ELECTROLYTE GOLD is a scientifically formulated product containing essential electrolytes and vitamins in an amino acid and glucose base. Horses cool their bodies by sweating in large amounts and this results in a loss of electrolytes. Packed in convenient single feeding sachets, ELECTROLYTE GOLD will "refresh" horses in training. The addition of high levels of the antioxidant Vitamins E (1000iu) and C (750mg) will also protect muscle tissue by eliminating 'free radicals', noxious by products of exercise. Glycine and Glucose improve the rate of absorption of electrolytes in the gastrointestinal tract.
