Natural Vitamin E During the Winter Months
Text alternative for – Natural Vitamin E During the Winter Months
Green grass is the greatest source of vitamin E.
Supplementation with vitamin E is most crucial during the winter when horses are fed diets almost exclusively composed of preserved forages.
Lack of vitamin E can result in:
- Sore, stiff muscles
- Poor immune system
- Neurological disorders
Multiple research studies have shown that vitamin E is often deficient in the diets of horses that do not have access to continual grazing on fresh green grass.
In the winter, horses should be supplemented with a natural vitamin E supplement such as Elevate®.
The vitamin E content of dried forages such as hay is severely diminished.
Vitamin E levels in hay drop 70% within the first week of being cut.
Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, limits the damage caused by everyday oxidative stress. It maintains healthy muscle and nerve functions and supports a strong immune system in horses of all ages.
