AN ORGANIC BLEND OF CRANBERRY & CINNAMON

FOR IR AND EMS - REDUCE GLUCOSE & INSULIN LEVELS NATURALLY

Horses love the taste of cranberry and cinnamon. G’s WIRX combines the A-type PAC benefits of Organic Cranberry (restricts carbohydrate digestion to lower insulin secretion) with Ceylon Cinnamon’s ability to reduce blood glucose levels in a non-GMO blend that is safe and legal for competition.

IS WIRX RIGHT FOR MY HORSE?

DOES YOUR HORSE STRUGGLE WITH...

  • Recurring laminitis or sore feet when on spring grass?
  • Hard fat deposits around the tail, crest, or shoulders?
  • Maintaining optimal weight?
HAS YOUR HORSE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH…
  • Insulin Resistance (IR)?
  • Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS)?

HAVE YOU ALREADY TRIED…

  • Prescription drugs?
  • Various supplements and feed additives?
  • Diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes?

    IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS ALL TOO FAMILIAR, G’S WIRX MAY BE THE SAFE, SIMPLE SOLUTION YOU’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR.

    BEING PROACTIVE COULD HELP YOUR HORSE LEAD A LONG AND COMFORTABLE LIFE!

    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    G’S WIRX SAFELY REDUCES INSULIN, GLUCOSE AND TRIGLYCERIDE LEVELS WITH TWO SIMPLE INGREDIENTS…

    CRANBERRY

    Canadian-grown organic cranberries are incredibly rich in A-type proanthocyanidins (PACs), which are scientifically proven to lower insulin by restricting carbohydrate digestion therefore reducing insulin secretion.

    Additionally, cranberry helps decrease fatty liver disease, alters gut microbia, improves cardiovascular health, and prevents urinary tract infections. The best part? The horses love it!

    CINNAMON

    Organic Ceylon Cinnamon (known as “True Cinnamon”) is proven to reduce blood glucose levels. Unlike Cassia Cinnamon (typically sold in grocery stores), Ceylon contains far less coumarin, a substance banned by FEI.

    Cassia Cinnamon contains 1% coumarin, whereas Ceylon Cinnamon contains only 0.004% - too low to cause health risks and too low to test in competition.

    HOW DO WE KNOW IT WORKS?

    Because we trialed it!

    We knew of several research studies on rats and humans using cranberry extract to control insulin resistance, but no studies had been done on equines. 

    We decided it was time to change that…

    In a 2018 veterinary-led trial, WIRX proved to significantly reduce insulin, glucose, and triglyceride levels in horses, helped them maintain a healthy weight, and kept these levels within normal ranges. These results all served to prevent future laminitic episodes.

    THE TRIAL CONTROLS INCLUDED:

    • Confirmed IR horses and ponies
    • Blood tested at Day 0, Day 45, Day 90, and 1 year
    • Each blood draw at 3 hours post-morning feed, by the same veterinarian, tested at the same lab
    • No changes to diets or medications

    THE RESULTS

    • Average glucose decreased 18.3% after 4 months.
    • Average glucose decreased 22.8% after 1 year.
    • Average insulin decreased 68.3% after 4 months.
    • Average insulin decreased 88% after 1 year.
    • Average triglyceride decreased 13% after 4 months.
    • More than 90% of horses are experiencing ongoing success with WIRX.

    Disclaimer: WIRX compliments the lifestyle changes you and your vet have already made.  Proper dietary controls and veterinary care are still imperative to the health and wellbeing of your EMS/IR horse.

    WHAT’S IN THE BUCKET?

    G’s WIRX is packaged a bit differently from other products on the market. You’ll instantly recognize the ingredients. You can taste them, smell them, and even try them yourself! It’s not the generic brown pellet you’re used to feeding. We keep the cranberry and cinnamon separate to maintain the integrity of our whole food product and avoid the need for binders.

    You’ll measure the ingredients individually, per the enclosed feeding chart, using the scoops provided. It may be a bit more work, but it WIRX! We recommend mixing WIRX into moistened feed, such as soaked beet pulp, hay cubes, or pellets.

     CINNAMON CAN BOOST SENSITIVITY TO INSULIN WHICH LOWERS INSULIN RESISTANCE IN EFFECT; AND IT CAN REGULATE THE BREAKDOWN OF CARBOHYDRATES THEREBY REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF GLUCOSE IN THE BODY.
