Low glycemic nutrition

Suitable for all performance horses.

NRM Low GI Sport® is scientifically formulated in conjunction with the experts in equine nutrition, Kentucky Equine Research, as a low glycemic feed that provides a slow release of cool energy to the horse. Low GI Sport® is formulated without grains to ensure a low starch level, which assists the natural digestive process and minimises the potential issues associated with high starch grain diets, such as fizzy behaviour, colic, laminitis and tying up. In order to create a feed that is low on the glycemic index, we sourced energy from premium fats (including EquiJewel® and high quality vegetable oil) and digestible fibres (including beet pulp and soy hulls).
