B-QUIET PASTE provides concentrated levels of thiamine, an important B-vitamin, and magnesium.
In hard-working horses or those on high-grain diets, production of thiamine by intestinal bacteria may be reduced because of stress and hindgut acidosis.
Thiamine plays a vital role in carbohydrate metabolism and nerve transmission. Magnesium is needed by horses for proper digestion of starches and its presence is necessary for hundreds of enzymatic functions.
Horses with a thiamine deficiency may exhibit nervous or hyperreactive behaviour. Horses deficient in magnesium may be unusually spooky and excitable, and may have muscle tremors or cramping.
B-QUIET PASTE is a nutrient-enriched paste for all classes of horses for use before and during competition.
