Magnesium aspartate is an organic form of magnesium with increased bioavailability compared to some other forms and it is readily absorbed through the intestine wall.

Horses that are growing, lactating, or in work can have increased magnesium requirements.

Magnesium can benefit some horses suffering from Equine Headshaking Syndrome by increasing the threshold before the nerves fire that cause the headshaking behaviour.

Recommended feeding amounts but can be adjusted as needed.
