MagOx Elite:

Magnesium 59.4%

My Best Horse magnesium oxide is ultra-pure and low in iron, with only about 12 mg of iron per 10 gram serving. This is suitable for supplementing horses which have iron overload.

 

A white powder, magnesium oxide is readily absorbed in horses. The majority of magnesium in the horse’s body is located in the bones and muscle. It plays a role in electrolyte balance within the body.


As a cofactor, it affects enzyme reactions, such as:

  • Kinase B
  • Hexokinase
  • Creatine kinase
  • ATPase
  • Na+/K+ ATPase

 

Other areas in which it plays a role:

  • Membrane function
  • Cell adhesion
  • Muscle contraction/relaxation
  • Neurotransmitter release
  • Structural function of the mitochondria


Magnesium plays a role in over 300 different reactions in the body and is commonly used as a calming supplement. However, additional research is needed to determine the validity of this usage, as well as efficacy.

 

Care should be taken, upon supplementation, to keep the Ca:Mg ratio at about 2:1.
