Acculytes 5 LB Pail for Horses.
From Vita Flex.
Accurate and balanced electrolytes, in a formula based on actual electrolyte loss in performance horses.
Electrolytes - Maintaining the Body Electric Horses depend on certain electrically charged minerals to maintain the balance and flow of vital body fluids, the transmission of nerve impulses, and the healthy function of the muscles and the circulatory system. These minerals are called electrolytes. Their positive and negative charges help to control the body’s pH (acid/base) balance and the transport of nutrients and waste products in and out of the cells. Because some electrolytes, such as sodium and chloride, are in short supply in basic feedstuffs like hay and grain, it is important to provide a salt block for horses to use on a free choice basis. However, during periods of training, performance, and high ambient temperatures and humidity, horses lose large quantities of electrolytes through sweat. In these conditions, horses, like human athletes, need additional electrolytes added to their daily diet. AccuLytes™ provides a balanced, readily absorbable supply of the six major electrolytes in a concentrated and highly palatable supplement.
