- Detailed Benefits
Magnesium, often known as the anti-stress mineral, is one of the major minerals required by the horse and is involved in a number of important roles in your horse's body, including regulating blood pressure and the release of adrenaline, as well as relaxing the muscles and maintaining the nervous system.
Magnesium is used up more quickly during exercise or when under stress and depleted levels can lead to muscle tension, excitable behaviour and loss of concentration. For this reason working / competition horses tend to be particularly effected.
Many horses that get "spring fever" may also be suffering from Magnesium deficiency. Spring grass when it is growing very fast is rich in protein and energy but tends to take up less magnesium than it does at other times of the year. This can also happen again in the Autumn but to a lesser degree.
Calmer Equine contains a Chelated form of Magnesium (magnesium metalosate) which is much more easily absorbed / digested than other cheaper materials that are often used.
B Group Vitamins
Calmer Equine contains vitamins B1 (Thiamine), B6 (Pyridoxine) and B3 (Niacin).
B group vitamins are all important for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein and play an essential role in the function of the bodies nervous and muscular systems.
Vitamin B1, also known as thiamin, helps fuel the body by converting blood sugar into energy. It keeps your mucous membranes healthy and is essential for nervous system, cardiovascular and muscular function.
Vitamin B6, (pyridoxine), helps brain function and helps the body convert protein to energy.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) is important for converting calories from protein, fat and carbohydrates into energy. But it also helps the digestive system function and promotes a normal appetite and healthy skin and nerves.
Vitamin E plays many roles in the body and is essential for maintaining muscles, the immune and nervous and cardiovascular systems. It is also a powerful natural antioxidant helping to mop up free radicals. Free radicals are waste products naturally produced by the body, but more so during exercise, which means that working horses tend to have a greater requirement for vitamin E.
