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.

DOGS (and CATS!) LOVE MACA MEAL TOPPER is also a fun way to treat your pets, as it can be added to the diet or to recipes, to add a nutritional boost to your meals or treats.  

Maca is a highly nutritious super food, containing antioxidants, adaptogens, alkaloids, protein, vitamins, minerals, all essential and non-essential amino acids, natural hormonal precursors, primary nutritional metabolites and secondary metabolites (which build your pet's natural defense system).

Maca is bio-available water and fat soluable, 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 has been studied for its adaptogen and alkaloid content which help nourish HPA glandular function (Hypothalamus, Pituitary and Adrenal) particularly for its potential effect to help stimulate, nourish and rebuild glandular tissue, including the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, which are the master glands. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands help regulate proper hormonal response in all other glands in the body, including producing and maintaining hormones, which are required for every cell, tissue, organs and body system to operate properly. 


Maca has also been studied for its potential nutritional support for Canine Cognitive Dysfunction, as it may help limit micro-inflammation and plaque buildup in the brain and can safely cross the blood/brain barrier to help nourish and balance the neurological and endocrine link. 

Maca is tonic in nature, giving an additional level of support to its adaptogen content, helping tone and strengthen all body systems toward balanced and optimal wellness, particularly as it relates to building and maintaining energy, focus, mood, and the ability to handle stress. According to recent PubMed studies, Maca may have a beneficial effect on your dog's innate endocannabinoid system.  

Studies have determined that Maca signals the Endocannabinoid System based on its own natural plant chemistry, and when combined with CBD oil, may potentiate the effects to be derived from Maca and CBD to help deliver greater layered health benefits.

Maca may also be an important adjunctive, holistic support for some types of cancer, due to the presence of plant chemicals called isothiocyanates (ITCs), which induce cell apoptosis (cell death) related to cancer cell lines.
