Your horse loses more than water when he sweats
When your horse sweats, he loses water, salt, and other key minerals that are essential to normal nerve and muscle function, including potassium, calcium, and magnesium. If these key macro-minerals aren’t replenished, your horse could be left with a nutritional imbalance and won’t look, feel, or perform his best.
The smart way to replace the minerals lost
Electrolyte supplements are designed to mimic the mineral losses in equine sweat, helping bring your horse back into balance. Along with replacing the salt, potassium, calcium, and magnesium your horse loses in sweat, the salt in these supplements may help encourage your horse to drink, which is critical to healthy digestion and a normal fluid balance throughout his body.
