Why choose Humidimix?
When to use Humidimix?
Electrolytes are salts that play an important role in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance, kidney function and normal nerve and muscle activity in the body. every day electrolytes are lost from the body in large amounts through sweat.
A horse cools their body primarily by sweating. In many situations, the amount of sweat lost may be apparent due to evaporation. Horses may lose up to 10-15L of sweat per hour during exercise and continue to sweat during the cool down period. Heat, humidity and intense or prolonged exercise will all increase sweating.
Horses in training are unlikely to be able to replace these body salts from their feed alone, and extra supplementation in most cases is required.
If the electrolytes and fluid lost are not replaced the results are fatigue, muscle weakness, a decrease in the desire to drink and ultimately delayed recovery after strenuous exercise and reduced performance.
