(Newswire.net — November 11, 2016) Las Vegas, NV — Turmeric is believed to offer a range of health benefits. It is even consumed by many people from around the world today who are striving to increase their protection against a range of conditions. This ancient spice may also be potentially beneficial for pets.

Turmeric may offer health-promoting effects on animals. Animals have certain nutritional needs that should be satisfied to help them survive and live a good quality of life. Many animals, such as the domesticated ones, are typically unable to fend for themselves therefore it is essential that pet owners are able to identify what their furry family member’s nutritional needs are and help to meet them.

According to the National Center for Complimentary & Alternative Medicine, turmeric belongs to the ginger family. It is an herbaceous plant that has been used as an ingredient in many Indian curries and sauces.

In traditional Chinese and Ayurveda medicine, turmeric has been utilized for thousands of years to help fight a range of diseases and disorders. Turmeric powder has been incorporated in many delectable dishes and beverages.

Turmeric powder is also used as a tea or paste. Many of its potential benefits are thought to come from its polyphenol called curcumin. This phytochemical is believed to contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, and anti-carcinogenic properties.

There are dogs, cats, and other animals that suffer from pain of inflammation. While these furry family members may be unable to express their pain, their behavior makes it possible for owners to see their discomfort and struggles.

Turmeric may be used as a potential anti-inflammatory and potential pain reliever for animals that suffer from pain-causing conditions. This spice’s possible antibacterial and antiseptic properties are thought to help disinfect and aid in skin injuries.

To make a paste, turmeric may be combined with honey and topically applied on the affected skin areas. It may also be administered orally.  According to Earth Clinic, the dose for turmeric is one teaspoon for every 10 pounds of the pet’s weight, given on a daily basis. It is suggested that this ancient spice is thought to be generally safe for cats and dogs.  Pet owners may add turmeric in pet foods. They may also combine black pepper with turmeric to potentially increase absorption.

Today, there are curcumin supplements widely available in the market. These supplements are thought to contain high amounts of curcumin which means they may potentially provide more benefits.

Curcumin supplements with piperine are highly in demand nowadays. Piperine is a black pepper extract that is believed to be effective in increasing the delivery of curcumin inside the body.
