PRO B VITAMIN COMPLEX
Pro B Vitamin Complex includes the eight B vitamins that are considered essential.
A premixture for horses.
These B Vitamins Play important roles in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein, nerve transmission, energy metabolism and red blood cell production.
Adequate levels of B complex vitamins are needed for health and body function, playing important roles in performance, growth, reproduction, energy maintenance, nervous system, immune system, healthy skin, hair, eyes, gastrointestinal tract and liver function.
Supplementing B vitamins via the diet can be very effective. They are readily absorbed and utilised when needed and being water-soluble vitamins they are very safe and not at risk of over-supplementation.
Our Pro B Vitamin Complex contains the following B vitamins at optimum levels:
- Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) plays a major role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and protein. B1 is also required for fat metabolism.
- Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is essential for converting carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy as well as the production of immune cells.
- Vitamin B3 (Niacin) Supports optimal circulation, digestion, nerve function, and skin health.
- Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) is required to synthesize and metabolize proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
- Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is involved in amino acid metabolism and is essential for energy production, nervous system activity, and for blood production.
- Vitamin B7 (Biotin) Supports cell integrity and plays an important role in hoof horn quality as it optimizes the process of keratin production.
- Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) Is important for supporting cell turnover during periods of rapid growth such as foetal development, tissue repair, and regeneration of cells lining the intestinal wall and works closely with vitamin B12 to produce red blood cells and haemoglobin.
- Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) Promotes red blood cell production. It is involved in protein metabolism and in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates, aids in reproduction, and proper nervous system function.
