Pain free at 90

So many people of advanced age suffer from joint pain due to inflammation. My 90-year-old mum is pain free with no aching joints. She confidently acknowledges that it’s the daily dose of Turmeric Plus in half a glass of water that is responsible. A healthy diet, regular exercise and as few pharmaceutical drugs as possible would seem a good prescription for most of us.


She’s one out of the box, my mum. Most of her contemporaries rely on medications to get them through, with anti-inflammatories at the top, or near the top of the list. Pain associated with inflammation; hips, knees, back, fingers, can be really debilitating. Anti-inflammatory medications like cortisone, non-steroidal preparations like ibuprofen and aspirin will certainly do the job. However, these come with risks and should only be taken for short periods of time. Gut ulcers, leading to intestinal bleeding is a common side-effect. Another is cardiovascular disease, increasing a person’s risk of heart attack and stroke.

A lot of of scientific investigation has provided important insights into the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin. This is the active component in the spice, turmeric.  It is anticipated that some extraordinarily potent drugs using anti-inflammatory curcumin as the active ingredient will be designed and developed in the near future…no side-effects, cheap to produce and abundantly available.


While these new generation anti-inflammatories are going through rigorous scientific testing, my mum has found PFE Turmeric Plus to ward off any potential inflammatory conditions and to keep her pain free.
