A balanced mixture of important electrolyte ions for racing and performance horses. DOES NOT CONTAIN BICARBONATE.
ELECTROMIX ELECTROLYTES & SWEAT™ is formulated for horses that are subjected to continual periods of physical exertion resulting in body salt and fluid loss, helping to correct fluid balance and to assist in the prevention of dehydration. Sodium, potassium and chloride ions are the three ions that are predominantly lost in sweat. Calcium and magnesium play the role in neuromuscular transmission. Calcium is a nerve cell stabiliser. They are major body salts, responsible for control of osmotic pressure, acid-base equilibria in body fluids and the maintenance of electrolyte gradients within the tissues. In addition, sulfate and phosphate ions are essential in regulating of intra- & extracellular and plasma cation transport, and phosphate ion also helps maintain an alkaline reserve (buffering capacity) in the body to ensure normal physiological and metabolic function. The maintenance of correct fluid balance is critical to the performing athlete.
Adequate clean drinking water should be available at all times. When introducing this product to the horse for the first time, gradually increase the dose to the level required. One level plastic scoop (enclosed) holds around 45 g. LIGHT SWEATING: 40 g per day. Mix 20 g with feed twice daily or add to 10 L of drinking water. HEAVY SWEATING: 80 g per day. Mix 40 g twice daily mixed in feed or add 80g to 10 L of drinking water. AS A DRENCH, e.g. PRE- AND POST-RACE: 40 g in 1 L of water or 120 g by stomach tube in 4L of water.
