    • The effect for rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes pain and swelling of the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis also leads to joint damage and destruction. Currently available treatments are designed to ease the symptoms and disability caused by the disease. Although recent advancements in rheumatoid arthritis treatment have led to a greater number of available therapies, many of those therapies come with side effects that prompt some users to discontinue treatment or seek complementary and alternative treatments. Those who took an extract of the herb's roots experienced greater improvement in rheumatoid arthritis symptoms than those who took the anti-inflammatory drug sulfasalazine. Researchers say Chinese herbs has been used in China for centuries to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases, and some small clinical trialshave suggested that the Chinese herbal remedy may benefit people with rheumatoid. Researcher Raphaela Goldbach-Mansky, MD, MHS, of the National Institutes of Health, and colleagues say the study was too short to show if Chinese herbs also helped to slow the progression of joint destruction from rheumatoid arthritis. But if further studies confirm these results in larger numbers of people, Chinese herbs may provide an affordable natural treatment option for rheumatoid arthritis.
