Hydrate Support is based on betaine, also known as trimethylglycine or TMG. Betaine is a modified amino acid that occurs naturally in plants such as linseeds, beets, cereals and in us. According to Dr Eleanor Kellon VMD, betaine can help horses that are difficult to hydrate and can support muscle bulk and function, as well as heat tolerance and endurance. It is one of the organic renal osmolytes, a nonmineral which helps maintain a water drawing effect in the kidney. When salt supplementation is not enough, Hydrate Support can help conserve water.

Feeding rate is 15 – 30 g/day for a 500 kg horse, mix with feed.
If feeding twice per day, split between both feeds.

Safe for laminitic prone or insulin resistant (IR)/elevated insulin horses.
Hydrate Support can be fed with any of the mineral mixes, Equine Amino, Mov-Ease, Mycosorb A+ and Diamond V XPC.

Hydrate Support is a nutritional supplement product for inclusion in horse’s feed. Product has no therapeutic effect and is designed to be administered in a feed for voluntary ingestion for horses.
Animal consumption only.

Research

In this study, enhanced lactate clearance after exercise, no biochemical effects during exercise, no testing of ergogenic potential (enhancement of physical performance) per se.

Warren et al discuss muscle fatigue and state that lactic acid accumulation is the cause, this specific cause has been disproved.

    If you are ordering from NZ, Balanced Equine can ONLY post Best Guess, Equi Horse, Equi Horse +Se, HoofXtra and Equine Amino as NZ Customs have provided ACVM clearance for these specific products. For example, Mov-Ease doesn’t have clearance for NZ. For all other countries, all the products can be posted though Balanced Equine cannot be held responsible if your country doesn’t allow entry.
