Adrenal System Support
Adrenal Support is a combination of whole food, tissue extracts and concentrates that provide multidimensional tissue support for the adrenal glands. This multidimensional support allows this product to have a broad range of applications in the patient. These applications range from the obvious of nutritionally supporting diseased adrenal glands to the less obvious of supporting the adrenal glands during times of increased metabolic need and stress. Increased metabolic need refers to situations such as when increased sympathetic tone is ongoing in patients with mitral insufficiency. In addition, patients receiving glucocorticoid therapy are clinically easier to manage and appear to have fewer negative side effects from the glucocorticoids. Nutritional management with a product of this type, means that this product can be used both for conditions of hyper-function and hypo-function. The adrenal gland is not stimulated or suppressed with this type of support. Rather, the focus is on normalizing the cell function. This normalization of cellular function fundamentally addresses this range of disorders. This is an important concept that significantly adds to the versatility of this product.
- Addison’s disease
- Adrenal insufficiency
- Respiratory disorders
- Cushing’s disease
- Immune insufficiency
The adrenal glands help the body adapt to stress through the release of corticosteroids and hormones. The adrenal glands can become fatigued due to chronic stress, either internal or external, and this can affect many body systems. The organs of the body all work together, and when one organ is stressed, others are affected. That’s why targeted nutrition that supports many organs can be so beneficial to your pet.
The ingredients in Standard Process Canine Adrenal Support feed several important organs such as the: adrenal glands, pituitary gland, thyroid gland, autonomic nervous system, liver, kidney, and small Intestine. Each ingredient in Canine Adrenal Support contains whole vitamin complexes in addition to other important phytonutrients and synergists.
Our practice may suggest the use of Canine Adrenal Support when your pet is showing signs of fatigue, reduced stamina, glucose intolerance, inflammatory response and inadequate immune system functioning.
