Plus, there's one other very important feature about this herb. Most substances, including many vitamins, cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. This is the protective lining of endothelial cells that guard your pet's brain. Curcumin is one of those rare nutrients that can cross the blood-brain barrier. This opens up all kinds of possibilities for your pet's brain health.
One of the biggest challenges with curcumin in humans and dogs and cats is its poor absorption and bioavailability. Curcumin tends to be unstable at intestinal pH levels and is quickly eliminated from the body.
Dr Mercola uses advanced technology to enhance the bioavailability of Curcumin for Pets.It creates micro-particles of curcumin that helps protect the fragile, active nutrients until they reach the absorption site. And it provides “sustained release” of nutrients over time so your pet may benefit from more efficient absorption.
