Curcumin complexed with phosphatidylcholine for superior bioavailability
for maintenance of the animal's normal inflammatory response
provides potent antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity
significantly increased bioavailability from the phytosome preparation
CurcuVET® is a unique, patented curcumin product available exclusively from Thorne Vet. 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 &ndash 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 &ndash 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.
A 2007 study published in the journal, Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, demonstrated the superior bioavailability of curcumin phytosome (as Meriva®, the CurcuVET equivalent for humans) compared to ordinary curcumin. Liver levels of curcumin were also higher with this supplementation. In a more recent (soon to be published) randomized, single-blind, crossover study in nine humans, total curcuminoid bioavailability as evaluated by the plasma area under the curve (AUC) was about 29-fold higher for Meriva than for the conventional turmeric extract.
Curcumin has demonstrated its potential to help maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response. In numerous animal studies, curcumin has shown the ability to help maintain healthy intestinal mucosa under various adverse conditions. Among the effects noted in the various trials have been decreased nuclear factor-kappaB, nitric oxide, and free radicals in the colonic mucosa. For example, a small human pilot study on patients who had poor gastrointestinal health demonstrated that the administration of curcumin improved overall well-being, maintained the levels of biomarkers generally associated with the body's normal inflammatory response, and served as an non-drug adjunct that did not disrupt the use of conventional medications.

CurcuVET SA150 90
By Amy from USA on November 28, 2011
After giving CurcuVET-SA150 to my pet for about 3 days, I had to discontinue as vomiting had started. I may decide to re-start her on it to rule out coincidence. I must say I'm disappointed with the reaction as she is not a candidate for NSAID's.
Cons:Can cause GI upset as noted on the bottle
I would recommend this item to a friend.
