KAUFFMAN’S® Electrolyte Paste will provide supplemental Calcium (Ca), Sodium (Na), Chloride (Cl), Magnesium (Mg), and Potassium (K), as well as the trace minerals Iron, Zinc, Magnesium, Copper, and Cobalt in a formula balanced for equine use. It replaces lost electrolytes and supports electrolyte balance in equine athletes.
Electrolyte Paste comes in a single, 35 gram tube that is easy to administer whether you’re in the barn or on the go! Recommended for horses under stress, environmental changes, and horses in training or equine athletes.
What are Electrolytes and How Do They Work?
Electrolytes are minerals that bond readily with salts such as sodium chloride. When they are dissolved in water, these elements break down into ions that carry positive or negative charges throughout a horse’s body.
The positive ions are sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium. The negative ions are bicarbonate, chloride and phosphate. These charges are important for conducting electricity and maintaining most of the electrochemical processes that sustain the horse’s life.
Electrolytes also play an important role in moving fluids in and out of the body’s cells. These elements also help support the body’s fluid balance and nutrient absorption.
Why Electrolytes Are Important for Horses
A horse sweats excessively after a strenuous workout or competition. With this sweat, lots of essential salts and minerals are lost. This can result in diminished performance, low energy and hydration levels.
This is where a high-quality electrolyte paste works to support the horse’s recovery and maintain energy levels. Gels and paste are the most convenient to use during periods of excessive sweating.
In fact, electrolytes delivered in these forms are more easily delivered to the horse’s cells. The paste is delivered directly into the mouth of the horse through a syringe. You won’t need water or food to administer electrolyte paste for horses, and the paste yields results more quickly than powdered supplements.
