Nature’s Herb with Powerful Healing Benefits
Turmeric, an herb related to ginger, is grown throughout India, parts of Asia and Central America. Historically, turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for many health conditions. Even more interesting, recent and extensive studies have shown “the golden spice” also offers huge health benefits for our dogs and possibly even for their lifespan!
Curcumin (the medicinal component in turmeric) offers not only antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal benefits, but it’s also effective in healing wounds.
What does this mean for your dog?
Antioxidants are known to not only slow down aging and degeneration, but may also help increase your dog’s lifespan! Something we all want for our beloved canines. Chronic low-grade inflammation can cause a lot of degenerative joint issues in your dog, a very common problem. Turmeric can help slow down inflammation and most importantly, help reduce pain levels.
In addition, studies about turmeric and its active ingredient curcumin, have revealed it can also help fight diseases like cancer, arthritis, liver disease, gastrointestinal disease and much more. Also, many dogs (like mine) don't do well on steroids, which can also have strong and detrimental side effects. Turmeric can be as effective as many prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs with little to no side effects.
Why Our Products Are Different
What you may not know is turmeric, on its own, is hard to absorb. Peperine, a phytochemical found in black pepper and some fats can make turmeric more absorbable in the body.
But, not every dog can tolerate black pepper or many fats. In addition, pills and capsules tend to go in one end and out the other without breaking down; reducing or eliminating any potential benefits. (Not to mention, the difficulty in feeding pills or capsules to your dog; my dog always manages to eat every other morsel in his dog bowl, except the pill!)
So, my holistic therapist, a chemist, and myself came up with a recipe that is easily absorbed without the need for any black pepper or fats. Our unique formula is an organic liquid which can be easily and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. This special formula uses ultrasonic technology to make what we call “golden goodness.” That’s when Golden Wellness Dogs was born!
We love it, our dogs love it, and you will love it too!
