Our Turmeric Root for dogs and cats is an herbal formula with many beneficial uses. The active constituent curcumin that is found in turmeric has shown promising results in numerous studies to have anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-tumor and immune supporting qualities that enhance weakened immune response while also modulating an over-active immune response as is encountered in autoimmune conditions.
Many outside of the pharmaceutical/medical industry believe that herbs in their whole food form are the best way to obtain the most benefits from an herb. This segment of the industry supports the use of turmeric root extract, that contains constituents from the whole herb, over curcumin extract, that is often obtained from outside of the US and can be of unknown quality. For this reason we extract all the constituents, including curcumin, from organic turmeric root using organic vegetable glycerin so it safe, nutritious and easy to provide to your pet.
Studies have also shown that curcumin is quickly neutralized by the liver and for this reason is not well utilized by the body. Research has shown that a substance called piperine extracted from black pepper produces an effect called bioenhancement that helps to increase the absorbtion of nutrients like curcumin. This addition makes the use of turmeric extracts much more efective for your dog or cat. You may have seen products that use BioPerine™ that is a trademarked extract to obtain their piperine. We instead use organic black peppercorns and feel this is the best and safest way to provide piperine to your dog or cat.
How much should I purchase?
We recommend getting enough for at least two to four weeks to start. With this remedy we are trying to provide the body with constituents that promote a more anti-inflammatory and/or allergy resistant state. If you are using this product for long term immune system support you may purchase the quantity you desire. When using an herbal remedy like this it is far different than using a prescription medication and may take longer, but, when possible, will get real results not just the suppression of symptoms.
A two ounce bottle contains 60 ml. We recommend providing this herbal remedy at least three times per day at first until desired results are seen. This means a 25 pound dog will receive 3 ml daily, so a two ounce bottle will last for twenty days. In this case we recommend you purchase at least one to two bottles so you have a sufficient time period to see how this remedy works for your animal. If you then decide to continue using our Turmeric Root for your dog or cat try to place your reorder so there is no interruption in your animal's treatment.
What to Look for in a Superior Turmeric Formula:
✓ Organic Herbs
Our formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or how they've been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.
✓ Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medicine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not really meant to.
✓ Alcohol-Free Tincture with ORGANIC Vegetable Glycerin for Animals
Our blend is formulated by a special process using low heat and organic vegetable glycerin. Tinctures are concentrated forms of a plant's constituents that are readily absorbed and utilized by your pet's body. Because your pet may not like the taste of alcohol, we use vegetable glycerin which gives our tinctures a sweet taste your animals will like. Vegetable glycerin is a carbohydrate but is metabolized differently than sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels. It is also an efficient menstruum which extracts valuable constituents from plants and makes them readily available to the body. In addition, we take the extra time and effort to use a low heat process that extracts many more constituents than just soaking in glycerin alone as is done by most other herbal companies. And, of course, the use of organic vegetable glycerin ensures your pet avoids genetically modified ingredients and herbicides in their natural medicine.
✓ Uses only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.
A proprietary formula containing the following organic herbs in a 1:5 ratio of herb to menstruum:

About the Organic Herbs in this Formula
Turmeric Root - This herb is getting a lot of attention and for good reason. Substantial research has shown promising benefits of the yellow pigment curcumin found in turmeric that displays anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-tumor and immune modulating benefits for your dog or cat.
Black Peppercorns - When ground this herb is known to most of us as black pepper. We don't normally pay it much attention other than a spice. But studies are now showing that this fruit has properties that enhance the absorption of many nutrients, like curcumin, so they can be better utilized by the body.
