Adrenal Calm is a remarkable formula for hyperadrenal imbalances in dogs and cats, often referred to as Cushing's Disease. This imbalance requires adrenal gland production of stress hormones to be reduced. Developed by a certified Master Herbalist, Adrenal Calm works on the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis to relieve the uncomfortable and potentially life-threatening symptoms of Cushing's Disease.
Cushing's Disease results from an excess of adrenal gland hormones. It is a common side-effect of drugs such as corticosteroids, which are often prescribed to treat osteoarthritis, allergies and other ailments in our dogs and cats. Cushing's Disease can also result from a usually benign tumor on one of the adrenal glands or the pituitary gland. Our formula contains organic herbs that help relieve symptoms of Cushings and bring the body back into balance by helping to:
Compare our formula to other similar products and you will notice that our product is up to half the price of other products while we use organic vegetable glycerin and no undesirable additives like Bacon Flavor!

What to Look for in a Superior Cushings Formula:
✓ Organic Herbs
Our formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or how they've been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.
✓ Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medicine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not really meant to.
✓ Alcohol-Free Tincture with ORGANIC Vegetable Glycerin for Animals
Our blend is formulated by a special process using low heat and organic vegetable glycerin. Tinctures are concentrated forms of a plant's constituents that are readily absorbed and utilized by your pet's body. Because your pet may not like the taste of alcohol, we use vegetable glycerin which gives our tinctures a sweet taste your animals will like. Vegetable glycerin is a carbohydrate but is metabolized differently than sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels. It is also an efficient menstruum which extracts valuable constituents from plants and makes them readily available to the body. In addition, we take the extra time and effort to use a low heat process that extracts many more constituents than just soaking in glycerin alone as is done by most other herbal companies. And, of course, the use of organic vegetable glycerin ensures your pet avoids genetically modified ingredients and herbicides in their natural medicine.
✓ Uses only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.

About the Organic Herbs in This Formula
Eleuthero Root - Also called Siberian ginseng, this valuable plant is a superior adaptogenic herb with an impressive range of health benefits. For the purpose of this formula eleuthero offers resistance to underlying imbalances by helping the body adapt to stress which helps to lower elevated cortisol levels while providing powerful antioxidant effects.
Holy Basil Leaf - In India this herb is known as the “elixir of anti-aging". Studies suggest that holy basil helps an animal fight fatigue and stress; boosts the immune system; and regulates blood sugar, blood pressure and hormone levels.
Ashwagandha Root - Often referred to as Indian ginseng while used in Ayurvedic medicine, ashwagandha has been used in Eastern medicine for over 2,500 years and has immune-modulating effects that support the immune system and aid the body in lowering cortisol levels.
Astragalus Root - A favorite adaptogen of ours for some time, astragalus has been used in Chinese medicine to boost immunity and buffer the effects of stress. Astragalus increases the amount of anti-stress compounds an animal's body uses to repair and prevent stress-related damage. It may also reduce the ability of stress hormones like cortisol to bind to receptors.
Rhodiola Root - This herb is a potent adaptogen that has been the focus of much research. Rhodiola provides a buffer to stress-related mental and physical fatigue.
Chaste Tree Berry - Acts as an amphoteric herb which means that it will help balance fluctuating hormone levels. It does this by providing a gentle, tonic action on the anterior pituitary that supports this glands action in adrenal hormone regulation.
Burdock Root - Since the liver plays an important role in helping to remove excess circulating hormones and metabolic waste products, an alterative, or blood purifier, like burdock plays an important role in this formula. Burdock helps cleanse the blood and assists the liver in eliminating systemic waste thereby strengthening the action of this very important organ.
Provide 1 ml per 25 lbs 2 - 3 times per day. May be squirted directly in the mouth, placed in a small amount of favorite food (goat milk yogurt works well) or added to meals. It is desirable to provide herbal remedies such as this away from meals for better absorption when possible.
You may safely use up to 4 mls per 25 lbs 2 - 3 times daily for a short period of time depending on the severity of your animal's condition. As your animal's condition improves slowly decrease dosage to minimum effective dosage. Contact us if you have any questions.
To apply directly in mouth just pull out lower lip at back of mouth and squirt in desired amount. Don't tilt head back and squirt down throat or your pet may breath some in. Wipe off dropper before placing back in container. If your animal coughs afterwards it is a sign they are breathing some in and it may be best to place in food in the future.
