Horse Vitamin E Supplement: Why No Selenium

Horses needing high dose Vitamin E for EPM, PSSM, EDM, muscle problems, and eye problems CAN NOT USE Vitamin E/Selenium combination products due to it would create Selenium Toxicity.

A.  Health-E horse Vitamin E supplement is only pure Vitamin E and has no Selenium in it.  There is no toxicity in horses with high dose Vitamin E, so they can get over 10,000 IU a day for months.
B.  Selenium has a toxicity level in a 1000 pound horse of approximately 5 mg a day, so they should not be supplemented with more than 3 mg a day.
C.  Vitamin E/Selenium combinations all vary in the amount of Vitamin E is combined with 1 mg of Selenium.   Some have 200 IU Vitamin E with it, some have 625 IU Vitamin E with it.  It is not uniform.
D.  Example:  An EPM horse needs 10,000 IU a day of Vitamin E. If used a 625 IU Vitamin E plus 1 mg Selenium product, that is 16 scoops to get 10,000 IU of Vitamin E, but that is also 16 mg of Selenium.  Over 300% toxic overdose of Selenium.  With Health-E, it would be 2 scoops for 11,600 IU Vitamin E and done – safe, easy, low amount of scoops, tasty.


Horse Vitamin E Supplement: Free Veterinary Consults

1.  Health-E Horse Vitamin E Supplement users get free Veterinary consults with Dr. Reilly by email or phone anytime they need to discuss their horse’s case.  No other Vitamin E product comes close to this high standard.

Horse Vitamin E Supplement: Beats Grocery Store Capsules

blueribbonHealth-E horse Vitamin E supplement wins – 3 ways.

naturemadevite1.  Cost:

Health-E – 97 cents a day.

A.  Target – Nature Made – $1.08 a day – over 15% more cost.
B.  Kmart – Spring Valley – $1.09 a day – over 15% more cost.

2. StabilityMost grocery store brands have no expiration date.  No idea if any good.  Many brands do not have all 8 forms of Vitamin E, so again not sure.  Many brands are not ester stable – they may have no potency if exposed to light/heat.  Health-E horse Vitamin E supplement is freshness dated, ester stable, and stable in heat/light/air.

3.  Time – Health-E horse Vitamin E supplement is one (1) scoop and go – 5000 IU to your horse.  Capsules take time to poke with a needle, squeeze out oil.  Half of it ends up on your hands, on bucket walls, on your counter – lots of waste.


Horse Vitamin E Supplement – What conditions does Health-E  help?

Health-E horse Vitamin E supplement is useful year round to keep your horse healthy.


1. Horse Vitamin E supplement – Needed on an all hay diet: You can not get the full daily requirements of your horse’s Vitamin E from hay, cubes, or pellets.

A. Vitamin E content in hay and drying condition.
“Decrease in Vitamin E seen within 10 days of drying.”
“Rate of Vitamin E destruction was greatest (nearly 60%) within 4 days in hay dried in a swath and artificially moistened.”

bluestarClick here to see Dr. Thafvelin’s article in J. of Dairy Science, 1966,  Vitamin E and Linolenic Acid Content of Hay as related to Different Drying Conditions.

B.  Manitoba Department of Agriculture – Vitamin E requirements in cattle.
“Stored feeds do not contain adequate Vitamin E to meet animal requirements.”
“Supplemental Vitamin E was required in all rations that contained dry hay.”
“Vitamin E levels in any stored feed decreases in time.”

bluestarClick here  to see article: Vitamin E Requirements for Finishing Cattle and Beef Cows.



2. Horse Vitamin E Supplement – Needed in stall bound/on dirt lot: Horses stall bound in winter, or in dirt lots need supplemented Horse Vitamin E. It takes at least 6 hours of grazing in a quality pasture to get Vitamin E requirements. If under this amount, your horse needs Health-E.


3. Horse Vitamin E Supplement- Needed in Winter: By November, there is no Vitamin E in the grass until April – Spring Time. Horses go Vitamin E deficient in the blood stream by December if not supplemented.

A. Vitamin E is an essential equine nutrient.
“Dr. Maenpaa observed seasonal differences in blood alpha tocopherol (Vitamin E) concentrations, in mares and foals from when on pasture – June to October, then on hay/oats in Winter.” By April or May, both mares and foals had Vitamin E blood levels below normal.

bluestarClick here to see Dr. Ed Kane’s article from DVM 360 Magazine, 2004 on Vitamin E is Essential Equine Nutrient.

B. Have a broodmare with Mastitis?  One study has incidence dropping 57% when on Vitamin E (from 41% to 26%)  in cattle study.  While another study had it dropping 56%.
