SPICEOFEN is a powder blend of Turmeric (Alleppey Double Strength), Cinnamon (Ceylon, True), Ginger, Paprika (Sweet Noble), Cloves, and Black Pepper.

Over the centuries, all of these spices have traditionally been used as alternative remedies to help with a range of symptoms.


Please note that Spiceofen is classed as a ‘food’ and should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

Spiceofen was formulated by Neil Robinson, the first vegan professional footballer on the planet. Neil played all his football career as a vegetarian and the last 10 years of his professional career as a vegan. Neil has been vegan since 1980.

During his football career, Neil had five operations, two of which were to remove the medial meniscus from both knees which, in latter years, left him with osteo-arthritis in his knees.

Black Pepper

  • Powders are easily absorbed in the gut - capsules have to first be broken down before gut absorption can take place.(1)
  • Because of their size, capsules may only contain the supposed ‘active ingredients’ of each spice.
  • Capsules also contain unwanted ‘fillers’(2) such as: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Polyvinylpyrrolidone, Croscarmellose Sodium, Silicon Dioxide, Talc, Glyceryl Behenate.
  • A study(3),(4) comparing Turmeric & and it's active ingredient, Curcumin, showed that Turmeric, as a whole spice, was better than Curcumin alone.
  • Spiceofen powder is a WHOLE FOOD so, holistically, it would appear that whole spices work synergistically for greater efficacy than just the ‘active ingredients’ working alone.

To help alleviate the pain in his knees, Neil became dependant on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and diclofenac.

Because of Neil’s lifelong interest in health, he decided he no longer wanted to take anymore NSAIDs, which have serious health side-effects and so, in 2012, he researched for natural remedies for joint support and formulated Spiceofen for himself, family and friends. In 2014, Neil trademarked the name "Spiceofen".
