👍 Been taking turmeric supplement gummies to help with shoulder muscles inflammation. Delightfully surprised

I get a little apprehensive of supplements because a lot of it is snake oil, but after a week of taking the tumruc I swear I do feel less achy. That’s pretty cool because the g@bapentin is only for nerve pain, I need an alternative to popping ibuprofen like skittles.

We’ll see how I feel in a few more weeks about it, but for now I’m delightfully surprised. It’s not ‘all gone’, but it’s substantially less disruptive, which is what I need

There's some ladies at the gym that make a turmeric balm the put on in the sauna. She gave me some a few times and it totally helped some of my inflammation. Gaba did nothing for my pain.

Interesting. Never thought about it topically @Starcrossed

Looked into this, and it seems there is some demonstrable benefit from turmeric, even in the form of gummies, to aid with inflammation. Excellent shout out - I plan to try them this week

Remember we live in a world where people pay for dirt.

Yeah, I usually shy away from the supplements for that reason, but my stepmother strongly recommended them after living with chronic pain for years. She’s a rather discerning woman who I would not describe at all as someone drawn to snake oil remedies or optimism haha. i’m still holding off judgment though. For all I know, this could’ve just been a lucky week and in the near future I’ll be curled into a ball 😅@MrBrownstone

@WhateverWorks Pharmaceutical companies are out for profits. You don’t hear about natural remedies for that reason.

I don’t know about that. Granted, it’s definitely regional influenced, but where I live practically everyone loves the natural remedies market along with cannabis as the cure-all. I personally am not anti-holistic or anti-pharmaceutical. I will say that I’ve had less luck with natural remedies than the western medicine options to treat issues. That said, I live a generally healthy life. I’m sure a lot of people would benefit from major lifestyle changes and improved nutrition/sleep/exercises etc. things Western medicine doesn’t prioritize enough. @MrBrownstone

Honestly, YES!! I take Turmeric and Ginger gummies every day, and I can definitely tell the difference when I skip a day or run out.

I cook with it periodically, but as a flavor palette it gets old for me. I’m not super concerned about it being organic truthfully. I’m more concerned whether the gummy packs enough punch to be effective in any way. Ex: I use magnesium to chill out sometimes. I have this magnesium lemonade drink I really like. Figured I’d try a magnesium supplement. Didn’t do anything at all. @QueenOfQuirk
