Our Cushing's Support Herbal & Superfood Blend is designed to support the immune system from several angles, including the endocrine system, nervous system, immune function, pituitary function & balancing of hormones (including ACTH / cortisol & insulin. Insulin is an endocrine hormone; so by naturally balancing hormones, insulin resistance can subside).
This blend includes chaste tree berry 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.
