Starch Guard™

  • $ 49.95


GUARD YOUR HORSE WITH STARCH GUARD + GREENGUARD!

High levels of starch in your horse's diet can cause toxin build-up and inflammation in the hind gut, impair insulin metabolism, and contribute to the onset of laminitis. 

Starch Guard™, created by Equinutrix Nutrition, is a proprietary supplement blend that has been shown in university and clinical trials to reduce inflammation associated with starch consumption, promote hind-gut health, and support normal metabolism.

This supplement is ideal for obese, insulin-resistant, equine metabolic syndrome, and Cushing’s horses. It also supports healthy metabolism and insulin levels in all horses during changes in pasture starch content during the Spring and Fall.

Protect your horse's gut and manage their pasture intake with a winning combo of Starch Guard™ + a GreenGuard Grazing Muzzle.

  • Supports healthy microbial function and hind-gut function
