Science Supplements Energex
Why? Exercise performance in horses is almost always limited by muscle glycogen concentration. Glycogen is formed from simple sugars linked together and is the animal equivalent of starch in plants. Recovery in muscle glycogen after exercise is reduced if there is insufficient dietary intake of carbohydrate (sugars) or in circumstances where horses have reduced hindgut function or a reduced appetite. By increasing the energy supply it increases performance and aids the utilisation of fat as an energy source which leads to more prolonged and balanced results.
When? EnerGex can be used before exercise in horses lacking in energy and can also be given to horses with reduced appetite, for example during travelling or to old horses or poor doers. It can be given daily in feed for a more consistent supply of energy or as a syringe for use between rounds, events or at the onset of fatigue.
