Full Item Details
Prolonged exercise, such as endurance, can result in depletion of muscle and liver glycogen. When muscle glycogen is depleted the horse can continue to exercise on fat, but at a slower speed. When liver glycogen is depleted blood glucose cannot be maintained. Energex increases plasma glucose with only a small increase in insulin making the increased glucose available to the muscles and brain both during exercise to aid glycogen sparing, and after exercise for optimal glycogen replenishment and recovery.
