Gurkemeie og dens positive helseegenskaper.

Gurkemeie er en plante som gjennom mange hundre år har vært kjent for dens positive helseegenskaper – men hva sier egentlig forskning på området? Kan gurkemeie virkelig hjelpe mot alt vi har hørt at den kan hjelpe mot? Du kjenner nok gurkemeie best som hovedkrydderet i curry, den har en varm og bittersterk smak som gir curry den særegne smaken. Det er roten av gurkemeie som brukes til å lage medisin.


Gurkemeie urteekstrakt blir i disse dager brukt mot osteoartrose / slitasjegikt, halsbrann, magesmerter, diarè, tarmgass, mageproblemer, tap av appetitt, lever problemer og galleblære symptomer. Forskningen sier at gurkemeie kan gi lindring ved magesymptomer og at den også kan gi smertelindring ved slitasjegikt – i en studie (3, 4) viste også gurkemeie å ha like god effekt som det smertestillende medikamentet ibuprofen i lindring av slitasjegikt smerter.


Gurkemeie har en anti-inflammatorisk effekt.


Dosering – brukt i forskningsstudier:

Mot mageproblemer: Oralt (via munnen) – 500 mg / 4 ganger om dagen.

Mot slitasjegikt: Oralt – 500 mg / 2 ganger om dagen.


Kan jeg ta gurkemeie med andre medikamenter?

Gurkemeie senker blodkoagulering i blodet / tynner ut blodet, og bør dermed ikke tas med andre medikamenter som har samme effekt. Dette inkluderer: aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, andre), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, Ibux, andre), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, andre), dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, warfarin (Coumadin), og andre.


Produktet – organisk rotekstrakt pulver:

Swanson Turmeric (Gurkemeie): Vi anbefaler Swanson, da de er kjent for å bruke de beste råvarene.


Hva andre sier:

«I am amazed, for three years my hands have been getting steadily worse with arthritus, with fingers locking up and refusing to work first thing in the morning. Being very active and a DIY enthusiast it was becoming difficult to do any real work. The capsules arrived a week ago and I have been taking one in the morning and one at night – so far after the first three days although stiff the fingers work and have not locked up for a couple of days. They appear to work for me but everyone is different so this is not advice to anyone in anyway just to start taking them.» – Brea Marie


«I bought these because of the varied health claims from the people who reviewed this, and from reading about it on the internet.
I’ve only been taking Turmeric for a few weeks now, and although my joints feel a little easier I don’t honestly feel I can give full marks yet because I feel I need to take them for a bit longer before I get the full benefits.  But so far I feel I’m heading in the right direction with these capsules.  And they are very reasonably priced on Amazon.» – Mrs. J
