What is Turmeric?

Turmeric is a yellow, ancient spice that comes from the Curcuma longa plant (belonging to the ginger family). It is found in southeast Asia and has been used for millennia. 

What makes Turmeric so powerful is the active compound called curcumin. It has naturally occurring anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. 

Turmeric is an immune booster with antioxidants that make it the perfect superfood for our pets. Studies have shown that Turmeric has benefits that extend to shrinking cancer cells. 

The benefits of Turmeric for your pet

Much like humans, as pets age their immune system and body parts slow down. They are less likely to fight off diseases that can damage their cells. Also, tissue repair slows and may result in mobility issues. The benefits of turmeric for dogs and cats are wide ranging. But, the most common problem is hip and joint issues. This is due to them not producing enough free radicals to protect their joints.
