The iron content of this product based on the certificate analysis is 26ppm (0.0026%)  this is twenty times lower than the carbonate form which is typically  500ppm (0.05%), this is why we do not stock magnesium carbonate.

Learn about how to tell if the magnesium you are buying is of high purity and low in iron here.

We do not stock magnesium chloride because it is less palatable and you would have to feed 5 times more chloride than oxide to get the same elemental magnesium supplementation.

Note that our magnesium for horses tends to be priced higher than other sources due to the fact that we and other horse owners only buy the very best product with very low iron content.

We do not stock a number of magnesium oxide products because your horse’s health is too important.  Both the magnesium oxide which we sell as a separate and that which we use in our balancers are human pharmaceutical grade.

Magnesium for horses which is pure and low iron

Cheaper products on the market are likely to have high iron contamination, make sure you ask for a current specification to find out iron levels.

This product is useful to boost magnesium in the diets of all horses and is of potential benefit in the following scenarios:

  • Where a forage analysis shows extra magnesium is needed in addition to that contained in a mineral balancer.
  • Where horses are showing behaviour typical of a magnesium deficiency.
  • Where magnesium needs boosting in the diet of a horse prone to laminitis.

Forageplus does not advise the feeding of separate minerals unless levels have been checked through carrying out a forage analysis.  The ratios of minerals are important and feeding one mineral without supplementing correct levels of another can be detrimental to horse health.  If you are uncertain of mineral levels then feeding either a Forageplus Equine Balancer or carrying out analysis of forage is wise.

Find out why ratios of minerals fed are so important at Forageplus Talk.

Find out why we recommend feeding our low iron magnesium rather than magnesium chloride.

    I add this product to my ponies feed, I have experimented with removing it and my horses became fizzy & spooky again. Added it again and within a few weeks much more chilled. Also great for the metabolically challenged horses. Great quality I’d highly recommend

    Amazing product my horse wouldn’t be here today without him having this in his feed everyday. In the Spring/Summer time and times of high sugar in the grass I increase the amount he has. He is now able to go out hacking in the woods and walks everyday on stoney tracks and he’s barefoot. Helps so much with his EMS

    This is a great supplement for the hotter horses as it keeps them more laid back at home and out at events or arena hires when fed consistently in their feeds you really notice the difference.

    Like all FP products, the low iron magnesium is excellent quality and easy to order. All orders delivered in superquick time. My horses all look great on thoughtful nutrition.
