There might have been a time when all of us decided to treat our headaches, backaches and other body pains with medications, based on ibuprofen (Motrin, Nurofen, Advil & Nuprin).
Ibuprofen has the ability to provide immediate relief from any type of pain, but will not solve the long-term problems inside the body.
By consuming too much of this pills, you could experience certain side-effects like hypertension (high blood pressure), erectile dysfunction, diarrhea/nausea, gastrointestinal bleeding, increased risk of heart attack, potential kidney cancer formation and others.
When it comes to our health, we are luckily enough that Mother Nature gave us an amazing remedy that can provide numerous health benefits. Turmeric!
Turmeric is packed with a very powerful compound, known as curcumin, which acts like a true miracle for your health. Turmeric tea falls into the healthiest, most ancient and most effective natural remedies for getting rid of pain and inflammation.
