Turmeric For Pets Vs. Curcumin For Pets - What's The Difference?

Are turmeric and curcumin the same? Not really. Curcumin is the prized compound found in turmeric. Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation and improves mobility. According to the National Cancer Institute, it is important to consider that certain materials (such as turmeric, turmeric extracts, curcuminoid-enriched materials) often referred to as curcumin, are not identical to the pure, single-chemical entity. Adding a little turmeric spice powder to a pet's diet will not have the same effect as using a curcumin supplement. A half teaspoon of turmeric (a lot to give to a pet due to the strong smell and flavor) contains about 15 mg of curcumin vs one capsule of Ask Ariel's Curcumin Complex for Pets that contains 400 mg.

How Curcumin Can Help Your Dog Or Cat:

  • Curcumin Helps Relieves Arthritis Pain & Improves Mobility
Curcumin is the best natural anti-inflammatory for dogs and cats. Curcumin helps pets that are slowing down, having difficulty getting up or showing signs of stiffness or joint pain. It helps to improve mobility, reduce swelling and provides pain relief for pets. Researchers recently published a study* that compared the effectiveness of curcumin versus ibuprofen when used to treat arthritis pain. Curcumin performed just as well as the ibuprofen.

Curcumin works well as a complementary therapy for cats and dogs that have been prescribed NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as meloxicam or Rimadyl. Long-term use of NSAIDs can pose a potential risk of liver or kidney damage. By using a turmeric supplement for dogs along with NSAIDs, you may be able to reduce the amount of medication your pet needs. The results from a recent study published in Veterinary Immunology and Immunopathology** show that curcumin provides anti-inflammatory support for arthritis treatment in dogs. Curcumin for Pets is helpful for dogs with hip and elbow dysplasia, torn ACL ligaments and other injuries.

  • Curcumin Targets Cancer Cells
According to doctors at the Mayo Clinic, a leading medical research institute, scientific research suggests that curcumin may prevent cancer, slow the spread of cancer, increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy and protect healthy cells during radiation therapy.* Curcumin is one of the most extensively researched natural supplements for cancer.

Research** shows that curcumin, the primary polyphenol compound in turmeric, targets cancer stem cells while not harming normal stem cells. Stem cells divide and renew, helping to repair and replace damaged cells in the body. Stem cells are constantly dividing. Cancer stem cells fuel tumor growth. Since Curcumin selectively targets and destroys cancer stem cells, it is an excellent complement to cancer treatments prescribed by your vet or veterinary oncologist.

  • Curcumin Helps Reduce Inflammation
Inflammation can affect a pet's health in many ways. Digestive diseases, like IBD or acid reflux, can result from chronic intestinal and GI inflammation that gets worse over time. Food and environmental allergies cause inflammation to the skin, mucous membranes and respiratory system. Other conditions such as kidney disease and all types of cancer show a remarkable amount of inflammation. Several trials and research studies have demonstrated the efficacy of curcumin as an anti-inflammatory agent. One study* found curcumin to be effective when treating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and colitis. Another clinical review** shows a possible therapeutic effect of curcumin on respiratory, allergic, and immunologic disorders due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Provides Powerful Antioxidant Protection
Curcumin is a potent antioxidant* that can help to limit free radical damage and boost your pet's immune system. Antioxidants scavenge for free radicals and reduce cell damage caused by oxidation. This can slow down aging, degeneration and lessen inflammation in your pet's body.

What Makes Curcumin For Pets the Best Turmeric Supplement For Dogs and Cats?

  • Complex of All Three Curcuminoids for Maximum Effectiveness
Curcumin Complex for Pets is a patented, unique composition of three bioactive, health-promoting curcuminoids for dogs and cats: curcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin and demethoxycurcumin. These are the strongest, most protective and best-researched constituents of the herb turmeric. Multiple studies show that this scientifically extracted combination not only scavenges and neutralizes harmful existing free radicals, but it also prevents their formation in the first place. These antioxidants are proven to protect and strengthen vulnerable organs such as the liver and heart. In addition, these curcuminoids for dogs and cats are powerful natural tools to better control and diminish inflammation.

  • Veterinarian-Recommended Natural Anti-Inflammatory for Dogs & Cats
Curcumin (turmeric) shows excellent safety in clinical studies. Curcumin has been demonstrated to be safe in many human trials and has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity. Excessive inflammation is a common risk factor for disease occurrence and progression. Inflammation may lead to lack of mobility, pain, achiness, joint stiffness, cancer, brain degenerative conditions and other pet health issues. Curcumin/turmeric for cats or dogs has been helpful in reducing inflammation, whether acute or chronic, caused by physical injury, joint wear and tear (as in osteoarthritis) and inflammatory conditions such as hip or elbow dysplasia.

  • Most Bioavailable Form for Optimal Absorption
Curcumin for Pets is especially bioavailable (pets can get the most benefit) because sunflower lecithin acts as an emulsifier to improve absorption. This is why Curcumin for Pets is more beneficial for pets than just sprinkling turmeric spice on your pet's food. Since our curcumin is so highly bioavailable, your dog or cat needs only a small amount. Our cost-effective capsules are a 3-4 month supply for small pets. Combining curcumin with omega 3 fatty acids, such as Amazing Omegas, can also help to increase absorption.

Product FAQs
Curcumin Complex for Pets Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is a natural anti-inflammatory for dogs and cats?

Curcuma longa (turmeric) contains over two dozen anti-inflammatory compounds that reduce inflammation and relieve the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. In human research studies, turmeric supplements that contain at least 20% curcuminoids are just as effective as ibuprofen. Look for a natural anti-inflammatory supplement that contains concentrated and bioavailable curcuminoids for maximum absorption and effectiveness.

What is golden paste for dogs and cats?

Golden paste is commonly used for dogs and cats to help alleviate pain and inflammation. Golden paste is made from turmeric and coconut oil. The amount of active curcuminoids in turmeric spice is quite low, offering only a minimal benefit. Curcumin supplements for pets can offer a much higher concentration of anti-inflammatory compounds.

Are turmeric and curcumin the same?

Curcumin is the prized compound found in the turmeric root. It has amazing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Turmeric, turmeric extracts and curcuminoid-enriched materials all have different levels of pure curcumin. Adding a teaspoon of turmeric to your dog or cat’s food will not have the same effect as using a potent pet-friendly supplement.

What is the best way to give curcumin to my dog or cat?

Curcumin is not well absorbed by the digestive tract so administering it with a meal can improve absorption. Curcumin is fat soluble, so it absorbs better if your pet ingests it along with fats such as coconut oil or Omega 3 fatty acids. Also, when choosing a curcumin supplement for your dog or cat, look for one that contains an emulsifier such as sunflower lecithin to improve absorption. This increases the effectiveness for your pet and provides you with the maximum value for your purchase.
