Turmeric for pain...with black pepper (piperine)?


Recommended Posts

Rainy season not good for my hip that 6 years ago suffered a botched hip replacement surgery here (redone at the VA hospital in Phoenix). Pain radiating down to the calf area and back of knee. Have started to take 2 capsules of turmeric (100 mg. ea.) a day and so far not much relief. Read that if taken with black pepper (piperine) 20 mg. together this helps speed up the process. One question is where do I get this here, and also any comments on this treatment one way or another from those who have experience with this? I try to stay away from prescription pain meds, and would be happy to have other comments on alternative, natural treatments. Gracias

I eat lots of turmeric  sometimes with pepper sometimes not because I cook with turmeric  and other spices a lot.. I never noticed it did anything to pain. 

If you google TURMERIC FOR PAIN you will see a lot of positive reviews, and also better with the black pepper for faster absorption. I think the the black pepper is in tablet form also...my question is where do I get that? I am not talking about turmeric and black pepper as a spice, because the result would be inconsequential for my purpose.

I've had amazing results with Pain Flex Forte. You can buy it at the Farmacia San Andres west of Ajijic.

I was skeptical about it but it really works.
