Aches and pains come in a wide variety for many people… and in our family – my husband and I suffer from inflammation and  injuries that cause uncomfortable daily pain.  Supplements and healthy eating eating help us with pain control so that pain medicines – especially narcotics are not needed as often.

Nutraviva Turmeric Curcumin Supplement



About 3 years ago my husband was diagnosed with a Perforated disk between the L4 and L5 region in his spine, that leaks spinal fluid and irritates the nerve causing inflammation.  Now, this diagnoses came after a few years of suffering without knowing the cause.  Pain medication, anti-inflammatory medicine and even Cortisone shots are all provided to him to assist with pain management and while they may take the edge off sometimes (not all the time), my husband literally lives day in and day out in constant pain.  We are very selective in our physical activities in that one wrong move could cripple him and doctors do not want to operate since he is so young and having to redo the surgery several times through out the rest of his live will be inevitable once the surgery is performed.  I have minor injuries – all of which are a challenge to work with, but compared to my husband – not nearly as bad.

While we live daily with our aches and pains, we both do our best to increase the quality of our life by including healthy eating, exercise and of course supplements to increase mobility as well as decrease our pain levels.  Since pain medicine is not something we enjoy taking or the side effects it gives to both of us, we try not to take them as much as possible.  I have been reading about Turmeric and the benefits it offered so my husband and I were very excited to try this supplement out and see how it worked for both of us.  Honestly, the benefits of Turmeric are quite plentiful so we were excited to see and feel what it could do for us.  Even if it didn’t help tremendously with our normal pains, since both my husband and I are experience signs of Arthritis, we were in hopes to see some relief there.

Why is Nutraviva’s Turmeric Supplement the Premium Choice?

The major problem with turmeric is that the active component ‘Curcumin’ does not disolve very well and the efficiency of transporting it into the body’s cells is compromised. However Nutraviva’s premium Turmeric overcomes this problem as its a patented blend of Curcumin C3 Complex with Bioperine, which is proven to increase the bioavailability and absorption of Curcumin, making it much more effective than standard Turmeric supplements. We are not simply selling Turmeric extract like many other brands, but instead a premium Turmeric Curcumin C3 Complex with Bioperine!

Nutraviva Turmeric Curcumin Supplement

I’m not gonna lie, the pills are kind of larger than I had expected and it freaked me out quite a bit.  I love the fact that when you do take them however, that they do not have any funky after taste or any taste at all – major bonus.  Keep in mind though, that because they are so large, make sure you swallow it with a lot of water so it goes down easily.  After taking the pill just two days – my husband and I both noticed that while still achy and sore, our inflammation was tolerable.  MAJOR BONUS!  After a month of using the product while we still have pain and inflammation, we definitely noticed the difference in our mobility and how we felt.  It’s hard to explain because we still experience pain, but you can tell a difference in how our body reacts to certain things and how we feel.  Mind you – this is not a cure all, pain be gone type of pill but a supplement to help with ease of pain as well as other benefits.

After reading about Turmeric, some of the benefits include:  Ease of Arthritic Pain, Bad Cholesterol, Inflammation, Blood Sugar Imbalances, Promotes Heart Health, Aids in Digestion, Helps prevent the early manifestation of Parkinson’s Disease, slows or delays Liver damage, slows or helps reverse Alzheimer’s Disease, Insulin Resistance, helps heal inflammatory bowl disease.  This list is a small one compared to what I have been reading about Turmeric.  While I’m not a doctor, it’s been nice to find different articles and first hand reviews on the product itself.

Like I mentioned earlier, this is not necessarily a cure all – or at least not yet or not for us as of yet… but it has helped to make pain a little more bearable by easing a lot of our inflammation.  Yes – my husband and I still experience a ton of pain but it’s nice to know there are supplements out there along with those we already take that help with the issue instead of masking it like pain medicine does or dulling it.  It truly feels like its combating our pain issues to make our quality of life better.  Overall – if you experience some of these issues – while I’m not doctor, I suggest talking to your Physician to see if this may be something you can add to your daily vitamin intake, maybe it will work for you.  I know my husband and I will continue to have Turmeric – more specifically Nutraviva’s Turmeric Curcumin supplement as a part of our daily supplement regimen.

I am pretty lucky in that I don’t have really bad “eye genes”… yup – that’s what I call it… and I’m lucky that my parents and their relatives don’t have much puffy eyes, saggy skin or dark circles near their eye area.  The great thing about that is not only that I can continue to look youthful, but that I don’t have to worry too much about cucumbers for the puffiness and concealer to conceal or color correct the dark circles.  But – I do still experience all of those things from time to time.  Let’s face it – I’m a mother of 3 very active boys and honestly – I survive on just a couple of hours a sleep a night, so I’m always interested in a product that will help me out whenever I need it.

Insta Natural Eye Gel

The formula is loaded with skin repairing, firming and age defying ingredients for your eyes and I love that this product is not sticky and applies evenly and smoothly.  A little goes a long way so I had to make sure not to use too much, one pump of the product was more than enough.  The eye gel is thick, so it gives an almost cooling effect when applied near the eye area… which I really enjoyed.  Since I have sensitive eyes – I am often very selective with testing out products because it causes my eyes to be very irritated and this product worked well on my sensitive skin and eyes without issue.  After the first use I felt like the skin around my eyes felt refreshed and awake.  There is a light cucumber scent – very light which I liked a lot.

I was not completely happy at first with the dispenser this product came with.  It took a few pumps before the product started to come out.  While I was a bit frustrated at first, once the product came out the first time, it was easy to use thereafter.  The packing is simple but I like that it’s pretty durable and fit perfectly in my skin care cabinet.  The gel itself is pretty nice and I love that if needed – I can use it as a moisturizer on my entire face… woohoo – bonus!

Before using Insta Natural Eye Gel – early morning

Again – I don’t have very heavy puffiness under my eyes – but since I don’t get much sleep at night, some mornings they are pretty prominent.  Adding just a little of the eye gel makes a huge difference and you can see a change through out the day.  This gel has been working wonders for me on days where my allergies are terrible because it really helps to soften the puffiness under my eyes or lightening any dark circles from sleepless nights due to sneezing.  I honestly am very impressed.  As you can see from my before and after photos (the before taken with my DSLR and the after taken with my Note 2), the puffiness from my eyes disappeared a few hours after applying the gel.

I’m quite impressed with this product, even if the need for use of it is not as often, I know it will do the job.  If you have puffy eyes or dark circles under your eyes, with continued use I know you will see a difference.  To say I was amazed is an understatement, because I have already suggested this product to a few friends and family members who are loving it as I’m typing this.  With an affordable price tag, there really is no harm in trying it out and Insta Natural offers a 100 day hassle free money back guarantee.  Oh – and did I mention is this a cruelty free product?  That’s a benefit in its own.

What are your favorite eye creams or gels?  Is this a product you think you would like to give a try?
