Horses-are-the-biggest-athlete-on-earth

Horses are the biggest athlete on earth.

They have 700 different skeletal muscles. In fact, 60% of their body weight is muscle.

During exercise, muscle metabolism produces free radicals. When these free radicals are allowed to accumulate, they can cause cell damage that limits performance.

Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals before they do any harm. Natural vitamin E is one of the most bioactive antioxidants utilized by the horse. Hardworking horses must have an adequate amount of readily available vitamin E in their systems in order to neutralize the free radicals produced during training and competition.

Natural vitamin E is an essential nutrient and must be provided in the diet. Grass is the best source of vitamin E for horses, but they must graze for at least 17 hours per day on good pasture to meet minimum requirements. Once grass is cut for hay, vitamin E is lost very quickly.

To maintain optimal antioxidant levels in your performance horses, supplement with Elevate® natural vitamin E.
