Magnesium helps muscles generate energy to carry out functions. It also helps the blood acting as an activator for many enzymes in the body. If the horse doesn't have the correct amount of magnesim this allows calcium to overload the muscles and nerves and that is the same as rising adrenaline.I
Magnesium helps the muscles generate energy to carry out functions. It also helps the blood act as an activator for many enzymes in the body . If the horse doesn't have the correct amount of magnesium the calcium will overload the muscles and nerves.
Magnesium plays the role of a calmer to the brain.
Magnesium play a big part in the nerve and muscle function in horses. When they don't have enough of it they might become wary, nervous, and excitable. Horses can't only store limited amounts of magnesium at a time so becoming deficient can happen very quickly. With enough magnesium, therefore, the horse will be calmer and clear minded.
All animals need to have the correct balance of calcium and magnesium. When a horse is high strung or becomes stressed, anxious, nervous or excited, they burn off magnesium. This allows calcium to overload muscle and nerve cells and replicates the rise of adrenaline. This can cause erratic behavior, aggressiveness and/or tightening of muscles.
Magnesium can calm the nervous and cardio-vascular systems and induces muscle relaxation.
Because horses can only store limited amounts of magnesium in their systems, excitable horses can burn off magnesium at a faster rate, allowing there to be an imbalance in the horses system with too much calcium and too little magnesium. This rise in calcium concentration overloads the nerve and muscle cells of the horse, simulating a rise in a adrenaline and causing a horse to be even more nervous and excitable. Having magnesium in a supplement such as smart calm prevents this imbalance from occuring.
Gee, these are so interesting to read. I knew that magnesium helped with calming, but I had no idea why. Thanks everyone!
it helps musels
Magnesium effects the central nervous system. Magnesium must be kept in balance with calcium and copper in order for the body to function correctly and it is key for bone development. Supplements containing Magnesium can help balance out deficiencies in a horses diet and reduce the effects of the nervousness and excitability in horses caused by high levels of sugar, protein, and fiber. IT can slow the heart rate and relaxes muscles.
