When health issues arise, always seek the advice of a licensed veterinarian who can help you choose the correct course of action for your horse. Supplements are intended to maintain healthy systems and support recovery and healing. They are not intended to treat or cure illness or injury.
Vitamin E requirements vary depending on an individual horse’s age, diet, health, reproductive status, and workload.
Multiple research studies have shown that vitamin E is often deficient in the diets of horses that do not have access to continual grazing on fresh green grass, or those grazing on winter pasture.
Performances horses with demanding workloads, growing horses, breeding stock, and seniors can be exposed to increased levels of oxidative stress and therefore require higher levels of vitamin E in their diets.
Studies reveal that there may be link between some neurological diseases and vitamin E deficiency in horses.
Veterinarians frequently recommend Elevate® Concentrate to support healthy vitamin E levels in:
Elevate® Concentrate can be used to provide long-term natural vitamin E supplementation to horses challenged by, or at risk for, the following conditions:

Vitamin E is the most powerful antioxidant in the equine diet. But not all forms of the vitamin are created equally. Most supplements contain synthetic vitamin E (dl-alpha-tocopherol acetate), which is not as potent as natural vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol acetate). Compared with synthetic vitamin E, the body can more efficiently transport and deliver natural vitamin E to targeted tissues. Current research in several species, including horses, shows that natural vitamin E is two to three times more potent than synthetic.
Assessment of vitamin E status is accomplished by measuring levels in plasma. In a recent study, plasma levels of horses consuming three types of vitamin E were compared: synthetic vitamin E acetate powder, natural vitamin E acetate powder (Elevate Concentrate), and natural, water-soluble vitamin E liquid (Elevate W.S.).Dramatic increases were noted in horses fed natural, water-soluble vitamin E liquid (Elevate W.S.). From baseline values, blood levels rose an astonishing 207% when horses were given 8,000 IU of water-soluble vitamin E liquid (Elevate W.S). Blood levels of natural vitamin E acetate powder (Elevate Concentrate) also increased, but not as quickly. This study did show that plasma levels fell slightly when horses were fed synthetic vitamin E powder.
The feeding level depends on the type of horse, level of activity, and nutritional and management practices that affect vitamin E needs.
