Nutrients as Healthy Nerve Regulators
Compose®2x utilizes the three nutrients L-tryptophan, magnesium, and thiamin (Vitamin B1). These nutrients act as nerve regulators and are combined in a palatable and highly digestible alfalfa based pellet.
L-tryptophan: An Important Essential Amino Acid
L-tryptophan (pronounced "trip'-toe-fan") is one of the essential amino acids. Essential amino acids can not be manufactured in the body of animals, and must be ingested in the diet for animals to survive. L-tryptophan is a building block of a chemical in the body responsible for the transmission of nerve signals through the brain.
A deficiency of L-tryptophan has been reported to lead to nervousness and anxiety in animals. Animal proteins and milk contain adequate tryptophan, therefore meat eating animals consume sufficient tryptophan in their diet. However, the plant proteins of grains and hay in equine diets are low in tryptophan content.
Thiamin: Important in Energy Metabolism
Thiamin is important in energy metabolism. Deficiencies cause mental confusion, muscular weakness, and ataxia (failure of muscular coordination).
Magnesium: An Essential Part of Enzyme Systems
Magnesium is an essential part of many enzyme systems. It is especially important in maintaining electrical potential in nerves and muscle membranes.
