Curcumin May Help Relieve Knee Joint Discomfort

Curcumin May Help Relieve Knee Joint Discomfort

Curcumin has numerous properties that can help promote joint health. A recent study has found that a dispersible curcumin supplement with a curcuminoid concentration of 50% may help relieve knee joint discomfort.

Participants in the study included 101 adults. They were given 1,000 mg of curcumin extract or a placebo daily for 8 weeks. The Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) was used to evaluate knee discomfort at baseline, week 4, and week 8. Joint function was evaluated using the Japanese Orthopedic Association Score for Osteoarthritic Knees and performance tests.

Participants in the curcumin group saw significant improvements in the KOOS scores for knee discomfort. They also saw greater improvements in joint function performance tests compared to the placebo group.

The study was conducted by researchers from Murdoch University. It was published on December 23, 2021 in the journal Nutrients.
