Adrenal Desiccated supports endocrine health. The adrenal glands are important in the body’s natural response to stress and energy metabolism.*
The goal of Adrenal Desiccated is to help maintain the adrenal gland's response to metabolic demand, normalize adrenal function, support the body's ability to handle stress, and to promote the adrenal gland's ability to rebuild and regenerate.
- Provides powerful short-term adrenal support for immediate energy needs
- Supports immune system function during times of increased demand*
- Can help manage and reduce the level of medications
- Large dog (>51 lbs ): 6 tablets daily
- Medium dog ( 21-50 lbs) : 4 tablets daily
- Small dog ( <20 lbs) : 2 tablets per day
- Supplements are best being split between 2 meals and given with food
HOW DOES ADRENAL DESICCATED SUPPORT ENDOCRINE FUNCTION?The use of glandular therapy, in which specific animal organ and gland tissues are ingested for the concentrated nutrients present in them, has a long history of use across a variety of cultures.1,2 The basic premise in glandular therapy is that glands from animals will have a positive effect on the same glands in humans. Bovine adrenal is combined with carrot powder in Adrenal Desiccated to provide concentrated nutrition for support of adrenal tissue and the endocrine system, which promotes healthy physiological functions throughout the body.3*
WHAT INGREDIENTS IN THIS PRODUCT HELP SUPPORT IMMUNE SYSTEM FUNCTION?The inclusion of bovine adrenal gland and carrot root provide glandular and nutritive support for the body as a whole, including the adrenal glands. Adrenal hormones like cortisol and norepinephrine play an important regulatory role in the immune system response function and management of stress. These hormones affect immune system cell activity and signals4and are in turn acted upon by the immune system.5*
