In a recent scientific study conducted by Kentucky Equine Research, the effects of feeding Equi-Jewel and corn oil were compared. During Strenuous exercise, horses fed Equi-Jewel had lower lactic acid levels than horses fed corn oil. The inclusion of rice bran as a substitute for corn oil in rations also resulted in lower heart rates and subsequent shorter recovery periods.
Another study conducted by Kentucky Equine Research looked at the buffering capacity of BMC on the acidic conditions of the hindgut. They found a 54% increase in buffering capacity with horse fed BMC compared to the control.
