FEED SUPPLEMENT FOR HORSES
TO REGULATE THE SUGAR- AND FAT METABOLISM
WHO BENEFITS FROM METABOLIC CARE SUPPLEMENTATION?
METABOLIC CARE is a feed supplement to support the sugar- and fat metabolism in and to promote the blood flow in the hooves of horses and ponies at risk for laminitis.
METABOLIC CARE is ideal to support horses:
- who eat a lot of sugars (grain & fresh grass);
- with a tendency for overweight;
- with older age; and
- with hormonal 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 mares. The use during pregnancy and lactation is therefore not recommended.
WHY SHOULD I GIVE METABOLIC CARE TO MY HORSE OR PONY?
A well-functioning metabolism is of great importance for the general health of your horse.
The liver clears the blood of fatty acids and waste products, while the pancreas is responsible for regulating blood sugar levels.
Hoof health can also be seriously affected by an unbalanced metabolism.The lamellae, which attach the horn wall to the coffin bone, can inflame and detach. When this happens, we call it laminitis.
METABOLIC CARE is a feed supplement for horses and ponies, that helps to balance the sugar- and fat metabolism and supports the hooves by combining 8 different plants and L-arginine with a beneficial effect on 4 levels.
blood circulation in the feet
Chrysanthellum americanum, L-arginine and Pinus maritima have a beneficial effect on blood flow in the feet of horses by dilating the blood vessels (1,2,3).
support of the natural defence and detoxification
Sulfur is the most common mineral in horses’ hooves. MSM is a naturally occurring organic molecule and is very rich in sulfur. MSM and Silybum marianum also support the natural defence and promote detoxification (detox)of the body (4,5).
supports the sugar- and fat metabolism
Chlorella, Berberis vulgaris and Licorice have a beneficial effect on sugar- and fat metabolism in the body and on stomach and intestinal health (6,7,8).
strengthens the connective tissue in the hoof
Horsetail powder has a beneficial effect onthe health of the laminae in the hoof by supporting the production of collagen (5).

These are real comments from real people...
...who in fact never even tried our product.
Chill out peeps! We all need sugar to survive, and so does your horse. It's the basic building block of what runs our bodies and those of our horses, and, in fact, it's even necessary.
Moreover, there is a VERY GOOD EXPLANATION why we have added Sorbitol and Dextrose to our product. We have carefully selected these two natural carriers because they improve the absorption of the active ingredients in the small intestine, to have a faster effect.
It all depends on the amount of sugar, and we all know that TOO MUCH SUGAR IS BAD!
So in horses with cushing, equine metabolic syndrome, laminitis or any other glucose related problems it is definitely necessary to limit sugar intake of the total daily diet.
We however, added only a very tiny amount of natural dextrose to our product, because it improves the absorption of the active substances in the small intestines, which increases the positive effect of the product.
We can confidently say that our products is 100% safe, even for horses with sugar related issues. METABOLIC CARE contains 70% active substances (that's a lot, trust me!) and only 30% excipients needed (!) as a carrier for absorption of the active substances.
Daily amount of hay: 1 kg of sugar
Daily amount of grass: 2 kg of sugar
Daily amount of METABOLIC CARE: 2,33 gram sugar
THAT IS 1000 TIMES LESS SUGAR!
My patient with cushing and laminitis is very comfortable!

My patient with Cushing (PPID) and laminitis is comfortable and sound. The combination of METABOLIC CARE and CURCA-FLEX LIQUID really increased the well-being of the horse without the need of NSAIDs.
Heel tevreden over de Metabolic Care
W. Gersmann, on Jan 23, 2020
Heel tevreden over de Metabolic Care. Afgelopen jaar ineens problemen gekregen met mijn 16jarige Kruising IJslander die bijna hoefbevangen was en een veranderde vetverdeling kreeg met een wat dikke buik, ook was de ppid test in oktober wat verhoogd, in overleg met mijn dierenarts de Metabolic care gestart samen met een aangepast voerbeleid . Mijn paardje is echt enorm opgeknapt, beweegt beter en ook zijn hoeven zijn sterk verbeterd, ook zie ik veranderingen in de vetverdeling. Je hoeft maar 15gram per dag te geven , het product is smakelijk en het beetje suiker wat het product bevat is echt heel weinig. Ik ga zeker door met de Metabolic Care.
De bestelling ging verder prima via Internet en als je vragen hebt over de producten, stel ze via Messenger, je krijgt echt direct antwoord wat erg fijn is.
