Science Supplements Energex for horses.

EnerGex is ideal for use before, during and following exercise to support energy delivery. It can also be used as an energy booster in lethargic horses and to maintain blood glucose levels in situations where food intake is decreased, such as during travelling or when appetite is reduced. EnerGex is a safer source of carbohydrate (energy) compared with simple sugars which can lead to adverse effects on behaviour and performance. It is low-glycaemic meaning it leads to a slower rate of glucose entry into the blood, avoiding high peaks and sudden drops in blood glucose levels, and therefore insulin levels as well. This leads to a more balanced and prolonged energy supply. The low insulinemic level of EnerGex also supports improved fat oxidation during physical activity as high insulin levels hinder the use of lipids (fat) as an energy source. Energex can increase the utilisation of fat during exercise, thus enhancing endurance performance. EnerGex provides 1674kJ per 100g.

Why use EnerGex?
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 horses with reduced appetite or hindgut function. 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 and prolonged results.

When?
EnerGex can be used before exercise in horses lacking in energy and can also be given to those with reduced appetite, for example during travelling, or when hindgut function is compromised (e.g. during or after colic) or to old horses or poor doers. It can be given daily in feed for a more consistent supply of energy or by syringe between rounds, at events or at the onset of fatigue.

How?
Level 25ml (20g) scoops per day.
To boost energy: add the required amount in feed approximately 2-4 hours before exercise:
Pony (approximately 250kg) 2
Horse (approximately 500kg) 3-4
Large Horse (approximately 750kg) 3-4

For stamina or to aid recovery: use daily in feed up to the maximum daily dose:
Pony (approximately 250kg) 2-3
Horse (approximately 500kg) 2-4
Large Horse (approximately 750kg) 2-4

Immediately before exercise or during competition: We recommend using the EnerGex paste (syringe)
