Adam’s Story: How his knee swelling went down

Last spring, Adam was playing indoor soccer, twisted his knee when his cleats got stuck in the artificial turf and heard a loud “pop.” His ACL and meniscus were torn.

He needed to get surgery and had an ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair. After the surgery, he had persistent swelling in his knee that worried him even though he had taken Ibuprofen for 8 weeks already.

During his physical therapy sessions, we observed that he had a strange pocket of fluid on the outside of his knee above his knee cap. It was slightly painful to touch it, but his surgeon said it was a common occurrence after surgery.

Adam asked me if there were any supplements he could take to reduce his pain and swelling because he was tired of taking Ibuprofen. As a physical therapist, I have many clients who ask me about the best ways to reduce inflammation.

A little inflammation is a natural part of the healing process; however, excessive inflammation can delay healing. After most surgeries, inflammation is usually increased due to trauma that occurs to soft tissue during surgery.

Surgery, as you know, is an invasive technique and it puts the body through significant trauma. If the immune system is compromised, many doctors will not perform surgery due to the risk of medical complications.

I told Adam about our turmeric and suggested he read the information on our website to learn how our turmeric could help him. He realized we had the highest potency turmeric available and ordered a bottle on Amazon.

After two weeks of taking our turmeric, he told me he had less pain and swelling in his knee. He stopped taking Ibuprofen and he was starting to exercise more. The pocket of swelling by his knee started to decrease and we were able to restore his motion and strength in the following months.

Adams’s experience is similar to what is shown in the studies on turmeric extract. Several years ago, I started reading through dozens of studies on turmeric to discover the optimal dose for reducing pain and inflammation.

In my research, I found many studies showed that 500-2000 mg of turmeric extract per day can reduce knee pain and inflammation. In fact, several systematic reviews suggested that 500 mg-2000 mg of turmeric extract daily can provide benefits similar to Ibuprofen.

I believe too many people are taking pain medications and Ibuprofen is often the only option offered to them. I don’t think turmeric extract will completely replace Ibuprofen, but it has the potential to help the millions of people who take Ibuprofen.

In addition, many people have experienced stomach cramps and digestives problems when taking Ibuprofen, especially those who have a sensitive digestive system.

As we have heard in headline news for the past few years, there is an opioid epidemic in the United States because it’s very easy to develop an addiction to prescription medications like Oxycontin, Percocet, and Hydrocodone.

A big part of my mission is to help people reduce their reliance on prescription medicine and find alternative ways to reduce pain and inflammation.

Several years ago when I learned about turmeric’s potential to help people, I started looking for a good turmeric supplement. Then, I found a great injustice in the turmeric industry.

Most turmeric capsules have only a fraction of what you need. Most suppliers only give you 50-100 mgs of turmeric extract per capsule. In fact, the top-selling Turmeric on Amazon has only 50 mgs of turmeric extract.

You might think: how could so many people be wrong?

Well, it’s easy. It’s cheap to buy and companies buy reviews. Then, it’s just a numbers game after that.

Think about it. You can’t trust what you read unless you do your research.

When you wake up in the morning do you want to take 15 turmeric capsules just to get the same benefit as taking one of our capsules?

I am thinking you would soon find reasons to skip taking it. However, it’s possible that you may enjoy taking capsules during the day if you pace yourself.

You could run into an issue though if you want to up your dosage.

Most studies show that you need 500-2000 mg of turmeric extract per day. That could mean you are taking 30 capsules just to get the same benefit as 2 of our capsules. To be honest, I have a hard enough time just taking 2.

What if your loved ones are sick? Do you want them taking a supplement that is just a placebo?

When I found out that my dad had an inflamed prostate I could recommend our Turmeric for him because I knew how good it was.

Because we are so sure you will start seeing results within 1-2 weeks, we have a 100-day money-back guarantee. And for all those who love saving money, I have good news.

Our turmeric has the best price per milligrams of turmeric extract on the market. We are taking less margin on our product because we want you to be healthy.

If you do your research, you will find our turmeric is 15x more potent than many brands. One of our capsules is equal to 15 capsules from many brands making it the best choice for you.

You can find our turmeric on our website or on Amazon.com. You can also read our other powerful stories below.
