Recommended Supplements for Horses With PPID or EMS, Presented by Kentucky Performance Products

We’ve been running a series on managing horses with metabolic issues. As a follow up to that, here are some recommended supplements for those horses.

This is the third post in the series “Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) or Cushing’s Disease (PPID).” You can find the first post here and the second post here.

  • A synergistic blend of polyphenols and amino acids, including leucine, that supports normal insulin regulation.
  • Research-proven to help maintain healthy body weight and normal fat distribution.
  • Sustains healthy hoof laminae.
  • Ask your vet if InsulinWise is right for your horse.
