Should I give METABOLIC CARE to my horse or pony?
METABOLIC CARE is a good choice to support horses
- who eat a lot of sugars (grain & fresh grass);
- during periods when the fructan levels in the grass are high
- with a tendency for overweight;
- with warm feet and hooves;
- in their senior years (16+); and
- during hormone imbalances such as equine Cushing’s disease (PPID) and equine metabolic syndrome (EMS).
The safety of this product has not been tested in pregnant and lactating animals. The use during pregnancy and lactation is therefore not recommended.
How does METABOLIC CARE work?
A well-functioning metabolism is of great importance for the general health of your horse. The liver clears the blood of fat and waste products, while the pancreas regulates blood sugar levels.
Hoof health can also be seriously affected by an unbalanced metabolism, leading to laminitis.
SUGAR- AND FAT METABOLISM
Chlorella and Berberis vulgaris balance the sugar- and fat metabolism in the body (6,7,8).
Chrysanthellum americanum, L-arginine and Pinus maritima promote blood flow in the feet of horses and ponies, which keeps them healthy (1,2,3).
Sulfur is the most common mineral in horses’ hooves. MSM is a naturally occurring organic molecule and is very rich in sulfur(4). Horsetail powder strengthens the laminae in the hoof by supporting the production of collagen (5).
MSM and Silybum marianum also support the natural defence and promote detoxification (detox) of the body (4,5).
Licorice and prebiotics support the stomach and gut health.
