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 or Insulin Resistance. Formulated to support the endocrine system, including pituitary function and natural balancing of hormones, including insulin.
Our proprietary blend contains organic superfoods & herbs which help to cleanse the blood, support liver & kidneys, support a normal inflammatory response, digestion, balanced blood sugar levels, protection of cellular health, strengthening of the immune system & more. We include 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. Ceylon cinnamon, yucca, coconut oil and flaxseed assist with balancing blood sugar levels, support a normal inflammatory response, foster healthy gut flora (prebiotic), support the immune system & more. Anise seed is included for an irresistible flavor your horse will love, but it's also trusted for supporting digestion, eliminating gas, supporting a normal inflammatory response, helping balance blood sugar levels & more.
Available with Strawberry or our Essential Oil Trio: Copaiba EO, Peppermint EO & Frankincense EO for extra support of a normal inflammatory response (e.g., arthritis, creaky joints), immune system support & pain management support.
Properly managing the diet of a Cushing's or IR horse is critical. We suggest offering organic chia seeds, flaxseeds and coconut copra as prebiotic superfoods which help manage inflammation, support the gut microbiome, offer omega-3 fatty acids and lauric acid (respectively) & more. We recommend Hay Harmony to assist with metabolizing iron overload from hay and pasture. We also recommend Equinety pure amino acids as this unique blend targets the pituitary gland, encourages rapid hoof growth and helps the body heal itself on a cellular level. CBD Oil is also tremendously helpful during a flare up or when used preventatively to replenish the naturally occurring endocannabinoid system, helping to manage inflammation and pain. Probiotics have also been found in studies to help lower ACTH levels (see our Affiliates page, we suggest Sustenance Herbs probiotic blend for equines). Last but not least, organic kelp is an excellent source of non-radioactive iodine (safer alternative to EDDI) which assists with thyroid function, offers chlorophyll to cleanse the blood, alkalizes the body, provides vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients & more. Nettles is also helpful by increasing circulation, helping to manage inflammation and offering a wide range of naturally occurring nutrients.
