I'm normally a bit sceptical about these things but was at the point where I was willing to give anything a try. As yet undiagnosed joint pain, always worse when the weather is wet and or cold. Pain killers don't do much, I was dreading the winter again.
I've been taking Turmeric capsules for about three weeks and didn't really expect to see any improvement but it occurred to me last night that the pain doesn't seem as bad as it would normally be.
Could be coincidence but I wondered if anyone else had tried these and if so did they help? It seems too easy almost.

Works very well on my horse's arthritis! Have you tried taking it 'straight' rather than as a pill? There's a FB page with masses of useful information - www.facebook.com/groups/415313751866609

Turmeric is fantastic - but if that doesn't help, even better, though expensive, is Solgar 7 (it does include turmeric and black pepper, as it happens). I swear my knee pain, which had been getting progressively worse over the last couple of months, disappeared within 3 days of starting these. I can cross my legs again, its not waking me at night, I can kneel down, lunge and squat again without pain - amazing!

I used Turmeric and Boswellic acid capsules after I had cosmetic surgery, to relieve some swelling and help with the pain.
It did help. To the point I nag DH to take them for his knee.
When I mused about it to my surgeon after at our check in, he pointed out how rater of arhtiris are much lower in countries where cooking with Turmeric is common place, and that he always recommended it on the sense of "it can't harm the heeling process, it may aid it".... It definitely helped in my case.
