Formula 707 Calming uses premium quality magnesium oxide to maximize bioavailability and combines it with two of the agents best known to have a calming effect in horses: thiamine and L-tryptophan.
Among the symptoms of low magnesium are nervousness, muscle tremors, a lusterless hair coat and intolerance to work or exercise; Thiamine deficiency may be expressed in nervousness, irritability, excitability, elevated blood lactate and pyruvate, and muscle cramping. Both are more likely to occur in horses on a high-carbohydrate (i.e. high-grain) diet.
A horse that’s nervous, jumpy and easily distracted is hard to train, difficult to work with and dangerous to be around. Calming Paste contains L-Tryptophan, which can be very beneficial to horses demonstrating anxiety before or during transportation, competition or other stressful situations. Because Formula 707 equine pastes are administered directly on the back of the tongue, they are absorbed into the system – and therefore go to work – much more quickly than if the same ingredients were given with feed. Plus, they’re just the right size to stick in the tack box or glove compartment – ready when you are.
