WONDERFUL BENEFITS, including :

Relieves Anxiety & Stress                                                                                                             One of the most popular and well-known uses of Hemp Oil is to get relief from stress and anxiety. The natural compounds found in this oil, including the famed THC, which is what gives Hemp the distinction of a drug in many countries, are very good for releasing pleasure hormones and relaxing the mind, reducing stress and inducing a sense of calmness and relaxation.

Promotes Good Sleep
For people who suffer from insomnia, constant anxiety during the night, or simply struggle to get a sound, restful night of undisturbed sleep, Hemp Essential Oil works like a charm. By relaxing the body and mind, and inducing a lower energy level, it will be easier to get your heart rate down and clear your head before a long night of peaceful slumber.

Appetite Booster
It is well known that people who consume Hemp in other forms notice increased appetite, famously called “the munchies”. However, Hemp Essential Oil can help regulate your appetite and induce hunger, while also stimulating your digestive system to operate at a regular level. This can help people who want to gain weight quickly, particularly after an extended illness or injury recovery.

Pain Reliever
Hemp Essential Oil works as a great pain reliever and is regularly suggested for people with inflammation, chronic pain, and even emergency pain relief. There is a very good reason why people who suffer from cancer often turn to hemp related options, including Hemp Essential Oil, when the pain of chemotherapy or the disease itself becomes unbearable.

Helps Prevent Cancer
Although there is still some controversy over this, and a great deal of research still ongoing, early reports have shown that the active ingredients in Hemp Essential Oil can have preventative effects on cancer, and can also cause reduction in tumor size, thereby making it easier to effectively beat cancer for those patients already suffering from this tragic disease.

Improves Heart Health
The volatility in Hemp Essential Oil can also help to improve heart health by balancing out the negative oils in your system. It can stimulate antioxidant processes as well, scraping off excess cholesterol and maximizing the health of your cardiovascular system.

Skin Care
The powerful components of Hemp essential oil are used to protect the skin, and can be consumed both internally and applied externally to achieve this important side effect. It can stimulate the shedding of dead skin and faster re-growth of healthy, glowing skin. It is also known to prevent wrinkles and signs of aging, while also protecting against eczema and psoriasis.

Reduces Glaucoma
In terms of eye health, Hemp and Hemp Essential Oil have been linked to a reduction in glaucoma and a prevention of macular degeneration. Eye health is one of the major reasons why people turn to Hemp essential oil as they age.

Eliminates Headaches
Topically applying some Hemp Essential Oil at the temples or the spot of intensity for a migraine or a headache can be an effective way to get relief. Many people turn to prescriptions for Hemp and Hemp essential oil due to its potent defense against crippling headaches and pain.

Word of Caution

Although this list clearly shows that Hemp Essential Oil can be an effective remedy for many common health conditions, it is still a potent chemical substance extracted from a plant with psychotropic substances. Therefore, you should always be very careful while using such an essential oil, including the amount you use and the conditions under which you use it. Speak to a professional about mixing essential oils and present medications before adding any new elements to your health regimen. Also, use of Hemp is restricted/banned in many countries, so consult a local health specialist before use.

Doctor’s and researchers all over the world are stunned by this oil that is…

Antibacterial
Antiviral
Antifungal
Antioxidant
Anti-inflammatory
Skin regenerative
Cardio protective

So why aren’t we using it for EVERYTHING?

 

 

Dear Reader,

It’s controversial, but I’ll come right out and say it:

Unless you’re prepared to worry about cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and Alzheimer’s for the rest of your life, YOU SHOULD BE USING HEMP.

Not the type of hemp you’re associating with the recreational drug, marijuana, but the powerful health oil from the seeds of the hemp plant.

Confused?

Well that’s probably because the one thing you don’t know about hemp is that not only does it contain almost no trace of the psychoactive properties marijuana is famous for but, over the last 20 years, some of the world’s most trusted medical institutions – including the World Health Organisation, Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic and John Hopkins Medical Centre – have published over 17,000 reports supporting hemp seed oil as a natural remedy.

  • John Hopkins Medical Centre says it causes cancer cell suicide!
  • The University of Manitoba in Canada reports it puts the brakes on the blood sugarrollercoaster you’re on.
  • The University of Nagoya in Japan declares it slashes your heart attack risk by 66%.
  • Studies published by international journal, Advanced Nutrition Publications, reveal it provides relief from joint pain, muscle pain and rheumatoid arthritis. 
  • While memory expert, Dr Fiona McPherson confirms it regenerates the part of the brain that stores memories.

But these studies aren’t the reason I’m such a big believer in hemp seed oil. It’s the thousands upon thousands of success stories I’ve read.
The results don’t lie!
People using hemp oil are blowing the sceptics away
“From death’s door to CANCER-FREE in just eight months – it’s all thanks to hemp oil”

Take oncologist, Dr William Courtney who had the daunting task of treating an eight month old baby suffering from a malignant, inoperable brain tumour.

Her parents declined chemotherapy. Yet, her dad pushed Dr Courtney to help improve his child’s quality of life with hemp seed oil.

It did much more than that!

After only two months, an MRI scan revealed a dramatic improvement in the tumour size.

Miraculously, six months later, the scans were completely clean.

That’s right. No cancer remained!

Impossible?

Here’s a picture of her actual scans. They show how hemp oil helped her go from hopeless case to cancer-free in just eight months.

Then there’s Rick Simpson…

“Hemp seed oil solved Rick’s headaches, insomnia and ringing ears – it even defeated his joint pain and lowered his blood pressure”

Rick was working in a hospital boiler room when he suffered a concussion. For years afterwards, he suffered from debilitating headaches, ringing ears and had trouble sleeping.

In 1998, he decided that since his prescription meds weren’t working anyway, he’d try marijuana. Eventually, he started experimenting with hemp seed oil because the marijuana was interfering with his day-to-day life.

Soon after he started using it, his headaches went away, the ringing in his ears became tolerable and he slept better. More surprising, his arthritis disappeared and his blood pressure improved too.

“Within a few months, people saw the difference. The oil controlled the pain, my blood pressure, and it allowed me to sleep. I lost weight and looked 20 years younger.”

Today, Rick is hemp seed oil’s biggest champion. He’s dedicated his life to giving people with all types of diseases and disabilities free hemp seed oil. And he’s had over 5,000 success stories to date.

In fact, he’s adamant this is a “cure-all solution”, he believes “if children were given tiny doses of [hemp] oil each day like a supplement, diseases like cancer, diabetes, MS, and many other conditions could be eliminated entirely.”

How about Lorraine from the Free State? She recently wrote in to tell me about her experience with hemp oil. Here’s her story…

“My diabetes is gone!”

“I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes after my doctor discovered my thyroid wasn’t working thanks to years of hormone replacement medication. My sugar was out of control, I couldn’t lose weight and my health was so bad even my liver was beginning to shut down.

A friend told me about hemp seed oil and how it could help.

Naturally, I was sceptical and worried about the negative effects, but I felt hopeless and ready to try anything.

I’m glad I did.

It’s been just over a year now and my blood sugar has stabilised, my thyroid is working and I’ve been able to lose the weight. My health is better than ever.”

Then there’s the story Health Bytes nutritionist, Jacques Boshoff, told me about a patient he recommended hemp oil to.

“I used to have dialysis every day – now I only go once a month”

“Mr Kogohara started using hemp oil because he was suffering from kidney failure. Having to live on dialysis daily, he was ready to try anything and started taking hemp seed oil with his morning detoxjuice.

It’s been almost a year and Mr Kogohara is doing so well his kidneys are almost functioning on their own again. The best part is, he now only has to have precautionary dialysis once a month.”

There’s also:

  • Constance Finley a San Francisco woman living with ankylosing spondylitis – chronic arthritis of the spine and the pelvis. After an almost fatal allergic reaction to the drugs she was on, Constance put hemp seed oil to the test. Today, she’s pain-free.
  • Famous comedian, Tommy Chong. In 2012, he announced he had stage 1 prostate cancer. Thanks to hemp seed oil, Tommy told the world he was cancer-free a year after receiving the diagnosis.
  • 24-year-old Kristina Marie. She believed her doctors had handed her a death sentence when they diagnosed her with a brain tumour. Since starting hemp oil treatment in 2014, Kristina’s brain tumour size has halved – and it’s still shrinking.  

The success stories go on and on…

Personally, I could read them all day.

But there’s something far more pressing.

And that’s the question you’re asking yourself right now….

Based on the mounds of evidence that shows it works…
Why does mainstream medicine still refuse to promote hemp seed oil?
Why hasn’t your doctor told you to try it?
It’s the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) fault.

Doctors are afraid to prescribe this medical herb simply because the FDA hasn’t approved it yet.

And even though in December the FDA finally gave a few universities permission to run trials on its effects on seizures, cancer and arthritis, it’ll be years before it gives hemp oil the nod. Let alone, make it okay for your doctor to prescribe it to you.

Years where you’ll continue to suffer from cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s and more.

Not if I can help it….
I’ve had it with mainstream medicine’s decision to ignore the results people have seen!
Hi.

I’m Vanessa Jackson. Researcher and Product Manager for FSPHealthandFitness.co.za and member of the FSP Nutritionals team.

This humble, but immensely powerful seed, kills MRSA, heals the chemical weapon poisoned body, stimulates regeneration of the dying beta cells within the diabetic’s pancreas, and yet too few even know it exists.

Benefits of Black Seed

The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial.  While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance. The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt.

Black seed oil, in fact, was found in Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun’s tomb, dating back to approximately 3,300 years  ago

[i]  In Arabic cultures, black cumin is known as Habbatul barakah, meaning the “seed of blessing.” It is also believed that the Islamic prophet Mohammed said of it that it is “a remedy for all diseases except death.”

egyptian tomb - benefits of black seed

 

Many of black cumin’s traditionally ascribed health benefits have been thoroughly confirmed in the biomedical literature. In fact, since 1964, there have been 656 published,  peer-reviewed studies referencing it.

We have indexed salient research, available to view on GreenMedInfo.com on our Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) page, on well over 40 health conditions that may be benefited from the use of the herb, including over 20 distinct pharmacological actions it expresses, such as:

  • Analgesic (Pain-Killing)
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Anti-Ulcer
  • Anti-Cholinergic
  • Anti-Fungal
  • Ant-Hypertensive
  • Antioxidant
  • Antispasmodic
  • Antiviral
  • Bronchodilator
  • Gluconeogenesis Inhibitor (Anti-Diabetic)
  • Hepatoprotective (Liver Protecting)
  • Hypotensive
  • Insulin Sensitizing
  • Interferon Inducer
  • Leukotriene Antagonist
  • Renoprotective (Kidney Protecting)
  • Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Inhibitor

 

These 30 pharmacological actions are only a subset of a far wider number of beneficial properties intrinsic to the black seed. While it is remarkable that this seed has the ability to positively modulate so many different biological pathways, this is actually a rather common occurrence among traditional plant medicines.

Natural RX: Greenmedinfo

 

Our project has identified over 1600 natural compounds with a wide range of health benefits, and we are only in our first 5 years of casual indexing. There are tens of thousands of other substances that have already been researched, with hundreds of thousands of studies supporting their medicinal value (MEDLINE, whence our study abstracts come, has over 600,000 studies classified as related to Complementary and Alternative Medicine).

Take turmeric, for example. We have identified research indicating its value in over 600 health conditions, while also expressing over 160 different potentially beneficial pharmacological actions. You can view the quick summary of over 1500 studies we have summarized on our Turmeric Research page, which includes an explorative video on turmeric. Professional database members are further empowered to manipulate the results according to their search criteria, i.e. pull up and print to PDF the 61 studies on turmeric and breast cancer.  This, of course, should help folks realize how voluminous the supportive literature indicating the medicinal value of natural substances, such as turmeric and black seed, really is.

Black seed has been researched for very specific health conditions. Some of the most compelling applications include:

  • Type 2 Diabetes: Two grams of black seed a day resulted in reduced fasting glucose, decreased insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduced glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in human subjects.[ii]
  • Helicobacter Pylori Infection: Black seeds possess clinically useful anti-H. pylori activity, comparable to triple eradication therapy.[iii]
  • Epilepsy: Black seeds were traditionally known to have anticonvulsive properties. A 2007 study with epileptic children, whose condition was refractory to conventional drug treatment, found that a water extract significantly reduced seizure activity.[iv]
  • High Blood pressure: The daily use of 100 and 200 mg of black seed extract, twice daily, for 2 months, was found to have a blood pressure-lowering effect in patients with mild hypertension.[v]
  • Asthma: Thymoquinone, one of the main active constituents within Nigella sativa (black cumin), is superior to the drug fluticasone in an animal model of asthma.[vi] Another study, this time in human subjects, found that boiled water extracts of black seed have relatively potent anti-asthmatic effect on asthmatic airways.[vii]
  • Acute tonsillopharyngitis: characterized by tonsil or pharyngeal inflammation (i.e. sore throat), mostly viral in origin, black seed capsules (in combination with Phyllanthus niruri) have been found to significantly alleviate throat pain, and reduce the need for pain-killers, in human subjects.[viii]
  • Chemical Weapons Injury: A randomized, placebo-controlled human study of chemical weapons injured patients found that boiled water extracts of black seed reduced respiratory symptoms, chest wheezing, and pulmonary function test values, as well as reduced the need for drug treatment.[ix]
  • Colon Cancer: Cell studies have found that black seed extract compares favorably to the chemoagent 5-fluoruracil in the suppression of colon cancer growth, but with a far higher safety profile.[x] Animal research has found that black seed oil has significant inhibitory effects against colon cancer in rats, without observable side effects.[xi]
  • MRSA: Black seed has anti-bacterial activity against clinical isolates of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus.[xii]
  • Opiate Addiction/Withdrawal: A study on 35 opiate addicts found black seed as an effective therapy in long-term treatment of opioid dependence.[xiii]

Sometimes the biblical reference to ‘faith the size of a mustard seed moving mountains’ comes to mind in connection with natural substances like black seeds. After all, do seeds not contain within them the very hope for continuance of the entire species that bore it?  This super-saturated state of the seed, where life condenses itself down into an intensely miniaturized holographic fragment of itself, promising the formation of future worlds within itself, is the very emblem of life’s immense and immortal power.

If we understand the true nature of the seed, how much life (past, present and future) is contained within it, it will not seem so far-fetched that it is capable of conquering antibiotic resistant bacteria, healing the body from chemical weapons poisoning, or stimulate the regeneration of dying insulin-producing beta cells in the diabetic, to name but only a fraction of black seed’s experimentally-confirmed powers.

black seeds

Moving the mountain of inertia and falsity associated with the conventional concept of disease, is a task well-suited for seeds and not chemicals. The greatest difference, of course, between a seed and a patented synthetic chemical (i.e. pharmaceutical drug), is that Nature (God) made the former, and men with profit-motives and a deranged understanding of the nature of the body made the latter.

The time, no doubt, has come for food, seeds, herbs, plants, sunlight, air, clean water, and yes, love, to assume once again their central place in medicine, which is to say, the art and science of facilitating self-healing within the human body. Failing this, the conventional medical system will crumble under the growing weight of its own corruption, ineptitude, and iatrogenic suffering (and subsequent financial liability) it causes. To the degree that it reforms itself, utilizing non-patented and non-patentable natural compounds with actual healing properties, a brighter future awaits on the horizon. To the degree that it fails, folks will learn to take back control over their health themselves, which is why black seed, and other food-medicines, hold the key to self-empowerment.

Marvellous Moringa Special

moringa-specials

 

The many health benefits of Moringa oleifera

by Michael Ravensthorpe

(NaturalNews) Moringa oleifera, also called the drumstick tree, is a tree that grows in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India. It is also cultivated throughout Central and South America and Africa due to the ease with which it grows in tropical and sub-tropical environments.

While moringa remains relatively unknown in the West, it has developed a reputation in its native lands for its unusually high nutritional value. Indeed, health researchers have started to give it nicknames such as “The Miracle Tree” and “The Elixir of Long Life” due to its miraculous healing abilities. Let’s take a closer look at the health benefits of moringa and see whether these names are justified.

 

 

 

 

Moringa’s health benefits

Antioxidant activity – According to analysis, the powdered leaves of the moringa tree (which is the way most people consume moringa) contains 46 types of antioxidants. One serving, in fact, contains 22 percent of our recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin C, one of the most important antioxidants on Earth, and a whopping 272 percent of our RDI of vitamin A. Antioxidants help to neutralize the devastating impact of free radicals, thereby guarding us from cancer and degenerative diseases such as macular degeneration and cystic fibrosis.

Rich in amino acids – The leaves of the moringa tree contain 18 amino acids, eight of which are essential amino acids, making them a “complete” protein – a rarity in the plant world. Indeed, moringa’s protein content rivals that of meat, making it an excellent source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. Protein is, of course, needed to build muscle, cartilage, bones, skin and blood and is also needed to produce enzymes and hormones.

Calcium and magnesium – One serving of moringa leaves provides us with approximately 125 percent of our RDI of calcium and 61 percent of our RDI of magnesium. These two trace minerals work in synergy; while calcium is needed to build strong bones and teeth, we also need magnesium to help us absorb it. Since moringa contains generous quantities of both, it is especially good at guarding us from osteoporosis and other bone conditions.

Extensive nutrient concentrationsMoringa leaves contain 90 different types of nutrients, including four times more calcium than milk, four times more potassium than bananas, four times more vitamin A than carrots, 50 times more vitamin B3 than peanuts, 36 times more magnesium than eggs, and 25 times more iron than spinach. It also includes high amounts of additional nutrients such as dietary fiber, iodine, lutein, zinc, selenium, zeatin and beta-carotene.

Produces a healthy oil – Although moringa is mostly celebrated for its leaves, its seeds also have a worthwhile purpose: the pods contain almost 40 percent of an edible, non-drying oil called “ben oil,” which is comparable to olive oil in nutritional and antioxidant value. Ben oil is odorless, sweet-tasting, clear and – most importantly – lasts indefinitely. In fact, moringa leaf powder is also immune from spoiling, making both the tree’s oil and leaves excellent survival foods.

Nourishes the skin – Due to their trace mineral content, dried and powdered moringa leaves are great for nourishing the skin. Indeed, more and more cosmetic companies are starting to include moringa extracts in their products for this reason. Moringa creams and lotions can be applied topically on the desired areas, thus allowing the nutrients to soak into, and rejuvenate, the skin.

Regularly consuming moringa leaves has also been linked to lower blood pressure, improved digestion and mood, immune-boosting effects and, thanks to their high fiber levels and low fat and calorie levels, weight loss.

Turmeric and Curcumin –

Good for Your Dog’s Health

Source : http://ottawavalleydogwhisperer.blogspot.com/2012/11/turmeric-and-curcumin-good-for-your.html

Adding Turmeric (Curcuma longa) to your dog’s daily diet can provide your dog with a vast array of health benefits.
Turmeric, a spice is derived from the root of the Curcuma longa (also known as Indian Saffron), a perennial plant of the ginger family. The exact genesis of the plant is not known as the plant’s original origins are lost in the history of ancient trade; however it is likely that the plant originated in South East Asia or South Asia.
 
The Curcuma longa’s root system includes oblong tubers – similar to those of the ginger plant. The tubers are boiled or steamed, dried, and then ground. The resulting powder has a pungent slightly bitter flavour.
Although dogs have a much better sense of smell than humans – a dog’s noise has a minimum of 300 million olfactory sensors to our paltry 3 million, the dog’s sense of taste is less than ours (a dog averages 1700 taste buds whereas a human has 9000 taste buds). This means that the slightly bitter taste of turmeric is not off-putting for the majority of dogs.
The scent of turmeric is reminiscent of oranges and ginger. Once it is dried and ground into a powder the scent is slightly bitter and medicinal.
Turmeric is a deep, warm yellow-orange color. The rich colour of turmeric comes from a naturally occurring pigment in the Curcuma longa tuber – the pigment is called Curcumin. Curry gets its colour from curcumin and some of its flavour from turmeric. Turmeric is a mainstay of India dishes and is also used as a substitute for saffron.
This revered spice has been used as a dye, flavouring and medicine since 600 BC. Turmeric is a very important spice in India – its use dates back 4000 years to the Vedic culture. India is the main source of the world’s supply of Turmeric, China and Indonesia also grow and produce the spice.
Health Benefits of Turmeric
Curcumin is thought to be the principal pharmacological agent in turmeric. As an ancient medication turmeric was used in traditional Asian medicine as a blood purifier, liver ailment mediator, for the healing of skin diseases and sores and wounds and as a stomach tonic. In Thailand turmeric was used as an astringent, anti-diarrheal agent, appetite stimulant, as a carminative, to treat dizziness, gonorrhoea, peptic ulcers and as a topical treatment to stop bleeding, treat insect bites, treat teeth and gums, eradicate ringworms and heal wounds.
 
Today, turmeric is one of the most extensively researched herb-spices for pharmacological use. It is favored for its potentially beneficial use in treating and/or reducing symptoms linked to an extensive range of health conditions due to its excellent qualities as an:
  • Analgesic (pain fighting);
  • Antibacterial;
  • Anti-inflammatory;
  • Anti-oxidant;
  • Antiseptic;
  •  Anti-tumour agent (anti-carcinogen);
 

Turmeric has been shown to be effective in preventing and/or treating:

  • Aids in fat metabolism and weight management;
  • Allergic respiratory disorders – Ashthma;
  • Arthritis;
  • Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties relieves aches and pains associated with arthritis (see additional information under curcumin below);
  • Beneficial for trauma from accidents as it helps lower serum levels which would otherwise cause massive inflammation leading to the shutdown of the heart and other organs;
  • Artherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries – heart disease) by lowering bad LDL cholesterol;
  • Bacterial infections – the volatile oil is an external broad spectrum antibiotic which acts to prevent bacterial infection in wounds;
  • Blood purifier – beneficial in the treatment of skin disorders;
  • Cancer inhibitor;
  • Cardiovascular conditions;
  • Chemotherapy – reduces the negative side-effects of chemotherapy;
  • Detoxifier – turmeric is a natural liver detoxifier;
  • Disinfectant for wounds and burns (antiseptic and antibacterial);
  • Digestive disorders;
  • Turmeric induces the flow of bile which acts to breakdown fat;
  • Protects against injuries caused by some medications;
  • Helps prevent gas/bloating;
  • Inflammation (turmeric’s anti-inflammatory quality has been compared to topical hydrocortisone);
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD;
  • Memory disorders;
  • Neuritis (inflammation of the optic nerve)
  • Peptic ulcers;
  • Skin disorders;
  • Strengthens ligaments.
Other Health Benefits of Turmeric
  • High in fiber;
  • Rich in vitamins (high in vitamin B6 and potassium) and minerals (high in iron and manganese);
  • Excellent for metabolism health and a natural weight-loss aid.
  • Turmeric is even more powerful as a cancer inhibitor when teamed up with cauliflower…of particular importance to prevent prostate cancer.
  • This dog-food recipe includes both turmeric and cauliflower.
Health Benefits of Curcumin
  • Anti-oxidant (anti-aging);
  • Anti-Angiogenic (tumour preventing);
  • Anti-Carcinogenic;
  • Anti-Diabetic;
  • Anti-Inflammatory;
  • Anti-Apoptotic (preventing cell death i.e. from radiation);
  • Anti-Metastatic (inhibits the over-growth of cells);
  • Cardiovascular Protection;
  • Lower LDL (bad) Cholesterol;
  • Detoxer;
  • Imuno-modulatory (immune system enhancing);
  • Neuro-Protective (protects the Central Nervous System – CNS).
Anti-Inflammatory – curcumin has been shown in numerous studies, to be comparable to the potent conventional medicines hydrocortisone, phenylbutazone as well as over-the counter anti-inflammatory agents. But unlike these conventional mendicants curcumin does not have toxic side-effects.
Cancer Inhibitor – due to its powerful antioxidant properties. Curcumin is effective in protecting colon cells from free radicals that can cause damage to healthy cell DNA – of particular importance as cell growth in the colon is particularly rapid. Curcumin also helps the body destroy mutated cancer cells thereby stopping the spread of cancer throughout the body. Curcumin enhances liver function – the liver is a primary toxin filter for the body, so enhancing its function supports health in many ways. Curcumin is also considered to inhibit the growth of the protein that is thought to be instrumental in triggering tumour formation. Curcumin has been shown to inhibit transcription factors (the ‘master switch’ that regulates genes required for tumor formulation).
Lower Bad Cholesterol and support Heart Health – Curcumin is a messaging molecule that communicates with genes in live cells. This active agent of turmeric directs cells to increase the production of messenger proteins that in turn direct the creation of receptors for LDL (Bad) cholesterol. An increase of LDL-receptors enables the liver to clear more LDL from the body.
Preventing Toxic Loading and Liver Damage – The liver plays a huge role in detoxifying the body. As dogs are exposed to ever increasing amounts of toxins in their diet (i.e. as found in many commercially produced dog foods and treats, dental care products – dental chews and toothpaste) and their environment (i.e. household cleaners, road salt, grassshampoo etc.) the incidence of liver damage and liver failure is exponentially increasing. Turmeric boosts the ability of the liver to de-toxify.
Rheumatoid Arthritis – clinical studies have proven that curcumin provides highly powerful antioxidant effects as its ability to neutralize free radicals is substantial. Free radicals cause the painful inflammation and eventual damage to joints.
Defence Against Neurological Diseases of Old-Age – as curcumin is able to turn on gene codes for the production of antioxidant proteins it provides enhanced protection against some neurological diseases brought on by old age.
Weight and Metabolism Management –If your dog is overweight you might want to try adding either turmeric or curcumin to his/her daily diet…new research by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has confirmed that curcumin helps to speed up metabolism.
The Dog Food Industry and Turmeric
Many commercial dog food manufacturers are now putting turmeric in their dog kibble. But please don’t be fooled by advertising – the inclusion of turmeric in commercially prepared dog kibble is not an indication that the kibble is a nutritionally balanced quality product.
The quantity and quality of the turmeric included in the food may be insufficient to have any positive effect on your dog’s health and worse – the turmeric may be of poor quality (i.e. grown with pesticides).
Turmeric is becoming a ‘hot word’ in the pet food manufacturing sector, just as ‘omega’ and ‘probiotic’. As the pet food industry – at least in North America) is unregulated pertaining to their use of terms vs. factual substantiation of actual quality/ratio of ingredient.
Manufactures rely on the ignorance of the consumer – profit before ethics. I have yet to see a commercially prepared dog kibble that includes the appropriate ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids. Adding ‘probiotics’ to commercially prepared dog kibble is a ridiculous conceit as the heat required during processing of the kibble kills the probiotic microorganisms, thus rendering them useless.
So just as with omega fatty acids and probiotics – your best bet is to add turmeric directly to your dog’s diet – do not expect the trace amounts included in some dog foods to benefit your dog’s health.
Adding Turmeric (or Curcumin) to Your Dog’s Daily Diet is Simple…

  • Sprinkle it on top of your dog’s dry or wet food, and/or;
  • If you home-cook your dog’s food you can add turmeric to your dog-food recipe;
  • You can also try this dog food recipe that I use which contains turmeric.
  • My dogs get turmeric on a daily basis in their homemade dog food and also sprinkled on top of their daily ration of fresh food along with other herbs and spices.
  • You can also add turmeric to homemade dog treats.
What Type of Turmeric (or Curcumin) is Best…
You can use powder (most commonly available), crushed or fresh root. I use the powder form (ground turmeric). The quality of turmeric varies vastly. Turmeric sold is in the typical grocery store and bulk food store is mass produced, grown with pesticides and herbicides and is, as a result low in beneficial potency. For maximum benefit it is best to purchase turmeric from a reputable supplier of high-quality organic turmeric.
How To Store Turmeric (or Curcumin)
Fresh turmeric rhizome should be kept in the refrigerator;
Turmeric and/or curcumin powder should be stored in a tightly sealed, container and kept in a cool, dark, dry location.
Turmeric and Curcumin is a Natural Dye

When feeding your dog turmeric powder on top of food, just make sure you don’t place your dog’s food bowl on a surface such as a cherished carpet as the deep yellow-gold colour of the spice can stain the surface it falls on.
