In unknown or stressful situations, such as transport or treatment by the vet, dentist or farrier, a horse can experience stress and instinctively want to flee. The amount of stress horses experience is not always the same and depends, among other things, on their character and experience. Unfortunately, it is sometimes unavoidable that your horse is exposed to a stressful situation. In that case, Pavo BeChill can help to quickly reduce stress (within 30 minutes – 2 hours) and promote relaxation.
Supplement to reduce stress
A stress response in the horse's body is influenced by signal substances that are sent to and from the brain. In principle, these signal substances can send two messages: a stress message (watch out, danger!) and a relaxation message (keep calm, don't panic). You can recognize an increasing amount of stress messages by an increased heart rate, faster breathing, sweating and tense muscles. On the other hand, when the amount of relaxation messages is increased, the heart and breathing rate return to normal and the muscles become loose and supple. In stressful situations, stress messages rise and relaxation messages fall. This ensures that your horse is more alert and ready to run. Pavo BeChill works on both sides: on the one hand it limits the increase of stress messages and on the other hand blocks the breaking down of relaxation messages.
Magic ingredients: lemon balm & magnesium
The main ingredients of Pavo BeChill are lemon balm and magnesium. Lemon balm is a natural ingredient with a powerful effect and has a major effect on the stress response in horses. It ensures that the breakdown of relaxation messages is blocked, leaving more relaxation in the body. Magnesium is one of the most well-known ingredients that help stressed and nervous horses. In addition, it has been proven that the concentration of cortisol (stress hormone) is significantly lower after administering magnesium. Magnesium helps block the production of stress messages, reducing the body's signals to increase heart rate and respiration, to sweat and to tighten muscles.
