Placide M + C
Placide-M+Ca A specially developed high grade of bio-available organic chelated magnesium-calcium blend with boron. Boron is an essential trace element to help ensure maximum absorption and therefore unmatched effectiveness.
A balanced level of magnesium & calcium is required in the body to keep an animal settled and calm.
The calcium:magnesium ratio should ideally be nearer 2:1. The 1:1 ratio in Placide-M+Ca allows for horses to obtain calcium from other sources in their diet such as lucerne etc.
Stress, anxiety and excitement causes the body to burn magnesium excessively thus upsetting the balance. This causes calcium to overload nerve and muscle cells causing erratic behaviour, tightening of muscles and often aggression.
