Are you living with pain and on the search for natural ways to help relieve discomfort? Well, adding supplements to your regimen might be the answer you’ve been looking for – especially when combined with a balanced diet, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
Pain can be really uncomfortable, and some people go to great lengths to figure out how to ease discomfort. And since inflammation is your body's natural response to injury and discomfort, it’s a good place to begin.
So how do you know if you’re dealing with inflammation? When a certain area of your body is inflamed, you may notice redness, swelling, heat and pain radiating from that area. Because of this discomfort, you may also find it hard to move the affected area.
Even though inflammation is a natural process of healing, sometimes it can get out of hand and last far longer than necessary. And if inflammation remains elevated for long periods, it can lead to tissue damage and chronic inflammation.
Fortunately, many studies suggest that certain foods that you eat may help relieve inflammation in your body.
To help ease inflammation and discomfort, here are the top 3 supplements that should be on the top of your list!
Did you know that this yellow-coloured spice does more than add flavour to your meals? Some would argue that it may even be the most effective spice around!
Each serving of our Organic Turmeric with Black Pepper and Ginger capsules is naturally packed with hundreds of active compounds.
Various studies have unravelled how curcumin, the main active compound found in turmeric, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that may help kick inflammation in the body.
To help your body make the most of curcumin, we’ve also included black pepper. The reason being? Black pepper is known to boost curcumin absorption by as much as — wait for it — 2000%.
Psst, did we mention that we’ve also included organic ginger in our popular supplement? Like turmeric, ginger contains anti-inflammatory properties, which may help relieve swelling and inflammation.
You can give your body a serious boost by including our High Strength Omega 3 supplement, made from fish oil.
The omega-3 fatty acids found in this supplement can be found in the form of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid), which contain anti-inflammatory properties to help relieve pain and swelling. This supplement is a popular alternative for those looking to relieve those niggling pains!
And for those of you who are vegan, vegetarian or simply detest the taste of fish oil, we also have a vegan-friendly version to provide those all-important omega 3s!
Magnesium, aka the mighty mineral, plays an important role in the health of your muscles. So if you’re experiencing tense, tight and painful muscles, you may be lacking in magnesium.
Low levels of magnesium can also trigger, yup, you guessed it, inflammation in the body, which can also contribute to aches and pains.
To help ease cramps in your muscles, including a Magnesium supplement may really help. This supplement can not only play a role in curbing inflammation, but it can also help reduce tiredness and fatigue, as well as normal muscle function, so it’s a win-win really!
