Turmeric Xtra Equine America, containing the active compound curcumin, is thought to provide support for joints and mobility, as well as digestion and immune function.
Full-Fat linseed meal contains high levels of oil to help the absorption of the curcumin, as well as providing important omega 3 fatty acids.
Black pepper contains the active compound piperine, and as well as enhancing the absorption of curcumin and other nutrients, may help support immune function.
Turmeric Xtra – the natural, easy way to help support general health and mobility in all horses and ponies.
Turmeric Xtra is probably best known for its use as an anti-inflammatory. It works by significantly reducing the inflammatory pathways in the body, but unlike bute and most other non-steroidal anti-inflammatories often given to horses, turmeric works as a COX-2 inhibitor (as opposed to COX-1) and does not damage the lining of the stomach.
- Liver Detoxifier
Another common use for turmeric is for detoxifying the liver. Curcumin has long been connected to liver health. Numerous studies have linked it to effectively combating liver cancer and improving liver fibroids. What’s more, turmeric can uniquely assist the enzymes that are responsible for flushing out known dietary carcinogens. The result is enhanced protection against liver damage.
Not only is curcumin a potent antioxidant itself, but it has also been shown to boost the body’s own antioxidant mechanisms, making it doubly helpful in this regard.
Ingredients for successful results-Turmeric Xtra Equine America!
In Equine America Turmeric is used a high-quality Turmeric powder, which is blended with a Linseed meal, Calcium, and Vitamin E. The key to feeding Turmeric is the absorption of its active nutrients including Curcumin.
Turmeric Xtra is not water-soluble, which can limit its absorption, it is oil-soluble, so it needs to be taken with healthy oil, or it is nearly useless. The healthiest of these is Linseed oil, this is because of its high omega 3 content and its excellent omega 3-6 ratio, therefore also boosting the anti-inflammatory capacity. It is also thought its bioavailability is increased with the addition of fresh ground black pepper. This compound becomes ineffective very quickly, so must be fresh ground at the time of feeding to get the maximum benefit, not included in a product!
Linseed meal has more benefits than oil for the absorption of Turmeric. The second unique feature of Linseed is its high lignin content. Lignans are fiber-like compounds, but in addition to their fiber-like benefits, they also provide antioxidant protection due to their structure as polyphenols.
Calcium is added because both Turmeric and Linseed meal have unbalanced calcium to phosphorus ratio, so by adding Calcium we have re-addressed the imbalance.
Vitamin E is an oil-soluble vitamin, which is also a strong antioxidant. This also helps aid the digestion of the high oil content of the product. Vitamin E was also included in a clinical trial on the use of curcumin’s therapeutic action on equine osteoarthritis.
