Biotin - A water-soluble B vitamin that plays in important role as an enzymatic cofactor in metabolism, meaning it is an inorganic complement to the enzyme reaction involved in metabolism. It is a popular nutritional supplement administered to horses to promote and maintain the growth of healthy hooves and coats. (Thehorse.com - biotin does it work? Written by Stacey Oke, DVM)
Octacosanol - used to improve exercise performance including strength, stamina, and reaction time.
Vitamin E - Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, which plays a role as the #1 antioxidant & immune booster in the body. It also helps to prevent free radical damage to specific fats in the body that are critical for health and is an important vitamin that is required for the proper function of many organs in the body. In addition to being an antioxidant, Vitamin E is a “potent anti-inflammatory when given in high levels,” according to a University of Florida study. Your horse does not make Vitamin E. Daily outside sources of Vitamin E are required to maintain the right blood and tissue levels to help protect cells. Nerve tissue especially requires Vitamin E to function properly. Horses quickly get deficient if they engage in moderate to high amounts of physical activity. (Holistichorse.com DVM Frank K Reilly)
Zinc - The most important job of zinc (Zn) in your horse's body is to be a part of enzymes. It is a part of many important enzymes, including those responsible for insulin production, blood clotting, and wound healing. Zinc is required by animals for numerous functions including: immunity, reproduction, skin and hoof integrity, muscle development, and milk production. (Understanding-horse-nutrition.com)
