Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant. It protects muscle cells and blood vessels against the toxic waste products of cell metabolism know as free radicals. It also protects the red blood cells.
It has been shown that Vitamin E supplementation can reduce nervousness in some horses. It is also indicated to aid horses that are prone to tying up, especially in conjunction with Equine Selenium K.
Horses low in good pasture or green feed intake are in need of Vitamin E supplementation.
Vitamin E is also necessary in the diet of breeding stallions and mares to maintain fertility.
Do not add to the same feed as an iron supplement as the vitamin may be damaged and therefore made ineffective.
