from Thorne Research - Anti-inflammatory and Antioxidant Support for Dogs and CatsCurcuVet-SA50
is a curcumin supplement for small dogs and cats. For large dogs (+75 lbs) see CurcuVet-SA150
Curcumin, the orange pigment in turmeric, is a powerful antioxidant that also has anti-inflammatory benefits to reduce inflammation throughout the body. There are hundreds of curcumin supplements available, so what makes CurcuVet different? Its bioavailability!
Curcumin, like many other plant extracts, is poorly absorbed in the bloodstream. CurcuVET is unique in that its curcumin is bound to a phospholipid, an essential component of cell membranes. By attaching a curcumin molecule to a phospholipid, the curcumin can pass through the cell membrane for superior absorption. Better absorption means better efficacy!
Studies have shown curcumin not only helps reduce pain and inflammation, it also protects the gastrointestinal tract, liver and kidneys from damage. Curcumin is also beneficial to the liver in that it enhances the animal's natural antioxidant system by increasing the level of glutathione, thereby aiding in liver detoxification. Animal studies have shown that curcumin can be beneficial for slowing the growth and spread of cancer cells.
Why Worry About Inflammation?
- Inflammation of the joints can cause arthritis.
- Inflammation of the intestinal tract (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) leads to vomiting, diarrhea and weight loss.
- Inflammation of the sinus cavity can lead to sinus congestion resulting in infections.
- Inflammation and oxidation play a significant role in causing heart disease.
CurcuVet works to reduce inflammation throughout the body. CurcuVet can be used as a primary treatment for arthritis, liver disease, respiratory issues, gastrointestinal problems, and can also be used as a complementary treatment when NSAIDS, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs and other medications are being used.
Each bottle of Curcuvet-SA50 contains 90 chews.
