I Am A Rock Star - Memory, Gland (Hypothalamic, Pituitary And Adrenal) & Vitality Support*
I AM A ROCK STAR! contains maca, which has hasbeen recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a super food and awell-studied first class adaptogenic herb, due to its amazing array of over 55 healthy plant chemicals and one of the highest plant based nutritional profiles on earth!
I AM A ROCK STAR! contains an impressive array of supportive organic whole foods and antioxidants, plus all essential and non-essential amino acids, first class adaptogens and plant botanicals, alkaloids, 20 free fatty acids (linoleic and oleic acid), lysophosphatidic acids (LPA), digestive 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, (OS Fructooligosaccharides and critical nutrients like taurine and tryptophan, often missing in the canine diet, plus much more!
When combined, these nutrients may synergistically help build resistance to metabolic, oxidative, physiological, biochemical, physical, emotional, environmental, immune, Central Nervous and neurological stress and imbalance in your pet's body systems.
Used holistically for its natural plant chemical content to help nourish your pet's endocrine system, responsible for the production and maintenance of hormones charged with supporting every body system, including cells, tissues and organs.
I AM A ROCK STAR is used holistically to help deliver vital nutrition to organs which are charged with supporting endocrine support, specifically thyroid and hypothalamic-pituitary adrenal (HPA) function; to help nutritionally balance adrenal function when imbalance is present due to its adaptogenic plant actions; may help nutritionally nourish and help regenerate stressed or under performing glandular function; may help restore proper metabolic function, which is essential to all body systems and may help limit diseases caused by metabolic dysfunction such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular, Cushing's and Addison's disease due to its high antioxidant, free radical fighting, nutritional and adaptogen plant actions and plant profile.
Maca has a history of use for animals for over 3,000 years and has been widely researched for its nutritional and potential health benefits for dogs, cats and horses.
Journal of Veterinarian Medicine and Petfood Industry recognizes maca as functional food for dogs and cats
IAMA Rock Star! issued holistically for its natural plant chemical content that may 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 and fatty acid content which may help nutritionally support the endocrine system.
Maca has been studied for its adaptogen content and ability to help stimulate, nourish and rebuild glandular tissue, including the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, which are the master glands in the animal body. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands help regulate all other glands in the body, 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, hypercortisolism and hypoadrenalism) due to its adaptogenic plant chemistry to support and repair irregularities in glandular function and may also help manage symptoms of thirst and urination, rash, scabs, flaking skin, hair loss and panting; may help encourage strong skin and healthy coat and may help 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 may play an important role in helping to maintain cognitive health as it is one of a few plants that safely crosses the blood-brain barrier and may offer important neuro protective potential health benefits in that it may help remove amyloid plaque buildup in the brain, may help reduce neural inflammation in the brain, critical in the case of Alzheimer's and cognitive decline.
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 antioxidant disease preventative for your pet.
Maca has a history of use for animals for over 2,000 years and has been widely researched for its nutritional and potential health benefits for dogs, cats and horses.
Maca is bio-available water and fat soluble, meaning you cook, bake, serve it raw or sprinkle on your pet's diet and it can be fully assimilated. It's also safe for all life stage animals, including puppies, kittens to adult and senior dogs and cats. Another important nutritional component is that it may help support electrolyte balance, a critical need for immuno-compromised, convalescing or at-risk dogs and cats.
Maca may be useful for breeding situations (in adult dogs and cats not young dogs and cats) 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 glucosinolate and 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.
Emerging research on the role of the endogenous Endocannabinoid System (ECS) found within humans and animals, and its potential health impact, has expanded dramatically. Recently PubMed published articles linking compounds found in the Maca root with the ability to activate the Endocannabinoid System.
Maca contains natural plant compounds called N-alkylamides (NAAs) as well as macamides, that can signal and activate the Endocannabinoid System, long thought only possible by using the hemp plants.
