This active ingredient in the spice turmeric not only protects you from cancer and heart disease, but also has been shown to relieve the pain and inflammation associated with healing from surgery and arthritis. Research has also shown that it can significantly reduce cartilage destruction by inhibiting chemicals that instigate inflammation in the body.
Green Tea Extract
The main active ingredient in green tea, a catechin (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), not only enhances fat loss and reduces the risk of certain cancers — much like curcumin — but also aids joint recovery. Research has discovered that EGCG inhibits cartilage breakdown by blocking chemicals that lead to inflammation in the body.
