Herbs Beat Pain Drug in Study

In a recent study presented at the World Congress on Osteoarthritis in San Diego, a combination remedy of two herbal extracts called Rhulief ™, demonstrated superior efficacy compared with the prescription drug celecoxib (the generic of the brand name Celebrex®) for relieving osteoarthritis pain of the knee. The Rhulief product contains an extract of turmeric root (Curcuma longa) called BCM-95, and an extract of boswellia (Boswellia serrata) called BosPure. Both turmeric root and boswellia have long histories of traditional use for the treatment of arthritis pain.


Osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint disorder, and is common among people over age 55. Caused by wear and tear of the joints, osteoarthritis is characterized by pain and stiffness in joints. Exercise and placing weight on joints generally increase the severity of discomfort. Overweight people have increased risk of osteoarthritis in hips, knees, ankles and foot joints. According the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, approximately 27 million Americans had osteoarthritis in 2005, and that number is climbing.

In various health categories, a number of comparative studies between herbal remedies and pharmaceutical drugs have shown better efficacy and safety with herbs. Both turmeric root and boswellia enjoy long histories of safe traditional use for the treatment of pain. In toxicity studies, these herbs and their extracts show none of the health problems associated with the NSAID’s. Finding safer options to replace potentially harmful drugs is a major health priority, as both osteoarthritis and NSAID use are expected to increase. The Rhulief product, which is marketed in India, is sold in the U.S. under the name Healthy Knees and Joints, by Wisconsin-based EuroPharma.
