Tips for Best Results
Because every horse has unique challenges, we’ve created a system of calming formulas to help you bring the very best horse to your performance every time. Use Perfect Prep EQ Extreme alone or as part of the Perfect Prep Calming System. We strongly encourage you to evaluate the effects Perfect Prep EQ before your event to find the best product or combination of products to suit your horse’s needs.
Magnesium is an essential mineral in the horse that acts to stabilize the fright-flight reflex. It works on the cellular level in helping to allow insulin to store glucose and minimize the rapid changes in blood sugar that causes excitability. Magnesium in high levels is also effective at slowing the heart rate and relaxing muscles. Magnesium and Calcium, both essential minerals in the horse, are chemically very similar but have opposite effects at the cellular level: Calcium is primarily present outside the cell wall while magnesium is abundant inside the cell. Magnesium calms the nervous and cardio-vascular system; calcium excites nerves. Calcium is required for muscle contraction; magnesium causes muscle relaxation. In the performance equine, the additional stress created by training and performance causes an instant deficit in magnesium, and an over abundance of calcium, resulting in excitability, muscle cramps and stress overload.
Different forms of magnesium are absorbed in different parts of the digestive system. One of the benefits of the Perfect Prep EQ formula is that the appropriate magnesium compound is used in our formulas to produce optimum effect and quickly correct the imbalances in the calcium-magnesium ratio.
Inositol is a B vitamin that is required for proper formation of cell membranes. It is effective in Perfect Prep EQ formulas as a stabilizing element in the transmission of nerve impulses. Inositol provides an overall calming effect on the nervous system.
Thiamine is an essential B vitamin that is key in the digestion of polysaccharides. Large doses of thiamine are known to provide a high level of calming effect on the horse. Perfect Prep EQ products use effective levels of the most absorbable thiamine compounds to calm the nervous system and relax the horse.
L Tryptophan, a key ingredient in Perfect Prep EQ Extreme and Supreme, is an essential amino acid that is known to be converted in the body to serotonin, the chemical that produces a feeling of well being in mammals and induces sleep or drowsiness. It has more quieting effect when used on an empty stomach.
