- Thiamine and magnesium supplement to nutritionally support nervous, excitable and high-strung horses, including those on high grain intakes.
- For horses diagnosed with a thiamine or magnesium deficiency.
- May assist horses prior to being exposed to stressful events such as travel, competition, weaning or the early stages of training.
B-QUIET PASTE provides concentrated levels of thiamine, an important B-vitamin, and magnesium.
In hard-working horses or those on high-grain diets, production of thiamine by intestinal bacteria may be reduced because of stress and hindgut acidosis.
Thiamine plays a vital role in carbohydrate metabolism and nerve transmission. Magnesium is needed by horses for proper digestion of starches and its presence is necessary for hundreds of enzymatic functions.
Horses with a thiamine deficiency may exhibit nervous or hyperreactive behaviour. Horses deficient in magnesium may be unusually spooky and excitable, and may have muscle tremors or cramping. Thus, when levels of thiamine and magnesium fall below essential levels, horses may not perform at their best.
B-QUIET PASTE is a nutrient-enriched paste for all classes of horses for use before and during competition.
