GOLDEN PASTE RECIPE
1/2 cup Turmeric Powder (organic)
1 – 1.5 cups Water
1/4 cup Coconut Oil (organic) is a healthy fat that makes the liver metabolise the curcumin (the active compound in turmeric) slower so there is better absorption of curcumin.
1.5 tsp Black Pepper (finely ground) It's active compound is piperine, which increases the bioavailability of curcumin and makes it easier for your dog’s body to absorb it (by 2000%, so don't miss this ingredient out).
Mix the turmeric with the water in a pan. Start with 1 cup and add more only if necessary.
Stir the liquid on medium/low heat and in 7 to 10 minutes it should form a thick paste. If your paste looks watery, just add a bit more turmeric and heat it for another couple of minutes.
Once you’ve got a paste, add the black pepper and coconut oil and stir very well.
Allow the mixture to cool, then place it in a jar and store it in your fridge. Ideally you should store the paste for no more than two weeks. After that, you’ll want to make a fresh batch.
Add the Golden Paste directly to your dog’s meals by mixing it with some water. Most dogs don’t mind the taste at all!
