Description

VITAMIN C is involved in a number of metabolic functions in the body, as well as the formulation of collagen, red blood cells and the body’s anti-stress hormone cortisol. Horses obtain Vitamin C from green feeds, and normal daily needs are synthesized in the liver. It is an antioxidant. Antioxidants donate electrons to highly volatile, damaging molecules known as free radicals. Free radical production is accelerated during any type of physical or mental stress, muscle and joint inflammation, allergies, illness/injury, or exposure to toxins and pollutants. But once free radicals receive their missing electron from vitamin C, they are neutralized – calmed down – and are no longer harmful.
While its antioxidant capability is paramount to your horse’s overall health, vitamin C protects your horse in two other significant ways:
Collagen synthesis. Collagen is a protein that creates a matrix within bones and joints to which minerals and other substances can attach. It is also part of connective tissue and maintains blood vessel integrity. Therefore enough vitamin C is important for keeping bones and joints healthy, reducing tooth loss, as well as preventing ruptured capillaries than can lead to abscesses.
Natural antihistamine. Horses that suffer from respiratory or skin allergies will benefit from additional vitamin C. As an antihistamine, it reduces the histamine response, making your horse more tolerant to allergens and hence, more comfortable.

This product doesn’t contain any known substances that may contravene any rules of competition or racing.
