Dorwest Turmeric Tablets for Dogs and Cats
The natural bioavailability of turmeric is unfortunately quite low, however can easily be improved using two methods. The first is to give turmeric with a fatty substance, and as all balanced dog food contains fat this is easily solved by ensuring it is given with their meal. Secondly, absorption is easily improved by taking it with a compound found naturally in black pepper called piperine.
One study has found that taking piperine along with curcumin can increase bioavailability by an incredible 2000%.
A patented form of piperine called Bioperine is included in this formulation to ensure bioavailability is maximised. Turmeric has grown in popularity and there are a number of ongoing studies into numerous other potential benefits of this exciting herb.
