A Golden paste is based on turmeric that has great health benefits to people and animals (horses and dogs) as well. Turmeric is used medicinally for more than 4000 years due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it perfect for treating arthritis, digestion, skin health, immune system, and cancer. Without the adverse side effects, scientists confirmed that turmeric can be as effective as 14 diverse prescription drugs.
An easy way to tap into its superb healing benefits is to consume the golden paste every day in order to improve absorption. Here is the best recipe for Golden paste:
You will need:
- ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 cup spring water (and some more if necessary)
- 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive or coconut oil
- 5 teaspoons of ground black pepper
Take a saucepan, put the water together with some turmeric powder in it and mix well. Slowly heat it up and then stir for about 5 to 10 minutes till you get a nice and thick paste. If it is too thick add some more water. After that, put the black pepper and the oil and continue to stir till all the ingredients are fully combined together. Leave the paste to completely cool down. In the end, place it in a jar and store it in a fridge. The paste will be good for consuming for up to one to two weeks.
A veterinarian, named Doug English, developed this recipe. He has utilized this ancient healing spice in all manner of animals ranging from cats and dogs to the most exotic types of animals like alpacas and crocodiles.
Black pepper is used in the recipe because is so beneficial and it helps the body absorb the turmeric.

Instead of taking the golden paste once in a while like some “medication”, many people incorporate it into their diet or daily routine, and that is truly the most recommendable way.

Health Benefits of Turmeric
Curcumin is a compound in turmeric that is responsible for its marvelous health benefits and gives turmeric’s yellow color. The percentage of curcumin in the turmeric differs depending on type, aromatic or medicinal, as well as how it was processed and where it was grown. During the heating process when making turmeric powder some percentage of curcumin is lost, and that is why the raw turmeric is so healthy.
