I AM A Rock Star - Memory, Gland (Hypothalmic, Pituitary and Adrenal) & Vitality Support*
Memory, Gland (Hypothalmic, Pituitary and Adrenal) and Energy Support* (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)
I AM A Rock Star! contains maca, which has has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a super food and a well-studied adaptogenic herb, due to its amazing array of over 55 healthy plant chemicals and nutritional profile, an impressive array of supportive organic whole foods and antioxidants, plus 9 amino acids!, first class adaptogens and plant botanicals, alkaloids, amino acids, fatty acids (linoleic and oleic acid), enzymes, isothiocyanates, bio-available protein, glucosinolates, minerals (critical macro and micro minerals), including iron, magnesium, calcium, copper, iodine, iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, saponins, tannins; a variety of sterols (including sitosterol, campestrol, ergosterol, brassicasterol and ergostadienol) plus vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin D3 and vitamin E and critical nutrients like tryptophan, often missing in the canine diet, plus much more!
I AM A Rock Star! is used holistically for its natural plant chemical content that can help improve your pet's resistance to metabolic, oxidative, physiological, biochemical, physical, emotional, environmental, immune, central nervous and neurological stress and dysfunction, due in part, to its alkaloid and amino acid content which may help nutritionally support the endocrine system.
Maca has been studied for its ability to help stimulate and nourish the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, which are the master glands in the animal body. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands regulate all other glands, including producing and maintaining hormones, which are required for every body system to operate properly. This process becomes more critical in cases of metabolic disorders such as Cushing's disease, Addison's disease and diabetes. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)
An adaptogen is a highly specialized plant that is naturally coded with a read, repair and restore function. The maca plant works intrinsically and synergistically to help read and repair glandular, metabolic and oxidative dysfunction, but may also nutritionally help restore balance in the animal body. Reducing metabolic stress in our dogs and cats is important because it disrupts nutrient assimilation, undermines immunity and opens up susceptibility to metabolic diseases, including diabetes, Cushing's, Addison's and other metabolic conditions.
I AM A Rock Star! may help nutritionally support healthy hypothalamic-pituitary adrenal (HPA) function, helping to support the gland's ability to rebuild and regenerate, and may help promote healthy adrenal, parotid, pituitary, pineal and thyroid gland function when dysfunction is present.
I AM A Rock Star! is used by holistic veterinarians in the traditional treatment of Cushing's disease (also called hyperadrenocorticism) and Addison's disease (also called chronic adrenal insufficiency, hypocortisolism and hypoadrenalism) due to its adaptogenic plant chemistry to support and repair irregularities in glandular function while helping to manage symptoms of thirst and urination, rash, scabs, flaking skin, hair loss and panting; helps encourage strong skin and healthy coat and may counteract coat loss common to Cushing's and Addison's; may help support electrolyte balance and reduce infection susceptibility, which are common with Cushing's and Addison's disease; and may help to improve pancreatic function, reduce insulin fluctuation and hypoglycemia, which is critically important in cases of diabetes.
I AM A Rock Star! may help stimulate the hypothalamus and thyroid, useful in cases of hypothyroidism, fatigue or when energy and vitality are lacking, while also functioning as a mild yet balanced Central Nervous System stimulant.
Maca has also been qualified as a functional food due to its nutritive content which nourishes all body systems, including endocrine, nervous, cardiovascular, digestive, reproductive, circulatory and excretory systems; and may be an important disease preventative for your pet.
Maca may be useful for breeding situations as it may help to regulate the testes; may increase testosterone levels, may balance hormone levels to help promote healthy reproductive function, producing stronger, healthier litters in dogs and cats.
Secondary natural plant benefits include holistic use to help address and may alleviate symptoms related to arthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatism and Degenerative Joint Disease due to its alkaloid calcium content; may be used for tooth aches; hay fever; epilepsy; and as an antibacterial and antiviral for Helicobacter Pylori (H. Pylori) and E. coli.
