High quality turmeric extract containing 95% curcuminoids, with added piperine for increased absorption. This specially formulated Turmeric Tablets for dogs and cats is made using a pure and potent extract. Consisting of 95% curcuminoids – the active part of turmeric – they can help support your pet`s natural anti-inflammatory processes. This may be of particular benefit to pets with troublesome joints. Extracted from whole root and with added Bioperine? (black pepper extract) to help boost absorption, you can be sure that this supplement has maximised quality and bioavailability.
The therapeutic actions of turmeric have widely been attributed to compounds it contains called curcuminoids. There are three main curcuminoids but the most common and well known is curcumin, which makes up 80% of the total curcuminoids in turmeric. However, curcuminoids only account for 2-6% of the root?s content and the whole root provides activities superior to curcumin alone. By taking supplements created using the whole root you get a whole host of other benefits from all the other compounds that make up turmeric, as well as the curcuminoids.
Dorwest Turmeric tablets are easy to absorb – unfortunately, the bioavailability of curcumin has been found to be low. This is the proportion of curcumin that can be absorbed and enter the blood circulation following ingestion, which can then have active effects on the body. Luckily, Dorwest have a solution though – by adding in a compound found naturally in black pepper called piperine (Bioperine?) the bioavailability of curcumin is increased.
Standardised, traceable and sustainable – good quality turmeric and curcumin supplements for dogs and cats should contain a standardised amount of curcuminoids of 95%. Dorwest Turmeric Tablets were made with this in mind and contain 95% curcuminoids, with each tablet providing 175mg of whole root turmeric extract, equivalent to 7175mg dry whole root.
We know it might be tempting to use turmeric you see on the supermarket shelves but the turmeric we use for our dogs and cats must be of medicinal quality; culinary turmeric is produced for taste, not the quality of the curcuminoid compounds. Turmeric is thought amongst herbalists to be a very safe herb, but it is important to discuss its use with your vet before you give it to your pet, especially if they are taking any medication or about to undergo elective surgery. It is important to note that turmeric reportedly has anti-coagulant properties which could exacerbate clotting disorders.
