Curcumin, a substance in turmeric, may help to reduce inflammation. Several studies suggest that it might ease symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, like pain and inflammation. In one study, turmeric worked about as well as ibuprofen for reducing pain. Other compounds in turmeric have also been found to be anti-inflammatory, and it’s thought that these components may act synergistically with each other and/or curcumin to block inflammation. Curcumin is a key ingredient in our ActiFlex supplement.

Broccoli contains a compound called sulforaphane shown to have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties. Research in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism also suggests it could prevent or slow the progress of osteoarthritis. Researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) discovered that sulforaphane blocks the enzymes that cause joint destruction by stopping a key molecule known to cause inflammation.
