    Description

    Distinctive in its blue and black bag, Equilibrium B1 Cool Mix is a complete supplement recommended for nervous or excitable horses. Containing the same ingredients as its Equilibrium Mineral Mix stable mate, B1 Cool Mix does not contain ingredients that will make your horse sleepy or lethargic. Where nervousness or excitability is brought on by nutritional issues, our B1 Cool Mix product maybe able to help. Based on our own observations, as well as on feedback from many customers that we’ve spoken to over the years, the horses for which B1 Cool Mix works seem to able to think better in circumstances that would otherwise be daunting or frightening.

    Equilibrium B1 Cool Mix was initially developed for a show jumping horse that was competing at World Cup level. The sights and sounds of royal shows always present a challenging environment to horses, none more so to a horse that suffers nervousness or excitability. Mulberry Road was one such horse that turned in erratic performances as a result of his nerves and it was after adding B1 Cool Mix to his feed that his consistency improved and he started turning in some very pleasing results.

    COMPOSITION

    The rates of inclusion of  these nutritional elements is on a per kilogram basis. To calculate how much of a particular element would be in each scoop, divide the per kg value by 14.3.

    Geeking Out About Ingredients

    It is important to note that the listing in our composition is for the elements that are of nutritional value to horses. This is why when the values are added up, they do not equal 1kg.

    For example, Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) is a useful ingredient to supplement calcium in the diet. The Calcium component of Calcium Carbonate only accounts for 40.08% of the total mass, the other 59.98% is Carbon and Oxygen. So let’s pretend Equilibrium had a new Calcium product that was made from 100% Calcium Carbonate (we don’t), we would declare 401g of Calcium on the composition because this is the nutritional element most relevant to horses.

    Breaking down the respective weights of atoms in a Calcium Carbonate molecule.
    NUMBER OF ATOMS ATOM MOLAR MASS SUBTOTAL MASS SUBTOTAL MASS
    g/mol % g/mol
    1 Ca (Calcium) 40.08 40.04 40.08
    1 C (Carbon) 12.01 12.00 12.01
    3 O (Oxygen) 16.00 47.96 48.00
    Total Molecular Weight 100.09

    The data for the table above was sourced from the molecular weight calculator at this page: Lenntech – Molecular Weight Calculator. Try it for yourself by clicking the link and inputting CaCO3 into the chemical formula box.

    The ingredients selected for inclusion in Equilibrium supplements were hand picked because of the nutritional value they provide to horses. Our products contain no fillers or bulking ingredients!
