This is a sponsored giveaway post. I was given a bottle of Schwartz BioResearch Premium Ultra Pure Turmeric Curcumin as a gift for promoting this giveaway and this sincere review also contains affiliate links. Please see the Disclosures Page for more information.
For my choice of a free supplement I picked Schwartz BioResearch’s Premium Pure Turmeric Curcumin because I deal with a large ammount of inflammatory pain related to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and my stomach can no longer handle NSAIDS.
In the past, Turmeric was my only treatment for inflammatory pain in my muscles and bones. Anytime I feel inflammation building in my system, I add Turmeric as a supplement or spice to my food to decrease the response.
A grand body of evidence supporting the use of Turmeric as an anti-inflammatory treatment superior to that provided by NSAIDS (Motrin, Aleve, Celebrex) and the popular over-the-counter analgesia Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Parcetamol). Turmeric is less toxic on the liver and more effective in treating the overall process of inflammation gone awry rather than just dulling the first line of defense.
During the three years I avoided medical care, Turmeric was my primary supplement to treat my musculoskeletal pain. Despite having an incurable chronic illness, not yet diagnosed at the time, there were many good days where I felt healthier than ever in my life only using a few supplements to manage my symptoms.
Since the last year with my sudden and progressive decline, medical management is of necessity as it often becomes with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Still, there are too many symptoms to list that my prescriptions fail to cover! Turmeric is a safe, subtle alternative to increasing the amount and dosages of my prescription symptom management.
When contacted by Schwartz BioReseach about promoting the giveaway and getting my choice of a free supplement, it couldn’t have worked out better because my supply was out and the day before it arrived I slipped my shoulder out of place rolling over in bed!
My bottle arrived just in time because by the next day, I could barely move my head and neck or use the arm of the affected shoulder. I added the supplement in with my usual attack plan and in the first day of use I felt it working to loosen up the area around the injury.
After just 2 days of using Schwartz Bio Research’s Premium Turmeric I was able get my shoulder back in place when usually this would be a 7-10 day process of increased oral and topical pain medications, muscle relaxers, an immobilizer and lots of rest!
Maybe I just got lucky this time but after researching more about Schwartz Bio Research’s Premium Turmeric, I believe this supplement really did the trick!
Schwartz BioResearch ‘s Premium Turmeric supplement is more expensive than other brands I used in the past but behind the price of around $18 USD is a guaranteed all natural and allergen-free formula, packing the punch of a hefty 1500mg dose supplied three times a day for the 30 day supply with and additional 10mg of BioPerine (black pepper extract) in each dose to increase the absorption and bio-availability of the Turmeric.
What this means is by adding the black pepper extract, the Turmeric is more readily absorbed into circulation in its most effective form. I believe this claim because within a hour an hour of taking this supplement, I felt a warm thumping at the site of injury and even relief?! By third day using supplement, I was back to my baseline level of musculoskeletal pain and discomfort, perhaps a little less.
I consider this a win.
The pain of frequent dislocations and subluxations go beyond the injury with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. One tiny assault fires up a miserable process making it difficult for me to function at all. That is just the way my EDS life goes! Nonetheless, as I write this I am noting its been 6 hours since my last dose of this supplement and the sore spots and burning points are slowly starting to creep back out from my spine and from deep inside my hip. Earlier when I took my dose I experienced the same thing. Looks like I might keep this supplement on board for good!
Not so long ago, I was taking mega-doses of NSAIDS and my stomach fought against it so to the extent I ended up very sick unable to eat more days than not. While I still have those days as expected with the chronic nature of my disease processes, stopping the NSAIDS was paramount to feeling better from a gastrointestinal perspective.
I was feeling rather awful when I said goodbye to NSAIDS but supplementing the anti-inflammatory relief with Schwartz BioResearch’s Premium Turmeric Curcumin Formula is an effective route to better relieve my musculoskeletal pain naturally, without negative affects like increased heartburn, nausea and difficultly eating.
I am impressed with Schwartz BioResearch’s Premium Turmeric Curcumin Formula compared to other brands I tried in the past because it worked so quickly on my injury. This relief is superior to the brand I usually purchase. Using this supplement, I decreased the amount of “as needed” pain and muscle spasm medication I normally need to recover from such an injury. I cannot wait to see how I feel after a month of using this formula as its already helped so much with my acute EDS related injury!
While considered generally safe, there is the potential this supplement could interact with medications affecting bleeding times as well as aggravating gastrointestinal distress.
