The Ultimate Mental Health Supplement
- Promotes a calm temperament
- Supports a focused attitude
- Helps to maintain a quiet disposition
Tranquility™ is formulated to help horses that exhibit extreme signs of nervousness, anxiety, apprehension, lack of focus, and aggression in stressful situations. The active ingredients encourage the brain to boost levels of serotonin in order to promote a feeling of wellbeing and calm in some horses.
Tranquility™ supports mental focus during training and competition. This may help the horse to concentrate on the task at hand rather than be distracted by outside factors. When high levels of performance are critical, the natural ingredients may assist your horse in maintaining a healthy and willing attitude.
Tranquility™ is also suggested for horses in rehabilitation, injured horses on stall rest or horses that stall walk, weave or crib. This supplement encourages a relaxed mental attitude, which may reduce the mental stress of confinement.
In people, Tryptophan and Vitamin D3 act as precursors to increase levels of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is considered the feel good hormone -- it is what human doctors are trying to emulate when they prescribe Prozac™. Vitamin D3 is recommended for all horses with no direct exposure to sunlight.
Choline and Inositol help to promote mental clarity and efficiency. Choline is the precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Glutamic Acid, the precursor to Gama Amino Butyric Acid encourages the body to soak up excess adrenaline and support calm and relaxed behavior. Magnesium is one of the electrolytes needed for muscle function and is also considered a calming mineral by veterinarians.
While Brewer’s Yeast is not considered an active ingredient, it is high in all of the B vitamins, which are associated with cellular energy, blood sugar regulation (to prevent mood swings) and balancing cortisol levels. Cortisol is commonly known as our stress hormone.
Many horses tested with Horse Hair Analysis consistently show severe nutritional deficiencies in the four electrolyte minerals, zinc and copper. About 50% also have a toxic metal present in their body, such as mercury or lead, that must be chelated from the body in order to regain optimal health. These imbalances have a direct impact on attitude and willingness to perform their job. For more information on Horse Hair Analysis, click here.
Proper diet also has an immense effect on maintaining a healthy mental attitude. The Health Library contains informative articles on these topics in the Nutrition categories.
