Curcumin is an antioxidant-rich compound found in Turmeric.

What does it do?

Curcumin operates as an antioxidant, defending against cellular damage and blocking the enzymes that cause inflammation in the body.

Why we chose it

Curcumin is rich in micronutrients whose protective benefits have been used in traditional medicine for centuries, while also being rigorously backed up by modern science.

Why not a generic curcumin?

Our curcumin is the only one in the world proven to work in dogs and offers up to 29x greater absorption.
