Feel Pain? Try Curamin Extra Strength!

You, our faithful readers and subscribers, voted Curamin Extra as your #1 favorite product we offer here on the site... I can’t say I'm surprised!

So we've decided to write this post dedicated to all things Curamin Extra Strength. This article contains Information regarding why you should take it over other painkillers, what is in Curamin Extra that makes it so great, and how you should take it to relieve your pain.

If you've ever wondered what the difference is between Curamin and CuraMed, both popular products from Terry Naturally, you can find the answers and more information regarding the products here: CuraMed: All Your Questions Answered.

As you know, we offer several highly absorbable curcumin products. The strongest of the lot is Curamin Extra Strength. We always keep Curamin Extra on hand for various reason. It is part of our Natural Remedy Home Pharmacy.

Imagine a remedy for those pesky headaches that come after a long day at work. A natural answer to chronic pain that doesn't bring all of the nasty side effects some of the other pain relievers bring. Curamin really is the solution and there's thousands of testimonials to prove it. Here's one straight from Terry Naturally's Website:

"I never believed it would work. I took the Extra Strength Curamin 2 times a day, and after several weeks my pain became less and is barely noticeable now. My pain was a result of overworking my right upper arm. I saw an ortho MD with no relief. Searched the net for a pain remedy and found Curamin. Unbelievable, but true!"

According to the AMA (American Medical Association) pain is the #1 symptom that drives people to go to the doctor or to seek alternative health advice. Pain is implicated in just about every disease state that ails us. From joint issues and chronic migraines, to colitis and muscle spasms, pain is the common symptom that just can't be ignored.

So, why take Curamin Extra Strength and not an over the counter painkiller?   

We all know and have probably used prescriptions, over the counter painkillers, and anti-inflammatory medications. But what you may not know is that they have very serious and unwanted side effects.

Remember the popular drug Vioxx? For awhile it was being prescribed for everything from headaches to spinal pain. It was pulled from the market because a large amount of people taking Vioxx were dying from heart attacks and strokes. And the non-prescription options aren’t much better. Over the counter NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) can cause relux, stomach ulcers, and heart attacks.

Some of the more popular over the counter NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) are: naproxen, ibuprofen and aspirin.

Curamin Extra Strength is a formula that covers several biological factors associated with pain. It is a proprietary blend of  four natural painkillers in one tablet. It is your best natural option for pain and inflammation relief, period.

What is in Curamin Extra Strength that makes it so effective?

Here are the 4 all natural, powerhouse ingredients that boosts Curamin Extra Strength to the top of everyone's pain relief charts:

DLPA (DL-phenylalanine)

Did somebody say DLPA? I don’t know about you, but pain makes me grumpy. There is a reason that pain changes your mood; Pain signals in the brain can get into a close-looped circuit. The endorphins that help relieve pain and improve your mood can get stuck in the brain and not ever arrive to the tissues where they are needed. DLPA helps endorphins get to the needed area, which means faster relief and less pain-triggered bad moods!



Curamin Extra has a specialized form of boswellia extract. Many less-expensive boswellia  extracts may have beta-boswellic acid which actually PROMOTES inflammation and pain. That's never good!

Curamin Extra Strength has AKAB boswellic acid which is standardized to less than 5% beta-boswellic acid.  In other words, the AKAB guarantees that you aren’t taking the pro-inflammatory type or boswellia.

In one study AKAB boswellia was shown to reduce symptoms by 60% in patients with arthritis. 


Turmeric is a root vegetable that has been highly prized and eaten in India for thousands upon thousand of years. Curcumin is the helpful extract from that bright yellow turmeric root. Curcumin supplements are readily available but not all of them are created equal.

BCM-95® Curcumin is made by a patented process. It contains both curcumonoids and tumerones whereas other supplements just have curcumin extract. Because of the curcumonids and tumerones, BCM-95® is 10 times more effective than other. BCM-95® curcumin has been studied and proven to be just as effective as NSAIDs without all the serious side effects (like death).

Yes, that's correct! Turmeric has been proven to be just as effective as Ibuprofen and any of your other generic aspirin.


Nattokinase is an enzyme that comes from naturally fermented beans. Enyzmes do the job of breaking and building up substances in our bodies.

Nattokinase is an enzyme that can break up fibrin or clotting substances in the bloodstream. This helps to reduce overall pain and inflammation. Nattokinase is considered to be one of the most efficient natural blood thinners out there.

(Look for our upcoming blog post that will go deeper into Nattokinase and all of its benefits.)

Curamin Extra Strength is packed with everything you need to relieve pain and it's safer to take then those NSAIDs you get over the counter. Want to stock your shelves with Curamin Extra? You can buy it here: Terry Naturally's Curamin Extra Strength.
