The Importance of Food Grade Magnesium Chloride (article)

A sample of what our customers say…

“Hopper has been consistently quiet and calm, with no spookiness or aggression, since his diet was changed late in 2009 and magnesium chloride flakes were added to feeds.”
Deb Benstead, Horse Therapist

“All horses are displaying calm temperaments, increased balanced energy levels, improved hoof condition and coats, and general overall health improvements since commencing supplementation of feeds with Magnesium4Horses magnesium chloride flakes.”
Liz Inder, Customer

” I am having great success with the flakes/solution in feeds. And I apply Magnesium Lotion to the coronet bands of the hooves of the old TB and his feet look great. At 25 years old he looks very fit and well!”
Di Botten, Customer

“Will is doing so well on the magnesium!! He’s a lot more chilled out and I even had a ride tonight, and he was amazing. His movement felt more free and his muscles were a lot looser when I massaged him. Yay! When I practiced the leading, he was perfect. Thank you so much!” Jeane Dekter, Horse Groomer

Food Grade Magnesium for Horses

Magnesium4horses Food Grade Magnesium Chloride is a natural salt harvested from a pristine region 3,000m above sea level:
Elektra Magnesium® Chloride Hexahydrate (MgCl2.6H20) are natural salt flakes comprising magnesium chloride in a crystal complex of 6 water molecules (hexahydrate) plus 2% trace minerals. They are naturally evaporated food grade magnesium chloride salt flakes, with Australian laboratory trace mineral analysis showing NO mercury and NO lead contaminants. They also contain the highest level of elemental magnesium (over 16%) of all the magnesium chlorides in the range (range = 12-16%).

Magnesium chloride is the most soluble and bio-available form of magnesium, and requires no work to digest once it is dissolved in water. Cells can take it up immediately – even transdermally! Other magnesium compounds encounter digestive issues and are less bio-available. For example, magnesium oxide, a commonly used magnesium supplement, is only 4% bio-available, which means that most is expelled via the digestive system regardless of how magnesium deficient the horse may be.

If a horse is suffering from acidosis and gut disorders then oral supplementation of magnesium chloride may be substitued with transdermal absorption until the digestive issues are corrected.

Calmer, happier horse with enough magnesium in the diet.
