Magnesium 5,000™ pellets support proper muscle function and a healthy nervous system in horses. This essential mineral is required for bone growth, metabolic function and healthy hooves. Magnesium supplementation has been shown to have a calming effect in nervous horses.
Magnesium plays many roles in the horse’s body. It is involved in the formation of bone and protein synthesis, helps to maintain electrolyte balance, influences nervous system regulation and is a co-factor for a number of enzymes. Low magnesium levels or deficiency can contribute to nervousness, depression, abnormal behavior, muscle tremors, lack of coordination, respiratory problems, growth failure and more. Magnesium supplementation may lessen abnormal fat deposits such as cresty neck which could lead to improvements in metabolic health.
