A property blend of Turmeric (Curcuma longa & Curcuma xanthorrhiza),
Lauric acid (coconut oil), Resveratrol (Japanese Knotweed), Black Pepper
Turmeric: Turmericle contains a blend of two different species of turmeric to optimize the benefits they both offer. One form, Curcuma longa, is the traditional type of turmeric commonly used in cooking, foodstuffs, cosmetics and medicine. Curcuma xanthorrhiza, has been used as a traditional medicinal plant in some tropical countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia. It contains the xanthorrhiza oil which confers unusual benefits.
PowerStance®: is powdered coconut oil designed to make feeding oil easy. Coconut oil contains high levels of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) which provide the body with a readily available source of lauric acid, which converts to monolaurin and may provide anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. The benefits of supplementing animals with coconut oil may include improved digestive health, enhanced coat and skin condition.
Coconut oil is absorbed directly into the portal blood, and therefore is metabolized faster than other oils.
Ground Black Pepper: Curcumin is treated as a foreign substance by the liver. It is therefore rapidly metabolized and excreted. Piperine in black pepper blocks curcumin excretion by the liver and increases curcumin bioavailability. Piperine activity is reduced in sunlight. Turmericle must be stored in a sealed container.
Resveratrol: Resveratrol is produced in plants to maintain their general health. Normal body functioning gives rise to free radicals with production greatly increased during inflammation and stress. Resveratrol has been added to Turmericle as it is an antioxidant that may help the body efficiently detoxify these free radicals and shows signs of being cardio-protective, anti-cancerous and anti-inflammatory. The resveratrol is derived from Japanese knotweed.
