The five major electrolytes: sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium and magnesium; are key nutrients required for nerve and muscle function, maintenance of normal hydration and normal function of the digestive system, kidneys, lungs and heart. Sub-optimal electrolyte intake can lead to muscle problems and poor performance, therefore horses in work require extra electrolytes to replace those lost in sweat, faeces 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 litre 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 litres 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 horses' normal daily hay and hard feed alone.

Vitamin E is central to muscle and nerve function, heart health, immune function, lung health and skin health.
Horses cannot make Vitamin E and must get it from their diet. It is therefore essential that sufficient Vitamin E is fed or supplemented.
Many Vitamin E supplements use the much cheaper synthetic forms of Vitamin E. Natural E, as the name suggests provides a natural source of Vitamin E which has up to double the biological activity than synthetic forms of Vitamin E. Natural E also contains organic selenium which is essential for the optimal activity of Vitamin E.
Vitamin E is higher in fresh forage than in preserved forages. Vitamin E levels in commercial dry horse feeds are naturally very low due to processing and so Vitamin E must be supplemented. As Vitamin E is a relatively expensive feed ingredient the levels added may be on the low side.
Metabolic Tonic helps your horse maintain a normal metabolism. The word 'Metabolism' describes how all the chemical reactions in the body work together. The body's metabolism naturally changes with the time of year and the amount of fat deposits present. Metabolism may also be affected by unusual environmental conditions and pollution. The state of the body's metabolism in such conditions affects energy levels, insulin resistance levels, blood glucose stability, fat levels in crest and belly, sensitive laminae, and normal drinking and urination.
Metabolic Tonic is designed to help all the above remain in normal harmony so that your horses can live productive, energetic, fit, and happy lives.
