Horses are naturally fright and flight animals and can be prone to excitability and nervousness in unfamiliar surroundings (such as competition or new training venue) which can lead to spookiness and cause them to lose concentration and focus and result in undesirable behaviour.
Ingredients & Nutrition
Super So Kalm provides targeted nutrition with 4 key ingredients to support the horse in managing stress responses and supporting calm behaviour.
Magnesium is a vital micromineral and plays an important role in nerve function and muscle contraction, as well as its other jobs around the body. A lack of magnesium in the diet can result in neuro-muscular excitability and increase in anxiety.
Calcium works closely with Magnesium and also is key to maintaining correct muscle and nerve function.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) is important for nerve impulse transmission and cellular energy production.
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid in the horse’s diet that is required for the production of the important hormone serotonin, which is associated with mood and pleasure. L-tryptophan is included in Super So Kalm at a safe level to support the daily requirement, particularly in those sharp or anxious horses that are likely to be receiving minimal concentrates, and consequently may be receiving sub-optimal levels of this key amino acid.
All ingredients are selected to ensure they are fully compliant with the Rules of Racing and the FEI guidelines for Clean Sport.

Super So Kalm should be introduced gradually and fed at the recommended intake for at least 7 days before any stressful activity, and is safe to feed long term if required. May be reduced to 15g per day if desirable behaviour is maintained. Super So Kalm Powder is a low sugar and starch formulation, and therefore safe to feed to horses and ponies who require a low sugar diet.
