Turmeric is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and stimulates and strengthens the immune system. Its benefits are widely known, and it has been used in treating various health issues for centuries.
Turmeric is a spice commonly used in curries having a sharp taste and peppery aroma.
Research and my experience using Turmeric shows that this spice can safely be given to animals and may be helpful in preventing many diseases and relieving painful conditions in the animal.
Benefits of feeding Turmeric -
How to feed -
I have found that if you add Turmeric to feed in small amounts animals become used to the taste. Build up over a couple of weeks to 1 tablespoon twice daily as a maintenance dose. I have had no problems giving around 2 tablespoons twice daily for horses that have problems.
Add six grinds of black pepper (must be fresh, not in powder form) to each feed. This makes the Turmeric more easily absorbed. I like to use an oil high in Omega 3 such as Cold Pressed Olive, Linseed or Coconut Oil. If you are using a pre-mixed feed that contains a lot of oil, then reduce the amount you give with Turmeric, say to a tablespoon each feed.
I believe it is more effective to feed small amounts of Turmeric mixture during the day rather than a large amount of Turmeric in one feed a day.
