Yucc' It Up!™ Cushing's / IR Support Formula
Includes 2,000 IU of Natural Vitamin E per serving.

Designed for horses with Cushing's Disease and/or Insulin Resistance. Formulated to support the endocrine system, including pituitary function & natural balancing of hormones, including insulin. 

Our proprietary blend contains organic superfoods & herbs which help to cleanse the blood, support liver, kidneys & adrenals, support a normal inflammatory response, digestion, balanced blood sugar levels, protection of cellular health & strengthen the immune system.

Our Cushing's / IR Support formula includes chaste tree berry herb which reads the individual body’s hormonal scape via the hypothalamus gland & acts accordingly to bring balance. Chaste tree berry has a stimulating effect on dopaminergic neurons, which is important for horses with Cushing’s as this disease is caused by a loss of the dopaminergic neurons of the hypothalamus. Insulin is an endocrine hormone; so by naturally balancing hormones, insulin resistance subsides. We also include chamomile flowers help to strengthen the immune system, provide antioxidants, fight inflammation, support the thyroid, help with stress management / provide calming, help balance blood sugar & more. We also include Ceylon cinnamon, coconut oil & flaxseed to assist with balancing blood sugar levels, support a normal inflammatory response, foster healthy gut flora (prebiotics), strengthen the immune system & more. Anise seed is also included for an irresistible flavor your horse will love, while supporting digestion, eliminating gas, supporting a normal inflammatory response, helping balance blood sugar levels & more.

Benefits of Yucca: anti-inflammatory, anti-protozoal (destroys protozoa / amoebas / parasites; inhibits their ability to thrive & reproduce), helps manage pain, anti-arthritic, supports balanced cholesterol, supports intestinal health, increases circulation, rich in antioxidants, contains free radical scavengers which suppress reactive oxygen species that stimulate inflammatory responses, contains saponins (natural cleansers), supports balanced blood sugar, has a calming effect & more!


Add-On Options:
Available with Strawberry powder or our Essential Oil Trio: Copaiba EO, Peppermint EO & Frankincense EO. The essential oils ("EO's") provide additional support of a normal inflammatory response (e.g., arthritis, creaky joints), immune system support, pain management support & more.

Diet & Supportive Products for Cushing's / IR horses:
Properly managing the diet of a Cushing's or IR horse is critical. We prefer offering a grain-free diet, inclusive of organic prebiotic, anti-inflammatory foods (see: Grace's Abundance in our Feed Topper collection). We also recommend our Hay Harmony™ (feed topper) to assist with metabolizing iron overload from hay & pasture. We recommend Equinety (feed topper) pure amino acids as this unique blend targets the pituitary gland, encourages rapid hoof growth & helps the body heal itself on a cellular level. Organic, full-spectrum CBD Oil (contact us for NuLeaf Naturals at a discount) can also be tremendously helpful during a flare-up or when used preventatively to replenish the naturally occurring endocannabinoid system, helping to manage inflammation & pain. Studies have shown that probiotic use for as little as two weeks can help lower ACTH levels (see our Affiliates page, we suggest Sustenance Herbs probiotic blend for equines). Our Nettle Leaf (feed topper) is also helpful by increasing circulation, helping to manage inflammation & offering a wide range of naturally occurring nutrients. Last but not least, ocean Kelp is an excellent source of non-radioactive iodine (safer alternative to EDDI, which is flagged by PubChem as an irritant & registered with EPA as a pesticide). Our Icelandic Kelp (feed topper) assists with thyroid function, offers chlorophyll to cleanse the blood, alkalizes the body, provides vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients & more. A Cushing's / IR Starter Kit is in the works so check back soon for ways to order some of the suggested items at a discount!
