MagnaGard Gastric Support Supplement for Horses
For the average 1100 lb horse, the minimum requirement for magnesium 7.5 grams/day (7,500 milligrams). This product provides 0.728 grams per dose. A day's worth of forage can provide 10 - 30 grams. In fact, the only mineral in this product in any negligible amount is iron, at 218 milligrams/dose, providing half the minimum daily requirement (400 mg/day). Iron is the one mineral not lacking in the equine diet. All of this is explained by the ingredient - clay - aka, dirt. Iron is the most abundant mineral in dirt. $30 for dirt.
There is a clear difference in my barrel horses after starting them on MagnaGard. They are more relaxed and focused than ever before, and I can have peace of mind knowing I am doing my job as a horse owner to keep ulcers away. They seem to like the taste of it and they eat it right up with no hesitation when I sprinkle it into their feed. I love this stuff and I'm so glad I gave it a try because I am never letting my horses go without it again!
I started with a small bag of Magnagard and then had such good results I bought the bigger bucket this last time. I have a Hancock/Blue Valentine bread QH named Gus. He is a naturally anxious horse with a huge work ethic. He is also a picky eater. I added Magna Gard to his food and slowly I started to find he was much more comfortable, less anxious, and he started licking his bowl clean at every meal. I would say it took about 2 weeks for a noticeable difference on the supplement. I’m very pleased with it and I am going to keep him on it.
I feel my horses are benefiting from this supplement
