Complex B vitamins are a valuable resource to the body and can be added to equine diet through plants, as well as being synthesized naturally within the body. However, one B Vitamin, B12, is not available in plants and only synthesized in the horse’s hindgut.
Supplementing B12 is beneficial for horses in a number of ways, including:
- Acting as a 'pick me up' for any horse who shows signs of being 'flat' or fatigued
- Maintaining high energy levels without making a horse 'fizzy' or over-excited. Omega B12 provides the correct nutrition to sustain high energy production whilst also keeping a level head
- Vitamin B12 is vital for maintaining enzyme function and sustaining healthy fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolisms. It is also required for the normal formation of blood cells and amino acids. Its balanced presence in body helps maintain high physical health and wellbeing.
