Global Herbs Metabolic Tonic – 1kg

New improved palatability! Same wonderful formula, tastier flavour.

Metabolic Tonic is a natural formula that helps horses maintain good condition and fitness through the maintenance of stable blood glucose, insulin levels, normal body fat distribution.

Signs to look out for in your horse or pony that may need extra support include:

  • Laying down a lot of irregular fat especially on the crest
  • Horse often gets laminitis or sensitive laminae
  • Can’t control blood sugars or energy levels
  • Horse is tired and lethargic
  • Appear hormonally unbalanced
  • Not usual performance level

Breeds that are high risk include: Welsh, Dartmoor, Shetland Ponies, Morgan, Arabian and Warmblood horses.

Metabolic Tonic helps your horse maintain a normal metabolism.  The word ‘Metabolism’ describes how all the chemical reactions in the body work together.

The body’s metabolism naturally changes with the time of year and the amount of fat deposits present especially during the Autumn/Winter months.   The state of the body’s metabolism in such conditions affects energy levels, insulin resistance levels, blood glucose stability, fat levels in crest and belly, sensitive laminae, and normal drinking and urination.

Metabolic Tonic is designed to help all the above remain in normal harmony so that your horses can live comfortable, fit and happy lives.

Note: When horses and ponies put on fat for the winter or eat too much at any time of year, the extra fat they gain can naturally release hormone-like chemicals that change the metabolism and make it much easier to lay down more fat and develop large crests.  This change in metabolism may make it possible to become very fat in preparation for winter but also makes such horses very sensitive to rich food.  Horses can also be affected by this situation at any time of year.

Please consult your vet for further assessment and advice on metabolic concerns

Review by , 1 year ago

Metabolic tonic working well on overweight Welsh D with heavy sheath. So much grease streaming out now having to clean out with water and sponge as fat is being excreted. Is also moving better as muscles become less stuck. Have tried loads of EMS products over the years trying to fix this horse but this tonic has had best result for after just 3 weeks. Will stay on loading dose for 2-3 months until he reaches a more normal condition.
