Mare magic really does nothing, far as manipulating a mare's heat cycle, and why it is also effective on a gelding that lacks Magnesium. If a horse id defficient in Magnesium, they will be hyper reactive, and thus Mare Magic will work, as a mare will be more reactive when in heat
You can just buy bulk dried red Raspberry leaves in a health food store-cheaper
However, in mare that you wish to suppress heat completely, who is not Mg deficient, you will need to use something like Regumate
The name "Mare Magic', is rather deceiving, as it is just a general natural calming agent, and not something that actually manipulates the heat cycle itself

You have to always research what's in these 'natural' things - I often wonder how much 'success' is down to the placebo effect' which one research on joint supplements for mildly arthritic horses proved as the owners of the one's taking the 'placebo' recorded as much improvement as the ones on the actual supplement - and in fact neither showed any improvement
If the horse has a magnesium deficiency then Mare Magic will help though its likely not as high in magnesium as most of the dedicated supplements
Where there's a real need for hormonal intervention Regumate is the best way to go if you can afford it and are prepared to handle it with care
