Turmeric can work as a pain-killer, says a recent study
Turmeric is gradually becoming famous across the world for its medicinal benefits. Now a recent study claims that turmeric can act as a powerful pain-killer as well.
It was found that in the case of sportspersons with injuries, turmeric relieved the pain in less than three weeks and was as effective as popular painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen.
The best thing about turmeric is that it also causes no side effects unlike the other pain killers.
Researchers say that turmeric contains curcumin which is responsible for healing injuries naturally.
Curcumin-based products can be used for painful muscular conditions which take place due to high-intensity physical activities such as physical sports.
Turmeric is also recommended to be used by patients with allergies and inflammation such as those with allergy, asthma or sinus problems and even arthritis.
In some studies, turmeric was also found to be effective in boosting memory and easing depression in patients over the course of time.
