Vitamin C (asorbic acid) to boost immune system of horses
Vit C (asorbic acid) to assist the horse immune system when ran down or ill. Supporting horses prone to tying up or with arthritic joints / lack of joint mobility or allergies.
Healthy horses don't require supplementing with Vit C on a daily base, as horses produce naturally their own Vit C. Most mammals, including horses are able to convert glucose to vit C (gulonolactone oxidase), except humans who lack this enzyme. Read more on our blog regards supplementing with Vit C, click here.
Adding extra Vit C to their feed may compromise the horse natural production, as they produce this enzyme in their liver, therefore it isn't recommended to supplement any extra Vit C, other then a course of 6 to 14 days.
With older horses when their liver has problems producing the enzyme naturally, you could consider to feed daily a low dose.
