Vitamin E & Selenium Pellets for Horses
Vitamin E and selenium are core components in your horse’s health diet, well-being and performance when eventing, whether in the ring or on the trail. Our Vitamin E and selenium pellets for horses offer an easy and tasty way to ensure your horse stays in top condition throughout the year.
Vitamin E and Selenium play a significant role in your horse’s overall health. Horses don’t produce either mineral naturally, so it’s crucial that they receive both in their daily diet to maintain optimal wellness.
Purpose of Vitamin E and Selenium in Horses
Both selenium and Vitamin E play vital roles in your horse’s short- and long-term health. Providing antioxidant support, they help fight free radicals and protect against free radical damage.
The individual roles of Vitamin E and selenium include:
Vitamin E: Nerve tissues, as well as your horse’s circulatory system, rely on Vitamin E. The antioxidant supports blood and tissue levels which helps decrease oxidative damage. Vitamin E also helps support the horse’s immune system too.
Selenium: Performance and endurance horses rely on their muscles to work. Selenium serves as a muscle protein, ensuring your horse has the strength to work. This mineral is also crucial for developing their adaptive immune system.
Because horses aren’t producers of Vitamin E or selenium, they rely on grazing. They need to graze around 12 hours per day to receive enough nutrients. For many owners, that’s not a viable option, which is why they use our all-natural supplements.
Symptoms of Vitamin E & Selenium Deficiency in Horses
Vitamin E and Selenium deficiency have symptoms you often don’t associate with a nutrient deficiency.
A blood test can determine if your horse is deficient. However, if your horses are mostly stabled or pregnant, lactating or under two years of age, they’re at an increased risk for having a shortage of these vital nutrients.
