MAH Liquid Horse Calmer
For daily problems hacking, schooling, stabling, handling, muscle tension, mares, stallions, breaking, box rest, seasonal anxiety etc.
Our renowned calming supplement for horses encourages positive, workable behaviour without compromising performance. MAH® is an advanced magnesium compound that is easy and flexible to feed, with advice on hand every step of the way.
The unique quality of Nupafeed MAH® Magnesium Horse Calmer lays in the way it is refined. The German pharmaceutical company, Verla-Pharm, pioneered the method of refining magnesium to create Magnesium-L-aspartate-hydrochloride, MAH®.
A completely different and superior grade of magnesium to that used in other supplements, MAH® is exclusive to Nupafeed. Verla-Pharm has been supplying the medical industry with their highly acclaimed products since 1949 and the equine market for the past 30 years.
Nupafeed MAH® calming supplements do not contain L-Tryptophan, herbs or any ingredient that may compromise performance. Our goal is to support healthy muscle and nerve function, rather than creating an artificial calm.
All animals need to have the correct balance of calcium and magnesium. When a horse is highly strung or becomes stressed, anxious, nervous or excited, magnesium is depleted. As a result, calcium is allowed to overload muscle and nerve cells, triggering the release of stress hormones and excitatory chemicals. This can cause stress, erratic behaviour, aggression and/or muscle tension.
Nupafeed MAH® Calmer uses a water soluble, complex, pure, amino magnesium which is able to enter the horse’s system very efficiently and absorb into tissue. By encouraging a healthy balance of calcium and magnesium, MAH® helps to keep your horse on an even keel, without compromising performance.
This graph demonstrates the absorption rates of different magnesium salts into animal’s intestinal tract, showing the efficiency of Magnesium Aspartate-Hydrochloride (MAH). When other magnesium supplements plateau, MAH® is shown to continue absorbing. Please note that magnesium oxide is not included because it is very poorly absorbed.
MAH® magnesium has been developed not only for improved absorption, but to prevent disruption to the body’s pH and ion balance. Because of its unique composition, MAH® does not alter blood or urinal pH and does not hinder the absorption of other minerals, as other forms of magnesium do.
MAH® is ideal for any stress related behaviour, for horses or ponies in any discipline of competition. Our client base includes professional and Olympic level riders, National Hunt and Flat yards, vets and horse owners who wish for a stress free hack.
Nupafeed MAH® Liquid Horse Calmer can be added to your normal feeding regime. As the compound is totally safe, it allows the feeding level to be adjusted, enabling owners to find a level that suits each individual animal.
MAH® Feeding Information
You will receive full information and instructions with your first order and you can always contact us if you would like further advice, but this is some general information to help you when ordering.
MAH Liquid for Calming
It is usually easiest to add MAH to your horses daily feed, but it can also be given by oral syringe.
Most horses require an initial loading amount. The loading amount for a horse is 50ml three times daily or 75ml twice daily. Ponies require smaller amounts.
Most horses need between three and ten days on loading before they begin to settle. At this point you can begin to cut back to find a level which is right for your horse. This will vary from horse to horse as well as being dependant on size.
Maintenance level is approximately 5ml per 100kg, in other words 25ml for a 500Kg horse. Some horses require more.
Please note that the initial loading amount means that your first 1ltr will be used quickly. For this reason, we recommend the 3ltr which is more economical and may be required to ensure enough loading for sharper horses.
Horses on the liquid can be put back on the loading amount in the lead up to competition or time of stress. They then usually just need a single MAH Concentrated Syringe given an hour and a half before stress.
Small ponies can be given a half Syringe in place of a full.
MAH Liquid to Support the Metabolism
Feed MAH Liquid at a level of 5ml per 100kg bodyweight per day in addition to a fully balanced diet. During problem times, this level can be fed twice daily.
Give with the usual daily feed - ideally splitting the total amount into morning and evening. For ponies receiving no feed at all, you can give MAH by oral syringe or even dilute it with water and add to hay.
Nupafeed MAH will not cause lethargy in ponies that do not have behavioural issues.
Nupafeed MAH can be given alongside medications such as ACP and Bute. If you have any concerns always consult your vet.
MAH Liquid for Seasonal Anxiety
Start with the loading amount as normal and see how you get on, once you have seen an improvement you can cut back to find a daily level that suits.
It is usually best to continue to give MAH twice daily, but you may wish to give more in the morning before riding.
Be advised that these horses typically need to be maintained on a higher daily feeding level, but you should find that you can vary the amount that they get, reducing during more problem free conditions. Some horses can be taken off MAH over the winter or a problem free season.
