CurcuVET® is a unique, patented curcumin product available exclusively from ThorneVET. For centuries people throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry) and is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits including for joint health, hepatic support, gastrointestinal health, and cardiovascular function – by helping to maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response.

CurcuVET is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. Whether taken as a supplement or from food, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Scientists at Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, have uncovered the key to curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to a phospholipid, in this case phosphatidylcholine (PC), an essential component of cell membranes. When taken orally, PC is very well absorbed. By attaching a curcumin molecule to a PC molecule, the PC ushers the curcumin across the cell membrane for superior absorption.

Studies demonstrate CurcuVET supports a healthy inflammatory response in small animals and horses.

A similar equine study on the effect of CurcuVET on cytokine gene expression found significant down-regulation of interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-1RN in mares and inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2, TNF-α, and IL-1RN and increase in IL-6 in foals.

A recent European canine study found CurcuVET was effective in helping to maintain the balance of markers associated with a normal inflammatory response.

In a similar equine study, the effect of CurcuVET on mares and foals was found to have a positive impact on maintaining normal inflammatory responses.
