A high purity calcined magnesite, which is 85% magnesium oxide. A budget alternative to our pharmaceutical grade magnesium oxide at 99.7% purity.


Feeding guidelines – 3g per 100kg of bodyweight


  • Magnesium oxide is the primary ingredient in many of the quality equine calming products on the market
  • Magnesium is needed for more than 325 enzymes within the horses body
  • Involved in protein synthesis so needed for general growth and repair of tissue, e.g. Hooves.
    Required for the
    maintenance of normal blood circulation within the body, limbs and feet of the horse
  • Laminitis has been linked with magnesium deficiency
  • Magnesium is critical for balanced secretion of insulin and glucose uptake
  • It is involved in regulating blood sugar levels after carbohydrate intake and deficiency is
    associated with insulin resistance
    (symptoms include cresty neck and/or fat deposits)
  • Magnesium is essential for proper calcium absorption and is an important mineral in the bone matrix.
    It can also assistin the absorption and metabolism of Vitamins B, C and E
  • Magnesium deficiency can result in nervousness and an inability to concentrate, tight tense muscles
    which are less able
    to relax, tightness or soreness through the back, slow to warm up
  • Periods of stress lead to an increased need for magnesium
  • Magnesium is often lacking in equine diets due to processed, preserved, high concentrated feeds
  • Magnesium is important for the detoxification of toxic substances from the body. It protects
    against heavy metal toxicity and oxyradical damage
  • The availability of magnesium is low in; fast growing lush grass; after periods of rainfall; in
    acid soils i.e. ‘horse sick pastures’ or artificially fertilised pastures (acid conditions destroy soil
    microorganisms which are used to make the minerals usable by plants)
  • It is noted that in human research it can take up to one year of oral magnesium supplementation
    to restore intracellular magnesium levels back to normal
