Nano E Provides Natural Vitamin E For Your Horse.


Kentucky Equine Research Nano E is an efficient way to provide your horse with this essential antioxidant. 


Availability and necessity of Vitamin E in equine diets is well established. When healthy horses are given frequent access to fresh green forage such as good-quality pasture, there is little need for supplementation of vitamin E. However, many horses today are managed without fresh forage in their diets. These horses can survive in such management systems, but they will likely not be consuming sufficient vitamin E for optimal health.  Research has revealed that vitamin E varies in its potency, based on whether it is natural or synthetic. The chemical structures of synthetic and natural vitamin E differ. Natural vitamin E is recognized as "d-alpha-tocopherol," and is made up of a single isomer. Synthetic vitamin E, termed "dl-alpha tocopherol," contains a mixture of eight different isomers, four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Of these eight, only one is molecularly equivalent to natural vitamin E.


Sources of natural vitamin E, especially Nano E™,  more effectively raise serum levels when compared to synthetic. Fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin E must be offered to horses in a way that maximizes absorption. Because it is not mixed with other ingredients, the vitamin E in Nano E™ does not need to be protected by esterification, but it must become water-soluble or dispersible in liquid.  Researchers developed a method by which fat-soluble vitamins can be absorbed with great effi ciency. Because of its oily nature, vitamin E is hydrophobic (water-shunning). To overcome this, researchers use proprietary technology to encapsulate the vitamin E in nanoparticles and then surround each nanoparticle with a hydrophilic (water-loving) outer layer. The hydrophilic outer layer, as illustrated in allows the nanoparticles to be rapidly and evenly released in water-based environments such as the gastrointestinal tract.


Kentucky Equine Research Nano E™ is ideal for horses:


  • That do not have access to pasture
  • Asked to work strenuously
  • Used for breeding
  • Recovering from neurological issues
  • Experiencing stress from travel, relocation, weaning or any stress-inducing event
  • Recovering from injury and on stall rest
  • Any horse in any situation can benefit from Nano E

Daily use: Give 4-8 ml per 1100 lbs by mouth or top dress.
