Curcumin, boswellia, and sore joints.

Inflammation doesn’t get more obvious than sore joints. Conventional arthritis drugs cause significant problems, like kidney damage, and bleeding in the stomach, so it would be nice to know if there was anything else. Researchers at the Center for Complementary and Integrative Medicine in Boston recently thought they would have a look at curcumin, the major anti-inflammatory in turmeric, and boswellia. Research is still at a fairly early stage (unlike drugs, there is no money to be made proving natural substances work), but various trials show they work as well as conventional anti-inflammatories, the sort your doctor would prescribe, with far fewer complications.
