ProKalm has recently been rated the UK's Number 1 in a survey of over 1500 participants and is an innovation in helping horses and ponies perform to their potential. In 3 clinical trials, ProKalm has been shown to reduce itching, improve dressage scores for motions related to relaxation and extension, and reduce stereotypical behaviors like wind-sucking, cribbing, weaving, and stall walking. Using a unique formulation, ProKalm acts rapidly - in as little as 30 minutes - with the effects lasting up to 8 hours. At low intake, ProKalm is perfect for "taking the edge off". At moderate and high intake, ProKalm is suitable for more demanding or stressful situations. A unique combination of herb extracts and amino acids, but does not contain valerian, magnesium, or tryptophan. ProKalm does not sedate or affect gait or performance, but helps relax and focus the horse.
Why not magnesium? There is no scientific evidence that magnesium has any calming effect in horses
Why not valerian? It is illegal under FEI and rules of racing
Why not tryptophan? Tryptophan signals to the body that it is exhausted and has a negative effect on performance.
Are any ingredients not allowed under FEI or USEF rules? ProKalm ingredients are all approved under FEI rules. As of 2020 under USEF rules, ProKalm requires a 7 day wash out period before competition.
However well you manage horses, stressful triggers can cause difficult or even dangerous behaviors. Anxiety, management, or environmental changes may lead to undesirable behaviors when stalled or at pasture, and some horses may become difficult to train, handle, or ride due to their lack of focus or their tension level. Some horses benefit from enticing a calming sense to help them have more reasonable responses to stimuli or changes or to help them deal with unavoidable stressors.
ProKalm is perfect for "taking the edge off" for horses who are anxious or tense. At moderate and high intake, ProKalm is suitable to help ease reactivity during more demanding situations. ProKalm is available as a daily feed supplement or as a syringe and can be fed as required, for isolated situations, or on a daily basis for more consistent results. The powder and syringe can be used simultaneously if needed.
The effects of a single dose can begin within 30 minutes and last for up to 8 hours. The amount given can be varied to get the desired effect, and some horses require a higher rate than others. For a strong effect, e.g. to clip, shoe, stall unexpectedly, or horses that are overly active during turn out, the maximum recommended amount for your horse’s weight within at least 30min of trigger activity. For a mild-moderate effect, e.g. for riding, travelling, etc., give the minimum recommended amount around 1-2h before peak effect is required. For sustained results over time, use the powder on a daily basis.
