    What is turmeric?

    Turmeric is a herb from Southern India and is in the same family of herbs as ginger. The rhizome is the part of the plant that is eaten - this is the underground, horizontal stem, commonly termed the root.


    The therapeutic actions of turmeric have widely been attributed to compounds it contains called curcuminoids. There are three main curcuminoids but the most common and well known is curcumin, which makes up 80% of the total curcuminoids in turmeric. However, curcuminoids only account for 2-6% of the root’s content and the whole root provides activities superior to curcumin alone. By taking supplements created using the whole root you get a whole host of other benefits from all the other compounds that make up turmeric, as well as the curcuminoids.


    What are the benefits of using turmeric?

    Turmeric is well known for its naturally supportive properties in anti-inflammatory processes. 


    Dorwest turmeric tablets are fully traceable and vigorously tested from source to end product to ensure a pure and consistent high quality. They only use sustainable sources, opting for turmeric grown using traditional small farming methods in Southern India.


    Is turmeric safe to give?

    Turmeric is thought amongst herbalists to be a very safe herb but it is important to discuss its use with your vet before you give it to your pet, especially if they are taking any medication or about to undergo elective surgery. It’s important to note that turmeric reportedly has anti-coagulant properties which could exacerbate clotting disorders.
