98.7% of the magnesium from GastroPower™ is solubilized within 8 hours in the stomach.
Magnesium (Mg) plays a number of important roles in your horse's body. In the muscles, it attaches to ATP so that the ATP can be used by the muscle cells. If the Mg is not present, the ATP cannot be used, and the muscle would not be able to generate energy to carry out any functions.
It also plays a role in the horse's blood, as well as acting as an activator for many enzymes throughout the body. It is necessary for many of the enzymes that work with ATP.
Almost 60% of the Mg in the horse's body is in his skeleton, while another 30% is found in the muscles. The other 10% is found in various areas, including the blood and liver.
