You may wonder why then, the Golden Milk recipe is suggested as a good method to take turmeric in a drink. This is because the turmeric is gently simmered in the milk/water mixture first. This greatly improves the bio-availability – even when taken alone without a meal it will be beneficial. Black pepper and coconut oil (or other healthy fat) is added as well. I would suggest you prepare your tea by simmering it first, let it cool then drink it as you like it. As to how many almonds as a fat source…I haven’t an idea at all. It is thought that roughly half or less the amount of turmeric to oil is sufficient (ie 1/4 tsp. turmeric 1/8 or less of fat/oil).

According to , while aspirin should never be given to puppies because their systems can't break it down, you can give your adult dog aspirin to relieve pain and/or inflammation, and you should always give it with food. The recommended dosage is 5 mg to 10 mg of aspirin per pound of a dog's weight, as recommended by your veterinarian, and it can be given once every 12 hours. Let your vet know how many milligrams are in the type of aspirin tablet you intend to use, as found on the container label, and your vet will recommend how to cut the tablet down to reach the proper dosage.
