Cushing's Disease / Insulin Resistance Support​​
.
Formulated for horses with Cushing's disease, pre-Cushing's, hypothyroidism, endocrine syndrome, insulin resistance or metabolic disorders. Contains less than 1.5 grams of sugar per day from organic coconut sugar & stevia extract.
.
This blend contains chaste tree berry in the proprietary blend. Chaste tree berry reads the individual body's hormonal scape via the hypothalamus and acts accordingly to bring balance. It also has been shown to have 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. Also, insulin is an endocrine hormone; by naturally balancing hormones, insulin resistance subsides.
.
This formula is available with strawberry powder for increased palatability, additional nutrients and antioxidants or with our trio of essential oils (copaiba, frankincense & peppermint) for additional support normalizing inflammatory response, pain relief and immune function.
.
Regarding horses with Cushing's Disease, it can take 3-6 months to see results and for ACTH levels to drop, though some see results sooner.  If your horse is on medication such as pergolide, to control their Cushing's Disease, it is our recommendation to provide Cushing's / IR / Mood Support formula in conjunction with this medicine for the first 3-6 months and work with your veterinarian on a plan to slowly decrease the pergolide, should you choose to do so.​​
  
Gastric Support
.
Formulated for horses with ulcers, digestive disorders, acidosis, weak immune systems, allergies, or for any horse during stressful events, trailering or while on antibiotics. 
.
Gastric Support can be made USEF compliant; Please request a USEF compliant version of the formula in the notes section of your order.
.
We recommend offering your horse Gastric Support for 3 months or less and then transitioning to Original, Advanced or Elite formula. Gastric Support is intended to be used only temporarily due to licorice root and marshmallow root ingredients.
.
Warning:  Gastric Support is not recommended for use in pregnant mares, as slippery elm and marshmallow root can have a stimulant effect which could induce premature labor or complicate pregnancy.
