CurcuVet-SA150 by Thorne Research - for large dogs over 75 lbs.
CurcuVET from Thorne Research - Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant support.
For centuries people throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry) and is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits including for joint health, hepatic support, gastrointestinal health, and cardiovascular function – by helping to maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response.
Why Worry About Inflammation?
- Inflammation of the joints can cause arthritis.
- Inflammation of the intestinal tract, or Inflammatory Bowel Disease, leads to vomiting, diarrhea and weight loss.
- Many common anti-inflammatory drugs can cause serious damage to the GI tract, kidneys and liver.
Studies have shown curcumin not only helps reduce pain and inflammation, it also protects the GI tract, liver and kidneys from damage. CurcuVet
can be used as a primary treatment for arthritis, liver disease, IBD, and can also be used as a complementary treatment to these diseases when NSAIDS, antibiotics, chemotherpahy drugs and other medications are being used.
CurcuVET is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. The curcumin in CurcuVet is bound to a phosphatidylcholine (PC), an essential component of cell membranes. By attaching a curcumin molecule to a PC molecule, the PC ushers the curcumin across the cell membrane for superior absorption. Better absorption means better efficacy!
