Curious to see if anyone has tried ground turmeric before. I've read that 1g a day can be mixed in with a shake or smoothie for pain relief/inflammation relief in joints. I've used other joint products before and already get the joint support from Orange triad which I love, but I was looking for something reasonably priced and effective for inflammation.
Obviously taking the standard fish oils as well.

Back before I had a full time job and health insurance I believe I inflicted myself with weightlifter's shoulder. Couldn't even get under the bar to do squats. A friend at the Vitamin Shoppe that I worked at told me about turmeric and bromelain for joint pain and I started taking it. After a month or so the pain was completely gone. I ended up stopping it for financial reasons but the pain did not come back. The injury came back about a year later and I finally had insurance so I could get it looked at and taken care of. But that turmeric/bromelain really helped, it's good stuff.Look under your chair. YOU GET A REP, AND YOU GET A REP, REPS FOR EVERYONE! If I get a rep, you get a rep, every time. Give me a link to make my life a little easier.
If you don't give me a link and you didn't post in the thread you rep'd me in, I'm not gonna go searching for you. I'll get everyone on recharge.

I use to have all kinds of pain in my shoulders and knees. Since I've been taking AAEFX Joint Rehab, the pain is virtually gone. I've never tried ground turmeric, hope you find something that works for youP/RR/S

I've been taking Turmeric (bulk) for many years. Stuff works great! Has soo many benefits! Cheapest (but least tastiest) way to take it is bulk. Take 1 Tspn 2-3 x p/day mixed in a cup of water or juice if you prefer. Tastes like shiite, but soo much cheaper than buying little pills. The pills hold such a small amount, you'd have to take so many of them...you'll be done a bottle in no time! Good luck!When I'm talking I don't learn anything
