A spicy new recipe for healing nerve damage

turmericA commonly used curry spice could help treat damaged nerves.

Curcumin, the main ingredient of turmeric, is thought to have an anti-inflammatory effect.

In a new animal study at the General Hospital of Shenyang in China, it’s been used to treat creushed nerves.

In the four-wek study, daily injections of curcumin wre compared against saline jabs. Results show that the curcumin-treated nerves regained more sensation and movement.

The researchers believe the spice may help lower inflammation, which can contribute to nerve damage.

Previous research had suggested that curcumin can reduce inflammation and swelling in joints affected by arthritis.

Curcumin is found in TurmericXtra – a combination of turmeric and artichoke. Click the link for more information.
