What is differenct about Safe Salt?
Whilst salt and electrolytes can be added to thefeed, horses often find these unpalatable and their granular naturemeans that it is easy for fussy horses to leave them at the bottom ofthe feed manger. There is also evidence that ordinary salt can cause orworsen gastric ulcers in horses. SafeSalt is a unique formulation thatprovides a palatable source of sodium and chloride and helps overcomethese potential palatability problems.
Exactly as the name suggests: Salt that is safe for your horse andtheir stomach. A unique electrolyte (NaCl; sodium and chloride) toovercome problems with palatability, gastric upset and gastriculceration. Individual grains of salt coated in special oil which willnot dissolve in the mouth or stomach. The oil coating dissolves in thesmall intestine where electrolyte uptake is optimal and gentle on thestomach unlike ordinary electrolytes
Salt (sodium chloride, chemical formula NaCl) is akey nutrient required for nerve and muscle function, maintenance ofnormal hydration and digestive, kidney, lung and heart function. Forageis rich in potassium and chloride and in some cases calcium (e.g.alfalfa) The most common electrolyte deficient is sodium (Na) and mosthorses need supplemental salt. Horses in work, competing and racingrequire extra electrolytes to replace those lost in sweat, faeces andurine and sub-optimal electrolyte intake can lead to muscle problems andpoor performance
SafeSalt should be given daily in feed during training. SafeSalt isan ideal alternative to ordinary salt or electrolytes for horses that gooff their feed during hard work.
