New Look, Same Proven Formula
The World’s Most Tried and Trusted Topline Conditioner
Equi-Jewel® is a scientifically formulated high-fat, low-starch, and cool-energy conditioner. Equi-Jewel is the original, research-proven stabilised rice bran product for horses and is the only conditioning supplement to include KER BMC™ to buffer the digestive tract. This, combined with Equi-Jewel’s proven track record, make it the go-to topline conditioner for horse owners, leading trainers and breeding farms around the world.
Support Gastric Health
Equi-Jewel contains KER BMC, a unique source of marine-derived calcium shown to be more highly digestible than other forms of calcium typically used in feeds. KER BMC has been shown to buffer stomach acid to bolster gastric health and reduce the incidence of ulcers, as well as moderate the pH of the hindgut to prevent acidosis.
Equi-Jewel also contains linoleic acid which has been shown to reduce gastric acid secretion and increase output of protective prostaglandins, making Equi-Jewel an important component in the diet of horses at risk of gastric ulcers and hindgut disturbances.
In a scientific study conducted by Kentucky Equine Research, researchers compared the effects of feeding Equi-Jewel and corn oil. During strenuous exercise, horses fed Equi-Jewel had lower lactic acid levels than horses fed corn oil. The inclusion of Equi-Jewel as a substitute for corn oil in rations also resulted in lower heart rates and subsequently shorter recovery periods.
Low GI Index
The glycemic index (GI) of a feed is the measure of blood glucose levels in response to feeding.
A low-GI feed produces lower spikes in blood glucose. This slower release of energy decreases the risk of disorders such as developmental orthopaedic disease, laminitis, digestive problems, and equine metabolic syndrome.

Why is it important to feed stabilised rice bran?
Removal of the bran from rice releases an enzyme called lipase that oxidises fat and turns the oil in rice bran rancid. The oxidation of the fat occurs very quickly, especially in warmer weather, and results in a soapy aftertaste, which can be quite unpalatable to most horses.
The rancid bran also contains damaging free radicals and reactive oxidative species. Subjecting the rice bran to heat and pressure (stabilisation) soon after its separation from the rice grain destroys the lipase. Without the destructive lipase enzyme, the high fat content of rice bran is stabilised and this gives Equi-Jewel its proven palatability and long shelf life. Equi-Jewel is a stabilised rice bran conditioner of premium quality and palatability.
