Equestrizone’s Vitamin E and Selenium for horses is a vital addition to the diet of hard-working and athletic horses as well as those who regularly take part in competitions and those with muscle challenges. It supports healthy muscles, muscle recovery and muscle development. It is also a key supplement for breeding and pregnant mares.
Importantly, our supplement contains natural vitamin E which has many advantages over cheaper synthetic vitamin E. Synthetic vitamin E is not absorbed as easily or as completely as the natural version. The bioavailability of naturally-sourced vitamin E is believed to be twice that of synthetic vitamin E. Natural vitamin E also stays in the body longer than the synthetic version.
Selenium is vital to maintain normal, healthy muscle tissue and also to keep red blood cells and the vascular system stable.
Horses whose muscles are regularly being exercised are more vulnerable to tissue damage caused by free radicals attacking membranes and cells. The antioxidant qualities of vitamin E and selenium work in harmony to fight off such attacks. They can interrupt the body’s production of free radicals. Hard-working muscles use up more fats for energy – and this increases the risk of tissue damage in a diet limited in vitamin E. Our supplement supports natural immunity and protects the cells of the muscles.
Giving this supplement to a pregnant horse also enables the immunity to be transferred to its foal. Vitamin E and selenium are both vitally important for natural growth and development and fertility and reproduction.
Vitamin E for horses has been shown to support the delivery of a good supply of oxygen to the lungs, and therefore can help performance as well as muscle function. Lack of vitamin E in the diet leads to a much higher risk of muscle damage during exercise, as well as muscle stiffness and soreness and a greater likelihood of succumbing to illness and disease. There is an increased breakdown of cell membranes – including the muscles, heart and brain – when the body does not have access to enough vitamin E.
