- The gold standard in joint supplements.
Eden Natural Health is pleased to announce the release of Turmericin, a joint and health supplement for horses and dogs.
Turmericin combines the active ingredients Turmeric and New Zealand green lipped mussel powder. These 2 ingredients work synergistically to create a product that has significant health benefits especially for joint health.
New Zealand green lipped mussel powder contains high levels of phospholipid which act on the lipox 5 inflammatory pathway. By blocking an enzyme in the pathway, the green lipped mussel powder has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Similarly the curcumin in Turmeric blocks inflammatory pathways, including the COX 2 pathway. By blocking the inflammatory pathway in the body there is an anti-inflammatory effect.
By combining Turmeric and New Zealand green lipped mussel powder together there is a blocking of COX 2 and lipox 5 pathways, giving a stronger anti-inflammatory effect in the body than using just one of the products.
Turmericin may have a multitude of health effects within the body. Turmericin is predominantly used to help improve joint health, but may also improve many other functions in the body do to its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant nature. Turmericin may help in the treatment of allergic skin conditions, Queensland itch, sarcoids, cancers, allergic/irritable bowel conditions, laminitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), stomach ulcers, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
Turmericin contains coconut as an aid to delivery of the Turmeric to the body. Turmeric is very hydrophobic, which means it doesn’t like water; it likes oil to dissolve and is best absorbed into the body in an oily environment. Coconut is over 60% oil, so it assists in absorption of Turmeric in the intestines. Turmericin also contains black pepper which may assist in the absorption and metabolism of Turmeric in the body.
Turmeric and New Zealand green lipped mussel combine well because green lipped mussels are also high in oil. The oil in green lipped mussel powder is what gives its pharmacological properties. Eden Natural Health only sources the finest high grade, high fat green lipped mussel powder. Likewise only high quality Turmeric powder is used in manufacturing Turmericin.
Eden Natural Health uses only human grade ingredients in the manufacture of Turmericin.
Turmericin is made in Australia using local and imported ingredients, to full Australian standards.
