Turmeric is a spice that has been used, over the years, in Eastern cultures, as a natural medicine; it was particularly used for gastric upsets and, if inhaled as a vapour, for general health and wellbeing.
Over the past few years it has become increasingly popular for the support of joint health in people and is increasingly the subject of research into the characteristics of its bioactive components. Recognising the interest in turmeric as a potential product that would support an animal’s physiology in the course of the normal wear and tear of life, The Golden Paste Company began to look at the spice and its properties as a functional supplement for dogs (and cats).
TURMERIC – our turmeric is not irradiated or steam treated to preserve the key components. Our curcumin levels are 5.1% minimum.
COCONUT OIL – we use cold pressed and organic coconut oil
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR – complete with ‘the mother’ apple cider vinegar includes compounds such as quercetin.
BLACK PEPPER – we crack our black pepper just before adding it to our paste
CEYLON CINNAMON – we use true (ceylon) cinnamon as this has a lower level of coumarin in.
