Vitamin E is essential for equine immune function, cardiovascular health, muscle function, exercise recovery and neurological health. Vitamin E is best known for its role as an antioxidant in horses, protecting all cells and tissues from oxidative damage. Our Natural Vitamin E supplement provides this nutrient in a form that is most efficiently absorbed and utilized in tissues.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that binds free radicals which are unstable molecules that can damage DNA, cell membranes and other structures within cells. Vitamin E supports the health and function of cells by neutralizing free radicals before they can cause damage.
Oxidative damage in horses due to low vitamin E status may present itself as muscle soreness or slow recovery from exercise and illness.
Vitamin E must be included in the horse’s diet because it can not be made by the horse’s body. A mature, 500kg horse needs about 500 IU of vitamin E per day. This requirement is higher in older horses and horses that are sick to support their increased needs for antioxidant defenses. Vitamin E requirements are also higher for equine athletes engaging in high-intensity exercise.
Pasture grazing is typically a good source of Vitamin E for horses because it is abundant in fresh grasses and legumes. As soon as the plant is cut, vitamin E begins to degrade.
Hay in storage will continue to lose vitamin E, making hay generally deficient in this nutrient. Equine diets that are largely hay-based will likely require supplemental vitamin E.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that includes eight different compounds. This supplement is composed of pure D-alpha-tocopherol, also known as natural vitamin E, which has much higher bioavailability compared to other sources.
Vitamin E and selenium are both potent antioxidants that work through similar mechanisms to protect horses from free radical damage. Mad Barn’s Omneity and AminoTrace+ are formulated to meet your horse’s vitamin E and selenium requirements to optimize antioxidant protection.
