LABEL INFORMATION

 

#INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

Magnesium (Mg) is a vital macromineral, and it is becoming increasingly recommended by veterinarians for various treatments in the horse. Because one of the clinical signs of magnesium deficiency is nervousness, it is added to many calming supplements. Magnesium helps protect against inflammation and free radical damage. Magnesium may play a role in insulin resistance and equine metabolic syndrome. Within the muscle calcium and magnesium work antagonistically; calcium causing muscle contraction and magnesium inducing relaxation. If there is not enough magnesium, muscles tend to spasm.

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.

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.
