A paste containing electrolytes and chelated minerals for fast replacement of loss from sweat. Ideal for pre and post competition or race.
Equine Athlete Quicklyte
The intense muscular activity associated with training and competition, whether it is racing, eventing, show jumping, endurance or dressage, results in an increase in body heat. The only way a horse can get rid of this heat is through sweat loss.
Sweat also represents the main route of fluid and electrolyte loss, between 5 and 10 litres per hour can be lost during an event or a race.
Rapid replacement of the fluid and electrolytes is important for a quick recovery. Failure to adequately replace lost electrolytes will lead to dehydration.
Saline drenching has always been the traditionalmethod of ensuring rapid electrolyte replacement. Although effective, this method is often inconvenient and expensive as it usually requires the services of a veterinarian.
Now there is an alternative to saline drenching.
Quicklyte paste is a combination of electrolytes and chelated minerals formulated in a single dose syringe for easy administration. One 30ml dose syringe replaces the electrolytes lost in 2 litres of sweat. Because the electrolytes in Quicklyte are present in a highly absorbable form, they are rapidly absorbed from the horse’s stomach.
Quicklyte uses a patented soya-cannola oil carrier that ensures the stability of the electrolytes and minerals during storage and at the same time gives the product its free-flow properties that make it easy to use.
After taking Quicklyte, horses have a strong desire to drink so it is important that fresh drinking water is made available. This makes Quicklyte ideal to use before and after long float trips. How often do you hear of horses who won’t drink when they travel away from home, Quicklyte will trigger a response to drink and often then to eat.
Some indications for using Quicklyte include;
8 to12 hours before intense exercise.
1-2 hours after intense exercise.
Regularly during hot summer months.
when horses won't take electrolytes in their feed.
Endurance Recovery Stops.
Quicklyte also contains Iron Gluconate as well as zinc, copper and cobalt chelates, all essential minerals for red blood cell production. Chelated minerals are more easily absorbed than ordinary minerals as they do not compete with each other for absorption sites across the gut wall. In addition, chelated means the presence of the iron in Quicklyte has no effect on the adsorption of the minerals.
