Electrolytes are essential to both horses and humans. At their most basic level electrolytes are a combination of salts and minerals that are used for chemical processes within the body’s cells. When a horse becomes dehydrated after strenuous exercise or exposure to heat, it has lost critical fluids and electrolytes. Simply providing water is inadequate as this alone will not replace electrolytes. It may actually dilute them, leading to overhydration.
NutriLyte Horse Electrolyte Replacement Supplement contains sodium chloride and potassium in the same ratio as is lost in sweat. Because NutriLyte contains easily absorbed carbohydrates it replaces energy much faster and can therefore be used during, and immediately after, exercise.
