Why do horses require Vitamin E supplementation?

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

  • Order as an Add-On option to our Nuggets; the coconut oil assists with absorption.
  • Offer in conjunction with our Grace’s Abundance or Camelina Seed Oil; the high fat content in either product will assist 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.
