Vitamin E has antioxidant properties and selenium is vital for the maintenance of normal muscle tissue and maintaining the stability of red blood cells and the vascular system. A combination of vitamin E and selenium is important for the muscular health of performance horses.

An excess of selenium is toxic, so supplementation should be considered carefully and the total percentage available in the daily diet should be noted.

For high levels of performance or for horses that are prone to muscle stiffness or cramp – use Tye-Gard.

When should you feed Vitamin E & Selenium?

  • To horses in high levels of work
  • To horses on highly nutritious diets
  • To horses on diets high in cod liver, linseed or corn oil

How does Vitamin E & Selenium work?
Vitamin E and selenium are co-dependent in muscular health. Vitamin E is required to protect cells from damage by oxidation. It also acts with selenium as a body ‘stabiliser’ ensuring stability of red blood cells and maintaining the integrity of the vascular system.
