Natural E 5,000 is a highly concentrated natural vitamin E pellet to be used as a daily support when higher levels of Vitamin E are indicated. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports a healthy immune system and helps neutralize free radicals, the damaging by-products of normal cellular activity. Natural E 5,000 provides 5,000 IU of natural vitamin E per scoop. Does not contain other vitamins or minerals so daily feeding levels can be easily adjusted to meet your horse’s individual needs without worrying about causing imbalances. It is an excellent way to help provide antioxidant protection for all ages and classes of horses. Horses without access to pasture, as well those in heavy work or under stress, should receive supplemental vitamin E.
- A study from the University of Minnesota Equine Neuromuscular Diagnostic Laboratory, as reported by Dr. Carrie Finno, states that Natural Vitamin E may be up to 2 - 2 1⁄2 times more bioavailable than synthetic formulas.
- Pellet form
Vitamin E (Natural): Natural E is approx. 2.5 times more bioavailable than synthetic vitamin E (4,000 IUs natural vitamin E approximates 10,000 IUs of synthetic vitamin E). Most studies/research indicate 8,000 IU’s -10,000 IU’s (or approx. 3,000-5,000 IU of Natural Vitamin E) during/post therapy for immune support. Vitamin E is considered the most important antioxidant and works closely with selenium to protect the body from the oxidative stress of exercise and illness. Found in high amounts in fresh pasture, levels begin to decay the moment pasture is cut for hay. That is why any horse that does not have access to grass, regardless of its activity level or health, would be a candidate for vitamin E supplementation. Horses are not very efficient in storing vitamin E and deficiency may be accelerated if the diet is deficient in selenium.
What is the difference between Natural Vitamin E and synthetic?
MVP: Vitamin E (Natural): Vitamin E is powerful antioxidant. Natural E is approx. 2.5 times more bioavailable than synthetic vitamin E (4,000 IUs natural vitamin E approximates 10,000 IUs of synthetic vitamin E). Natural E is recognized to be better absorbed and pass through blood brain barrier. Most studies/research indicate 7,500-10,000 IUs of vitamin E during/post therapy for immune support.
Will this help with the development of hind end and topline muscles? if not, what would you recommend for a performance horse in heavy work
MVP: Natural E 5,000 provides 5,000 IUs of natural vitamin E per scoop to support normal nerve & muscle function as well as a healthy immune system. While it does support muscle health, if you are looking to address the normal building of lean muscle, we recommend something with amino acids in it such as In-Sync 4.

How long will a 2lb bag last?
MVP: A 2lb bag contains 32 - 1 oz sevings (5,000 IU's). There are 64 - 1/2 oz servings (2,500 IU's).
My vet recommended vitamin E to help support my 22 year old warmblood dressage horse's neurological health. I find that this product helps keep him going for maintenance but also helps reduce any down time during flare ups making me able to continue showing and advancing in our skills. I also like the natural vitamin E much better than the synthetic. Great product and I buy the largest size to get the best price.
Willow has been on the natural vitamin-E 5000 for about 4 months as my vet recommended that I give her supplemental vitamin-E to help with an old injury. The results have blown me away. Her muscle tone and coat look amazing plus she is moving better than ever. She is 18 years old and I have gotten comments from some friends, saying she looks years younger. My program also includes high-quality hay, a ration balancer, and correct long and low exercise. With that being said this supplement is one of those things I will do for every horse I own from now on.
My quarter polo mare has muscle tightness and issues making it difficult to continue using her. Vet recommendations were supplemental magnesium and vitamin E. I now have my 18 year old mare back on the polo field thriving with this product. Much better than the synthetic product. Thanks MVP.
We love this product! Horses look and feel great which makes this owner very happy. Thank you for such a awesome product that they will eat and be protected by. Win for them and for me.
Great source to get Vit E levels up after deficient blood work.
Great Product! My Gelding Loves it. He has been getting this supplement for over 6 months now and he looks for it come feed time. His immune system is stronger and I believe this supplement has been a tremendous help with his recovery.
I started my gelding on this about 3 months ago per my vet. My gelding loves this stuff and he know longer has a sore back and his immune system is stronger. I love this product!
I started using this product a couple of months ago. The breeder recommended natural vitamin E. He recovers faster from strenuous exercise and has a soft shiny coat.
