Some pretty miraculous natural ingredients...
TURMERIC - yes, we mean the yellow spice Turmeric (Curcuma longa and Curcuma xanthorhizza). Turmeric has a long history of use in both Indian and Chinese traditional medicine. The inherent therapeutic properties are attributed to the vivid yellow-orange pigments (curcuminoids) that are present in turmeric. They are believed to have powerful antioxidant properties (significantly more so than vitamins E or C), and may increase the body’s ability to neutralise free radicals before they damage healthy cells and cell membranes. In combination with its perceived anti-inflammatory effects, turmeric has also been known for its role in the prevention or alleviation of an impressive array of conditions. Turmeric may also be useful in reducing inflammation particularly for animals with arthritis and itchy skin.
POWERSTANCE® - aka: powdered coconut oil Stance Equine’s powdered coconut oil supplement is a unique coconut delivery system that gives the benefits of this wonderful tropical oil and may also help to increase the absorption of turmeric in the digestive system. Coconut oil contains high levels of medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s) which provide the body with a readily available energy source and 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.
GROUND BLACK PEPPER The inclusion of ground black pepper to this mix may increase the bio-availabilty and absorption rate of Turmeric and Resveratrol.
RESVERATROL - say what? Resveratrol is a unique and exclusive element of Equitec’s Turmericle powder. This polyphenolic stilbenoid is a natural product found in Cocoa powder, red grape skins and Polygonum cuspidatum (Japanese knot weed), and is better known as the health promoting component of red wine. The inclusion of Resveratrol may help to boost the antioxidant properties and therefore may amplify the benefits of combining turmeric, coconut oil and ground black pepper.
