Which pain reliever should you take?

There’s been a lot of conversation in the news lately over the use of Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as Advil and ibuprofen to reduce symptoms related to our current challenging times. 

Your choice of pain medication is important, not just during a pandemic but anytime you reach for a pill bottle. While many over the counter pain relievers can ease the discomfort of fever or injury, it should be noted that long-term use of NSAIDs have been linked to stomach ulcers, kidney damage and high blood pressure. 

If you’re wondering what is the safest pain reliever to take, it’s important to discuss your concerns with your doctor especially if you require long-term pain management.

A few years ago I suffered from a sports injury and began taking NSAIDs to curb the pain while my body healed. When NSAIDs upset my stomach, I began looking for an alternative. In my deep dive into Ayurveda, I had learned first hand about the power of the ancient spice Turmeric in reducing inflammation in the body, which causes aches and pains. Unable to find a supplement with the quality and potency I desired, I decided to make my own! 

This is the story behind Fusionary Formulas and why our top-selling supplement Turmeric Gold is my to-go when I experience pain, whether it’s stiff joints or headaches.  This powerful supplement is a blend of 98 percent curcumin, black pepper extract and turmeric, and it has helped so many customers manage pain so they can continue to live a full life doing what they love.
