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.
