of these and see the difference. Shop around tho as some discount places sell these for about $25 on special I originally paid $35!!! Hence why I only took one as pretty expensive!!! Also to see if I could notice a difference too!!

  6. I take fish oil it works for me but you have to take at least 8 aday

    • I know it dosnt work for every one it didn’t work for me at first because iwasnt taking enough know take five in morning and five at night it is a lot but it really works for me

  7. we’ve been making our own turmeric capsules for ages.. we prefer the whole herb or spice, not just a part of it (purely personal) and I’ve never had any aches or pains apart from those from bumps or knocks.. It’s about time pharma companies started to let loose on natural and not make us reliant on chemicals that do so much damage. Krill is pretty fantastic too.

    • When I can get fresh Tumeric I just grate it over food.If not available sprinkle dry powder over instead

    • google capsule machines and capsules.. we get American caps – prefer them to Chinese ones… but you need the cap stuffer… LOL.. worth it if you plan to use them fairly regularly.

  8. good stuff, cheapest is from Meriwa from the USA. You have to get it combined with other product to help its absorbtion in the gut.
