Formulating a horse calmer…What works?  

Magnesium as a horse calmer
The one ingredient that most horse calmers have in common is magnesium. There is a good reason why magnesium is so popular as a horse calmer - it works or at least it works on most horses. There is evidence that magnesium in connection with the sodium can suppress the irritability of nerve cells which may explain its usefulness as a horse calmer. Magnesium on its own is less effective as a calmer than it is when combined with other nutrients but more about that later.  

There are several different chemical forms of magnesium used in horse calmers. The most common forms used are Magnesium Oxide, Magnesium Sulphate and Magnesium Aspartate.

Magnesium Aspartate: does it work as a horse calmer?
European Food Safety Authority in the EFSA Journal (2008) 883, 1-23
Reported as follows ‘ In view of the reported information on the insolubility of the magnesium aspartate complex, the Panel could not consider the magnesium aspartate complex as bioavailable’. This finding would seem to indicate that Magnesium Aspartate would not be adequately absorbed by horses and would therefore be unlikely to have much effect as a calmer.

Magnesium Sulphate as a horse calmer.
Magnesium Sulphate is frequently used in horse calmer formulations and it is highly absorbed but it has a number of drawbacks. Magnesium Sulphate draws water into the bowel and it is possible to overdose on it upsetting the delicate calcium- magnesium balance. It is best not used long-term as a horse calmer.   
Magnesium oxide is the form of choice for most horse calmers. However the horse’s absorption of this nutrient is depended on the source of the material. Magnesium Oxide has one big advantage; your horse will only absorb what it needs and excrete the surplus. Best Behaviour contains a highly absorbable form of Magnesium Oxide. Magnesium is a bit hit and miss, it works for some horses and not for others. Sometimes it works well for a time but then the horse seems to  become habituated to its effects wear off over time. For a long term effective horse calmer we have to consider adding something else; L Tryptophan.    

L-Tryptophan is an amino acid that helps steady nervousness and excitable horses. It is very good for horses that find it difficult to concentrate and loose focus. It is also excellent for young horses being broken and during the early stages of schooling.

(Vitamin B1) Thiamine plays an important role in the transmission of nerve impulses: it is an excellent horse calmer. Vitamin Bi is particularly good for edgy,   spooky and touchy horses that fidget and fuss and don’t like being clipped or handled.
