A unique combination of chelated magnesium that among others that gives a good bioavailability. Used when the magnesium content of the feed is not sufficient to meet the horse’s needs. Contains chelated magnesium for better bioavailability.
Magnesium is one of the body’s most important minerals, needed for the function of many enzymes and is important for maintaining good muscle and nerve function, as well as the heart and blood vessels. Around 60% of the body’s magnesium is found in the skeleton and is important for skeleton development. Magnesium works together with calcium and phosphorous.
The loss of magnesium each day via dung and urine is approx. 6 mg/kg body weight, which must be made up for in the maintenance feed. However, magnesium cannot be stored in the body and must, therefore, be continuously added to feed. It has been proved that humans and horses often suffer from a lack of magnesium. One of the symptoms of deficiency in horses is nervousness i.e. being “skittishness” and highly-strung. When the body lacks magnesium it cannot handle the substances released in times of stress or fear resulting in an increased tendency to react to events surrounding the horse. The cause of the rise in magnesium deficiency that we’re seeing today is poor quality soil, although it can also be caused by an incorrect balance of calcium and magnesium in the feed. The ratio should be 5:2 of calcium and magnesium. Eclipse Biofarmab’s Biomagnesium contains magnesium with high bioavailability in the form of a unique combination of easily absorbed magnesiumoxide, magnesium phosphate and magnesium chelate.
Chelated is the name given when the electrolyte is protein bound, which is extra important for fast biological absorption.
Magnesium supplement with very good bioavailability for horses.
