Designed as a natural source of Vitamin E and organic Selenium for horses.
Paradox is a highly palatable pellet containing 1,250 IU Vitamin E and 50 ppm Selenium per daily dose. Vitamin E and Selenium both function as antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals, the damaging by-products of normal cellular activity. Selenium and Vitamin E deficiencies have been associated with several disease and conditions in horses, including sporadic tying-up, reduced fertility, and muscle loss and weakness. While Vitamin E is abundant is fresh pasture, it is not as available in hay. Additionally, many soils are deficient in Selenium, making it difficult to reach the recommended daily requirement of these two nutrients without additional supplementation. Horses in training or those prone to recurrent myopathy may benefit from higher supplies of Vitamin E and Selenium.
Paradox utilizes sources of Vitamin E and Selenium that have been proven to be superior. A recent study showed natural sources of Vitamin E are more effective in raising and maintaining serum Vitamin E levels, while horses receiving synthetic Vitamin E potentially incurred more soreness after exercise.
