Proper hydration is essential for a horse to maintain normal fluid-electrolyte balance essential for health and performance.  Unlike traditional, salt-based hydration products, Equine BlueLite contains a combination of electrolytes with sodium chloride needed for electrolyte balance, but also adds energy and nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium.  Use Equine BlueLite to ensure that the horse maintains electrolyte balance, encourages water intake, and receives the hydration needed to stay healthy during times of extreme exercise, stress or heat.

Equine BlueLite is available in three forms: powder, pellet, and jel.  Each form contains high impact ingredients: probiotics for beneficial gut health, vitamins and minerals to help achieve balanced health, and energy metabolites for efficient energy uptake.  Choosing between the products is as easy as determining which one would be easiest to administer in any given situation.  For example, in cases where water is readily available, Equine BlueLite powder can easily be mixed with water and administered before periods of activity or travel. Equine BlueLite Jel can be administered in any location and delivery is instantly available, such as at veterinary check points at an event. Equine BlueLite Pellets are ideal to top dress on daily feed to ensure that horses regularly receive added nutrients and electrolytes.  With three forms from which to choose, horse enthusiasts can easily ensure proper hydration and equine wellness in any situation.

Equine BlueLite is a specially formulated oral rehydration electrolyte-vitamin-energy supplement specifically designed to rehydrate horses that have lost substantial amounts of body fluid and electrolytes as a result of profuse sweating frequently seen after exercise and during warm weather.

Equine BlueLite provides a tasty pH regulating action that helps establish and maintain the proper digestive pH, thereby facilitating the absorption of electrolytes and the utilization of nutrients during the digestion of feedstuffs. This tasty pH regulating action makes Equine BlueLite the ideal rehydration product for high performance horses, as well as for colts, fillies and horses that are stressed from dehydration resulting from digestive upsets such as diarrhea.

Equine BlueLite contains a broad spectrum of buffered electrolytes and trace mineral proteinates thereby reducing the potential of irritating the mucosa of the inflamed intestinal tract as compared to many harsh inorganic chemicals.

Equine BlueLite provides multiple sources of energy in the form of dextrose, sucrose, lactose and fructose in combination with high levels of vitamins. This combination of electrolytes, energy and vitamins makes Equine BlueLite a convenient and quick nutrient supplement for the horse during competition, training and trail rides, as well as for continued 10-14 day usage for horses stressed from parasites or marginal nutrition.

FIELD TRIALS
Equine BlueLite has been field tested on race tracks, in stables and on long distance endurance rides by veterinarians, trainers and horse owners. The pleasant, sweet taste in combination with strawberry and apple flavoring, makes Equine BlueLite convenient for use both as a top dress on the feed or in the drinking water.

Some horses will occasionally refrain from drinking water with sudden changes in taste – even when it contains the sweet, pleasant taste of Equine BlueLite. In these situations, Equine BlueLite should be top dressed or mixed in the feed. Its pleasant taste and convenience for both feed and water applications make Equine BlueLite ideal for use by horse owners, trainers and veterinarians when working with horses of any age under a wide variety of field and performance conditions.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Top dress Equine BlueLite on the feed or add Equine BlueLite to the drinking water continuously for 10-15 days for horses enduring severe, extensive physical activity, or when horses sweat profusely as a result of hot weather or training, racing, showing. Also use in horses that may be debilitated as a result of poor nutrition, internal parasites and for other stresses that may result in the sudden loss of body weight.

FEED ADMINISTRATION
Foals and yearlings –
daily top dress 1-2 ounces of Equine BlueLite on the grain ration.
Working/pleasure horses – top dress Equine BlueLite on the grain ration according to the degree of dehydration or shrink that occurs as a result of energy expended and the amount of fluid lost as sweat during exercise or work based on the following:

Amount of Equine BlueLite
Ponies and horses 300-600 pounds:
1-2 ounces daily for routine or mild physical activity, 2-3 ounces daily for extensive-endurance physical activity.

600-900 pounds: 3-4 ounces daily for routine or mild physical activity, 4-6 ounces daily for extensive-endurance physical activity.

900-1,200 pounds: 5-6 ounces daily for routine or mild physical activity, 6-10 ounces daily for extensive-endurance physical activity.

1,200 pounds and over: 7-8 ounces daily for routine or mild physical activity, 8-10 ounces daily for extensive-endurance physical activity.

WATER ADMINISTRATION
1. Add 1 to 2 ounces of Equine BlueLite to each 2 gallons drinking water consumed by the horse on a daily basis.
2. Horses will usually consume drinking water equivalent to 7-9 percent of their body weight.  The demands of profuse sweating, hot weather, lactation and extensive exercise may increase water needs by 20-50 percent.

NOTE: Two (2) heaping tablespoons equal approximately one (1) ounce of Equine BlueLite

ELECTROLYTES FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE HORSES

"Dehydration is a problem in Arizona year-round, especialy in the hot summer months when temperatures are 115 degrees during the day," says Al Kuenzli, owner and Trainer at Kuenzli Reining Horses in Scottsdale, AZ.  Together with his wife, NRHA and AQHA Judge, Tina, Kuenzli is an avid user of many TechMix hydration products including BlueLite Powder, BlueLite Pellets, and BlueLite Jel.

"I decided to use BlueLite Pellets for daily hydration maintenance," says Kuenzli.  "I feed all the horses the BlueLite pellets, even the yearlings that are not being ridden."  With a proprietary blend of energy metabolites and electrolytes, BlueLite Pellets open cells, allowing horses to absorb and utilize more water.  "Since feeding the BlueLite pellets everyday, I haven't experienced dehydration problems with any of my horses," says Kuenzli.  "Muscle function improved and endurance was improved beyond my expectations for all the horses in training."

"Even though I have been using BlueLite Pellets as a daily maintenance program, I was still concerned that some horses in heavy training may need additional hydration.  To help boost hydration in these horses, I also top dress BlueLite Powder on their feed in the evening," says Kuenzli.  "There is great improvement in trainability, muscle tone, soreness and appearance after feeding BlueLite.  Now that we have been using BlueLite and have seen the difference when hydrating my horses properly - I will always use the BlueLite products on a daily basis with my horses."

"Being a professional horse trainer, show schedules are very demanding and trailer hauls are very long for the horses," says Kuenzli.  "It is extremely important that the horses arrive to the event in top condition and ready to compete."  BlueLite Jel helps establish and maintain optimum digestive pH for quick energy, electrolyte and vitamin utilization.  "BlueLite Jel is given to every horse prior to the long haul as an insurance policy," says Kuenzli.  It is the best insurance policy I have ever purchased!"

"The TechMix Equine BlueLite line has helped my horses tremendously," says Kuenzli.  "My horses attitudes have improved and they are more lively and energetic."

 

HYDRATION FOR EQUINE ATHLETES

As a competitive barrel racer, Cheryl Murray travels frequently with her horses and knows the importance of keeping her horses well hydrated when on the road. “My horses become easily dehydrated due to long hauls to competitions for barrel racing.  Equine BlueLite Pellets and BlueLite Powder have improved hydration dramatically since I started feeding them to my horses.”

Murray developed a plan that includes using TechMix Equine products at home and when on the road. “I feed the pellets as daily maintenance. I add BlueLite Powder to the water at home and at the barrel competitions. Because they get used to the blue color and the palatable taste of the water with BlueLite added at home, they don't hesitate to drink the BlueLite water at shows.  That is a huge advantage as horses usually won’t drink unfamiliar water at shows.”

Using TechMix Equine hydration products, Murray has found the perfect combination to help her horses to stay hydrated and healthy. “I feel that my horses perform at a top level and have less body soreness because their hydration levels are optimal. Since switching to BlueLite Pellets and BlueLite Powder, my horses are able to maintain hydration. This is because TechMix products do not use high amounts of salt derivatives in the electrolyte.”

“I am very happy with TechMix BlueLite Pellets and BlueLite Powder,” Murray says. “My horses stay hydrated and are overall healthier.”

When does your horse need electrolytes?
Two-thirds of a horse’s body weight is water, making electrolyte balance an important every day event for your horse. A horse can lose fluid through sweating, defecation, urination, and respiration. Dehydration increases during stress, hot weather, heavy workout, sweating, diet changes and disease. If electrolyte balance is not replenished, blood volume decreases and potential negative health effects such as sluggish behavior, colic, failure to perform, and shock.

Are all electrolytes the same?
Simply stated, ‘no’. Certain electrolytes utilize a high level of salt which can do more harm than good. The five major electrolytes which must be replenished include: Potassium, Chloride, Magnesium, Sodium, and Calcium. To ensure that the supplemented electrolytes and nutrients are absorbed, Equine BlueLite uses Betaine, an osmolyte to help with water and electrolyte uptake by the cells. To help effectively use and restore lost electrolytes Equine BlueLite includes a proprietary formula of energy metabolites and electrolytes.
