Feed supplement for horses. Vitamin E supplement.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant which has an important protective function in the body, since it has the ability to neutralise so called free radicals which break down the muscles during work. Vitamin E counteracts the oxidation in the body’s cells caused by free radicals – a process which, if not stopped, leads to cell damage. Vitamin E also helps supply oxygen to the muscles and in the formation of blood vessels. It is also important for the immune system and fertility.
When breathing in, the horse takes in greater amounts of free radicals the more it works, which means its need for vitamin E increases during hard work. The need varies depending on diet composition, training and the horse’s performance level. Other situations when there is a greater need for vitamin E is cooling down, feeding with new oats, acidic feed and pregnancy.
A lack of vitamin E in the diet can lead to muscle damage. Vitamin E is fat-soluble and is stored in the muscles, fat tissues and liver. It is important not to overdose vitamin E.
Does not contain selenium – especially produced to fulfil the vitamin E requirement in horses who get sufficient selenium via mineral feed, full feed, saltlicks etc.
