Rasberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) is an herb primarily used for its benefits to females. It is highly beneficial in tackling the moodiness sometimes caused by hormonal fluctuations in pregnant mares and young fillies coming into season for the first time.

The vitamins, mineral and plant compounds help the body to detoxify extra hormones.

relaxation. If there is not enough magnesium, muscles tend to spasm. Although the presence of low magnesium
in the muscle tissue may stem from a genetic disorder rather than dietary quantities, there are reports of
horses that have responded to magnesium supplementation for support of chronic tying-up.
