Mad Barn’s B-Vitamin Pak is a comprehensive, powdered formula that delivers a balanced profile of all the B-vitamins that your horse needs.

We dare you to compare B-Vitamin Pak – you will not find a lower priced/higher quality B-vitamin equine supplement on the market!

Together, these essential nutrients are chiefly involved in the metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates, proper functioning of the liver and blood production. Supplementing with B-Vitamin Pak can support your horse’s well-being, mood, energy levels, coat quality and more.

WHY SUPPLEMENT B-VITAMINS IN YOUR HORSE?

The horse is able to synthesize the majority of B-vitamins in the hind gut, thanks to its bacterial population. These vitamins are also very efficiently recycled within the body and not typically needed in large quantities in the diet.

For this reason, it is common for equine nutritionists to indicate that horses do not need supplemental B-vitamins to prevent deficiency.

However, studies consistently show that supplementing 20 mg/day of biotin will improve hoof growth and structure. This is why all Mad Barn mineral and vitamin products provide 20 mg of biotin/day.

This indicates that endogenous production levels of B Vitamins is not sufficient for optimal health with current feeding and management practices.

Similarly, if you supplement thiamine and note an improvement in your horse’s mood and behaviour, then clearly B-vitamin levels were insufficient prior to supplementation.

Unlock the full potential of your horse by supplying optimal levels of B-Complex vitamins with B-Vitamin Pak, rather than aiming for the minimum.

When to Use B-Vitamin Pak

Supplementing B-vitamins with Mad Barn’s B-Vitamin Pak can especially assist horses:

  • Undergoing intense training or competition
    • Lower than ideal B-complex levels may negatively impact horses that spend a lot of time off pasture, adhere to strict schedules or other management practices that are seen in horses that are engaged in high levels of training and competition. Supplementing B-vitamins can restore optimal levels.
  • Under stress due to transportation
    • Disruptions in your horse’s feeding schedule, changes in the environment and changes in diet can all contribute to increased stress, which can compromise gut health and weaken the immune system.
  • With a reduced digestive capacity
    • Very young horses may have a low bacterial population in their hind gut, meaning they are not able to produce adequate levels of these vitamins internally.
    • Very old horses often have a lower feed intake and digestive capacity due to age-related conditions, which could lead to lower levels of B-vitamins in the body.
  • Affected by an illness
    • Poor appetite can accompany illness; replenish B-vitamins that can’t be obtained from normal feedstuffs.
    • Medications such as NSAIDs or antibiotics may compromise hind gut bacteria.
  • Fed high-grain diets
    • High grain diets tend to cause dysbiosis in the hind gut and a subsequent reduction in B-vitamin production.
  • With limited access to green grass or quality hay
    • Fresh grass is rich in many B-vitamins. Depending on the harvest, hays can also contain adequate levels. However, during times when fresh grass or quality pasture aren’t available, B-vitamin supplementation can be helpful.

You should always consult a qualified nutritionist before altering your feed program.
