In animal studies it has been observed that Curcumin is effective in relieving pain. Curcumin blocks numerous inflammatory signaling molecules that aggravate the inflammation of painful joints. The anti-rheumatic activity of Curcumin, isolated from the rhizome of Curcuma longa, has been clinically demonstrated in cases of rheumatoid arthritis.
Due to the anti-inflammatory activity of Curcumin, the powdered rhizomes of Curcuma Longa have been found to be effective in the treatment of sprains and inflammation also.
