Description

Energy supplement for horses that are competing or in hard training.

There are a large number of products available for event horses, which are marketed as energy boosters.
The carbohydrates in these often consist of maltodextrin, glucose, dextrose (sometimes declared as a carbohydrate complex) and glucose polymers, frequently combined with normal sugar (sucrose).
The molecules in Hitargo are on average more than 100 times heavier than the molecules in other energy boosters.
Large starch molecules (high molecule weight) promote low osmolality, which in practice improves absorption from the small intestine into the blood. Solutions with lower osmolality than blood are called hypotonic solutions.
Hitargo provides an ultrahypotonic solution, which is absorbed very quickly and essentially improves stamina in the muscles.
Clinical trials on humans, as well as field trials on horses have shown the positive effect of the carbohydrates in Hitargo, compared to other carbohydrates.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Carbohydrate in powder form for event horses.

AREA OF APPLICATION
For the effective storage of muscle energy (glycogen) in the horse’s muscles in training and competition.

DOSE
When boosting carbohydrates before competition:
Prepare 200 g of Hitargo as per the instructions below and mix in concentrated feed 4-7 hours before competition.

For recharging after hard training and competition:
Prepare 100 g of Hitargo as per the instructions below and mix in the first feed after training/competition. If glycogen is not boosted before competition or training, 100 g of Hitargo should be given in the first two feeds after competition or training.

PREPARATION
Option 1: Mix 100 – 200 g of Hitargo in the feed Add 0.5 – 1 litres of water and stir.

Option 2: (when feeding with pellets): Mix 100 – 200 g of Hitargo with 0.5 – 1 litres of water.

Whisk or shake in a shaker into a smooth consistency before mixing in the feed, a prepared mix should be consumed within 4 hours.

NB: For best results: do not feed Hitargo with sugar-rich feedstuffs such as beet feed, molasses etc.
