Joint health for our canine companions
With joint disease being one of the most commonly diagnosed conditions in our four legged companions it’s understandable why many dog owners take their pets joint health seriously! While physical exercise heavily impacts the health of our dogs’ joints, the overall function of our pets joints can also be influenced by what goes into their dinner bowl. There are many supplements available to help promote a happy and healthy joint, but with so many available it can be hard to know where to turn and what to choose to help our beloved pets, whether we’re looking to promote healthy joints in younger dogs, or ease discomfort in older dogs.
Within this blog we’ll look at a selection of Pets Purest products designed to support and mange joint mobility throughout all stages of your pets life and explain the benefits of the 100% natural ingredients used.
100% Natural Premium Turmeric Curcumin Capsules
Ingredients: Organic Turmeric Root Powder (Curcuma Longa) 500mg extract 20:1 Equivalent to 10,000mg, Bioperine 5mg
Turmeric has been dubbed by many as a 'Wonder Spice' and not just for it’s unique taste, many studies have documented the health benefits of this common spice! In particular the spice is renowned for it’s anti-inflammatory properties which can be invaluable when looking at joint health in our pets. The Pets Purest 100% Natural Premium Turmeric Curcumin capsules are packed full Curcumin, the primary bioactive substance found in turmeric.
But before you go reaching for your spice rack its important to be aware that on it’s own, Curcumin is poorly absorbed, rapidly metabolised and quickly expelled from the body, meaning the full benefits of this impressive ingredient cannot be appreciated, that is why the Pets Purest capsules are paired with piperine. Piperine is the major active component of black pepper and when combined with curcumin has been shown to increase absorption rates of curcumin by up to 2000%!
It is important to remember with supplements, not all products are created equal, due to lack of regulation over the pet supplement market, things aren’t always as they seem. Pets Purest use only the strongest and most effective formula, the Pets Purest 500mg capsules are equivalent to 10,000mg of other weaker products.
