Science Supplements® Complete Horse Electrolytes contain the key electrolytes lost in sweat: sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Designed to support sustained performance, it uses Micro Encapsulation Technology™ to be gentle on your horse’s stomach.

Complete Electrolytes is a palatable, fully balanced electrolyte that helps replace the five key electrolytes—sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium and magnesium—in proportion to the amounts lost in horse sweat during exercise.

Micro Encapsulation Technology means the electrolytes are coated in a thin layer of oil, so they don’t have a salty/off-putting flavor. Micro encapsulation further helps prevents irritation of the stomach and intestine, as salt intake has also been shown to irritate or cause gastric ulceration in horses. Using Micro Encapsulation Technology means the electrolytes are protected in the stomach and only dissolve in the small intestine, where electrolyte uptake is optimal.

Sub-optimal electrolyte intake is a frequent cause of poor performance in competition horses. The five major electrolytes are nutrients required for nerve and muscle function, maintenance of normal hydration, and normal function of the kidneys, lungs, heart, and digestive system. Sub-optimal electrolyte intake can lead to muscle problems and poor performance, therefore horses in work sometimes require extra electrolytes to replace those lost in sweat, feces and urine. The harder the horse works, the hotter the horse gets. The longer a horse works and the warmer the weather, the more sweat, and therefore the more electrolytes, a horse will lose.

One liter of horse sweat contains around 3.5g of sodium, 6g of chloride, 1.2g of potassium and 0.1g of calcium. A horse can easily lose 5 liters of sweat each hour on a normal day at a moderate pace, which equates to the loss of around 50g of electrolytes. This amount would not be replaced by the horse’s normal daily hay and hard feed alone.

When your horse has been in months of training and/or high temperatures, it can take weeks or months, not just days, to fully restore the body’s normal electrolyte levels. The simple solution is to feed electrolytes every day to prevent problems instead of trying to treat them after the fact. Given regularly and not just during competition helps maintain electrolyte levels, stimulates appetite, encourages drinking, and leads to more consistent performance.
