Widely known as a curry spice, curcumin has a long history of use in the treatment of inflammatory conditions in Eastern Medicine. The spice is gaining interest in modern medicine for a diverse array of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis. Evidence indicates curcumin can effectively suppress inflammation through inhibition of pro-inflammatory cytokine production as well as modulate B cell and T cell differentiation and function. The following article will evaluate the existing clinical trial literature assessing the impact of curcumin on patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Potential mechanisms of action, bioavailability issues, and effective dosing will be described.
