Quiessence® is a pelleted Magnesium and Chromium formula designed to support calm, balanced behavior in equines. Quiessence® also aids in the maintaining normal glucose levels, reducing the tendency of founder.

Magnesium supports peripheral circulation to the extremities, which may ease sore feet and promote healing in foundered animals. Chromium has been shown to improve glucose clearance by improving insulin sensitivity.

Quiessence® is a pelleted, palatable Magnesium and Chromium formula designed to support calm, balanced behavior in equines. It may help animals that are cresty-necked to reduce the crest, and may also help reduce the tendency to founder by supporting normal glucose metabolism and support peripheral circulation. Quiessence® is legal for competition with no known side effects.

Horses that may benefit from Quiessence®:

Horses with obesity problems

Horses prone to or at risk for founder

Horses prone to cresty necks

Nervous, tense horses that show an inability to learn and concentrate

Horses with tight tense muscles that are slow to warm up and have sore or tight backs

Easy keepers on a hay only diet

Horses whose main diet consists of preserved and processed feed stuff

Horses grazing land known to be low in magnesium

Horses grazing on acid soils

Horses with problems gaining or maintaining weight

Horses with nerve conditions

Magnesium works closely with Potassium and Calcium in cells, and a deficiency of Magnesium often results in low interstitial Potassium and the corresponding symptoms. Muscles are the main body store for Magnesium and, if there is a deficiency in the diet, the body draws Magnesium from the muscles. If enough is withdrawn, muscle Magnesium levels drop, resulting in neuromuscular problems. Therefore, horses and ponies that are nervous, tense, show an inability to learn and concentrate, have tight, tense muscles, are slow to warm up and have sore or tight backs can show improvement when given Quiessence®.

Giving additional Magnesium and Chromium to cresty-necked, insulin resistant, founder prone horses and ponies may help reduce the tendency to founder. Magnesium supports peripheral circulation to the extremities, which may ease sore feet and promote healing in foundered animals. Chromium has been shown to improve glucose clearance by improving insulin sensitivity in various classes of livestock. Quiessence® provides high levels of Magnesium and Chromium in a pelleted form.

In a study we conducted in 2002-2003, founder prone horses with thick, cresty necks showed a reduction in neck thickness and hardness when fed a Magnesium supplement. The reduction in neck thickness made the horses easier to manage, ride and handle, as well being more aesthetically pleasing.
