    In Dr.Weyrauch No. 7 Fountain of Youth, magnesium is embedded in a specially designed herbal formula of hawthorn, galangal, rosemary, gingko and lemon balm. The combination with natural vitamin E, mangosteen extract and grape seeds has created a highly efficient nutritional supplement for horses that is particularly rich in antioxidant nutrients. These include oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC), catechins (anthocyanidins), polyphenols and quercetin. The binder-, flavor- and additive-free preparation, the citrate form of the magnesium and the use of only natural vitamin E make No. 7 Fountain of Youth an excellent feed supplement for horses, especially for active seniors or young horses in training. The need for vitamin E increases significantly due to particular sporting challenges, during growth and in training situations, during forced muscle development and in old age. Half of the vitamin E in the body is found in the mitochondria, the cell's power plants, where fat is constantly converted into energy. Here there is a constant risk of toxic peroxides being produced during periods of high performance. The more energy has to be generated (high-performance athletes, stress), the more glucose and fat are oxidized and the higher the risk of destructive free radicals being produced. Vitamin E therefore provides important protection for energy and fat metabolism. This makes vitamin E the cell protection vitamin par excellence. Another effect of vitamin E is to protect against inflammation in the joints (e.g. in arthritis) through its role as an inhibitor of pro-inflammatory substances (leukotrienes). The need for vitamin E increases in diseases in which inflammation plays a role, such as laminitis, tendon injuries or muscle inflammation. In the event of a vitamin E deficiency, the cells can no longer be adequately protected. Natural vitamin E is far superior to synthetic vitamin E. In contrast to the synthetic vitamin E usually used in animal feed, natural vitamin E is characterized by the fact that it can be detected in the periphery and in the blood for a very long time. This high availability is already evident with moderate amounts. Synthetic vitamin E, on the other hand, is only 50% effective (Schmidt and Schmidt, "Leitfaden der Mikronährstoffe", Verlag Urban und Fischer 2004). Older horses and seniors in particular are characterized by a nutrient deficiency of the above-mentioned nutrients. This often manifests itself in tarnished forelegs and reluctance to move despite the warm weather. A balanced feed and nutrient supply gives older horses in particular the chance of a carefree life and activity into old age. Frequently recurring colic, heavy defecation with solid apples, anxiety, sensitivity to the weather and cardiovascular problems, as well as thirst, excessive sweating and muscle tension can be an indication of a magnesium deficiency in horses. magnesium's role in muscle metabolism is to reduce the influx of calcium into the muscle cells and thus relax the muscle. A magnesium deficiency can therefore lead to tension and cramps. This can affect the skeletal muscles or the heart as a so-called hollow muscle. Magnesium deficiencies can also manifest themselves as spasms of the smooth muscles. Smooth muscles cannot be controlled by the conscious mind and are found in internal organs such as the intestines, respiratory tract, blood vessels, urinary and genital organs. Magnesium deficiencies in the blood count (values below 0.7 mmol/l) must be taken very seriously, as the magnesium reserves in the bones have already been progressively activated.
