Amazing Health Benefits of Turmeric for Your Dog
Curcumin, a natural substance in turmeric, has been proven to be:
✅ a natural detox
✅ anti-inflammatory, and
✅ an essential pain reliever for dogs!
And together with Black Pepper (Bioperine), it can boost the absorption of Curcumin by 2,000%!
How Does it Work?
It may sound like you can just sprinkle some grocery store-bought Turmeric on your dog’s food and call it a day.
However, the process if a little more complicated than that!
Here’s how it works:
- Turmeric gets its healing benefits from a compound called Curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in the spice, but the actual content of Curcumin in Turmeric is quite low.
- Therefore, just giving your dog turmeric isn’t going to do too much good- aside from the Curcumin content only being around 3% by weight, the absorption of Curcumin in the body is extremely low. But don’t fear!
Black Pepper is here!
Bioperine, which is an extract of Black Pepper is a completely natural substance that can boost the absorption of Curcumin by 2,000%!
Pet Faves adds Hemp Oil, which contains essential fatty acids. Since Curcumin is fat-soluble, this also boosts the extreme healing powers of the spice.
Okay, But Why Does My Dog Need That?
As a responsible pet owner, you’re the only one who can decide whether your dog could use the healing powers of Turmeric.
What we can tell you, though, is that the many benefits of the spice can help every dog in some way. Let’s take a look at just a few!
Inflammation is a bigger issue than you might think! Some call it the “silent killer” as it is the root of nearly all disease- arthritis, gum disease, allergies, and digestive issues are all caused by inflammation.
A 2004 study found that Curcumin actually outperformed Ibuprofen as an anti-inflammatory solution!
