There are times when our horses immune system need a some additional support. Immune maximises the effect of the powerful herb Echinacea, by combining it with potent natural anti-oxidants Vitamin C, Natural Vitamin E, Grapeseed and Rosehip & readily absorbable chelated minerals which support the immune system and aid red blood cell production.
What's in the bag?
Vitamin C is a vital antioxidant essential for immunity and for protection against free radicals. 5 grams has more Vitamin C than 100 oranges!
Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a powerful antioxidant which comes in natural and synthetic forms. Natural forms are absorbed better and are therefore more effective. Vitamin E is essential for immunity and horses cannot make Vitamin E themselves.
Rose Hips are included as an excellent natural source of Vitamins A, C and manganese.
Echinacea root powder (Echinacea purpurea) a powerful and proven immuno-supportive herb for the natural defences of the horse. The name Echinacea comes form the Greek word echino, meaning hedgehog, and refers to the spiny brown central cone of the flower.
Glutamine is one of 21 amino acids. It helps the gut and immune system, and is commonly used in human medicine for these purposes.
Grapeseed flour (Vitis vinifera) a powerful antioxidant which also helps circulation, collagen formation and bone strength.
Oregano is a familiar herb which has many health benefits, as well as being very palatable it supports the immune system and digestion.

Vitamin E is central to muscle and nerve function, heart health, immune function, lung health and skin health.
Horses cannot make Vitamin E and must get it from their diet. It is therefore essential that sufficient Vitamin E is fed or supplemented.
Many Vitamin E supplements use the much cheaper synthetic forms of Vitamin E. Natural E, as the name suggests provides a natural source of Vitamin E which has up to double the biological activity than synthetic forms of Vitamin E. Natural E also contains organic selenium which is essential for the optimal activity of Vitamin E.
Vitamin E is higher in fresh forage than in preserved forages. Vitamin E levels in commercial dry horse feeds are naturally very low due to processing and so Vitamin E must be supplemented. As Vitamin E is a relatively expensive feed ingredient the levels added may be on the low side.
