What is Turmericle?
Turmericle is a unique powdered blend of well researched nutraceutical herbs including two varieties of turmeric, black pepper and resveratrol, which may assist with conditions such as joint discomfort and skin conditions. Combined with our own powdered coconut oil, this easy to administer powder is suitable for horses and dogs.
About the Ingredients
Turmericle contains a blend of two different species of turmeric – Curcuma longa and Curcuma xanthorrhiza, also known as Java Ginger.
Power Stance® powdered coconut oil. Power Stance is powdered coconut oil designed to make administering oil easy. Coconut oil contains high levels of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) which provide the body with a readily available source of lauric acid, which converts to monolaurin.
Ground Black Pepper Curcumin is treated as a foreign substance by the liver. It is therefore rapidly metabolized and excreted. Piperine in black pepper blocks curcumin excretion by the liver and increases curcumin bioavailability. Piperine activity is reduced in sunlight. Turmericle must be stored in a sealed container to maintain the efficacy of the black pepper.
Resveratrol is produced in plants to maintain their general health. Normal body functioning gives rise to free radicals with production greatly increased during inflammation and stress. Resveratrol has been added to Turmericle as it is an antioxidant. The resveratrol is derived from Japanese Knotweed.
