 Millions of people deal with chronic pain caused by inflammation on a continuous basis and desperately want to get their life back so that they can enjoy regular activities without being slowed down by pain. Phenocane Curcumin Plus is particularly effective for those suffering from arthritis, sciatica, back pain, or injuries that continue to cause inflammation. The root cause of most chronic pain is inflammation. When the inflammation can be effectively reduced, the pain can also be managed. PGE1 Prostaglandin is the primary cause of inflammation in the body. The inflammation is then sustained by an enzyme called Cyclooxygenase 2 (COX2). The key for controlling inflammation is to inhibit COX2 production.

Many people use Aspirin as it is a COX2 inhibitor. However, Aspirin is also a COX1 inhibitor which is an important, protective prostaglandin for the lining of the stomach, digestive tract, and blood vessels. Consequently, Aspirin can cause serious side effects such as ulcers and vessel leakage when taken in large doses on a regular basis for chronic pain management. Phenocane provides effective pain relief and decreased inflammation by inhibiting COX2 without the major, negative side effects of a COX1 inhibitor. Recently, COX2 inhibitors such as Vioxx, Bextra, and Celebrex became popular for reducing inflammation and doctors were hopeful that these types of medications would provide great pain relief without the damaging side effects. Unfortunately, studies showed that these COX2 inhibitors were causing strokes and heart attacks by inducing blood clots and were removed from the market by the FDA. Phenocane Curcumin Plus effectively reduces inflammation and relieves pain and has not been found to promote any negative or dangerous side effects, thus making it safe for long-term and continual use.

Many cancers have also been linked to excessive inflammation. Research has shown that cancer cells are often surrounded by particularly high concentrations of COX2 enzymes. Therefore, an effective anti-inflammatory that adequately reduces COX2 in the body could be taken regularly to help reduce the risk and/or spread of cancerous cells. Phenocane Curcumin Plus could be the perfect choice for a natural way to combat the growth and spread of cancer.

There are several components that work together to make Phenocane Curcumin Plus such a powerful anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. These natural ingredients combine to offer maximum health benefits in a safe and gentle way.

Curcumin: Curcumin is a widely recognized anti-inflammatory. It has proven in studies to be as effective in reducing inflammation as cortisone.

Curcuminoids: These are the sub particles that make up curcumin. Curcuminoids are the extremely potent, reduced parts taken from curcumin, which is reduced from the herb called turmeric. Curcuminoids have been found to be very powerful COX2 inhibitors and are the key ingredient of Phenocane Curcumin Plus.

dl phenylalanine: Otherwise called DLPA. DLPA is a beneficial amino acid that is noted for helping the body maintain higher levels of serotonin. Serotonin is a hormone produced in the brain that promotes good feelings and has been proven to elevate mood, which then helps reduce feelings of pain.

Boswellia: Boswellia is an herb that is also fairly well-known for its ability to inhibit COX2 in the body. It operates by a slightly different mechanism than curcuminoids, causing it to enhance and maximize the COX2 inhibiting activity of Phenocane Curcumin Plus.

Nattokinase: This enzyme has been found to help reduce blood clots, thus, diminishing possible negative side effects from Phenocane as a COX2 inhibitor. Nattokinase is derived from the vegetable cheese called Natto, which is a popular soybean food in Japan.

My chiropractor has recommended taking Phenocane instead of ibruprofen for my hip pain. I've taken it in the past and know it does a good job in reducing inflammation and pain in joints. I've also given it to my elderly dog and it helps her also. Your prices are the best!

It has helped me with the inflamation of tendons in my arms caused by repetitive motion. Because the pain was so severe I started with a high dosage (2 pills 3x daily) but now I am down to 3 pills a day (morning, noon and night). I plan on ordering several more bottles.

My husband had had Parkinsons Disease for 20 years, and is never completely without skeletal pain and discomfort. As I am also nearing 70, I have normal degenerative joint pain and stiffness in the mornings particularly, in hands and shoulders and knees. Both of us benefit from daily Curcumin Plus, which gives us no gastric distress, and the more I read and hear about turmeric/curcumin, the more I believe it is beneficial even in ways we hadn't known! We surely can tell that it is without negative side effects, and our bodies let us know through discomfort if we haven't yet ingested it for the day! Thank you for such a great product.

I have had joint pain and swelling in my ankles, wrists, shoulders, and knees. I was on prednisone when a friend gave me a bottle of phenocane. I have only been taking it for 3 days and I cannot believe it. The joint pain is completely gone. I started the first day with just 2 pills and then the second needed 6 to get rid of the pain, the third day I only needed four. I will try only 2 or 3 and hopefully the pain will still be gone. I am so thankful for this product, I was so afraid I would need to keep taking prednisone. I am a skeptic and I would tell anyone with pain to try this product it is worth every penny.

My 88-year-old mother, who lives alone and is very self-sufficient, had horrible back pain that doctors told her was attributed to arthritis, but could not give her pain medications that would relieve the pain, mainly because of other drug interactions. I had a sample of Phenocane from our health food store and suggested she take it. In the evening of the first dose, she slept through the night without any pain when she awoke (something that had not happened in weeks). She has been taking Phenocane for three weeks now, and she has been free of the terrible back pain that she had been having. In fact, some of the meds (blood thinner)that she was taking have been reduced since on this product. We are all amazed and delighted, including her doctor.

This is one of only two really life changing products for me. It was introduced to me by my daughter, who is mainly into alternative forms of medicine for the horse ranches she has managed!! I was having so much pain in my foot after a major bone fusion. One year after the surgery, the doctors removed the two, three inch long screws that were in it to see if the pain would let up. It did not. I was taking anti-inflamatories, but they were so rough on my stomach. When I started taking the phenocane, the difference was almost immediate, and was so startling. I came right off of all other medications. This has simply been a very best-ever product. It is now four years later, and I wouldn't be without this stuff. I can take it on an empty stomach or full, in the morning or at night, and nothing seems to make any difference. It just simply does not cause upset ever. I love it. Thank you Dr Dunsbaugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had tried taking tumeric without the extra ingredients without success, but my friend encouraged me to try phenocane. Within three weeks, my thumb (which I couldn't bend at all) was usable again, shoulders didn't ache and I'm shoveling in the garden again. Very surprising to me was my sleep was better at night because I didn't automatically awaken when I turned over from joint discomfort. AND, Seacoast was a better alternative for price than any of my local sources ($7/bottle savings). I encouraged them to order from Seacoast!

I use this for overall pain from psoritic arthritis. It helps with the inflamation in my hip & shoulder from a fall as well. It also relieves pain from migraines. With all this relief I have much more energy. It works quickly even if I have been out of it for a time and start up I am pain free within one half hour or less. There is nothing I have tried that is so affective in pain relief which allows me to exercise & be very physically active.

I have had sore back pain off and on for 40 years resulting from a teenage motorcycle accident. Even it didn't "hurt" at times, I could always feel a tiny bit of soreness. A friend suggested I try Curcumin Plus (Phenocane) since it had worked for her own back pain. I took two capsules, waited 5 hours and took two more (as directed). A while after, it dawned on be that there was a total absence of any back discomfort. Amazing. It has been over a year and it is still effective. I have had virtually no instances of real pain since. I now swallow one capsule with Breakfast and one right after Lunch. If I have time to sleep in on Saturday or Sunday mornings, I sometimes take one at bedtime as insurance that back discomfort won't wake me up as it did in the past. No side effects or reactions to this either. I suggested it to my brother-in-law and he has had similar results. It seems to work against soreness and pain caused primarily by inflammation. I Googled the ingredients and read many reports. Some say that the "real" Curcumin that was effective in pain studies is pure Curcumin, and should not contain the other ingredients contained in Curcumin Plus. Well, I tried that version and it did not work well. In addition Seacoast sells this for a good price. I do NOT have any affiliation or interest in Seacoast by the way!! This is the real deal - I'm sure it will not work for everyone, but I highly recommend that anyone with a sore back try this.

This product works amazingly well. I had arthritis in my hip for about five years and was taking two Celebrex per day at the maximum dosage. I developed pain in my right knee but could not increase the Celebrex dosage so I just had to live with it. I tried Phenocane, which is now called Relevit, and found that it worked faster and better than the Celebrex. Though I no longer have arthritis, I have used Relevit to take care of miscellaneous pains from over exertion and am very impressed with it.

I have been athletic most of my life and managed to damage and wear out both my knee cartlages. I gradually started to put on weight because I no longer exercised due pain in my knees. I started on NSAID's and that helped but my knees were so far gone that I still limited my exercise. Then I tried Phenocane and my world has changed. I have managed to lose 30 pounds and keep them off. Less weight helps with the pain too so it's a double benifit for me. I have to lose a total of 100 pounds to be considered for knee replacement but with that weight off, I may be able to defer surgery. As a suppliment to my NSAID, I can be comfortable and continue relatively pain free in my exercise program. My knees are shot but I'm not anymore thanks to Phenocane. It took about a month to get up to speed but now I think it's great. I have been taking it for about 6 months so far. No side effects noted. I take a regular morning dose and if I'm painful at bedtime, I take an evening dose.

I was injured in combat in Vietnam, and have been suffering from hip pain for many years. I have been on Phenocane for 4 years now and my pain have been greatly reduced. My sister-in-law and her husband, who both have chronic back pain tried phenocane for over a year with outstanding pain relief. They both, however, had un welcomed side effects attributed to their twice a day usage. Both of them suffered breast and nipple pain, and my sister-in-law had her nipple area turned BLACK! Her doctor told her to stop taking the phenocane, which she did, and her symptoms finally reverted after six months. I on the other hand, have had no side effects (and I am still using it), but I'm only taking one capsule a day. My suggestion use with caution, and don't over medicate.....

I began using Phenocane at least a year ago, maybe longer, and I couldn't believe the immediate relief I had. I have two spinal injuries, upper and lower. The upper is derivative of an auto accident a few years ago that left me with a spinal cord injury...a bone splintered on the inside of the column and so close that it cuts into the spinal cord so slightly, barely touching, but enough to cause intense headaches and pain. A friend turned me onto Phenocane...couldn't hurt to try...and I have to tell you that it will eliminate pain and soreness almost completely, enough to keep me off the synthetic meds. I've turned alot of people onto it, and I did again just last night at a party I was attending when two people told me about their joint aches and pains. WONDERFUL STUFF! AND IT'S NATURAL! How do you beat that!?!

This is probably the best product I've ever used - at least, it has the most noticeable, fastest results! Relieves pain very quickly - sometimes in as little as 10 minutes - whether it's a headache or a muscle strain or other injury. I don't have too many problems so don't need it often, but my mother uses it daily, 2 or 3 times a day, because of chronic pain she has after a foot/ankle surgery - she was in constant pain before finding this. We have another friend with rheumatoid arthritis who credits Phenocane with literally saving her life, she was in so much pain before. Every person I've recommended it to has been helped by it - and quickly enough that they were amazed.

It was effective in reducing pain the first day I tried it. A friend noticed it in a health food store and tried it with great results. I have used it for 2 months now and just ordered more. This is the first time I have purchased a herbal product for my back pain (40 years of back problems from a motorcycle accident)- up to now I was basically skeptical that anything other than prescription drugs could help. Curcumin Plus reduces or on most days prevents the pain, so I don't need to take those pain killers. Seems to relieve some mild arthritis I have in my joints also. It really works. My friend was in worst shape than me and is now doing things she hasn't done in years due to her back pain.

After trying a couple different products I discovered Curcumin Plus (Phenocane) during a severe bout with R.A. After taking Curcumin Plus for a week I could begin to close my hands, bend the toe joints when I walked, see the swelling in every joint begin to recede and generally feel better for the first time in four months. Now, a year and a half later I am taking only one capsule a day and living life again... something I thought I would not be able to do again. I type, write by hand, crochet, knit, bead, turn the lids on most bottles (jars are still a challenge) and use a manual can opener again. Simple daily procedures that were denied me during the R.A. attack. I highly recommend this product. Especially that it rebuilds the immune system... not just masks the problem.
