Dorwest Turmeric Tablets
Why Dorwest Turmeric Tablets?
Easy to absorb
Unfortunately, the bioavailability of Curcumin has been found to be low. This is the proportion of Curcumin that can be absorbed and enter the blood circulation following ingestion, which can then have active effects on the body. Luckily, we have a solution though – by adding in a compound found naturally in Black Pepper called Piperine (Bioperine®), the bioavailability of Curcumin is increased. In fact, one study has found that taking Piperine along with curcumin can increase its bioavailability by 2,000%!
Standardised, traceable and sustainable
With the popularity of Turmeric soaring, there are unfortunately those wanting to make a ‘quick buck’ by selling low-quality produce. Turmeric has even been found to be mixed with other ingredients and artificially coloured. Good quality Turmeric and Curcumin supplements for dogs and cats will contain a standardised amount of Curcuminoids of 95%. Our Turmeric Tablets were made with this in mind and contain 95% Curcuminoids, with each tablet providing 175mg of whole root Turmeric extract, equivalent to 7175mg dry whole root.
Our Turmeric Tablets are fully traceable and vigorously tested from source to end product to ensure a pure and consistent high quality. We only use sustainable sources, opting for Turmeric grown using traditional small farming methods in Southern India, as our impact on the environment and local communities is very important to us here at Dorwest.
We know it might be tempting to use Turmeric you see on the supermarket shelves, but the Turmeric we use for our dogs and cats must be of medicinal quality; culinary Turmeric is produced for taste, not the quality of the Curcuminoid compounds.
Is Turmeric safe to give?
Turmeric is thought amongst herbalists to be a very safe herb, but it is important to discuss its use with your vet before you give it to your pet, especially if they are taking any medication or about to undergo elective surgery. It’s important to note that Turmeric reportedly has anti-coagulant properties which could exacerbate clotting disorders.
