Horse electrolyte supplement

Horses sweat to maintain their body temperature. A horse’s body thermoregulates and in this way gives off heat. Because a horse sweats, a lot of fluid gets lost, but also a large part of electrolytes. This fluid and electrolytes are of great importance to prevent dehydration and ensure that all biochemical processes in the body continue to run smoothly. This makes it important that electrolytes are replenished after sweating. Electrolytes are minerals that transmit electrical impulses in the body. They bond with other ions to form salts. Electrolytes are especially important for fluid balance and the maintenance of acidity. Furthermore, they are the driving force for water transport throughout the body. In addition, electrolytes have a major influence on muscle and nerve functions. The main electrolytes are sodium, potassium and chlorine.
