In order for a horse to perform at its best, it must be properly hydrated and receive adequate electrolytes. Horses are unique in that they cool their bodies primarily by sweating large amounts of body fluids. Therefore, water losses are significantly increased in the performance horse during hot weather and increased exertion.

However, water is not the only substance lost during sweating. Electrolytes are also lost in large quantities. The composition of equine sweat is very unusual due to its hypertonicity relative to plasma. This places even more importance on electrolyte replacement. Electrolyte Gold was developed to eliminate the worry of a potentially debilitating electrolyte deficiency in the performance horse. ELECTROLYTE GOLD is packaged in convenient single serving sachets and will "renew" horses during training. The addition of high levels of the antioxidant Vitamins E (1000iu) and C (750 mg) will also protect muscle tissue by eliminating "free radicals", harmful byproducts of exercise. Glycine and glucose improve the absorption rate of electrolytes in the gastrointestinal tract. Prolonged deficiencies of sodium and potassium in the horse disrupt normal body functions, therefore electrolyte gold should be given daily during times of hard work or racing, heat stress, diarrhea or irritability or nervousness.

Instructions for correct use: Horses in training / competition: 1 sachet of 50 g per day. In warm climates and horses in transit: 1 sachet of 50 g per day. Horses in light training: 1 sachet of 50 g every other day. Fresh drinking water should be available at all times. Why are electrolytes needed? A horse can show a tremendous tolerance for setbacks. So much so that they can survive a total loss of body fat and up to 50% loss of body protein. However, a loss of only 15% of body fluid is fatal. This clearly demonstrates the need to maintain the proper electrolyte/body fluid balance.

Thermoregulation & electrolytes The word electrolyte comes from two words. Elektron means "charged" and lyte means "dissolved in. The charged particles, which are dissolved in body fluids, are called ions, or more colloquially as body salts . All horses need electrolytes to live. In caring for an athletic horse, nutrients are needed in order of importance water electrolytes nutritional energy The reason electrolytes replace nutritional energy in order of importance is due to the requirements of thermoregulation. The exercise horse produces a tremendous amount of heat in the muscles. Heat is a byproduct of the conversion of potential energy into kinetic energy. This can raise the horse's body temperature at rest from 39 fromC to temperatures above 42?C in minutes.

The horse copes with this temperature increase by sweating large amounts of body fluids to stay cool. Thoroughbreds racing over distances of 1 to 2 miles can lose up to 10 liters of fluid during the warm-up, race and initial recovery period. The significant loss of fluid and electrolytes associated with sweating at this rate results in significant adverse effects on thermoregulatory and cardiovascular mechanisms.

Electrolytes are essential for water balance and muscle function. When a horse sweats it loses water, electrolytes and the protein foam. Sodium, bicarbonates, chloride and potassium are lost in the greatest amounts. Therefore, when considering an electrolyte mixture, the content of these electrolytes should be considered in particular. Magnesium and calcium are also very important electrolytes, which should be included in a commercial electrolyte supplement.

Electrolyte Gold is designed to replace these essential electrolytes, in the correct and balanced proportions, to maintain the integrity of physiological and biochemical processes in the body.

Electrolyte Gold is designed to replace these essential electrolytes, in the correct and balanced proportions, to maintain the integrity of physiological and biochemical processes in the body. Electrolyte requirements and losses are affected by: standard Type of work Fast (short duration/high intensity) Slow (long duration/low intensity) sweat Sweat output normal Heavy (10 - 30 liters/day) Very heavy (up to 60 liters/day) weather Climate conditions.

Temperature Relative Humidity Low sodium and chloride levels disrupt the fluid balance of horses, making it more difficult for their body tissues to retain water. When fluid loss is disrupted, they may sweat less or not at all. This can lead to the condition known as anhidrosis or "dry coat. A horse that is "deficient in electrolytes" may exhibit unusual eating habits, even going so far as to consume dirt and soil in search of electrolytes.

A prolonged lack of electrolytes can cause a horse to develop renal medullary leaching. The horse's ability to concentrate urine is reduced, resulting in a dramatic increase in both water intake and urine production. A horse working hard may need twice as much electrolyte as a horse resting. "Hardwork" simply defined, is work that causes the horse to sweat significantly. His neck, chest and sides are wet, not just a spot under his saddle. Electrolyte Gold is the optimal electrolyte supplement to use after hard work or racing.

What is the best method for feeding electrolytes? 1. When giving electrolytes, always use the basic idea; replace, replace, replace! A horse cannot be "loaded" with electrolytes in advance. Electrolytes, including sodium, chloride, potassium, bicarbonates, calcium and magnesium are water soluble. Therefore, any excess will be eliminated through the urinary tract. The body is a finely tuned machine that responds to biochemical feedback mechanisms that indicate when it is too low or too high on electrolytes.

This means that the body craves electrolytes when there has been a significant loss due to exercise, temperature, or stress, and will immediately eliminate the excess diet. For this reason, Electrolyte Gold is designed to be given after hard work or racing and competing. Reasons for fatigue in the performance horse. An electrolyte and water deficiency. Depletion of high energy phosphate reserves. Accumulation of lactate resulting in a drop in intracellular pH. Depletion of glycogen reserves.

How do the ingredients of Electrolyte Gold help the exercise horse?
Sodium Sodium maintains blood pressure, which is related to exercise potential. Sodium is lost in significant amounts in heavily sweating horses and dehydrated, diarrheic horses. Electrolyte Gold contains a high concentration of sodium to replace these losses. Potassium Like sodium, potassium helps osmotic regulation and works with sodium to activate the sodium-potassium pump. This active transport system is critical for the conduction and transmission of nerve impulses. Potassium is available in sufficient quantities to horses when they forage on fresh green grass. However, horses with stalls should be fed an electrolyte in the diet that contains an appropriate ratio of potassium to sodium and chloride. Calcium Calcium is a fundamental extracellular electrolyte. Calcium is also a cation that regulates membrane potential, which is crucial for muscle contraction and relaxation. Although calcium is relatively diluted in sweat, compared to chloride and sodium, its inclusion in Electrolyte Gold is no less important.

Calcium deficiencies can lead to serious cardiovascular disease. Magnesium is the second most abundant cation in intracellular fluid and is an essential electrolyte in the body. Magnesium is a cofactor in numerous enzyme systems and is involved in phosphate transfer, muscle contractility and neuronal transmission. Reduced magnesium levels usually cause neuromuscular excitability. Chloride Chloride is the major anion in extracellular fluid. A horse that sweats heavily loses large amounts of chloride. To maintain electrical neutrality, the horse will retain bicarbonate and metabolic alkalosis (pH> 7.3) may result.

Electrolyte Gold contains a potent source of chloride to maintain isotonic levels in the body. Chloride like sodium is necessary to maintain fluid balance in the body. Citrates are negatively charged molecules that help buffer a dietary electrolyte mix. Electrolyte Gold contains both bicarbonates and citrates to enhance this activity. Vitamin E is best known for its antioxidant effects. During intense exercise, muscle tissue is oxidized. This is a normal physiological function. However, by-products of oxidation called "free radicals" (toxins) are produced during muscle contraction. Vitamin E works by preventing a large accumulation of these debilitating toxins. Vitamin C Vitamin C is also an antioxidant vitamin, which works by protecting muscle tissue after intense exercise. Electrolyte Gold contains these two antioxidant vitamins to help with its primary role; to keep the training horse fresher longer. glycine Research has shown that this amino acid can improve the effectiveness of electrolyte supplements.
Studies in humans and animals have shown that electrolyte mixtures containing glycine and other amino acids work more efficiently and effectively.

The uptake of glucose has two functional roles. Glucose is a rapidly metabolized energy source. Glucose aids in the absorption of electrolytes. Genetics, breed and conformation are hugely consistent when training an animal. Unfortunately, these are considerations that must be worked with and cannot be changed. The best training method to use is subjective and will depend on the individual trainer.

Nutrition is a combination of nutritional and often personal choices. One factor that can have a huge impact on an animal's performance is electrolyte feeding. Major changes in fluid and electrolyte balance negatively impact athletic performance. Electrolyte Goldis a premium electrolyte supplement that should be given to training horses to ensure that lost electrolytes are replaced. Health and fitness come from within and therefore, to keep the horse's internal environment healthy, always provide unlimited electrolytes and fresh water.
