There has been considerable interest in feeding turmeric to horses during recent years. The veterinarian Dr Doug English introduced the concept of using Turmeric for horses with sarcoids and skin issues. He set up the Turmeric User Group on Facebook, to share his ideas and experiences with the global community. Since then there have been countless reports from horse and pet owners reporting the beneficial effects of turmeric on sarcoids, skin conditions, inflammation and arthritis.

Turmeric contains curcuminoids which are thought to be the active ingredient in Turmeric. Turmeric is insoluble in water, and curcumin is not recognised by the liver, making turmeric limited biological availablility. Dr Doug developed the Golden Paste, where he combined turmeric with an oil (olive or coconut), heated this mixture and added ground black pepper. Turmeric is soluble in oil, and so mixing with oil assists transport across the intestinal wall. Coconut oil is preferred because unlike all other oils it is absorbed directly into the portal blood, Black pepper prevents the excretion of compounds such as curcumin by the liver.
