Orlando, FL— July 31, 2015 — Herbs and spices have become some of the ingredients used by many people to improve their overall health. An ancient spice known as turmeric is considered to be one of the most popular natural alternatives today. The good news is that the spice is also used by dog owners to take care of their furry-family member’s well-being.
Experts provide guidelines on how to use turmeric for dogs. Dogs that suffer from memory issues or joint inflammation can reap the benefits of using turmeric. Dog lovers can add Indian saffron to the regular diet of their pet. Turmeric provides powerful nutrients both to humans and animals, such as dogs.
Turmeric is a spice that comes from the ginger family, and it is native to tropical South Asia. It is otherwise known as Curcuma longa and is gathered for its roots. Turmeric has an active ingredient called curcumin, and it contains therapeutic properties.
Some research indicates that turmeric has phytochemicals that are believed to help reduce the severity of lung injuries in mice. There were also studies that revealed the spice has anti-fungal properties. The spice has long been used in South Asian culture as antiseptic for scrapes, cuts and burns. There are also those who use it as a dietary supplement to relieve stomach problems.
A number of therapeutic benefits are associated with the use of turmeric in dogs. Due to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is believed to be helpful in dogs with arthritis. Dogs that are overweight are more prone to painful inflammation caused by arthritis. According to some experts, turmeric is one of the best remedies for such dog sufferers.
The curcumin in turmeric is also considered to be a blood thinner, and it makes the spice a great remedy in reducing the risk of blood clots. It is also believed to be helpful in getting rid of excess cholesterol from the body. Cholesterol does not normally affect dogs in the same way as it does people. However, clots can also result in various problems for dogs, such as heart attacks and strokes. Turmeric is believed to be an excellent remedy to prevent the problem.
“There are dogs that suffer from irritable bowel disease, and curcumin seems to be helpful for them,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.
Curcumin can help improve digestion and stimulate bile production in the liver of dogs. Experts suggest a dose of one quarter teaspoon per 10 pounds of the dog’s body weight (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
