PFL Jug is an electrolyte paste for horses with heavy sweat losses providing benefits within minutes. Generous levels of key electrolyte minerals for horses known to have low blood Potassium due to prolonged loss of electrolytes in heavy sweat or muscle breakdown. Also contains full spectrum B vitamins important for metabolism and nervous system support, and key amino acids involved in muscular metabolism and exercise.
Available Size: 60 cc / 1 dose
Jug is an electrolyte paste with generous levels of the key electrolyte minerals. Most appropriate for horses known to have low blood Potassium from prolonged loss of electrolytes in sweat or muscle breakdown. It also contains a full spectrum of the B vitamins, important for metabolism and nervous system support. Also provides key amino acids involved in muscular metabolism and exercise.
Electrolytes are simply minerals that exist in the body in an electrically charged state. Sweating results in loss of electrolytes in the order Chloride > Sodium > Potassium in the sweat. Because the body very tightly regulates concentration of Sodium in the blood, the horse's kidneys will preferentially excrete Potassium when Sodium is low, leading to low blood levels of Potassium before Sodium drops significantly. Extremely low Potassium levels can result in muscle weakness, gut motility disruption and heart rhythm changes.
Calcium and Magnesium are also lost in sweat. When Chloride levels in the blood drop, it magnifies the problem of low Calcium and Magnesium because low Chloride causes Bicarbonate to rise, which ties up the metabolically active form of these minerals. Low Calcium levels can lead to altered nerve, muscle and cardiac function.
