Is turmeric good for horses?

Yes, turmeric provides several positive benefits for horses. Curcumin, as one of over 200 compounds within Turmeric, is the main active ingredient in Turmeric. It is a strong antioxidant, and has a metabolic effect in the natural inflammation cycle of the body’s defence mechanisms.

 

Why are the compounds in Turmeric important?

Turmeric contains components that can have roles in various metabolic systems. As well as containing antioxidants, Turmeric supports processes involved in the inflammation cycle. Inflammation is a natural response to stress factors which normally decreases after time, and is part of the body’s natural defence and structural mechanisms.

 

Why is TurmerAid™ good for my horse? 

TurmerAid™ is the complete turmeric supplement for horses and ponies. It is a very palatable and convenient way to feed Turmeric to your horse.  It is mess-free and requires no mixing with other ingredients, because it has been uniquely formulated, containing all the necessary ingredients to optimise the bioavailability of the key functional ingredients. 

 

What are the main ingredients in TurmerAid™?

As well as Turmeric, our TurmerAid™ contains Linseed Oil to help maintain a healthy and shiny coat, freshly cracked Black Pepper to aid bioavailability, Yucca to aid digestion and Apple Cider Vinegar to increase palatability.

 

Will fussy eaters eat this pellet?

Most horses love TurmerAid™ even fed by hand as a treat.  If you are unsure about whether your horse will enjoy this product, call our helpline on 01423 503319 and order a sample pot for free.

 

How can you confirm the % of Curcumin in your pellets?

As manufacturers of quality feeds, we are members of the Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS). As such we can only source guaranteed products and blend them to declared nutrient levels. We analyse according to written procedures that are independently audited, so we can confirm the levels in every batch.

 

Does TurmerAid™ help with biting insects?

Mosquito bites can result in an allergenic response, involving local defence mechanisms. As with many stress situations this involves the natural inflammation process, macrophage activity and system integrity. Components in TurmerAid help support such mechanisms. However, we recommend also feeding TurmerItch alongside TurmerAid to specifically target issues such as biting insects and other skin complaints.  

TurmerAid is priced at £19.99 for a 2kg tub, click here to find out more and purchase.
