We have recently introduced to the Dogista family a proven and effective Turmeric tincture for dogs – TurmerTinc!
Introduction To Turmeric
Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) is considered one of nature’s most effective anti-inflammatory substances. This perennial plant is a highly potent remedy native to Southeast Asia and is used for many conditions: from preventing and treating the common cold, to helping the body eradicate potentially deadly infectious diseases.
Whilst turmeric is not a standalone do-it-all magic herb, it does enable the body to be more efficient, and to flush out toxins and negative bacteria from your system. It also helps to reign in free radicals which are roaming in the bloodstream.
Turmeric For Dogs.
The orange spice has been proven to be a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, and this also holds true to dogs.
When it comes to relieving pain caused by joint-related illnesses like arthritis, for instance, turmeric can be highly beneficial. This doesn’t mean it eliminates the illness, in fact, in the case of joint pains, all you can do is treat the symptoms, prevent further damage, and make the environment as comfortable as possible for your fur baby.
Turmeric for dogs is a game changer in holistic pet medicine.
This herb is a natural anti-inflammatory agent, anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant.
Because it is a naturally occurring ingredient, it can be provided as a preventive medication, rather than just a reactive one.
Chronic inflammation is behind almost all diseases in both human and animals alike. Turmeric has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect that rivals current pharmaceutical grade medicine.
Turmeric and curcumin are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants are miracle workers as they slow down the ageing and degeneration process. How do they do this? By fighting free radicals. Free radicals naturally occur in the body but they are also formed when your dog is exposed to chemicals, pesticides, processed dog food, pollution, radiation and toxins. A regular supplement of Turmeric provides a powerhouse of preventative goodness to dogs of all ages.
Relieve Arthritis Pain
In addition to treating the inflammation that causes arthritis, turmeric for dogs can also treat that pain and symptoms associated with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
Treat Gastrointestinal Disorders
Turmeric can protect a dog’s intestinal cells from inflammatory damage and is especially effective for dog breeds that are known to suffer with sensitive digestive systems.
Another important health benefit of Turmeric for dogs is it supports good heart health. In fact, it is a wonderful supplement for those with congestive heart failure. As you may know, there are two types of cholesterol: LDL (the bad kind) and HDL (the good kind). Studies show that turmeric for dogs can lower LDL and thin the blood, reducing the likelihood of your pet suffering a blood clot.
Supports Dog Liver Function
The liver is a key player when it comes to your dog’s health. It works full-time, regulating blood, removing hazardous toxins, processing nutrients, and producing bile which aids in the breakdown of fat.
Essentially, Turmeric for dogs supports the liver function and helps it breakdown fat and remove waste.
Studies show that Turmeric is just as effective as steroids, a popular remedy for dogs who struggle with allergies and joint pain. An additional study showed that taking both Turmeric and a steroid simultaneously, Turmeric will decrease the usual side effects associated with the steroid.
It should be noted that Turmeric isn’t easily absorbed by dogs. If this herb isn’t mixed with an absorbent base, there is a good chance it will just pass through your dog’s digestive system without being absorbed.
For this reason, a very good and effective Turmeric supplement will usually have black pepper added to it. In addition to being antibacterial and having antioxidant potential, black pepper is also a digestive aid that has shown to prevent the liver from excreting curcumin so quickly.
Turmeric does leave the body quickly so it’s best to administer smaller amounts daily as advised.
Formulated by scientists and herbalists, TurmerTinc! is now available to order.
