ELECTROMIX ELECTROLYTES & SWEAT™

EVERYDAY ELECTROLYTE SUPPLEMENT ENSURES THEY'RE READY FOR TRAINING & HEAVY WORK

wpe6.jpg (4045 bytes)All horses lose body salts in sweat, particularly when engaged in hard work.  Those receiving ongoing training for performance events or racing need the special care of daily electrolyte replacement to maintain body fluid balance and prevent dehydration.  Regular administration, prior to sweating, makes sure muscles can perform at optimum levels.

Horses need more than just one salt. ELECTROMIX ELECTROLYTES & SWEAT is bicarbonate free but contains a balanced mix of sodium, potassium, sulphate and chloride ions.  All of these salts are lost in sweat and when provided in correct ratios can improve stamina, leading to better performance.

For light and heavy sweaters simply vary the dose, there's no guesswork as optimum results at different dosage levels have already been determined.  ELECTROMIX ELECTROLYTES & SWEAT mixes easily into feed or water or can be used as a pre or post race drench.

PRESENTATION:  Palatable, free flowing powder for addition to daily feed,  for mixing with water, or as an electrolyte drench.

ACTIVE CONSTITUENTS: Each 40g dose contains:

SODIUM IONS 10.00g MAGNESIUM IONS 0.38G
POTASSIUM IONS 3.6g SULPHATE IONS 1.50g
CHLORIDE IONS 18.80g CALCIUM IONS 1.90g
PHOSPHATE IONS 0.26g

PROPERTIES: 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 predominately 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 equilbria in body fluids and the maintenance of electrolyte gradients within the tissues. In addition, sulphate and phosphorus ions are essential in regulating of intra- & extra cellular 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. Most racing and competing horses are able to maintain their acid/alkali balance when provided with an appropriate electrolyte mix such as ELECTROMIX ELECTROLYTES & SWEAT™ and free water access at all times.

It is  recommended to use ELECTROMIX ELECTROLYTES & SWEAT™ on a daily basis, complimented by the rehydration drink  HORSPORT REHYDRATION & RECOVERY which should be used following strenuous exercise to aid fluid replacement and fast recovery. NEUTRA -SYRUP NEUTRALISES & REMOVES™  and/or KA CLEANS & FLUSHES™ are also recommended for additional alkaline reserve and kidney flush to prevent acidosis of the blood following exercise, or where a horse has a history of "tying-up" during or after exercise/
