Welcome!
         
           Yucc’ It Up! nuggets were formulated for today’s horses who endure varying woes as a result of living in an imperfect world.  The ingredients in our unique proprietary blends were carefully selected to support the body in repairing itself on a cellular level.  We chose a concentrated, purified form of the yucca schidigera herb with extremely high bio-availability and coupled it with complimentary certified organic superfoods, medicinal spices, herbs and high quality therapeutic grade essential oils (unadulterated, free of synthetics, entirely pure, GC/MS tested by third party experts).  Together, all of these ingredients work to create a synergy which gently detoxes the body, supports a normal inflammatory response and encourages the body to thrive and function optimally.  Yucc’ It Up! nuggets make supplementing fun and easy as your horse thinks they’re just getting their new favorite treat!
   ​​ Every Ingredient Matters

Original Formula*

          Our Original formula includes 3 active ingredients which support a normal inflammatory response and is intended for horses with an average need for anti-inflammatory assistance or pain management.  It’s a great choice for those who want to proactively support their horse’s overall wellbeing and performance.  It’s also ideal for horses with skin conditions, mild anxiety or general stiffness.  Original formula tends to be a favorite amongst picky eaters; with carrots, oats & a touch of molasses appealing to their taste buds... nothing too crazy.  Molasses is a healthy alternative to refined sugar as it has a moderate glycemic index and assists in slowing the metabolism of glucose and carbohydrates, which ultimately means less insulin production.  Molasses' dense nutritional content includes high levels of minerals and vitamins which can positively affect a number of processes in the body.  It also contains antioxidants which protect against oxidative damage.

Advanced Formula

          Our Advanced formula includes 5 active ingredients which support a normal inflammatory response and is intended for horses with an average to above average need for anti-inflammatory assistance or pain management.  Peppermint essential oil and ceylon cinnamon are added to further support a normal inflammatory response, encourage circulation, support balanced blood sugar, assist with pain management, provide a calming effect & much more.  Several of the ingredients in this formula contribute to the reduction of anxiety (anxiety is often due to inflammation in the brain, so increasing blood flow to the brain and reducing inflammation in the brain are key for reducing anxiety) and activate neuro-protective proteins which promote brain health.  Ceylon cinnamon can stop cells from morphing, mutating and self-destructing; protecting against DNA damage.  Peppermint essential oil helps to restore balance within the body, improves mental clarity, uplifts mood, has antihistamine properties and is an excellent pain reliever.  Regarding flavor of the Advanced formula, we’ve chosen shredded coconut (a natural anti-parasitic) instead of carrot (as found in Original) and coconut sugar instead of molasses, in order to best compliment the peppermint and cinnamon tastes.  Coconut sugar has 16 amino acids which are needed for cell growth and repair, metabolism function and the production of hormones and enzymes.  Coconut sugar is also a source of trace minerals and B complex vitamins, in addition to being a low glycemic form of sugar.  Though we do not recommend Advanced formula for horses with ulcers (peppermint oil can be aggrivating to raw, open tissue), Advanced is beneficial for horses suffering from IBS.  The peppermint oil, yucca herb, ceylon cinnamon and coconut oil work beautifully together to improve overall digestion.

Competition Ready Formula*
          Our Competition Ready formula features the same blend as the Advanced formula, minus ceylon cinnamon as cinnamon is not USEF compliant.  Competition Ready is safe for riders whose horses are subjected to drug testing, as all ingredients are permitted under the Therapeutic Substance Provision of US Equestrian’s Equine Drugs and Medications Rule as of 1/16/18.

​*USEF Compliant:  All ingredients are permitted under the Therapeutic Substance Provision of US Equestrian's Equine Drugs and Medications Rule as of 1/16/18.

Elite Formula
          Our Elite formula is worth getting very excited about.  With 7 active ingredients which support a normal inflammatory response, pain management, neurological function and anti-cancer components, it is the crème de la crème of our Yucc’ It Up! formulas.  The Elite formula mirrors the ingredients of the Advanced formula, but it’s proprietary blend additionally boasts Frankincense essential oil and Copaiba essential oil.  Many of the ingredients used in all of our Yucc’ It Up! formulas are anti-cancer and support cellular health, but Frankincense is especially promising for shrinking tumors and lipomas. It can selectively kill off cancer cells and repair damaged but otherwise healthy cells.  Frankincense has additional benefits such as anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-parasitic, calming, boosts the immune system, helps the body to better absorb nutrients, strengthens the intestinal wall, eliminates gas, helps expel toxins, benefits all operating systems within the body (respiratory, digestive, nervous, excretory) and is very promising for brain health.  Copaiba essential oil has recently become the center of much hype and for good reason.  Alongside the yucca schidigera herb, Copaiba is considered to be one of the best natural anti-inflammatory substances.  It’s also anti-microbial, analgesic, anti-depressant, boosts immune system, supports healthy digestion & urinary health, is healing to the skin, stimulates mental focus and works on the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the brain similar to how CBD (Cannabinoid) oil works.  This last point is particularly attractive for anyone with horses suffering from neurological conditions or anxiety.  Copaiba also acts as a magnifier oil; meaning, when it’s used in conjunction with other oils, it magnifies the effects of those oils. In summary, our Elite formula is a powerhouse supplement for supporting a normal inflammatory response, cellular health and neurological well being amongst many other exciting benefits.  Elite is a good choice for overly anxious horses.

Cushing's / IR / Mood Support formula
​          Our Cushing's / IR / Mood Support formula contains Yucca Schidigera and Chaste Tree Berry herbs to support normal pituitary function, endocrine system function, naturally balance progesterone and estrogen levels and blood sugar.  It contains 4 active ingredients to support a normal inflammatory response.  The chaste tree berry herb reads the individual body's hormonal scape via the hypothalamus and acts accordingly to bring balance.  Chaste tree berry also has been shown to have a stimulating effect on dopaminergic neurons, which is important for horses with Cushing's because this disease is caused by a loss of the dopaminergic neurons of the hypothalamus.  Overall, this formula is excellent for horses with Cushings, Pre-Cushings, Hypothyroidism, Endocrine Syndrome, Insulin Resistance, moody mares, stallions or aggressive horses. 

          Regarding horses with Cushing's Disease, it can take 3-6 months to see results and for ACTH levels to drop, though some see results within the first month.  If your horse is on medication such as pergolide mesylate, to control their Cushing's Disease, it is our recommendation to feed Yucc' It Up! Cushing's / IR / Mood Support formula in conjunction with this medicine for the first 3-6 months and work with your veterinarian on a plan to slowly decrease the pergolide, should you choose to do so.  

Gastric Support Formula - NEW!
          Our Gastric Support formula is intended for horses who suffer from gastric or duodenal ulcers and other digestive challenges.  It includes yucca schidigera, slippery elm, marshmallow root, ceylon cinnamon, coconut oil and frankincense essential oil which all play a role in supporting the digestive tract, gastric tissue and function, and optimal nutrient absorption.  Slippery Elm is a rich source of mucilage which reduces inflammation and soothes indigestion.  This herb can also heal tissues, gently detoxify the body, eliminate infections and increase blood flow.  Slippery Elm has been used for thousands of years as a gastrointestinal cleanser and to bulk up stools, eliminating diarrhea.  Marshmallow Root has similar effects as Slippery Elm, it forms a protective layer on the gastrointestinal tract and stomach with it's mucilage content and soaks up excess stomach acids that irritate ulcerations.  It also regulates bacteria within the intestines.  Ceylon Cinnamon is a leading prebiotic and is a powerful disinfectant which also rids the body of bad bacteria.  It's full of antioxidants, additionally protecting the body from free radicals and oxidative stress.  Cinnamon can reduce insulin resistance and help balance blood sugar levels.  It's anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and protects cellular health by halting cells from morphing, mutating and self-destructing; therefore protecting against DNA damage.  Frankincense essential oil helps the body to better absorb nutrients, strengthens the intestinal wall, eliminates gas, can repair damaged cells, boosts the immune system, helps expel toxins, is calming, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-parasitic and benefits all operating systems within the body (respiratory, digestive, nervous, excretory).  Coconut oil, which is in all of our formulas, has a seemingly endless list of health benefits.  It contains lauric acid, capric acid, caprylic acid and antimicrobial lipids which are known for their antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties.  It boosts the immune system and fights inflammation.  It's healing to damaged tissues and to organs such as the liver, kidneys, heart and pancreas.  It promotes gut health, nutrient absorption, increases the metabolism, improves digestion and regenerates cells.  It contributes to balancing blood sugar and hormones, supports neurological function and memory, supports thyroid function and helps to fight off bacterial infections & viruses.  Whew!  That was alot.  And to think there are even more benefits to these ingredients than we mentioned above. 
         
          The hope with Gastric Support is that your horse may only need it temporarily (approximately 12-18 weeks) to support their gut in stabilizing itself.  However, every horse has unique needs and some will require more time than others.  Our suggestion is to move them onto Original formula Yucc' It Up! once they've completed 12-18 weeks of Gastric Support and watch their response.   

Warning:  Gastric Support is not recommended for use in pregnant mares, as slippery elm and marshmallow root can have a stimulant effect which could induce premature labor or complicate pregnancy.
