Vitamin E is the #1 antioxidant in the body, protecting individual cells every day. It is in every cell of your horse’s body and unique in being able to cross into spinal cord, brain, liver, eyes, heart, skin, and joints.
In addition to being an antioxidant, Vitamin E is a “potent anti-inflammatory when given in high levels,” according to a University of Florida study. Your horse does not make Vitamin E. Daily outside sources of Vitamin E are required to maintain the right blood and tissue levels to help protect cells. Nerve tissue especially requires Vitamin E to function properly. Horses quickly get deficient if they engage in moderate to high amounts of physical activity.
VITAMIN E IN GRASS:
Fresh forage (grass) has a good amount of Vitamin E, but requires about 12 hours a day of grazing to get to the needed Vitamin E amounts. If your horse is on grass only a few hours a day, on a dirt lot, or has teeth issues and can’t graze correctly, they will be Vitamin E deficient.
SUPPLEMENTATION IS NEEDED:
Vitamin E supplementation has been proven to increase antibody levels which can protect them from sickness and help ward off infections from Cushing’s disease. In broodmares, it is shown that supplemented Vitamin E did pass through the milk and increase Vitamin E levels in foals, and also increased immunity cell levels from the mare to the foal. This can avoid many earlystage infections in foals.
HOW MUCH VITAMIN E DOES A HORSE NEED?
The amount depends on several factors. The more the horse is exercised, the more Vitamin E is needed due to more free radicals being produced; hence more Vitamin E is used up to protect cell membranes.
~ To survive: 1000-2000 units (IU) a day
~ Engaging in regular exercise: 5000 units a day
~ Neurological problems like EPM, EDM, and EMND, PSSM: 10,000 units a day
~ Broodmares: 5000 units a day
~ Older (20+) or Cushing’s horses: 5000 units a day
Horses have NO TOXICITY problem with Vitamin E even at very high levels, making it the safest vitamin to supplement. (Vitamin E information from holistichorse.com)
