Natural Vitamin E helps keep a horse’s muscles, nerves and internal workings functioning smoothly. Natural Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells from free radicals. It boosts the immune system, improves blood circulation, supports the cardiovascular system, fights inflammation and increases the amount of oxygen the body receives. Its benefits can also be seen in a shiny coat, healthy skin, hair & hooves. It helps to fight off bacterial and viral infections, therefore is an excellent choice for horses with Cushing's disease or other immune challenges.

Supplementation of natural vitamin E is essential for most horses because they cannot internally generate it, like they can other vitamins. In order to naturally receive adequate amounts of vitamin E, horses typically need to be on grass pasture for at least 12 hours a day, year round. For horses in sand lots, or on restricted pasture, Vitamin E supplementation can be crucial for them to thrive. 

Vitamin E is fat-soluble, therefore should be consumed with a healthy fat in order to be properly absorbed in the body. When offered as an add-on to our nuggets, the coconut oil assists with absorption.

*WARNING: In the rare case that your horse is anemic and on an iron supplement, avoid mixing any Vitamin E supplement with Iron supplements (hematinic) as it may negatively affect absorption rates. If you feed an Iron supplement along with Vitamin E, it is recommended that you feed them in separate doses (i.e., Vit E supplement in the morning and Iron supplement in the evening); this pattern avoids destroying the uptake of either supplement.
