What is natural vitamin E for horses?

Our Natural horse vitamin E is sold as powdered 25% vitamin E acetate adsorbate on silica and provides 250mg of natural RRR-alpha-tocopherol per gram equivalent to 500 IU per gram.

Vitamin E cannot be synthesized by the horse; therefore, it is considered an essential nutrient. Vitamin E is found in abundant amounts in green and growing horse pasture however between 30 – 80% of vitamin E is lost between cutting and baling of horse forage and this loss is continued while the forage is in storage due to the fragile nature of vitamin E. Winter horse pasture contains little to none of this vitamin so supplementation to equines is essential.

Many research studies have shown that vitamin E is likely to be deficient in the diets of horses that do not have access to continual grazing on fresh green grass, or those grazing on winter pasture. Researchers are continuing to examine the role of vitamin E in horse health, but in agriculture it has long been known that increased supplementation of vitamin E supports immune function in cattle. Research now suggests much higher levels of horse vitamin E supplementation than is commonly contained in many horse feed stuffs will be beneficial to maintaining and supporting equine health.

Performances horses with demanding workloads, growing horses and seniors or horses suffering from problems can be exposed to increased levels of oxidative stress and therefore may require significantly higher vitamin E level in their diets.

    I tried this on a whim back in November 2020 when my horse looked like he might be suffering from EPM (and in which it is generally accepted that EPM horses should generally be on high levels of vitamin e). It turned out it wasn’t an EPM episode however, and after about 2 weeks saw a marked difference. Even my vet noticed a difference after a few months on this and was commenting about how well he looked in himself (better than he’s ever looked). Come the spring I took him off (more like forgot to purchase but was a good experiment at any rate) and noticed a decline – he was looking weak and eventually very sad and disconnected with life. Put him back on at a fairly high IU level and, after about 2 weeks back on, is looking perky/bright eyed and “stronger”. I think he will need to stay on this year round

    Amazing products my friend bought some for her horse and let me also use it with my EMS horse to see if it would help him. Wow what a difference in him. Due to him not being able to have much grass and poor quality grass when he can have it this product filled the much needed gaps. He is an older horse with not a good immune system and this product has made a huge difference to him and thus he seems much better on his feet now and is getting the nutrients he needs due to poor grazing and soaked hay.

    My gelding is 21 and has PSSM which means his muscles can get sore after exertion. I’ve used this product to help his system clear the metabolites resulting from his genetic disease. I’ve tried other products but this one seems to help the most, especially in combination with fats.

    I tried this after trying quite a few natural vitamin E, products from different companies. This has been the best by far for helping my horses muscles
