“With grape (seed) extract”
For recovery after training, for stiff muscles and as daily maintenance. Vitamin E based on wheat germ oil, natural like vitamin E and grape (seed) extract. Grape (seed) extract is a stronger antioxidant than vitamin E.
Only natural and natural-equal vitamin E are properly absorbed by a horse. HELTIE Horse® Vitamin E therefore contains wheat germ oil. Wheat germ oil has the highest amount of vitamin E that occurs naturally, namely 1000 IU vitamin E per liter. Wheat germ oil also contains omega 6, which promotes the absorption of vitamin E. In addition, this supplement contains added vitamin E (RRR-α-tocopherol). A natural vitamin E that can also be well absorbed by the horse.
The added grape extract enhances the effect of vitamin E, as it is a 50x stronger antioxidant than vitamin E and also 20x stronger than vitamin C.
Horses get the daily required vitamin E from the grass. When the horses won’t get fresh grass anymore in the autumn, they get too less vitamin E. The basic vitamin E requirements for an adult horse that is not in training is 500 to 1000 IU per day. With light work, the requirement rises to 800 to 1,600 IU per day and with heavy work to 2,000 IU per day.
Per 10ml HELTIE horse® Vitamin E you give 1100 IU of vitamin E and on top of that is the strong effect of the grape extract.
