The main active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which has been identified as a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant in humans and is reputed to be beneficial in horses. It can be used to maintain healthy joints, promote good digestion and support a healthy skin & coat.
Black pepper has been included to aid the absorption of the active ingredients into the body. It may also be beneficial to feed turmeric in conjunction with a high quality oil, such as Linseed Oil.
