LifeCare Calming can help you create a horse that is relaxed, focused and ready to work or learn. Nervousness and excitability can make an otherwise good horse difficult, and while some horses are born nervous, others may suffer from nutritional deficiencies. The high-carbohydrate diets of many athletic horses can actually aggravate these deficiencies and worsen symptoms.
SYMPTOMS OF DEFICIENCIES:
- elevated blood lactate
- elevated pyruvate levels
- muscle tremors
- muscle cramping
- lusterless hair coat
- intolerance to work or exercise
LifeCare Calming was designed to balance magnesium and thiamin deficiencies and provide the additional calmative effect of L-tryptophan.
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.
Taken together on a daily basis, the three-part solution in LifeCare Calming of magnesium, thiamine and L-tryptophan can help high-strung horses settle down and concentrate on their work or training.
