ENERGETIC provides electrolytes to help maintain optimum body fluid composition and prevent dehydration. It also provides the readily available energy sources glucose & medium chain triglycerides; the biological antioxidants Vitamins C and beta carotene; and branched- chain amino acids.
Medium Chain Triglycerides supply highly bioavailable fatty acids which are rapidly absorbed and converted to energy in working muscles.
Glucose and Maltodextrin are highly bioavailable carbohydrates of value during the stages of racing requiring maximum exertion, where energy availability is critical.
The balanced electrolytes help maintain normal body function within optimum range for maximum performance.
Antioxidants are essential to reduce cell damage, particularly to muscle and blood vessels, which occurs after any exercise. The more strenuous the exercise, the more the cell damage from free radicals. Adequate training reduces the likelihood of free radical damage, but antioxidants are always required by the body.
The maintenance of a proper balance of body fluids is critical to athletic performance. Dehydration (loss of body fluid balance) will rapidly reduce the capacity of training to peak fitness, and can in extreme cases, result in muscle damage.
Athletic horses are subjected to significantly greater stresses than resting horses. Such stresses can disrupt the physiological balance required for optimum performance. Horses under heavy exercise loads, or under physical stress such as long truck or float trips, have higher requirements for vitamins (particularly B group) and minerals such as magnesium which is used in cell metabolism.
Horses quickly learn to drink this product in water, or to eat it in their feed, which makes it very useful when travelling and campaigning horses in strange venues where they may be reluctant to drink.
When using ENERGETIC in the feed, always ensure free access to clean, palatable drinking water.
One 250g sachet of ENERGETIC can ideally be mixed in 2.5 litres water, and the horse is able to drink this whenever required. In this manner, ENERGETIC can be provided wherever the horse is travelling to, or easily
at home. ENERGETIC is safely mixed as a powder in food, as long as horses drink shortly after eating. Mix one sachet in food 24 hours before travel or hard work. Endurance and other hard working horses may be supplemented with ENERGETIC in drinking water at rest stops whenever required.
