Insulin & Carbohydrate Management



Product Description

Insulin & Carbohydrate Management is a nutraceutical scientifically designed to help ensure optimal health for insulin-resistant or glucose-intolerant horses that are unable to metabolize the high carbohydrate levels found in common pet foods. With its unique formula, Insulin & Carbohydrate Management provides essential nutrients for equine and helps suppress excessive drinking, excessive urination, obesity, and fat deposits. Insulin & Carbohydrate Management is an all-natural alternative to facilitate equestrian insulin resistance and glucose-intolerance.

- Inhibits the absorption o carbohydrates without interfering with the absorption of vital nutrients

  1. Worked within 5 days

    Posted by Lisa Harders on 23rd Feb 2011

    Within 5 days of starting my 2 EPSM horses on this there was a marked improvement in energy level, a noticeable decrease in glycogen deposits at the rail head, and a tremendous improvement in gait quality.
