Thia-Cal contains high amounts of Vitamin B1, as well as calcium and magnesium, which interact with the Vitamin B to enhance its effectiveness. Potassium is also included because it helps to protect your horse against muscle weakness, nervousness, and irritability.

Thiamine, also known as Vitamin B1, is necessary to keep the brain healthy and alert. The brain is very sensitive to a deficiency of thiamine, and can result in irritability and neuralgia, which is pain that follows nerve pathways and causes increased sensitivity. Thiamine aids in the brain's metabolism, and a fall in the blood sugar level leads to an immediate reduction of oxygen consumption in the nerve cells, which is called hypoglycemia, and can also result in nerve irritability.

Thiamine plays a key role in the health of the nervous system. It allows proper development of myelin sheaths, which are the fat-like coverings that surround most nerves. When there is a Thiamine shortage, these coverings can degenerate, which can result in prickly sensations and pain. Another connection between the nervous system and Thiamine involves its role in the production of a specific neurotransmitter, which is used by the nervous system to send messages between the nerves and muscles. That neurotransmitter, called Acetylcholine, cannot be produced without adequate supplies of Thiamine.

I moved and had to switch trainors. My gelding had a difficult time with the move, and was really nervous, was having trouble jumping, responding to me, etc. After a month on this stuff, he's doing so much better. I took him off for a few days to see if it was just because he was getting more used to things, but he got the nerves again. This really makes a difference, and he likes the taste, seems to be eating a little better than before too.
