Pure Form Equine offers a variety of flavorful biscuits that can be enjoyed by ALL horses, including horses with Cushings, Insulin Resistance, Laminitis and other metabolic disorders.
Chia is a very low non-structural carbohydrate (NSC). When the soft-shelled seed breaks down it forms a mucilaginous gel that creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down. This process is believed to help slow the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. A slower rate of metabolism results in a more even blood-sugar level, which is important for Insulin-Resistant horses. Additionally, the dimple in the top of the biscuit makes it easy to administer medication.
