Turmeric has long been used in cooking but now it is also thought to have health and wellbeing benefits in humans and horses. It is a valuable source of curcumin and other bioactive compounds, which have strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Turmeric is good for joint flexibility and promotes a healthy digestion. It may also be useful for horses prone to itchy or damaged skin.
Black pepper is included as it contains piperine, a compound, which aids the absorption of curcumin into the body. For optimal results, we also recommend feeding with a high quality oil, such as Linseed Oil
Ponies and smaller horses: 5g daily (approx. ½ rounded scoop)
Larger horses: 10g daily (approx. 1 rounded scoop)
As with any new feed or supplement, we recommend introducing it gradually to your horse’s diet over a few weeks.
Pregnancy & Lactation - Speak to your vet before administering to pregnant or lactating mares.
Warnings & Contraindications – There are reports that Curcumin may affect iron metabolism so we do not advise feeding turmeric to anaemic horses.
Exercise caution when adding Tumeric to the feed as it may stain.
