Equine BlueLite Pellets
FEATURES & BENEFITS
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Proper hydration is essential for a horse to maintain normal fluid-electrolyte balance essential for health and performance. Ensure that your horse gets the energy and nutrients needed during times of extreme exercise, stress or heat by giving your horse Equine BlueLite. Different than a traditional, salt-based hydration product, 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. For over twenty-five years, horse owners have used Equine BlueLite to ensure that the horse maintains electrolyte balance, encourages water intake, and receives the hydration needed to stay healthy.
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 the formula for success to help horses whenever they need additional performance or energy, when settling into a new farm or boarding facility, to counter the impact of chlorine in water when travelling, transitioning from pasture to dry forage, during weather changes, during shows and events, or extreme weather conditions.

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."
KEEP YOUR HORSE HEALTHY WITH TECHMIX
"TechMix products really do make the difference," says Carla Cline of Chino Valley, AZ. Cline is a trainer of forty horses and currently has twenty of her own. Cline's horses do anything from trail riding to halter, pleasure, and English. Cline is an avid user of many of the TechMix Equine products, including Equine Natu-Joint, Equine Natu-Lax, Equine Restart, Equine BlueLite Pellets, Equine BlueLite Jel, and Equine Hoof Protect. "Every horse that I train at my facility is fed TechMix products," says Cline. "And when horses leave my training facility, I send product with the owners and recommend the continued use daily."
Cline top dresses Equine Restart on the feed every day. With a blend of fatty acids, probiotics, electrolytes, and antioxidants, Equine Restart is the perfect everyday supplement. "Restart really makes a big difference," says Cline. "My horses coat conditions are phenomenal, overall health is improved along with their daily feed efficiency."
Cline travels between Arizona and Texas frequently for shows. "I use BlueLite Pellets before traveling to a show," says Cline. "I have never had a problem with getting horses to drink, they travel well, and will drink on the trailer with this product - it is the best electrolyte product that I've ever found!" Cline will also offer her horses Equine BlueLite Jel if they are not drinking normally. "If one of my horses isn't drinking, I give them a tube of Equine BlueLite Jel and that takes care of any problems," says Cline.
Another product that Cline offers her horses on a daily basis is Equine Natu-Joint. Equine Natu-Joint helps to decrease deterioration of cartilage tissue in joints by supplying the necessary building blocks to help the body manufacture its own natural cartilage. "All of the horses I train, whetheer they are two years old or aged horses, get Equine Natu-Joint," says Cline. "I don't see stiffness in my horses like I used to."
"Proper hoof care is essential to maintaining the well-being and performance of horses. Equine Hoof Protect provides ingredients essential to keeping horse hooves strong and healthy. A few years back, Cline had a horse that separated its hoof from the coronet bands. "That mare needed to grow an entire new hoof," says cline. "This can be a very expensive problem, but I put her on Equine Hoof Protect and exactly one year later, she was back to showing and in great health. I absolutely love this product!"
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.
