Last Saturday, I played in an all-day Ultimate Frisbee tournament where our team lost in the finals, our 7th game. For those who don’t know Ultimate, it’s a fast-paced sprint that combines features of soccer and football. The average age at the tournament was mid-twenties to 30, so that makes the game even faster for someone like me who turns 41 in a few short weeks. I’m glad I’m able to run in these events but I was sore for days afterwards.
I won’t lie. Hitting 40 was like walking off a cliff. I was surprised at how the aches lingered just a bit longer and minor injuries seem to occur more easily. I had thought my older friends had been joking, egging me on, but they weren’t. I needed an additional strategy to stay active, as I plan to play ultimate well into my 50’s at as high a level as I can.
FDA strengthens language on pain medication “Heart attack and stroke risk increase even with short-term use, and the risk may begin within a few weeks of starting to take an NSAID.”
For years when I recovered from a tournament or any grueling activity, my answer was the traditional Advil or Tylenol. Although this strategy would work, eventually I developed an allergy to Ibuprofen, the active ingredients in Advil and Motrin. I also didn’t like that I was so reliant on a synthetic pain medication that was recently linked with heart conditions for older adults (and with extended use).
In fact, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which include Advil, naproxen, Motrin, etc,. have been linked with a greater risk of heart attack or stroke when taken in high doses over the long-term. In 2015, the FDA strengthened it’s warning on NSAIDs, including that “Heart attack and stroke risk increase even with short-term use, and the risk may begin within a few weeks of starting to take an NSAID.”

I live an active lifestyle. In addition to Ultimate, I use my hands as a musician and love to hike, mountain bike, snowboard and kayak. With my over 40 aches and pains increasing, I needed to find a better solution to NSAIDs.
Enter Liposomal Turmeric from Purathrive. I came across this product while looking for an Turmeric liquid extract to use in my morning superfood smoothie. I’d been taking pill supplements until I discovered that the pills where not all that effective. Your body can only absorb so much of a beneficial compound during a given time. That’s where Purathrive has solved a key problem – the liposome formulation increases absorption up to 20X.
