Placide M+Calcium is ideal for when your horse is on fast growing grass which is low in minerals.
Specially developed high grade mix of bio-available organic chelated magnesium-calcium blend with boron. Boron is an essential trace element to help ensure maximum absorption and effectiveness.
A balanced level of magnesium & calcium is required in the body to keep an animal settled and calm.
The calcium:magnesium ratio should ideally be nearer 2:1. The 1:1 ratio in Placide-M+Ca allows for horses to obtain calcium from other sources in their diet such as lucerne etc.
Stress, anxiety and excitement causes the body to burn magnesium excessively thus upsetting the balance. This causes calcium to overload nerve and muscle cells causing erratic behaviour, tightening of muscles and often aggression.
Boron promotes and helps maintain:
- Is essential for magnesium and calcium metabolism
- Adequate levels reduce the excretion levels ofmagnesium by up to 40%
- Helps maintain well-being of the joints and bones
- Helps maintain health of the reproductive system
- Helps maintain health of the brain
Maintaining mineral balances on a daily basis is highly recommended for contented healthy horses.
