Foran Equine - Electrolytes
Electrolytes or “salts” are a mix of essential minerals present in the blood and tissues of horses. These electrolytes have many functions, primarily maintaining water balance and blood volume in the body. They also function in muscle contraction, nerve conduction as well as being integral to kidney and liver functions.
Horses lose electrolytes in their sweat. As strenuous exercise can produce significant levels of sweat, the electrolyte loss can be substantial.
In order to maintain the body’s water balance it is essential to replace these lost electrolytes along with water.
Adequate provision of electrolytes in a horse’s diet maintains hydration, appetite, improves exercise endurance and recovery after strenuous exercise.
