Bioavailable source of vitamin E & selenium
- One scoop provides 1 mg of organic selenium and 1,500 IU of natural vitamin E per serving
- Selenium & vitamin E work together to help neutralize damaging free radicals
Elevate SE was formulated to supply a combination of powerful antioxidants. Natural vitamin E and organic selenium yeast support healthy muscle, nerve, and reproductive functions, and help maintain a strong immune system.
Selenium works in concert with vitamin E to help defend the body’s cells from damaging oxidative byproducts known as free radicals. Free radicals are released during normal energy production. Selenium is a component of glutathione peroxidase, a beneficial enzyme that prevents free radicals from forming and destroys lipid peroxidases (non-beneficial enzymes), which damage cell membranes. Once damaged, cells no longer function properly, leaving horses susceptible to multiple health problems.
Horses use energy to fuel bodily functions and movement. The greater the demand for energy, the greater the number of free radicals produced. Your horse’s body is equipped to deal with small amounts of these oxidative byproducts, but as the demand for energy increases, so does your horse’s need for additional antioxidants like vitamin E and selenium. Hard-working horses, breeding stock, horses consuming feedstuffs low in selenium, or horses with certain muscle issues may require supplemental vitamin E and selenium.
This formula provides a highly bioavailable source of natural vitamin E and organic selenium to horses living in selenium-deficient areas of the country or to those that need additional antioxidant support. The organic selenium yeast found in Elevate Se is similar to that which horses would consume in a natural grazing situation. Because of its more natural form, horses absorb and retain more organic selenium in their tissues, ensuring it is readily available when needed.
