NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:


Curcuminoids are natural phenols provided notably by Curcuma longa. These compounds are known for their strong antioxidant properties, and have been used for the management of joint health. This meta-analysis focused on the effectiveness of curcuminoids for the management of knee osteoarthritis.


Seven studies have been included (797 participants). In comparison to placebo, curcumonoids have been shown to reduce knee pain (standardized mean difference: -3.45; 95% CI: -5.52 to -1.38, p = 0.001) and to improve quality of life (mean difference in Lequesne index: -2.69; 95% CI: -3.48 to -1.90, p < 0.00001).

There were significantly fewer effects on pain relief, knee stiffness and physical function with curcuminoids compared with ibuprofen. Significant improvements in Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index total scores, with significant reductions in the use of rescue medication were also observed with curcuminoids.


Therefore, this meta-analysis shows that curcuminoids are effective for the management of knee pain and quality of life of patients with knee osteoarthritis.
