Natural Vitamin C for Horses
Although Vitamin C is manufactured within a horse’s body by utilizing liver glucose, middle-age to senior horses often have difficulty producing enough Vitamin C to address their nutritional needs. A Vitamin C supplement for horses helps prevent free radical damage, contributes to connective tissue health and is involved in the regeneration of other antioxidants, including Vitamin E. Vitamin C is also required for hormone and collagen synthesis, bone calcification and converting Vitamin D3 to calcitrol. Vitamin C is also required for horses to synthesize three amino acids vital to the making of proteins: Lysine, proline and tryptophan.
Equine Vitamin C Supplement
Horse Vitamin C also supports collagen synthesis. A protein essential for creating a matrix within joints and bones to which nutrients can attach, collagen is also a key component in hooves.
Vitamin C also provides antioxidant support
Powdered Vitamin C is easily sprinkled on food to supplement your horse’s diet. Since water-soluble Vitamin C is excreted freely in urine, it is recommended that a dosage of Vitamin C for horses is divided between meals to reduce the excess loss of the vitamin through urine.
