What are the benefits of Golden Paste?
The main component of turmeric is curcumin, a substance that has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Curcumin is a bio-active substance that fights inflammation at the molecular level. This makes turmeric ideal for senior pets, dogs with arthritis and poor joint health, and any condition with inflammation as a symptom. The anti-inflammatory properties in turmeric are so powerful that it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs (except without the bad side effects). Turmeric is also a strong antioxidant, helping to neutralize free radicals in the body while stimulating the body’s own antioxidant enzymes.
