1 bottle = 40 x 25ml calms

Each Bottle Contains

Magnesium

Karma contains a superior, water-soluble form of magnesium that can be quickly absorbed into the blood stream. Magnesium is known as the anti-stress mineral. This key mineral is essential to the nervous system of the horse. Magnesium is used by the horse to regulate blood pressure to maintain a healthy, settled nervous system. It also helps to relax muscle. Magnesium is stored in the bones and in the gut. Many sources of magnesium available to the horse are insoluble and therefore unable to easily pass into the bloodstream. When stressed, horses can quickly use up their available stores of magnesium.

Vitamin C

Karma is enriched with Vitamin C. This antioxidant is vital to horses under stress from exercise, training, a new environment, a change in routine, diet or other events such as foaling, weaning and competing. Vitamin C helps to mop-up free radicals and so maintains health and assists the horse to overcome stressful situations. The Vitamin C in Karma is soluble and so rapidly absorbed by the horse.

L-tryptophan

Karma is enhanced with L-tryptophan. This essential amino acid is required for the formation of proteins and some hormones, including serotonin. Serotonin is the ‘feel-good’, ‘anti-stress’ hormone.

Niacin (Vitamin B3)

Niacin is a B complex vitamin required for optimum energy and protein utilisation, allowing energy to be channelled into the appropriate areas. The soluble source of niacin used in Karma is readily utilised by the horse.

Vanilla

Vanilla makes Karma smell and taste delicious for even the fussiest feeder.

Potassium Sorbate

Sorbate is a natural preservative found in fruits that keeps Karma in perfect condition.

Karma Uses

Competitions

Karma can help the horse to relax and be less tense without affecting energy or stamina and so aids the horse in performing to its full potential.

Showing

Invaluable for the novice pony or horse and for one that knows its job too well. Also for those that are to be ridden by inexperienced or young riders.

Box rest

Many horses and ponies find box rest extremely stressful. Karma will help them to accept their confinement and so play a vital part in their recovery.

Sensible horses and ponies

Although originally developed for the more difficult equine, riders have also used it on their problem-free horses, and their performance and results have improved.

Mares

Many normally sweet-tempered mares become difficult when in season, but if fed Karma they are more likely to stay on an even keel. Weaning: Weaning can be a stressful time for both the mare and the foal; feed Karma to both, starting 2 weeks before weaning and continuing for 2 weeks after.

Hacking

Gradually helping build up confidence. The horse or pony may still respond to frightening objects and sudden movements, but the response will be less as their confidence grows.

Racing

Many horses lose the race before it’s run. Given Karma, horses may cope better with travelling, the parade ring and even the stalls, conserving their energy for the race itself. Clipping, the dentist and the farrier: Many horses get worried at these times. Double, or in really bad cases, treble the dose for 4 days prior, making sure the last dose is given at a quiet time, about 45 minutes before the appointment.

Transporting

Give 75 – 100ml 45 minutes before leaving; a top-up can be given during the journey in severe cases.

Stable vices

Give Karma daily. Horses may stop box walking, crib biting and weaving when calmer and less stressed.

Difficult temperament

Some horses are genetically predisposed to being difficult, others have good reason to be nappy, bad tempered and unpredictable after being mishandled. It is always worth giving them the benefit of the doubt and with patience, good training and handling, and with the help of modern nutrition, these horses now have the best chance to redeem themselves.

Difference between Karma and Applecalm

30th Nov 2014
A. Watson

I was wondering if there is a difference between Bluechip Karma and Bluechip applecalm? Can the Karma be given just before a ride or should it be fed daily? I'm looking for something to calm my youngster when hacking. Also could you clarify if this reduces energy levels? I recently used a different version expecting my horse to be a bit sedate but he was still full of beans and spooking, i was wondering if he just had slightly more confidence? I'm not sure what to expect...

  • Prescription and Medication Manager

Blue Chip Karma is a supplement to help with highly strung, nervous or difficult horses. For best results you would use it daily to help keep your horse calm. Where as Blue Chip Applecalm is used as an instant calmer, so ideally you would use it one hour before you wanted the desired effect. If you wanted you can use both supplements together keeping your horse on a regular calmer daily and then for hacking you can top up with some extra Applecalm.

It wont reduce energy levels, it works via magnesium. Magnesium is known as the anti-stress mineral, this is very important in any calmer. The higher the magnesium the better the results.

It could be a case of him feeling more confident as you hack him out more often. The other reason his energy levels could be higher could be from the hard feed and hay/haylage you are feeding. Ideally you want a feed that is low in protein as this will give him more energy.
