I have a right shoulder replacement which gives me a lot of pain.
Q. Dear Terry, “I have a right shoulder replacement which gives me a lot of pain. Any ideas which could help in my situation? Thank you.” — Ruth V., Cheyenne, WY
A. Dear Ruth, I would recommend trying a combination of high-absorption curcumin with boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase to address the pain. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking one to two capsules of this blend three times a day.
Keep in mind that standard curcumin is very poorly absorbed, so make sure you choose a product that contains high absorption curcumin that has been proven in published human studies. The best form I have ever found uses micronized curcumin blended with turmeric essential oils in a patented process. This curcumin has been shown in published human studies to be up to 10 times better absorbed than standard curcumin. It’s also important to find products that feature a boswellia extract that has filtered out the majority of beta-boswellic acid, to at least 5% or less. Unlike most boswellic acids, beta-boswellic acid is actually pro-inflammatory. Removing it greatly enhances the potency of the boswellia extract. You also want a boswellia extract that includes at least 10% or more of acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA), the most active component of boswellia.
