- 2kg tubs gives approximately 1 month supply
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.

|Instructions for use||To boost energy: add the required amount in feed approximately 2-4 hours before exercise:
Pony (approximately 250kg) 2 scoops
Horse (approximately 500kg) 3-4 scoops
Large Horse (approximately 750kg) 3-4 scoops
For stamina or to aid recovery: use daily in feed up to the maximum daily dose:
Pony (approximately 250kg) 2-3 scoops
Horse (approximately 500kg) 2-4 scoops
Large Horse (approximately 750kg) 2-4 scoops
Immediately before or during competition: We recommend using the EnerGex syringe.
EnerGex is fully digested and absorbed in the small intestine providing 1674kJ per 100g.
Mix thoroughly with feed.
Syringe feeding rate:
Pony - approximately 250kg½ syringe
Horse - approximately 500kg1 syringe
Large Horse - over 750kg1 syringe
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 tothe start. For intense exercise, 2 syringes may be given. Additional syringes may be given every 1-2 hours. Given immediately after exercise, EnerGex promotes recovery.
Per 60g syringe EnerGex delivers 40g of slow release, complex carbohydrate.
|Maintenance Feeding Rate (average size animal)||2-4 scoops per day|
