An antioxidant supplement for horses requiring immune support.
Helps protect against tissue damage from oxidative stress resulting from free radicals generated during equine exercise, immune system activity or environmental exposures. Suggested minimum trial period is 30 days.
Grapeseed Extract is an inexpensive, very potent antioxidant, and is a good companion product to use with other supplements such as joint or immune formulas for its antioxidant protection from the damaging effects of free radicals. 100% pure extract. Granular.
Use at the rate of 1.25 g - 2.5 g daily.
1 scoop = approximately 2.5 g (included)
The Proanthocyanidins found in grapes are particularly potent antioxidants, having 20 times the activity of Vitamin C and are 50 times more potent than Vitamin E.
Antioxidants are substances that inhibit the oxidation of molecules, which results in the loss of electrons. Molecules that have a free, unpaired electron are called free radicals. Free radicals are very reactive and attack other molecules in their quest to regain their lost electrons.
The horse's body uses free radicals normally in a variety of reactions including energy generation, immune system responses, and as signaling molecules for nerves, or to control blood vessel dilation. The body also uses vitamins (A, E, C), antioxidant substances like Glutathione and antioxidant enzyme systems to control the levels of free radicals. If imbalance occurs between the generation of free radicals and antioxidant control, tissue damage can result.
