Did you know there are a variety of benefits of an Electrolyte Supplement for Your Horse?
Electrolyte supplements are often seen as a product for high-output horses. However, a horse sweating in the hot sun for long periods of time, or that performs in a manner that causes them to sweat excessively, is at risk for losing critical minerals. Such a loss can lead to fatigue, muscle aches, psychological concerns – including exhaustion, and more.
What Are Electrolytes?
What are electrolytes? As described on equusmagazine.com…
Electrolytes are common minerals that in their solid forms bond readily into salts, such as sodium chloride (better known as common table salt), but when dissolved in water, break down easily into their component elements, called ions, which carry either a positive or negative charge. Their names are familiar: The positive ions are calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium, and the negative ions are chloride, bicarbonate and phosphate.
The charges those minerals carry enable them to conduct electricity, and that in turn enables them to play a role in most of the electrochemical processes that sustain life: Their electrical charges carry signals across cell membranes and along nerve and muscle cells, powering functions from muscle contractions to digestion. Electrolytes also play a key role in moving fluids in and out of cells, nutrient absorption and regulation of the body’s total fluid balance. In other words, electrolytes make sure the water a horse drinks is delivered to the cells that need it.
If you have a horse that is actively sweating for long periods of time – usually 3-hours or more, without grazing abilities or a salt block; introducing an electrolyte supplement can do them a world of good, and we can help provide that!
