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!

Well, look at that! Cat litter that you can feel GREAT about buying!

Juniper is quite familiar with the green jug. Whenever we bring home a new one, she comes running to investigate. I love that she’s familiar with it. I like to think it’s because she approves of her cat litter, as strange as that sounds! Just LOOK:

We got Junie from a shelter in June of 2016. They had a bunch of kittens that day, and Junie’s two brothers had been adopted out earlier that morning. We couldn’t believe she was still there! I immediately had to put a deposit on her, so I’d have 24 hours to think about it, but I already knew we’d be back for her when I was backing out of the parking lot. She was barely two pounds, with huge eyes and tufted ears. She fell asleep on my dress the night we got her, and I fell asleep in an exhausted heap too. I knew she was a welcome addition to our family, and that it would be rewarding to keep her as ours.

And right now I have exciting news – the Litter for Good™ program. We love helping rescues and shelters.

What’s the Litter For Good program? When you buy the green jug of Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® or Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light Ultimate Care®, another pound of litter is added to the total amount donated. We love this cat litter because it has great odor control, strong clumping, and low dust. If you’re looking for an incredible lightweight litter that also gives back, this is for you! And you can sign up for the Cat’s Pride Club and nominate your favorite shelter to receive a litter donation.
