- Low dose rate provides a high intake of natural vitamin E and can easily be syringed if needed
Studies by Kentucky Equine Research have shown that the form and source of vitamin E make a difference to horses. Nano-E® is a novel natural vitamin E source that benefits all horses with a rapid absorption rate and increased bioavailability.
Using Nano-E® has many benefits. For broodmares additional vitamin E in the last 30 days of pregnancy improves both her vitamin E status and that of her foal. Colostrum quality is also improved with higher antibody levels found when supplemented.
Broodmare fertility is also a consideration for additional vitamin E, particularly for mares covered early in the season where pasture contribution of natural E will be low. This is particularly important for mares with reduced uterine defence mechanisms and may also be of benefit to mares with a history of placental dysfunction.
Stallion fertility also benefits from specific supplementation of vitamin E. Both libido and sperm quality have been linked with vitamin E. Use of Nano-E® during the covering season is recommended for all stallions, in particular those with fertility related concerns such as low sperm motility.
For competition horses and racehorses Nano-E® is recommended for using during periods of increased training or stress, and can be used to preload the body prior to competition or racing. Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant with well documented benefits to muscle function and reduction of damage to muscle tissue.
