Re: Metformin vs pergolide Spirulina and wheat bran
Eleanor Kellon, VMD
I understand they used aleurone, not wheat bran, but aleurone is not readily available and likely very expensive. Aleurone is not a protein. It is a layer of the grain that contains many different nutrients https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0733521021000667 . Also see table 1 of the article you linked.
It produced a change in normal horses, not necessarily a benefit. The mention of antiinflammatory effects does not apply to EMS like it does to rats and people. As they said, the lower rate of glucose peak may be due to slowed digestion of these concentrate meals. None of this means there would be any benefit for IR horses on low carbohydrate diets.
