Why Should I use Chelated Calcium as a Calmer?

Published 27th October 2016

First off, let’s start by rephrasing the above – it should read something more along the lines of ‘Why should I use Chelated Calcium as a behavioural supplement?’

Due to the way we understand Chelated Calcium works, we prefer to refer to it as a behavioural supplement – why? Well calmers often conjure images of sedation and that’s absolutely not what we’re about, nor what Chelated Calcium does.

So what does it do exactly? How can it work if it’s not sedating and therefore making my horse calm? (which, by the way is a sequence of events that rarely happens…would you feel calm if you were sedated and then asked to perform a number of tasks?).

The active ingredient in Cool, Calm & Collected is patented Chelated Calcium technology, we believe this has an influence on cellular signalling.

It is understood that this is a process used all across the body for many reasons including; initiating the release of neurotransmitters and ensuring ‘messages’ are passed on correctly from one nerve cell to another.

Put less scientifically, we believe the Chelated Calcium in Cool, Calm & Collected is optimising brain function – we’re talking food for the brain here! So we have a horse who is better able to make rational decisions, be logical, focused and level-headed.

A horse that feels better able to cope with its surroundings, is generally a more relaxed, happy and level-headed. No ridiculous spooking at a leaves or having a meltdown about a plant pot.
