Turmeric Vs. Curcumin For Pets - Are They The Same?


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. Adding a little turmeric spice powder to a pet's diet will not have the same effect as using the curcumin supplement. A half teaspoon of turmeric (a lot to give 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 contains 400 mg. Powder from the Ask Ariel capsule can be sprinkled on food or mixed with broth and given in a syringe. Please click here to learn more.
