Vitamin-B Plus for horses supplement contains all the B-Complex vitamins needed to support and maintain excellent horse health and resilience. B vitamins are required for the normal metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and converting these foods into energy. Other functions include production of nucleic acids for DNA synthesis and interconversion of amino acids.

Adequate levels of B vitamins in the diet support tissues that either have high energy requirements or a high rate of tissue turnover. This includes the nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, skin, hooves and red blood cell production. Hard working horses have a high demand for B vitamins.

Well managed pasture, where the soil is healthy grows healthy grass with high levels of B vitamins however the process of curing forage into hay or haylage reduces the amounts of these water soluble vitamins. Also the action of soaking and rinsing hay to lower sugar contain to make forage suitable for laminitis prone horses also leaches these nutrients.
