Revolutionary Calming Support for The Nervous Horse

SmartPak introduces new SmartCalm Ultimate to SmartSupplement Line

If your horse displays excessively nervous, reactive, or spooky behavior, a calming supplement — when paired with proper management and training — may offer them the support they need. When it comes to supplements, SmartPak is excited to introduce SmartCalm® Ultimate Pellets, a new revolutionary calming support formula.

“Some horses can become extra tense and anxious during certain parts of the year (such as the colder months) or in stressful situations,” said Dr. Lydia Gray, SmartPak’s staff veterinarian – research and medical director. “First work with professionals like your veterinarian and trainer to address health concerns, diet and exercise, and any training issues, then consider adding a calming supplement like SmartCalm Ultimate Pellets to support the horse’s confidence and focus.”

Calming supplements work by providing vitamins and minerals which help bridge the gap with deficiencies in the diet that may interfere with proper nervous system function. Some products in this same category also contain adaptogenic botanicals that help horses maintain composure under stress. SmartCalm Ultimate Pellets provide these two categories of ingredients (nutrients and herbs) to help horses deal with excess anxiety and to support a calm demeanor.

This revolutionary formula goes a step further by including adaptogens like Siberian ginseng, Schisandra chinensis (also known as the “Five-Flavor Fruit”), and Rhodiola rosea (aka “Golden Root”). It also incorporates KSM-66® Ashwagandha, shown by research[1] to help horses cope with stress related to travel, training, and social changes. These adaptogens help keep the body’s systems in balance and in doing so they help to support a variety of functions, including nervous system health and emotional balance.

With the introduction of this supplement, SmartCalm Ultimate Pellets rounds out a complete selection of the SmartCalm line. Like all SmartSupplements, SmartCalm Ultimate Pellets are Guaranteed to Work, and come in a tasty pellet form that is picky eater approved.
