Study: Following 6-8 months of supplementation with Platinum Performance® Equine and Platinum Metabolic Support formulas, horses had a 19-20 percent decrease in fasting cortisol (p < 0.05) and insulin (p = 0.052), as reported from a study conducted at Colorado State University.
Outcome: Supplementation helped maintain blood glucose levels within normal ranges in horses in this study.*
A balanced diet is important for horses with metabolic health concerns. Supplementation can help.
Omega-3 fatty acids may help support healthy glucose metabolism by optimizing cell membranes and can support healthy levels of inflammation.
Antioxidant supplementation is also key since oxidative stress is a unifying factor in the occurrence of obesity, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.
The minerals chromium and magnesium influence facilitation of insulin signaling, which makes them critical nutrients in glucose metabolism.
