Herbsmith Athlete - Powder
Herbsmith Athlete supports the athletic nature of the dog and may combat fatigue from competition or daily training in the canine athlete.
Like any athlete, time and stress take a toll on the body of the active dog. The depletion of the dog’s natural level of fluids may lead to fatigue, lethargy and decreased performance.
Herbsmith Athlete is a combination of herbs used to balance the high energy, athletic dog. Rather than providing a short-lived boost of enthusiasm, Herbsmith Athlete functions by maintaining the fluids of the body and allowing the dog to attain peak performance. Herbsmith Athlete makes the dog as balanced as possible allowing the canine athlete to perform to the fullest.
By nature the athletic dog is yang, which is exhibited as active, outward or energetic behavior with high levels of running and movement. This excess of yang can burn off the body’s yin, or fluids. Herbsmith Athlete is a yin tonic that nourishes the blood and balances the dog’s level of yin and yang. The herbs in Herbsmith Athlete have blood-moving properties that ease discomfort caused by training and competition.
