A CALCIUM FORMULA TO PREVENT AND RELIEVE SORENESS, RELAX AND CALM MUSCLES
CALCIUM CITRATE (5,700 mg per scoop) Magnesium Oxide (2,500 mg per scoop), equals the ideal elemental value of 1:1 ratio and are mutually dependent. Therefore, these two elements should be administered at the same time. Magnesium governs the bio-availability and bioactivity of calcium. Deficiencies are likely on all un-supplemented diets for horses that exercise heavily. Magnesium helps absorb calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium. It is necessary for the B vitamins, especially thiamine, to be utilized. A deficiency interferes with the transmission of nerve and muscle impulses causing nervousness. Magnesium is considered to be an anti-stress mineral. It functions to relax skeletal muscles as well as the smooth muscle of blood vessels and the gastrointestinal tract.
RECOMMENDED SERVING: 1 scoop (33 grams) daily for maintenance, 1 scoop twice daily for performance horses (43 cc scoop included)
INGREDIENTS: Calcium Citrate, Magnesium Oxide, Vitamin D, Zinc, Thiamine, DMG, Potassium Phosphate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Boswellia Extract, Vitamin E, Selenium*
Vitamin D (1,000 IU per scoop) Zinc (300 mg per scoop), Facilitates absorption and enhances optimization of calcium and phosphorus, as well as the B vitamins which depend on the phosphorous for complete absorption. Vitamin D and chelated Zinc act synergistically with the calcium to ensure maximum bio-availability.
Dicalcium Phosphate (17,500 mg per scoop), provides calcium and phosphorus which may be lacking in an animal's regular feed. The neutral PH contributes to the buffering action to relieve upset stomach and reduces lactic acid build-up. Dicalcium Phosphate is an ideal feed supplement because of it optimum Calcium:Phosphorus ratio of 1.3:1
Thiamine B-1 (1,000 mg per scoop) Thiamine enhances circulation and assists in blood formation. It is needed for muscle tone of the intestines, stomach and heart. Deficiency of Thiamine can present as laboured breathing, nervousness, weak and sore muscle.
DMG (1,500 mg per scoop) Aids in maintenance of high energy levels and improves oxygen utilization. Reduces lactic acid levels under extreme stress, decreases fatigue, cramping and recovery faster from racing and training.
Potassium Phosphate (1000 mg per scoop) Supplies the important electrolyte potassium and an abundance of phosphate.
Boswellia Extract (500 mg per scoop) Boswellia may open up collateral blood circulation, thereby maintaining mobility and reducing pain due to stiffness.
Vitamin E (2,000 IU per scoop) Selenium* (1mg per scoop), performance horses need increased levels of Vitamin E and Selenium to minimize the delirious affects associated with stress. Supplementation is necessary of maintenance of muscle and is suggested that race horses or performance horses obtain at least 2 mg of selenium daily. Deficiencies can result in "Tying Up" symptoms. Vitamin E & Selenium are considered effective in treating and preventing re-occurrence of the disability.
CAUTION: Since toxicity can occur, do not overfeed Selenium. Check all feed for sources of Selenium. Can be harmful in excess. Consult your veterinarian.
