Quiessence® is a Magnesium and Chromium formula designed to support calm, balanced behavior in equines. It may also help animals who are cresty-necked to reduce the crest, and may help reduce the tendency to founder by supporting normal glucose metabolism and increasing peripheral circulation. Quiessence® is natural and legal, with no known side effects.
 

Quiessence® provides 5g Magnesium (4g from Magnesium Oxide, and 1g from Chelated Magnesium), and 1.25mg of Chromium Piccolinate per 1 ounce measure in a palatable, pelleted base of distiller's grains.


 

Horses that may benefit from Quiessence®:

• Horses with obesity problems
• Easy keepers on a hay only diet
• Horses whose main diet consists of preserved and processed feed stuff
• Horses grazing land known to be low in magnesium
• Horses grazing on acid soils
• Horses who have problems gaining or maintaining weight
• Horses prone to or at risk for founder
• Horses prone to cresty necks
• Horses with nerve conditions
• Nervous, tense horses that show an inability to learn and concentrate
• Horses with tight tense muscles that are slow to warm up and have sore or tight backs


 

Is your horse at risk for Magnesium deficiency?

Magnesium deficiency usually shows as nervousness, muscular tension, inability to relax, irritability, hyper-sensitivity to touch or sounds, and poor memory retention. Some causes of Magnesium deficiencies:
 

• Equine diets are often low in Magnesium, especially if the animal is in work, kept in stables, and fed preserved, processed foodstuffs.
• High stress lifestyles lead to an increased need for Magnesium.
• Areas with acid soils and soft water may not provide enough Magnesium in water and soil.
• A diet high in alfalfa hay may require more Magnesium to balance the Calcium-to-Magnesium ratio.

 

Why Magnesium and Chromium?

Magnesium works closely with Potassium and Calcium in cells, and a deficiency of Magnesium often results in low interstitial Potassium and the corresponding symptoms. Muscles are the main body store for Magnesium and, if there is a deficiency in the diet, the body draws Magnesium from the muscles. If enough is withdrawn, muscle Magnesuim levels drop, resulting in neuromuscular problems. Therefore, horses and ponies who are nervous, tense, show an inability to learn and concentrate, have tight, tense muscles, are slow to warm up and have sore or tight backs can show improvement when given Quiessence®.

 

It has also been found that giving additional Magnesium and Chromium to cresty, insulin-resistant, founder-prone horses and ponies may help reduce the tendency to founder. Magnesium supports peripheral circulation to the extremities, which may ease sore feet and promote healing in foundered animals. Chromium has been shown to improve glucose clearance by improving insulin sensitivity in various classes of livestock. Quiessence® provides high levels of Magnesium and Chromium in a pelleted form.

 

In a study we conducted in 2002/2003, founder prone horses with thick, cresty necks showed a reduction in neck thickness and hardness when fed a magnesium supplement. The reduction in neck thickness made the horses easier to manage and ride and handle as well being more aesthetically pleasing.
 


Quiessence® provides 5g Magnesium (4g from Magnesium Oxide, and 1g from Chelated Magnesium), and 1.25mg of Chromium Piccolinate per 1 ounce measure in a palatable, pelleted base of distiller's grains.


 

Quiessence® contains:
Magnesium Oxide, Chelated Magnesium, Sodium Chloride, Chromium Piccolinate, Ameribind (binder), Flavoring, Distillers Grains, Powersweet, Vegetable Oil, Wheat Mids.


 


Directions for Use: Administer 1oz per 250lbs. body weight per day to start. Drop to ½ oz per 250lbs body weight per day when improvement is evident. Adjust accordingly for different body weights and results.

 

May be given on an as needed basis as well.

    Comments about Quiessence:

    I have a very hot mustang who is also an easy keeper. I purchased this mainly to calm her down, and was hoping it took care of her cresty neck as well. I noticed a difference after several weeks of use, she was much more relaxed on trails. Even the people I ride with noticed a change in her too, because we didn't have to be circling the entire time. Didn't circle at all actually! So far she's been on it 3 months, and I haven't noticed that her cresty neck is lessening, but I love the calming results!

    Comments about Quiessence:

    When I bought my young horse he had tight muscles and was described as being cold backed and crabby and sensitive to grooming. Being only 4 years old, I knew there was an underlying problem. After learning about Quiescence I began supplementing him daily and could not believe the results, he became a different horse. No more irritability, touchy for saddling or grooming or stiff muscles. I can't believe how well this product worked to help my horse. My horse will never go without it.

      Comments about Quiessence:

      I used this product on my "hot" mare for shows and it seems to take the edge off and make her more reasonable. She still likes to look for drama but doesn't act on it when I give her this supplement. It's said to make recovery time better and she never seems sore after working hard when on it. I kept her on it for several months last year but this year I only give it the week leading up to and during shows and feel I get the same result.

        Comments about Quiessence:

        For years I have tried different supplements to help my mare calm down. She can get very excited and hot, very forward thinking, prancey, and on leisurely trail rides she makes us look like a circus act. No more! She acts like a normal horse now, calm, relaxed, centered, and reasonable. I really noticed a difference into the 2nd bag, and I just ordered my 3rd bag. I feed her a scoop in the morning and one at night along with her hay. She loves it, eats every little pellet, so no issues trying to get her to eat it. She is an easy keeper, and has a huge cresty neck (see pic), so I am hoping it will help with that over time too. Granted she is a mustang, and possibly has some draft in her lineage to attribute her stockiness too as well, but I would like to get her weight down a bit, and I can't cut down her hay any more (she's on one flake twice a day of grass hay). I will continue to purchase this supplement.

          My horse is insulin resistant and requires magnesium supplementation. I couldn't find any other magnesium supplement he would eat.
