What are Cushex Drops-S?

Cushex Drops can make all the difference to adrenal health, without the risk of serious side effects.
Like humans, all pets are exposed to a fair amount of daily stress, which eventually taxes the system. Excited “good” stress, such as over a trip to the beach or reacting to guests in the house, has the same cumulative effect on the body as “bad” stress, such as going to the vet or kennel, and can lead to a buildup of cortisol.
As a result, your pet may begin to experience increased appetite, the most noticeable effect of long-term exposure to cortisol, and frequently beg, become possessive of his food, or get into the garbage. You may also notice increased thirst and water consumption in your pet, which leads to more frequent urination and often accidents inside.Hair loss and thinning, especially around the elbows, flank and abdomen, may also result after extended cortisol exposure.
To ensure the safety of Cushex Drops-S and provide the highest quality, most effective product, we use only Premium Whole Herb manufacturing. This process excludes the use of any chemical solvents during extraction and maintains the balance of the whole herb to give you the very best possible safety, quality and efficacy. This is unlike other products that use standardized extracts, exposing the ingredients to harsh chemical solvents and removing the supporting metabolites from the plant.
Cushex Drops-S contains a unique and scientifically chosen selection of herbs known for their beneficial effects on promoting balance in the endocrine system, specifically the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis, thereby supporting many functions of the body. It can be used to help the body naturally mitigate the effects of long-term exposure to high levels of cortisol, supporting healthy energy, skin and coat, digestive health, and more. Because of this, it can be used to help the body naturally avoid long-term exposure to high levels of cortisol, supporting healthy energy, skin and coat, digestive health, and more.
One of those ingredients, Dandelion, is well known not only for supporting normal adrenal functioning, but also for the vitamins and minerals it contains that are important for hair health and growth, and as a powerful antioxidant.
Our Cushex Drops-S formulation also includes Astragalus, an herb which has been used for many centuries as a revitalizing herb. Astragalus is known as an adaptogen and helps to support balance in the adrenal glands. It helps to maintain healthy adrenal cortical function and is important for supporting blood pressure and blood sugar levels already within the normal range. . Together with Burdock, a cleansing and eliminating herb excellent at supporting waste removal from the body, along with Licorice, used to help with cortisol levels, Cushex Drops works to provide a therapeutic blend of herbs for ultimate efficacy.
Cushex Drops-S is easy to administer, and the serving can be adjusted to suit pets of all sizes. Herbal Cushex Drops-S is also a great complementary remedy to Cushex Drops-M™, a homeopathic medicine to help symptoms of adrenal & pituitary gland imbalance in dogs. These symptoms include excessive thirst and urination, stomach upset, nausea, indigestion, heartburn and vomiting, and skin problems like dry, itching skin.
The formula remains true to the full spectrum method of herbal extraction, ensuring the bioavailability and balance of all the active ingredients contained in the remedy. Unlike standardized extracts, which expose the ingredients to harsh chemical solvents and remove the supporting metabolites from the plants, this manufacturing method significantly reduces the likelihood of side effects and ensures that all active ingredients are in perfect balance.

Adrenal gland health
The adrenal glands are two small, triangular-shaped endocrine glands located on top of the kidneys. They are orange in color and covered in a connective tissue capsule that is hidden in a layer of fat. These glands are made up of two parts – the adrenal cortex (outside) and the adrenal medulla (inside). The adrenal glands work together with the pituitary gland and hypothalamus in the brain for the overall health and functioning of your dog.
The process commences when the hypothalamus produces corticotrophin hormones which stimulate the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland, in turn also produces ACTH (Adrenocortico-trophic hormone) which then stimulates the adrenal glands to produce corticosteroid hormones.
These hormones are key components for your dog’s health and vitality – they are responsible for the functioning of every tissue, organ and gland in the body. Adrenal glands maintain metabolic processes by managing blood sugar levels, regulating inflammation as well the balance of salt and water, and controlling the “fight or flight” response to stress.
Excessive cortisol levels can be related to prolonged use of corticosteroids, or as a result of extended ‘fight or flight’ hormones. Maintaining adrenal balance is therefore key to promoting health in your furry friends.
