Ideal for horses maintained on diets composed largely of processed grains and stored forages. Such feedstuffs usually have low vitamin E content; thus, horses require supplementation. Developed to provide horses with a highly bioavailable source of natural vitamin E - a powerful antioxidant that limits damage caused by everyday oxidative stress. It maintains healthy muscle and nerve function and supports a strong immune system in horses of all ages.
Each 7 gm dose contains min 1,000 IU vitamin E.
Directions: Feed daily at rate of 100-500 IU per 100 lbs body weight. Feeding level depends on type of horse, level of activity, and nutritional and management practices that affect vitamin E needs. Top-dress onto daily grain; Maintenance - 1 scoop; Stalled horses/Poor pasture - 1-2 scoops; Intense training - 3-5 scoops; Pregnant and lactating mares/Foals/Stallions - 3 scoops. 7 gm scoop enclosed.
Vitamin E is an essential nutrient for horses:
Vitamin E cannot be synthesized by the horse; therefore, it is considered an essential nutrient. The best source of vitamin E is fresh green grass; however, the potency of vitamin E declines very quickly once forages are harvested and dried.
Vitamin E requirements vary from situation to situation. 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, or those grazing on winter pasture. Performance horses with demanding workloads, growing horses and seniors can be exposed to increased levels of oxidative stress and therefore require higher levels of vitamin E in their diets. Studies reveal that horses challenged by neurological disease benefit from supportive natural vitamin E.
Elevate Maintenance Powder supplies a horse with a highly absorbable and readily available source of natural vitamin E that quickly provides necessary nutrients. Does not contain other vitamins or minerals. Horse owners can safely adjust the amount fed to support horses with high vitamin E requirements without worrying about causing imbalances.
