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 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.

    Since feeding the Synthetic Vitamin E I have noticed softer muscles and even more energy when riding. I feed two scoops a day to my 16.2 hh 560 kg horse. She is usually in medium work. Jumped and hunts twice a month. The product comes well packed and wrapped (bubblewrap). I feed high amounts of copper and zinc and other minerals so didn’t notice a difference in her quality of feet at first as hers are good anyway. I would say that her mane and tail are growing faster though. Overall performance is higher.

    When I added your Vitamin E, my horses mane and fur got so much better.

    Top quality supplement. Really helps keep my horses in top condition

  4. Becky Jones

    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.

  5. Kelly Elliott

    Good supplement, especially for performance horses in hard work and travelling to competitions and being exposed to high-pressure environments.

  6. Sarah Whereat (verified owner)

    Excellent quality product and value for money. No problems feeding to my fussy horse. He is on restricted grass so this keeps him topped up on his vit E!

  7. Hilary Boughton (verified owner)

    I have used Vitamin E for my horse with and I now use it to help maintain healthy muscle. Forageplus Vitamin E always arrives quickly and is well packaged. I also like the fact that I can choose whatever size of scoop I want, or choose not to have one at all if I already have a scoop. Great product and great service.

  8. Annie Keetch (verified owner)

    Both my horses are on a grass free track system so naturally don’t have Vitamin E as they have no green forage. Since feeding Vitamin E their coats are much glossier but most of all the one who has a compromised immune system has shown improvement. Very pleased with this product!
