Purina – Hydration Supplements

 

April 2013 issue  

 

 

With more than 100 years of trusted science and dedication to animal nutrition, Purina Animal Nutrition is expanding its line of equine products to include three electrolyte supplements, a joint supplement and a hydration hay block product.

      The supplements have been developed through a partnership with U.K.-based Science Supplements to improve performance and health for a variety of horses. These products include:  

ElectroEase™ Electrolyte Supplement – Geared for performance horses with technology that helps maintain hydration without irritating the stomach, a common issue with other typically harsh electrolyte products on the market.  

ElectroEase™ Electrolyte Paste Supplement – Developed for use right after strenuous exercise, competition or traveling, or during prolonged exercise. Contains twice the electrolytes of most paste electrolytes.  

HydraSalt™ Salt Supplement — Provides horses of all classes with the sodium needed in proportion to what is typically lost in sweat to help maintain proper hydration. Convenient powder form with minty flavor to ensure strong and consistent intake.  

FreedomFlex™ Joint Health Product — Provides performance, hardworking and senior horses with premium grade types and levels of ingredients to support joints and mobility. A double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover research study shows the fast-acting ingredients can help produce results in as little as 14 days.  

      ElectroEase™ Electrolyte Supplement and HydraSalt™ Salt Supplement contain smooth MicroBead™ Technology, which encapsulates each electrolyte granule and salt particle with oil, so they do not mix with gastric liquids. The coating forms a barrier, making the electrolytes gentle on the stomach. Once the particles pass through the stomach, the oil coating is broken down in the small intestine, where electrolyte uptake is optimal.

      In addition, while most electrolyte and salt supplements rely on heavy doses of sugar to promote intake, these supplements feature a palatable non-sugar-based formula that horses will readily consume.

            To learn more about these supplements, visit www.purinahorsesupplements.com or visit your Purina feed retailer.
