More Than Just an Electrolyte: Why Your Program Needs Vitalize ® Blazin’ This Summer

It’s no secret that performance horses and those used for daily work sweat. Important minerals are lost in that sweat, which is why horse owners and trainers rely on electrolytes to replenish the minerals, especially in the heat of the summer months. However, that isn’t always getting to the root of the problem–heat. Electrolytes might help with mineral replenishment, but your horses still feel effects of the heat. Innovative technology available in Vitalize® Blazin’ helps support normal recovery from heat stress.

“Vitalize Blazin’ works different than other products on the market. While it does help replenish some of what is lost and maintain cellular hydration, it also supports blood flow to the skin, which helps to dissipate body heat. Additionally, we know that elevated temperatures and exertion often result in damaging free radicals and fatigue, so the formula contains antioxidants to help combat those effects,” said Lynsey Whitacre, Ph.D., BioZyme Inc.

Vitalize Blazin’ is a palatable, easy to use liquid product that supports normal recovery from heat stress and exertion in horses. It contains a proprietary blend of ingredients to support blood flow and dissipation of body heat. The benefits of its use are cumulative, so for the best results, use it for at least three consecutive days and as long as is required based on the temperature, Dr.Whitacre explains.

“A horse is in what is called its thermoneutral zone, not requiring any additional efforts to warm or cool itself, from about 40 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, this can vary with exercise, which of course generates a lot of additional body heat. Because of this, Blazin’ works best when temperatures are above about 75 degrees for horses in moderate to heavy work. For horses in light or very light work, Blazin’ works best when temperatures are above 80 degrees,” she said.

Beat the heat this summer with Vitalize Blazin’!Blazin’ helps achieve the following:

  • Supports blood flow to help dissipate body heat caused by environment or exercise.
  • Promotes cellular hydration and water retention.
  • Enhances exercise tolerance and helps support stamina, especially during hotter temps.
  • Contains antioxidants to reduce damaging free radicals caused by exertion and heat.

“Unfortunately, a lot of our show seasons come with heat and humidity that can be really draining on the horses. Blazin’ is a great way to support horses that are in these hot environments still perform at their best and be as comfortable as possible,” Dr. Whitacre said.
