The Many Benefits of Curcumin For You and Your Dog!

This is a paid partnership with CurcuminPro, but all thoughts, photos, and product love are clearly my own!

CurcuminPro makes curcumin products of all kinds, including capsules, shakes, drink mixes, bottled drinks, jelly beans, chocolates, and even a pet food topper. See all the ways you can use it, and its many benefits!

That’s right. I’m about to blow your mind. When you think of ways to feel great, do you think of your pets too?

I’m no stranger to curcumin, as we’ve had it in our house for years. You may be wondering what it is? Curcumin is a substance found in turmeric, and it may help reduce inflammation. It may also help you manage aches and pains. That’s why I was excited to find CurcuminPro – a company that makes curcumin products of all kinds! And they’re really creative! They make capsules, shakes, drink mixes, bottled drinks, chocolates, and even jelly beans! That’s right. Jelly beans.

If that isn’t the coolest thing ever, then I don’t know what is! CurcuminPro also makes a pet food topper, which is also pretty exciting to this growing family. They developed a curcumin-protein conjugate called CPro. It makes curcumin 36 times more soluble than standard curcumin, which you generally have to take with pepper or piperine. This inflames the digestive tract to help you actually absorb it. This is the world’s first biosoluble curcumin supplement line, and it’s been on my radar for my family. To get more in-depth about curcumin, it’s a polyphenolic compound that is derived from the plant Curcuma Longa – commonly known as turmeric. And it’s awesome that it’s been used for centuries as a food preservative.

Curcumin has also been used to treat a wide variety of ailments in Ayurvedic medicine.

So here are the benefits! Curminoids are derived from an extraction of turmeric. They’re a rich source of anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants, and this small plant is the subject of thousands of studies worldwide regarding its ability to assist the healing of the body. This is important because so many of our current illnesses and diseases are rooted in an issue of inflammation happening within different parts of the body. It has 3,000 years of use behind it, with no signs of stopping! It’s like the superfood of the supplement world! Basically there’s no reason not to use it. The jelly beans even say on the label to eat them and feel great. And CurcuminPro has made this great formula for various products.

Did I mention that there’s no soy, additives or fillers? 36 times more soluble. Super awesome. Jelly beans. Maximum bioavailable curcumin per dose. Yummy shakes and drinks. Easy capsules. And that gorgeous turmeric color we all love.

I am SUPER impressed! And not least because they made a pet food topper – CurcuminPro® UltaPet.

This is the only meal topper that offers the highest level of natural curcumin benefits in a BioSoluable™ food enhancer combined with TerraPro™ clay and superior joint supplements. Athena’s multi-action health additive includes TerraPro™, which is a rare earth mineral clay known as one of the best absorbents for aflatoxins. And aflatoxins are acutely toxic and carcinogenic in many animals, but especially dogs. CurcuminPro® UltaPet is an amazing source of the minerals silicon and calcium, which are necessary for joint health. Also, all of this amazingness is super tasty to dogs! Athena loves the powder.

This is a wonderful and convenient way for you to help your pet lives a healthy and awesome life. Here are key benefits:

• BioSoluble™ curcumin — all natural with whey protein isolate (WPI) quickly absorbed and assimilated

• Helps remove aflatoxins

• Supports heart, joint, brain and immune system health

• Natural pain relief and joint support

• High level of curcuminoids — each serving contains approximately 600mg of protein-curcumin complex Key ingredients: The topper is made from defatted beef liver powder and contains CPro whey protein isolate, TerraPro™ clay, MSM, glucosamine HCL, chondroitin sulfate, cetyl myristoleate, and bromelain.

Don’t forget to check out CurminPro here. We have used curcumin products in our house for years, and I’ve written about it too. I’m so impressed with a company that has so much science and data behind it, but also great-tasting, easy-to-use products. We have the jelly beans, of course, and we have the chocolates! Not to mention capsules and powders for yummy drinks and shakes. We have it all and I was bursting to share about it. I’d love to hear what products you’ve tried/will try.

*CurcuminPro® UltaPet is not meant for puppies!

Have you heard of CurcuminPro? Are you a total believer in curcumin? I know I am!

5 Ways to Help Soothe Your Eczema

This post is sponsored by GOLD BOND and SheKnows Media.
Do you suffer from eczema? Whether mild or severe, you can find relief with these 5 tips! My brand new favorite tip is GOLD BOND® Ultimate Eczema Relief #ad

One thing I LOVE is to wear short sleeves or sleeveless dresses.
I don’t live in a climate in which this is possible year-round, YET, but a girl can dream! The warm months are my favorite, but in many ways, those are the toughest times to hide eczema. Eczema is characterized by itchy red rashes on your skin. It is more common for kids, but it can stick around through adulthood too. Everyone who has it experiences it a different way – from mild to severe – but we all find ourselves in similar situations. 

This is a snapshot of what it can be like to have eczema:  

1 – You can’t trust yourself overnight. That’s right – you can try to control the itching/scratching pattern during the day, to some avail, but overnight can be really rough on your skin. You might sleep with gloves on to protect your skin. 2- People will tell you to “Just stop scratching” as if that will solve everything! 3 – You’ll get the red, itchy rashes in odd places. Mine are often on my arms but it can be anywhere. 4 – Summer, with its moist skin, doesn’t necessarily make you feel better. You’ll still feel like you’re shedding dry skin. 5 – You’ll try many things and maybe everything, in order to soothe it, until you find what helps.

Here are five ways to find itch relief and soothe your eczema: 

 

1 – Put ice on it. Make a quick compress with a washcloth or gauze dipped in cold water. You can even use an ice pack or frozen food from the freezer. I’ve used ice cubes in small bags. This helps to numb the area and find some relief. 2 – Take Melatonin. This may help you to sleep through the night. 3 – Using coconut oil can help nourish the skin. 4 – Take a warm bath for 15 minutes and add ground oatmeal to the water for extra soothing. 5 – Discover GOLD BOND® Ultimate Lotion Eczema Relief

When you think of GOLD BOND, you may think of the original medicated powder that started the brand back in 1908! I totally did, and I’m glad I found this product, because it’s been the most effective for my skin. GOLD BOND® Ultimate Eczema Relief goes beyond other leading eczema products with its 2% colloidal oatmeal that helps break the itching-scratching cycle. I love that it’s not greasy and that it is effective at addressing my symptoms until my skin calmed down again.

It has a steroid-free, patented formula that blends colloidal oatmeal – like I mentioned above – as well as seven moisturizers and three vitamins and relieves my itchiness, dryness, scaling/peeling, roughness, and redness/irritation. I keep it at home and always pop it in my travel bag for long days or nights away from home. I once had a terrible rash while away from home and I haven’t had a problem since bringing this along. It hasn’t just helped me! The formula was clinically tested. 8 out of 10 people saw and felt significant skin improvement in two weeks. 8 out of 10 people experienced significant relief of dryness, scaling, and roughness in two weeks. And 9 out of 10 people experienced significant relief of redness/irritation in four weeks. GOLD BOND® Ultimate Eczema Relief is available at all major mass, drug and food retailers for $9.99.
