Quiessence®

Quiessence 

What is Quiessence®?

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 If enough is withdrawn, muscle Magnesuim levels drop, resulting in neuromuscular problems.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.
