Electrolyte Supplements

In mammalian physiology, the primary ions of electrolytes are sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+),magnesium (Mg2+) and chloride (Cl-).

Dextrose (sugar) is not an electrolyte! Sometimes dextrose is added to electrolyte supplements in order to improve palatability, but should not be the major ingredient!

All higher life forms require a complex electrolyte balance between the intracellular and extracellular gradients among cells. These gradients affect and regulate the hydration of the body, blood pH, and are critical for nerve andmuscle function.

Kauffman's Electrolyte Supplements have been formulated to meet the challenging demands of a variety of equine athletes across a broad range of disciplines.

Kauffman's Hydromax

(Electrolyte)

Kauffman's Hydromax contains proven rehydration ingredients (salt and potassium chloride) formulated to provide the proper amounts and ratios of sodium (Na), potassium (K) and chloride (Cl).  This basis for traditional electrolyte formulations has been uniquely combined with calcium acetate, lactose, fenugreek, magnesium oxide, and glycine to provide calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), amino acids from whey protein concentrate and energy to significantly enhance pre- and post-exertion recovery and rehydration.
