“The products truly work! The results are recognizable and substantial. I used Tranquility on my reining show horse needing to be rehabilitated from a bowed tendon and the results were remarkable. Jac went from an unmanageable horse to a very pleasant controlled citizen in just 3 days with Platinum Tranquility.”

Calming Formulas & Competition

At Platinum, no forbidden substance is ever added to a formula. However, because calming supplements may contain natural or plant-based ingredients (that can have naturally occurring substances that may or may not result in a positive test), we recommend that you discontinue use of supplements intended to calm 7 days prior to competition. If you have any questions, call and talk to a Platinum Advisor about the formulas you give to your competitive horse.

Calming Ingredients to Look For

Magnesium: A macromineral involved in both the nervous and muscular systems that is used as a first line of defense to support neuromuscular and behavioral sensitivities.

Calcium: It is important to keep the dietary calcium to magnesium ratio at about 2:1 so horses do not develop symptoms of muscle problems, irritability or hypersensitivity.

B Vitamins: Vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin B12 (cobalamin) are referred to as neurotropic B vitamins as they work together to promote nervous system health.

L-Theanine: A unique extract from green tea used by the brain to promote neurotransmitter production, relaxation and focus.

Magnolia Officinalis: Studies suggest this medicinal plant extract supports a normal stress response and promotes relaxation.

Phellodendron amurense: Combined with Magnolia officinalis, this bark extract supports a calming state as well as improving sleep.

A GI-Focused Approach to Calmness

Illness, stress, antibiotic use or a high-starch diet can compromise the delicate microbe population in the hindgut and impair the production of B vitamins which are important for normal nervous system function. Providing a daily source of pre- and probiotics along with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and trace minerals like what is found in Platinum Performance® GI can help to ensure horses have the B vitamins necessary to support calming.
