Vitamin E works synergistically with selenium and is involved in healing, especially in the healing of nerve tissue.
It helps enhance immunity and improve recovery from stress.
Selenium is an important antioxidant and helps to speed recovery from oxidation caused by muscle function and fatigue. Its antioxidant effects help to reduce the free radicals produced by inflammation from arthritis and disease. Do not feed this product if you are feeding other products which provide sufficient selenium.
Selenium deficiency can cause tying up of muscles, reduce performance and fertility-issues. Severe deficiency can cause death (white muscle disease). In most cases selenium deficiency is sub-clinical. In this case selenium deficiencies show either no or only subtle signs (such as slightly stiff muscles). In severe deficiency the horse becomes symptomatic usually with muscle dysfunction like tying up. When the symptoms become visible it is called a clinical deficiency.
