Echarge BCAA is a powerful daily electrolyte supplement (powdered). It is a quick absorbing oral electrolyte, amino acid, and trace mineral supplement for horses under stress from summer heat, hard work, training, and physical activity. Ideal for horses who are under heavy work or intense training to maintain proper hydration. It is also beneficial to promote water consumption for finicky horses while hauling or away from home. Unlike some other oral electrolyte powders, E-charge is very palatable and readily accepted top dressed on feed ration.

Arginine - An amino acid and potent nitric oxide enhancer that causes vasodilation of both smooth and skeletal muscles. It dilates the vessels of the skeletal muscles, thus providing more blood flow. The vasodilating properties work well in horses that tie up and is extremely useful in treating "Bleeders" because it reduces resistance to the blood flow through the lungs (racehorsemeds.com)
Glutamine - Normally, the body produces sufficient glutamine, but when an animal has been through stressful situations, its body cannot produce enough glutamine on its own. Any animal under any kind of stress can benefit from increased amounts of glutamine. Supplementation can minimize the breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism.
Glycine - Helps form new muscle as well as aids in muscle recovery. Glycine is used in the synthesis of creatine, which is used as a direct fuel source in the body.
Inulin - A naturally occurring carbohydrate that is a form of soluble fiber. As inulin moves through the intestines, it also acts as a prebiotic essentially feeding all that good bacteria in the gut and helping it to grow. That means better digestion and a stronger immune system. It also helps improve the health of the gut by increasing the number of beneficial bacteria in the colon.
Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine - These three amino acids are critical to life and are particularly involved in stress, energy, and muscle metabolism.
Lysine - Is an amino acid that is a building block of protein. Lysine is important to proper metabolism, a healthy nervous system, and proper immune function. (Equine.com)
Octacosanol - Used to improve exercise performance including strength, stamina, and reaction time.
Vitamin E - Is a fat-soluble vitamin, which plays a role as the #1 antioxidant & immune booster in the body. It also helps to prevent free radical damage to specific fats in the body that are critical for health and is an important vitamin that is required for the proper function of many organs in the body. In addition to being an antioxidant, Vitamin E is a “potent anti-inflammatory when given in high levels,” according to a University of Florida study. Your horse does not make Vitamin E. Daily outside sources of Vitamin E are required to maintain the right blood and tissue levels to help protect cells. Nerve tissue especially requires Vitamin E to function properly. Horses quickly get deficient if they engage in moderate to high amounts of physical activity. (Holistichorse.com DVM Frank K Reilly)
