Prana Pets Lignans and Melatonin for Dogs Combo provides you with a natural solution to Cushing’s without the risk of side effects or adverse reactions.
Melatonin for Dogs with Cushing’s - A Powerful & Safe Ally
Without the use of Melatonin, the Lignans are not as effective in treating Cushing's. Melatonin is a natural hormone produced by the pineal gland that helps the body maintain hormonal balance. Properly administered, it’s gentle, effective and carries no risk of side effects. If you’ve studied Cushing’s, you know that it causes the dog’s body to produce excessive amounts of cortisol (a stress hormone). Studies conducted at the University of Tennessee confirmed that melatonin can help reduce excess cortisol levels and for this reason melatonin is an excellent option to help with adrenal issues like Cushing’s.
We have formulated the Lignans and Melatonin for Dogs Combo to have the precise amount of melatonin for maximum safety and therapeutic effect.
Lignans - A Natural Solution for Cushing’s Disease
Flaxseed is one of the world’s oldest cultivated crops, having been grown since the dawn of human civilization. The Latin name of the flaxseed plant is Linum usitatissimum, meaning “very useful.” In addition to food and fiber, flaxseeds also offer medicinal properties to dogs with Cushing’s. Like Melatonin, SDG Lignans extracted from flaxseed have been studied for their ability to help lower excessive cortisol levels. Research shows that combining flaxseed lignans with melatonin serves to lower cortisol levels, rendering this combination particularly useful for dogs with Cushing’s.
