The Ultimate Metabolic Health Supplement
- Promotes a healthy endocrine system
- Maintains an even temperament
- Supports balanced hormone levels
Harmony is formulated to promote healthy body function in horses dealing with the negative side effects associated with equine metabolic syndrome (EMS) and pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID), more commonly known as Cushing’s disease. To learn more about the symptoms, causes and treatments for these health issues, visit the in-depth article the Health Library.
Harmony is a powerful all-natural supplement designed to promote a healthy metabolism and endocrine system. These active ingredients combine many key nutraceuticals which help maintain normal blood sugar and hormone levels. It is recommended when Chaste Tree Berry Powder alone does not achieve sufficient results.
L-Tyrosine and L-Tryptophan are essential amino acids used by the body to help stimulate serotonin in the brain. It is the “feel good” hormone the body produces naturally to help improve mood.
Chaste Tree Berry Powder nutritionally supports the normal functioning of the pituitary and adrenal glands. It helps maintain normal dopamine levels in the blood. Accurate dopamine levels normalize prolactin to balance hormones in the body.
Cinnamon powder is commonly used to assist in stabilizing blood sugar and lowering insulin levels to ensure a normal metabolism. Cushing’s Syndrome is commonly associated with abnormally high levels of blood sugar.
Wild Yam Root Powder is included to encourage normal progesterone levels in the blood stream, which can be decimated by any of the endocrine disorders. Progesterone is the normalizing hormone that balances blood sugar, keeps horses from showing signs of irritability/aggression and stabilizes heat cycles.
The prebiotic, Zorien MOS, is included to allow increased absorption of needed nutrients from food. It will help promote overall digestive health and assist in reducing the negative side effects of gastric upset.
Magnesium is one of the electrolytes needed for muscle function and is also considered a calming mineral by veterinarians. Chromium helps to move blood sugar from the bloodstream into the cells to be used as energy and to turn fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy.
While Brewer’s Yeast is not considered an active ingredient, it is high in all of the B vitamins, which are associated with cellular energy, blood sugar regulation and balancing cortisol levels.
If you do not see significant improvement after one bucket of Harmony, Dr. DePaolo recommends the Horse Hair Analysis (HHA) program. Over 2,000 horses with endocrine disorders and behavioral issues have been tested with HHA. At least 45% of those horses tested toxic in one or more heavy metal (such as lead or arsenic), that must be chelated from the body in order for it regain health. For more information, view the Horse Hair Analysis section.Proper diet has an immense effect on maintaining a healthy endocrine system.
