John Ewing Calming Essentials
Help for nervous, jumpy or muscle-tight horses.
A horse that's nervous, jumpy and easily distracted is hard to train, difficult to work with and dangerous to be around. While some horses are born nervous, others may suffer from nutritional deficiencies.
Among the symptoms of low magnesium are nervousness, muscle tremors, a lusterless hair coat and intolerance to work or exercise; Thiamine deficiency may be expressed in nervousness, irritability, excitability, elevated blood lactate and pyruvate, and muscle cramping. Both are more likely to occur in horses on a high-carbohydrate (i.e. high-grain) diet.
New Formula 707 Calming Essential Pellets uses premium quality magnesium oxide to maximize bioavailability and combines it with two of the agents best known to have a calming effect in horses: thiamine and L-tryptophan.
A three-part solution
Thiamine, a vitamin of the B complex, has long been known to have a calming effect on some horses when used in higher doses of 500+ mg/day. Dietary thiamine requires magnesium to be converted to its active form within the body and works with supplemental calcium to achieve its calming effect.
L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid used in humans to combat depression, anxiety and insomnia. A vital precursor to serotonin and melatonin, important neurotransmitters associated with behavior, L-tryptophan is widely used in equine calming agents.
Taken together on a daily basis, the three-part solution of magnesium oxide, thiamine and L-tryptophan in Formula 707 Calming Essentials can help muscle-tight horses relax and focus on their work or training.
