If you are wondering what else you can do to help support your Dog's Cushings Disease, you should try our Lignan and Melatonin Combo. Studies show that both should be given together for even more support.
Not all plant foods with antioxidants are safe for dogs to ingest, making Prana Pets HMR Lignans a unique product. They are natural, safe, and easy to measure and administer. HMR Lignans contain a potent antioxidant that helps alleviate hormonal imbalances in the body—the problem at the core of Cushing’s disease.
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland that helps regulate your dogs overall balance. Melatonin for Dogs is used in holistic and veterinary medicine along with Lignans as a natural treatment for Cushing's disease. Studies show reduced cortisol in dogs when given as a combination. It's also effective in helping with the loss of hair and skin irritations.
The Melatonin and Lignans Combo can be given safely with Cushings Killer Combo.
“My Beagle has had Cushing's for the last 3 months...hungry constantly, thirsty constantly...needs to go out in the middle of the night every night even when we restrict her water after 7PM. I started her on two caps a day last week 1 at lunch and 1 at dinner mixed in her food...I didn't want to hope too much but we have had three straight nights of sleeping all night and not needing to go until we get up...hunger is less and some of the thirst has abated. She seems calmer also...less panting and excitability than before. I definitely see an improvement and am really happy to be giving her something natural.”- Adam M / Verified Buyer
“I'm so glad to have found Lignans for dogs. my little dog is 13 years old and she has Cushing's. We're going for quality of life and she seems to be holding her own. I give her one capsule a day sprinkled over her food and she eats it with her breakfast with no problem. We are watching her closely and so far feel this was the right way to go. I would advise anyone to do this as opposed to the traditional treatment that could make their dog sick. She has not demonstrated a problem so far and she seems to be getting along well.”- Lesley R / Verified Buyer
If you are wondering what else you can do to help support your Dog's Cushings Disease, you should try our HMR Lignans. Prana Pets HMR Lignans are a powerful complement to the Cushing’s Killer Combo. HMR Lignans contain a potent antioxidant that helps alleviate hormonal imbalances in the body—the problem at the core of Cushing’s disease.

Lignans are natural compounds from plant material that help ease cortisol hormone levels in the body. When ingested, Lignans become enterolignans, which may reduce the circulation of cortisol in the blood.
Their unique anti-inflammatory properties limit the need for cortisol to produce. They also correct the overproduction of estrogen by encouraging a weaker form of estrogen to release instead. In addition, Lignans help prevent testosterone excess by inhibiting the production of DHT, a highly potent form of testosterone.
Lignans achieve this by cutting off the enzymes involved in creating DHT, adjusting the right level of acceptable testosterone in the process. Studies show Lignans to improve hair growth, one of the indicators of Cushing’s disease in dogs.
Lignans are converted in the body into the mammalian lignans (enterolignans) enterodiol and enterolactone. Enterolignans have been shown to be potent antioxidants. They reduce the free radicals that otherwise damage tissues, membrane lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins, and may lead to diseases or premature aging. Enterolignans also stimulate the synthesis of sex hormone binding globulin, effectively binding sex hormones and thereby reducing their circulation in the blood stream and thus their biological activity.
There are numerous studies that indicate improved health from hormone balance, such as reduced rates of menopausal symptoms and maintaining prostate health. Some studies have indicated improved hair growth.
"My old dog has cushings disease and prior to using this product she would shake constantly. Now....no shaking and a lot more active and content. I will never not have this product!"- Carmen T / Verified Buyer
“I purchased Lignans for Dogs for my 12 year old miniature Poodle, who had been diagnosed with atypical Cushings disease. It worked fine for his lower digestive tract but unfortunately he developed diabetes and we lost him several months later. We are also using the Adrenal Support for dogs. I am now giving it to my 3 year old Maltese. Hopefully it will give her some protection against Cushings.”- Brian F / Verified Buyer
