Is Turmeric Enough for Joint Pain?

Turmeric is SUPER popular right now – and for good reason.  It is an incredibly powerful anti-inflammatory.

But what most people don’t realize is that inflammation is a symptom – not a root problem.  If you have inflammation it’s because you have an underlying issue that is causing it! Mild to moderate joint pain is generally due to the loss of mobility or cartilage in the joint space. In more severe cases that space is completely gone, and you have bone on bone (osteoarthritis). Ouch!

This isn’t to say that turmeric can’t be an effective natural treatment for relief – but it requires significant dosages used alone, takes longer to show effects and doesn’t get to the bottom of joint pain. The the active ingredients in turmeric can be hard to absorb – and relief requires high doses over an extended period.

We’ve been formulating natural pain relief products for years, and saw the potential that turmeric had to offer. So, we fermented turmeric – to make it more bioavailable and to amplify its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects! One study found that fermenting turmeric doubles the bioavailability of the bioactive curcumin 2x, amplifies antioxidant activity by 27x, enhances its anti-inflammatory activity, and boosts total phenolic content (meaning active ingredients) by 5x!

If the cause of your inflammation is mild to moderate joint pain then the best way to take turmeric is in conjunction with a pain relief formula containing BiovaFlex® natural eggshell membrane – to effectively treat the discomfort of inflammation AND help treat the root of the problem, helping to rebuild the cartilage in between the joints.

Both eggshell membrane and turmeric work primarily by anti-inflammatory pathways, inhibiting or – “turning down the dial” – on inflammatory immune chemicals called cytokines. But eggshell membrane provides joint “food” that provides the raw materials for joint cartilage “scaffolding,” which compliments the benefits of fermented turmeric!

But, why BiovaFlex®natural eggshell membrane?

Not all eggshell membrane products are created equal! Only BiovaFlex® natural eggshell membrane gives relief from joint pain in just 5 days, where other NEM products can take 7-10 days. It works faster because:

  • It is water soluble – so it’s absorbed into your system much faster
  • Just like turmeric, BiovaFlex®natural eggshell membrane is proven to reduce inflammation, where other NEM products do not
  • those taking Biovaflex® are 5x more likely to experience a 50% reduction in pain versus glucosamine, 3 x more likely to experience a 50% reduction in pain versus a leading Rx drug for joint pain.


Biovaflex® natural eggshell membrane is included in all formulations of Genuine Health’s full line of pain relief products. Including, fast joint care+ with fermented turmeric, the only joint care formula that nourishes and repairs joints with the unique combination of BiovaFlex® natural eggshell membrane and fermented organic turmeric, for relief in just 5 days.

Bottom line: turmeric has amazing potential to relieve pain and inflammation – but choose a fermented turmeric, that is combined with effective, natural BiovaFlex® natural eggshell for amplified anti-inflammatory action that also treats the root of your joint pain!
