Vitamin B1 (Thiamin B1)
Thiamine B1 is needed for the efficient metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It is also critical for the processing of lactic and pyruvic acids, which contribute to "tying up" and is especially important in competition horses that are often fed large amounts of grain to support athletic ability.
The requirements for Thiamine in a 500 kg horse ranges from 30-62 mg daily. It is an essential B vitamin for carbohydrate metabolism used in growth, appetite and for energy metabolism (ATP) in cells that power exercise. It reduces muscle tremors and aids in calming.
