Glycocemic EQ provides nutrients that are compatible with a wide variety of diets to support blood insulin levels within normal ranges.  Targeted ingredients also promote balanced immune and thyroid function, glucose metabolism, healthy nerve function, and insulin sensitivity.

"There are no magic bullets and no short cuts with insulin resistance.  First, it’s important to understand that Insulin Resistance (IR) is not a disease - it is a "metabolic type," referred to as Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) that is almost certainly genetic, and can ultimately contribute to laminitis. The goal is to get blood work as close to normal as possible, if not completely normal.

The core of the most effective approach to EMS, or IR, is as much exercise as the horse can tolerate with a diet that limits the load of glucose, maximizes the supply of fermentable fiber sources for energy, and provides supplemental nutrients to assist the cells’ insulin sensitivity.  This means feeding beet pulp, distillers' grains and soy hulls with hay for a combined total of less than 10% sugars and starch.

Glycocemic EQ provides ingredients to support healthy, normal insulin levels by providing nutrient levels that are compatible with a wide variety of diets and sources of hay.  It can be used as a starting supplement, and individual mineral levels can be tweaked when diet analysis is available.  Mineral functions include:

  • Antioxidant activity and healthy, normal insulin sensitivity are supported by Zinc.
  • Antioxidant support for healthy, balanced immune and thyroid function are provided by Selenium.
  • Healthy thyroid function is maintained by Iodine.
  • Healthy, normal insulin sensitivity is supported and maintained by Chromium.
  • Normal, healthy cellular insulin receptor numbers and energy storage are supported by Magnesium.
  • Energy storage molecules of Phosphocreatine and ATP are supported by Phosphorus.
  • Antioxidant properties are provided by Copper.

In addition, energy pathways are supported by Thiamine and Pyridoxine.  Acetyl-L-Carnitine  provides antioxidant support and helps maintain healthy insulin sensitivity.  Healthy glucose metabolism and maintenance of normal, healthy nerve function are supported by Alpha-Lipoic Acid.  Jiaogulan supports healthy, normal insulin sensitizing and optimal blood flow to the hooves.  Fenugreek also supports normal, healthy insulin sensitizing, and the exercise capacity of muscle, while Taurine helps maintain normal weight."
