Topspec Electrolytes 3kg

TopSpec Electrolytes are designed to help compensate for electrolyte loss after heavy sweating.

This new additive has a high salt formula, contains wildberry to aid palatability and is recommended by equine veterinary practices and independent nutritionists.

What are electrolytes?

Some minerals are also called electrolytes. This is because when dissolved in body fluids they carry spare ions which give them an electrical charge.

Electrolytes use this charge to help control the water balance in a horse, trying to maintain a sufficiently hydrated status at all times. Electrolytes also play an important role in muscle function and through their role in hydration both temperature regulation and the transport of nutrients and waste products throughout the horse's body.

If electrolytes are not added to a horse's diet many problems may occur including dehydration or excessive hydration. Dehydration can be life-threatening and is frequently performance-limiting, with colic and 'Tying-Up' the most well-known consequences.

A horse has only to become mildly dehydrated in order to lose performance, sometimes reported as a lack of stamina and slow recovery rates. If the losses of electrolytes are very high a disruption in the balance of electrical charge both inside and outside of a muscle cell can upset normal contraction and relaxation processes.

TopSpec Electrolytes can be fed to horses to help compensate for electrolyte loss during sweating, with many resulting benefits.

The addition of salt to the diet should be sufficient for horses only sweating lightly. TopSpec Electrolytes should always be added in addition to any salt already in the diet and not instead of that salt. Salt-licks should always be available 24/7.

Divide the daily amount fed equally amongst meals and mix well. It is recommended that this electrolyte preparation is used for at least two days after sweating.
