Details

What? 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. This leads to a more balanced and prolonged energy supply. EnerGex also supports improved fat oxidation during physical activity as high 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? 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.

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)

Does what it says on the "tin" (Review by Willow)
Rating
Have used this twice. Once after a gruelling Man v Horse. My pony was the only head over the stable door in the morning looking bright and alert. She'd eaten a full bucket of feed and drunk really well overnight away from home. Second time was during my arabs first 65km endurance ride, she goes off all food at rides, which is really concerning, she was given the syringe at half way, and when she arrived back to the venue, she drunk a full bucket of liquid, and ate a feed. She ate her supper and breakfast at home, which she hadn't been doing for a couple of days after rides. As a result, she has lost less condition than she had done when doing half the distance!
