Benefits

Turmeric is an all-around beneficial herb! With its active compound curcumin, a compound found in turmeric. Its health properties vary from anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, treating gastrointestinal disorders, and the possibility of fighting cancer cells, aiding in joint pain, heart health, and liver repair.


Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric, but it is not that high, at around 3%. But mixing it with piperine, the main constituent in black pepper, increases the absorption by 2000%. In addition, Curcumin has such powerful anti-inflammatory properties that it is even being matched to anti-inflammatory drugs.


Curcumin is so effective as it blocks the NF-kB molecule. The NF-kB molecule travels to into the nuclei of your cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is said to play a crucial role in many chronic diseases. Basically, curcumin is a bioactive substance that fights inflammation on a molecular level. Curcumin also aids the body in increasing the body's own antioxidant levels.


There are dozens of ways to feed this powerful root. There are powders, treats, and pills. But the best way is golden paste. It's the cheapest and easiest way to make sure your dog gets all these benefits. The ingredients that make golden paste supercharge the turmeric, making it that much more powerful. If you do feed a supplement, ensure that the product says "BioPerine" (the trademarked name for piperine), which is the substance that enhances curcumin absorption by 2,000%. Without this, the supplement will pass through the system.
