What is chelated magnesium?
There are many forms of magnesium compounds and chelated is a much more digestible form due to its bioavailability, which is why it’s used in MagCalm. Other less effective forms include magnesium sulfate and magnesium Oxide.
This is because magnesium is bound to something that aids its digestion. In this instance, it’s magnesium glycinate and combined with soya bean meal meaning that it’s a supplement that can be absorbed by your horse. To increase absorption, Magcalm uses herbs with the magnesium content.
Why is magnesium supplementation good for horses?
