Hi Karen

Glad to hear your boy is doing well.

How do you know IR is under control?  Have you retested or going on symptoms only? Might there  be a case history here we could see?

Based on web site there are several ingredients the group does not routinely recommend:
Cinnamon, licorice, chromium, for example. There are some studies on vanadium and discussion here on its role as a race nutrient and with magnesium.


Would like to know how much of what is in the product but there is nothing on the web site that I could find.

The marketing approach seems to be to be to lower glucose which is not the issue with the vast majority of the horses here.

Would be interesting to know before and after blood results on this product.  There's a graph on the web site but not too much detail.

Thanks for the good news about Taz.
