Maintaining blood glucose concentration during exercise is vital as an energy source for the working muscles and brain. During prolonged exercise blood glucose levels begin to deplete seriously affect performance. Energex helps to maintain the glucose levels by providing a readily available source of carbohydrate. Used as a recovery aid following hard work Energex is made from disaccharide a slow release type of sugar not normally found in the diet of a horse. Once digested this sugar is released and converted to gluocose to top up the levels in the bloodstream. Suitable for any horse or pony undertaking prolonged exercise such as Endurance, Racing or Eventing, Energex can also be used prior to short bouts of exercise such as Showing and Show Jumping where exercise is repeated over several days of competition. Energex can be given at any time during competition but for best results it should be administered 30 minutes prior to the start. For Endurance horses a minimum of half syringe should be orally injected at each early Vet Gate and a full syringe per Vet Gate later in the race Syringe size 60g Ingredients 6-0-a-D-glucopyranosyl-D-fructofuranose, monohydrate (disaccharide)

Horses lose a significant quantity of electrolytes (maily sodium, chloride and potassium) through sweating which is increased when exercising in the heat. To maintain a horse's peak health and performance these losses must be replaced by either daily diet or other means. To maintain the balance, electrolytes can be added to the feed, but horses often find these unpallatable and can boycott the feed if these are introduced. Using an electrolyte paste ensures that the horse recives the electrolytes needed as they are administered directly into the mouth. This method is particulatly useful immediately before or after competition or during prolonged events such as Endurance or Eventing. Supplied in 1 60g syringe, the Science Supplement Electrolyte has been formulated into a pallatable paste with added glucose syrup and peppermint to ensure that all the required electrolytes are administered easily and cleanly. The Electrolyte can be use prior to, during and following competition and can help reduce electrolyte sweat loss during prolonged travel. It is importatant when using electrolytes to take into consideration the horses' relative rate of sweating, the prevailing weather conditions and the amount of water that has been drunk.
