Polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM) is a disease that results in an abnormal accumulation of glycogen (sugar) in the muscles.
Clinical signs may include reluctance to move, sweating, and muscle tremors, also known as “tying-up”.
There are two types of PSSM. Type 1 is caused by a known genetic mutation and a DNA test is available. Type 2 may also be genetic, but the exact cause is unknown. There are currently no scientifically verified DNA tests for PSSM2, but a muscle biopsy can be performed for diagnosis.
There is no cure for PSSM, but most affected horses can be managed successfully through diet and exercise.
The PSSM Reclaim blend has 11 organic essential oils! Oils that help control/balance gut function and allows the body to properly store glycogen in the muscles. When the gut is balanced, it allows the muscles to function properly.
Carrot Seed, Anise Seed, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Peppermint and Patchouli are just a few of the oils in the blend.
How to use: 15-20 drops in feed 1-2 times a day, depending on the severity of the issue.
