This quality source of turmeric herb (Curcumin) from Dorwest is extracted from the whole root and contains 95% curcuminoids. Turmeric is extremely well documented and is widely used to support the body’s natural anti-inflammatory processes making it the natural joint support for dogs and cats. The turmeric extract in these tablets is traditionally grown in its native region of Southern India, using sustainable small farming methods, and it is renowned for its purity and full traceability.
The bio-availability of turmeric is naturally relatively low. However, this can easily be improved using two methods. The first is to give turmeric with fat. All balanced dog food contains fat; this is easily solved by ensuring Turmeric is provided with their meal. Secondly, absorption is easily improved by taking it with a natural compound in black pepper called piperine. One study has found that taking piperine and curcumin can increase bioavailability by an incredible 2000%!
A form of piperine, called Bioperine, is included in this formulation to ensure bio-availability is maximised. Turmeric has grown in popularity, and there are several ongoing studies into numerous other potential benefits of this exciting herb for joint support for dogs.
