Elevate Water Soluble Natual Vitamin E

Horse Health Product Spotlight


Elevate is a revolutionary liquid supplement that provides unsurpassed vitamin E nutrition to horses of all ages. Vitamin E contributes richly to the well-being of the horse and plays an imperative role in immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, and reproductive functions. In addition, vitamin E is an essential component of body-wide antioxidant defenses.

Natural Vitamin E

Elevate is a source of natural vitamin E. Researchers have established that natural forms of the vitamin are superior to synthetic versions, as they are more digestible and preferentially metabolized by horses.

Water-Soluble Vitamin E Is Most Effective

The vitamin E in elevate is water-soluble, which allows it to be absorbed efficiently from the gastrointestinal tract. Because of this rapid absorption, vitamin E is readily dispersed into the blood and to outlying tissues. When other forms of vitamin E are fed (e.g., oil-based or emulsified forms), the digestive system must break down the vitamin E before it can be used, thus delaying absorption.

Wide Scope of Application

Elevate is appropriate for horses of all ages and breeds. In particular, Elevate is essential for horses that do not have regular access to pasture. The vitamin E content of dried forages such as hay and hay cubes is severely diminished, with such forages losing more than 75% of their vitamin content upon harvesting and storage. Therefore, vitamin E supplementation is most critical for equine athletes that are confined to stalls and fed diets composed largely of preserved forages (such as racehorses and show horses).

Performance Horses

Hardworking horses require optimal levels of vitamin E to ensure proper muscle function. Equine athletes that do not possess adequate stores of vitamin E may experience muscle soreness or stiffness during exercise and prolonged recovery following strenuous work.

Broodmares and Foals

Recent research has lauded the use of vitamin E on breeding farms. Mares supplemented with vitamin E have shown increased passive transfer of antibodies to foals, which ensures strength of the neonatal immune system. There is also increasing evidence that vitamin E supplementation may boost fertility in mares.
