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.

EnerGex can be given before, during or after competition or training. If given before the start of exercise EnerGex should not be given more than 15 minutes prior to the start. Given immediately after exercise, EnerGex promotes recovery.

There’s plenty of marketing and claims surrounding feed & supplements but how do you know that what you are feeding is safe and more importantly legal?
When we talk about positive tests in horses people generally associate this just with deliberate doping but this is not the case and many high profile cases have involved feed or supplement contamination.
