Curcuminoids found to prevent Rheumatoid Arthritis

Curcuminoids are the group of compounds found in curcumin, derived from turmeric.  Researchers at the Universityarthritis hands of Arizona and University of Kansas tested the effect of several curcuminoids on laboratory animals when arthritis was induced.  They found that the curcuminoids were efficacious in preventing joint inflammation when treatment was started before the onset of joint inflammation.

Curcumin has been used for centuries as a treatment for inflammation, but this is the the first in vivo (living organism) study on its effect on arthritis.
