MiraChrome for Horses & Ponies
MiraChrome is a very safe and very effective trivalent chromium supplement. Chromium is, what-is-called in science, a "co-factor" for insulin. In the body, chromium regulates blood sugar. It prevents blood sugar spikes and troughs.
-Laminitis is the horse's diabetic-type response to high blood sugars, which come from the high sugars in grass, hay or grain.
-IR: Horses with insulin resistance, metabolic disease, or obesity, are more prone to laminitis, just as many overweight people are prone to diabetic problems in their feet and toes.
-Obesity: Chromium aids in melting excess fat off the body. Fat pads and fatty neck crests mel away with adequate chromium levels in the body. Muscles improve in tone and size as converted fat becomes energy for muscle development.
-Disposition: Chromium helps prevent the sugar highs which cause horses to be silly and inattentive.
-Stamina: Chromium improves stamina by extending the release of fuel to a horse's muscles.
Dosing: 3cc's/day in feed or directly in mouth
Can be fed at a higher rate during times of laminitic risk
