LABEL INFORMATION

 

#INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

Magnesium (Mg) is a vital macromineral, Helps to maintain normal muscle and nerve function, aids to regulate blood sugar levels and promotes normal blood pressure. Since a symptom of magnesium deficiency is agitation/anxiety, it is included in many calming supplements.

Chromium is a trace mineral which works with insulin to regulate blood sugar. By helping insulin work properly, it may be useful in managing the insulin resistance seen with Equine Metabolic Syndrome and in managing excitable horses on high grain diets that cause "tying up" due to stress. However, because PSSM horses display abnormal insulin sensitivity, chromium may not be recommended for horses with this particular muscle disorder.

#FAQS

Do you have any tips on how to get a picky metabolic syndrome horse to eat supplements?

MVP:  Find a low sugar “carrier” that your horse will eat and gradually mix in the supplement.  Some low sugar options are; commercial feed formulated for sugar-sensitive horses (NSC level of 10% or less), shredded beet pulp (no molasses), hay cubes broken into pieces (choose a hay cube that is 10% NSC or less) or alfalfa pellets. Only use a small amount of carrier ingredient (1 cup per feeding or less if a mini). Once your horse readily eats the carrier ingredient, add a small amount of supplement and mix well.  Over the next few days gradually increase the amount of supplement until you reach the full serving size.  Soaking the carrier with a small amount of water may make the supplement mix in better and harder to leave behind. Add the supplement right at feeding time, do not soak.

 

My gelding is on Senior-Flex, can I use this as well?

MVP: Thanks for your question. Senior-Flex and Anti-Carb are formulated to support different aspects of your horse’s health, and may be given together.

I would like to start my mare on a metabolic supplement, there are so many to pick from. What sets them apart, they seem similar?

MVP: In review – The most essential ingredient to feed an IR horse is a minimum of 5,000mg/5gm of Magnesium. Chromium and iodine are also very beneficial when the diet is lacking these nutrients.

Anti-Carb – Should be given to a horse that is already on a balanced vitamin/mineral supplement.

Carb-X – An herbal approach to treating IR, Contains good levels of magnesium and chromium along with herbals that may be beneficial.

D-Carb Balance – Provides the Vitamins/Minerals that are lacking in a low quality diet for IR horses.

Magnesium 5,000 – Should be given when an all-around vitamin/mineral supplement is lacking in high levels. This is the minimum someone should do with an IR horse and is great for those on a budget!

Consistantly and Successfully

I have been using Anti-Carb for my two Insulin Resistant horses consistently and successfully for years now. It really helps to keep their glycemic index regular. No more episodes with laminitis while on this product and diet is super strict.
