Take 1000 milligrams of turmeric daily if suffering with arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis pain. Turmeric, the Asian yellow-rich spice found in curry, is a natural anti-inflammatory substance that helps the arthritis sufferer deal with achy, inflammed joints. Turmeric can be added to your diet. Added to egg salad or rice, it gives the dish a rich hue and middle eastern flavor. Place a couple of teaspoons in the soup pot for extra flavor and color.
Turmeric can also be taken in a capsule form. Find the capsule at most natural food stores. It is typically mixed with piperine or black pepper extract to aid absorption of the healthy effects of turmeric. You can also purchase the turmeric in bulk along with capsule shells and make your own supplement to take.
However you take turmeric, the anti-inflammatory benefits will be noticeable.
