There are many conditions that lead to nerve damage in older dogs and the process of aging can make life difficult. Conditions like degenerative myelopathy do damage to the spinal cord, beginning with a loss of coordination in the hind limbs. These conditions eventually make it difficult if not impossible for dogs to walk, with other symptoms like fecal and urinary incontinence progressing as myelopathy takes hold.
Nerve tonic eases the progression of these conditions thanks to its blend of herbal ingredients. These ingredients work together to produce results, preventing inflammatory damage to the brain and inhibiting further nerve injury.
Nerve Tonic Beneficial Ingredients:
Among the ingredients of this nerve tonic, St. John’s Wort may be the most well-known. This herb contains neuroprotective agents that shield the brain and nervous system from further damage and degenerative conditioning. It also prevents oxidative damage to the brain and guards against inflammation. This nerve tonic uses the whole extract of St. John’s Wort.
Cayenne, also known as capsicum annuum, is another beneficial ingredient. This promotes circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients through the bloodstream. This ensures that nutrients get where they need to go in the brain and extremities, increasing body heat and overall vitality. It also lowers cholesterol and blood pressure and aids in the prevention of blood clots.
Because this formula contains USDA certified organic herbal ingredients, there are higher concentrations of vital nutrients. And thanks to the usage of specialized organic farming techniques, the entire process is monitored to ensure that no residual pesticides make their way into the product. Wildcrafted herbs are not used either, as this can lead to the decimation of wild herbal populations.
Other ingredients include:
- Ginkgo leaf
- Ginger root
- Skullcap herb
- Gotu kola
The complement of these ingredients, presented in a 1:5 concentration of all-natural herbs to the menstruum, is bound by organic vegetable glycerin and distilled water for a tonifying effect.
This product is blended using a special process with low heat. The organic vegetable glycerin provides a sweet taste animals enjoy. While it is a carbohydrate, the glycerin used in this formula is metabolized differently than sugar and does not lead to elevated blood sugar levels. The low heat process allows for the metabolization of more product constituents.
This herbal tonic uses only human-grade ingredients.
Nerve Tonic Dosage Instructions:
Nerve tonic should be administered two to three times per day for acute cases, but the dosage can be adjusted depending on the needs of the animal. For long-term usage, the dosage can be adjusted appropriately on a two-to-four week cycle. Cycle five days on and two days off as the animal’s condition stabilizes and improvement is documented.
Dosage may be squirted directly into the pet’s mouth, added to meals or supplied with foods like yogurt. Shake well before using. Dosages do not have to be exact, as this is not a medication. This nerve tonic should be administered using the pet’s weight as a guide, as follows:
