A highly absorbable organic form of selenium for horses produced from a natural yeast strain. Provides a highly available 2 mg per gram of horse selenium with no fillers or additives. Selenium is an important trace mineral for whole horse body health.
It is an extremely potent antioxidant involved in the biosynthesis of selenoproteins important for protecting cell structures and cell membranes. Selenium is often shown as being low in forage analysis but supplementation should be used with care as only very tiny amounts are needed in the horse’s diet.
Benefits of selenium for horses
- Supports the health of the brain/nervous system, heart skeletal muscles and rapidly growing tissues
- Maintains healthy muscle performance and recovery in hard working horses
- Vital for healthy immune function
CAUTION high levels of selenium can be toxic. Either use forage analysis or check whole blood selenium before supplementation
Forageplus does not advise the feeding of separate minerals unless levels have been checked through carrying out a forage analysis. The ratios of minerals are important and feeding one mineral without supplementing correct levels of another can be detrimental to horse health. If you are uncertain of mineral levels then feeding either a Forageplus Equine Balancer or carrying out analysis of forage is wise.
