MellowMAX™ Alfalfa is designed to complement an alfalfa based diet. Alfalfa supplies a lot of calcium in ratio to the phosphorus and magnesium it contains. This can cause serious imbalances leading to growth and nervous problems. MellowMax™ Alfalfa provides the phosphorus and magnesium from bioavailable sources to aid in balancing your horse’s diet. MellowMAX™ Alfalfa is a complete, all-in-one supplement that needs nothing extra added to it besides hay and a little grain to maintain condition.
Horses fed 8 pounds of alfalfa hay or more per day, receive an abundance of calcium. The resulting surplus of calcium can ‘tie up’ the availability of other essential minerals and trace elements like phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, zinc and so on. Excess calcium (or any deviation from the from the ideal ratio of calcium to phosphorus) should always be avoided in growing animals.
Since high levels of calcium in the diet and stress from hauling and competition deplete magnesium levels we have added more bioavailable magnesium. This helps muscles stay relaxed and soothes the nervous system
