Whilst many supplement manufacturers work to least cost formulation, Scotmin consider it more important to use the highest quality and most bioavailable raw materials at levels required by the animal.

AGMA FG85 Calcined Magnesite is the leading magnesium source on the market and has been used in the manufacture of our supplements for over 25 years. Not only does it have high magnesium content but studies carried out by Glasgow University show AGMA to be the markets most bio-available and consistent product

(Parker & Hemingway 1989, Parker, Ritchie & Hemingway 1989).

A more recent study conducted in Holland showed that 50% more magnesium was absorbed by animals fed AGMA compared to those fed Chinese Cal Mag.

The very consistent particle size found in AGMA is the single most important factor influencing its efficacy.  Our phosphorus sources are chosen for their consistently high purity and have superior biological value to most of the phosphorus sources on the market.
