What is Vitamin E?

Vitamin E can be stored in fat tissues to be used when needed. It mainly acts as an antioxidant that protects cells from damage, and is essential for organ function and a healthy immune system in horses. Vitamin E supplements can support horses that lack energy, are prone to sickness, struggle to recover, or have muscle soreness. It is critical to intake a sufficient amount of Vitamin E as deficiencies of Vitamin E can lead to serious consequences. Since it is stored in the fat tissues, horses with less fat are recommended to ingest more fat and take supplements like Wild Gold’s Camelina Oil to prevent deficiencies. 

Benefits of Vitamin E in Camelina Oil

Firstly, Vitamin E improves equine immune function that helps horses prevent illness and promotes quicker recovery. Vitamin E assists in the removal of cell-damaging radicals and fights off bacterial threats. 

Vitamin E also helps prevent oxidative damage which is one of the primary causes of muscle soreness. 

Additionally, Vitamin E contributes to preventing long-term, severe neurological disorders including equine motor neuron disease (EMND) and equine degenerative myeloencephalopathy (EDM). 

In many cases an equine diet like lush pasture grazing provides sufficient Vitamin E, but some horses might need additional support depending on their environment and seasonality. Wild Gold’s cold-pressed Camelina Oil contains natural Vitamin E, which enhances the immune system and acts as a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, can be a great source of support.
