  • Boost energy and assist in electrolyte absorption


  • Horses prior to, during and after travel
  • Performance horses following sweat loss
  • Rehydration after illness or diarrhoea
  • “Tucked up” horses – showing signs of dehydration


  • Rapidly restores electrolyte levels - RECHARGE is formulated to provide rapid correction of fluid and electrolyte levels in the performance horse to maintain hydration, promote normal body function, provide efficient temperature regulation and heart and blood vessel stability and function.
