Equine America has launched a new natural food supplement, “Cushins“, that the company claims “assists ponies and older horses in retaining or restoring natural hormone level”.
The supplement, which contains the herb Chaste Berry, aims to help with symptoms of Cushing’s and the hormonal production that affects blood balance, muscle and nerve condition and the immune system.
Cushing’s disease is usually caused by an abnormal enlargement of the pituitary gland at the base of the brain that controls the nervous system and produces hormones. In Cushing’s disease, an excess of these hormones are produced, confusing the rest of the body, particularly the adrenal glands.
The company says it “enables a more healthy life, particularly if the horse of pony is prone to laminitis”.
The supplement is available in 908gm — RRP is £29.99. For more information visit www.equine-america.co.uk or call 01403 244809.
