Searching for the Best Horse Electrolytes?
The importance of horse electrolyte supplements and powders cannot be underestimated. If your horse is sweating excessively after a hard workout, he’s losing essential “salts” such as sodium, potassium and chloride. This condition affects the performance and overall health of the horse.
In fact, electrolyte deficiency is characterized by poor performance, dark urine, listlessness, sunken eyes and a dull coat. This is where the best horse electrolyte supplements or powders come in handy. They not only ensure your horse’s cells are adequately hydrated, but they also facilitate optimal delivery of nutrition when it matters most.
The Importance of Providing a High-Quality Horse Electrolyte Supplement
Providing a quality electrolyte supplement before and after a heavy workout session could help your horse recover quickly and more efficiently. The time before the horse gets fatigued is increased by at least 23% when an electrolyte supplement is administered within an hour of finishing a strenuous workout session. This enables the horse to perform well over the next few days.
On the other hand, without essential electrolytes, the horse’s body can’t retain water. So, giving a horse water after a strenuous workout session isn’t the best way to keep him hydrated over time.
How to Choose an Equine Electrolyte Supplement
There are several important things to consider when looking for the best equine electrolytes. Here are some of the factors to consider:
- Read the label carefully before you buy any nutritional supplement for your horse.
- The amounts of sodium, chloride and potassium should be almost the same in the supplement you choose.
- Look for electrolyte supplements that contain chloride or acetate combinations such as potassium chloride, sodium chloride, calcium acetate or calcium chloride, which are easily absorbed.
- The supplement shouldn’t contain corn syrup, sugar or dextrose as its first ingredients. Salt should be the first element on the list. However, the other ingredients should be included at lower levels to increase the palatability of the supplement.
- Never purchase an electrolyte supplement made for cattle, other animals or even humans. Only choose supplements that are specially manufactured for horses.
