The idea that living with arthritis is as simple as popping a prescribed or over-the-counter pill to control the symptoms is long gone. Instead, health recommendations now suggest using a holistic approach to manage the pain and inflammation caused by arthritis.
That likely comes as welcome news if you prefer natural therapies to play a part in holistic health solutions that consider not just your pain and inflammation but also the diet, lifestyle, emotional and psychological factors that could be influencing your condition.
And there are many good reasons for leaning toward a holistic approach, particularly around dealing with pain and inflammation – not least because mainstream drugs don’t suit everyone who lives with arthritis and other comorbidities.
That may be because you’re sensitive to some types of medication or, due to changes to prescribing practices, can’t obtain as much pain relief as you feel you need. You may have other prescribed medications that are in conflict with your anti-inflammatories. Or you may be worried about the health impacts of long-term pharmaceutical drug use.
If that sounds like you, you might be interested to learn about Nageze Osteo Plus, which combines traditionally used, naturally derived turmeric with a patented technology called BetaSorb® to make it easier for the body to absorb turmeric’s beneficial components to maximise its therapeutic effect.
Even better, with the consultation of your health care professional, Nageze Osteo Plus can play an important part in a holistic approach to managing arthritis, as it is possible to use in parallel with other medications which may be addressing your comorbidities.
Made by Australian company BioRevive, Nageze Osteo Plus is a herbal medicine that uses turmeric, the yellow powder produced from the root of the turmeric plant. Turmeric’s main active ingredient is curcumin – the best-known of a group of compounds in turmeric called curcuminoids – which are known to traditionally fight mild pain and inflammation.
A powerful antioxidant that’s credited with uses ranging from healing wounds and ulcers to lowering cholesterol and boosting brain function, turmeric has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine to treat inflammatory conditions for centuries.
BioRevive choses only the best parts of the turmeric root to make Nageze Osteo Plus, which may sound obvious but isn’t necessarily the case with all supplements on the market.
BioRevive then uses a proprietary method to extract the full spectrum of curcuminoids in the turmeric, some of which can be lost when using other extraction methods. For example, essential oils called tumerones that make it easier for the body to absorb the curcuminoids in the turmeric are included in the extraction process.
Next, BioRevive uses BetaSorb® technology to ensure the extracts in Nageze Osteo Plus are as easy as possible for the body to absorb. BetaSorb® allows the extracts to make a smooth passage through the gastrointestinal barrier, allowing users to get a full therapeutic dose, as well as improving the extracts’ water solubility.
BetaSorb® also helps prevent the digestive upsets that can occur when first taking a turmeric supplement, ensuring that Nageze Osteo Plus can be used by people who usually can’t tolerate spices.
Nageze Osteo Plus can be particularly helpful if you can’t use commonly prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) due to blood pressure or gastrointestinal issues, or are concerned about potential interactions with other medications.
Nageze Osteo Plus may also provide peace of mind if you’re concerned about possible long-term adverse effects of pain-killers or NSAIDs, or simply prefer a more natural approach to managing pain and inflammation.
Nageze Osteo Plus can be used every day without a break to reduce the symptoms of mild arthritis and mild osteoarthritis. It can be taken with or without food, is vegan-friendly and is gentle on the stomach and liver, as well as acting as a digestive aid.
Adults should take 1-2 capsules daily with water or as directed by a healthcare professional, with two capsules per day for the first week of use being advisable. People who struggle to take capsules can separate them and mix the powder they contain into a juice or another cool liquid.
Nageze’s focus on easing your arthritic pain and inflammation doesn’t end with just capsules, though; it offers resources that allow you to address your symptoms though your diet, exercise and more, as part of a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.
These resources include a range of delicious recipes, such as this one for pumpkin, turmeric and ginger soup, which makes the most of turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers, as well as the fibre, potassium, Vitamin A and Vitamin C from pumpkin. The addition of ginger, which has its own anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, isn’t just delicious – it’s ingredients have been known to help reduce inflammation.
In fact, one of the beauties of turmeric is that it can be incorporated into your diet so easily by adding it to smoothies, marinades, salad dressings, seasonings and soups; you can check out Nageze’s handy library of delicious, anti-inflammatory recipes for ideas to get you started.
