WIRX: The Science
G’s WIRX is the newest solution to Insulin Resistance/Dysregulation (IR) in horses, or Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS). Most horses and ponies with IR or EMS respond well to a strict low sugar/starch diet and exercise, but for many, it is much more challenging. For those who become laminitic from uncontrolled IR or EMS, the management and recovery becomes even more difficult and costly, as well as incredibly painful for the animal, oftentimes leading to euthanasia. G’s WIRX was developed to help lower both glucose and insulin (the cause of most laminitic episodes), using Organic Cranberry and Ceylon Cinnamon. Not only is it palatable and easy to feed, our ingredients are also pure, organic, non-GMO, human grade, and contain no fillers, binders, preservatives, or other additives.
After discovering this powerful ingredient combination, a veterinarian-led trial was completed which yielded impressive results; the average glucose and insulin drops were 18.3% and 68.3% respectively.
G’s WIRX has only two ingredients, which means you know exactly what you are feeding, and why. We use Organic Cranberry as it is incredibly rich in A-type proanthocyanidins (PACs), which are scientifically proven to lower insulin by restricting carbohydrate digestion therefore reducing insulin secretion. The Ceylon Cinnamon or “True Cinnamon,” is indigenous to Sri Lanka, and is proven to reduce glycemic response to starch by reducing starch digestion. One thing that is important to understand about Ceylon Cinnamon when compared to Cassia Cinnamon (the type that you buy at the grocery store), is the Coumarin content. Coumarin is not only toxic in high quantities, but it is on the FEI list of banned substances, as it is considered to be an anti-coagulant. It is found in high levels in turmeric, vanilla, clover, and cassia cinnamon. Cassia Cinnamon contains 1% coumarin, where as Ceylon Cinnamon only contains 0.004%, which is both too low to cause health risks and too low to test in competition.
Cranberry also has other added benefits, such as decreasing fatty liver disease, altering gut microbia, improving cardiovascular health, and preventing urinary tract infections. The best part? The horses love it!
