Curcumin reduced OA symptoms and inflammation

In one study, 50 people with OA took 200 mg a day of a complex of curcumin and phosphatidylcholine or a placebo. After three months, while the placebo group showed modest improvement, the curcumin group reported 58 percent better symptom scores, and had a fourfold increase in the distance they could walk on a treadmill at a slight incline, adding about 839 feet. In a subgroup with inflammation, levels of inflammatory C-reactive protein decreased 93 percent among those who took curcumin.
