What is natural vitamin E for horses?
Our Natural Vitamin E for horses is sold as powdered 25% vitamin E acetate adsorbate on silica. 1 x 10ml scoop provides a minimum of 2000 iu.
The horse cannot synthesize vitamin E; 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 feedstuffs 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 levels in their diets.
