What is turmeric?
Turmeric is known as the “Golden Spice” and is such a valuable addition to our natural solutions for animals!
The turmeric plant is a member of the ginger family and is best known for promoting a healthy inflammatory response. Research has shown this incredible plant to have so many other properties that make it helpful in supporting many different body systems: immune system support, soothing muscles & joints, and supporting the digestive system…to name a few.
The herb contains curcuminoids that help the body fight free radicals and protects cells from oxidative damage. The Essential Oil has molecules (Turmerone and ar-Turmerone) that help the body’s absorption of curcuminoids. Using the essential oil together with the herbal supplement is an incredible way to improve the bioavailability of both!
