£88.00 £88.00
Per bottle


  • Racehorses - to support optimum muscle function
  • Broodmares - to support fertility, poor milkers and poor quality colostrum
  • Stallions - to support libido and semen quality
  • Foals and youngstock - at stressful times or during periods of confinement
  • Horses recovering from illness or injury, or those stabled without access to fresh grazing


  • Potent natural source of Vitamin E with proven increased bioavailability
  • Rapidly available allowing timed administration to provide peak antioxidant protection
  • Low dose rate provides a high intake of natural Vitamin E and can easily be syringed orally, if needed
  • Retained in tissues for longer than synthetic sources, so good for strategic use

Studies by Kentucky Equine Research have shown that the form and source of Vitamin E can make a difference to horses. Nano-E is a potent and powerful natural Vitamin E source that benefits all horses with a rapid absorption rate and increased bioavailability. It is a water soluble liquid supplement that can be administered strategically.

Using Nano-E has many benefits. For broodmares, additional Vitamin E in the last 30 days of pregnancy improves both her Vitamin E status and that of her foal. Colostrum quality is also improved with higher antibody levels found when supplemented.

It can be given to a newborn or premature foal for use as a support to their immune system, and can help when travelling the foals with the mares for covering.

Broodmare fertility is also a consideration for additional Vitamin E, particularly for mares covered early in the season where pasture contribution of natural E will be low. This is particularly important for mares with reduced uterine defence mechanisms and may also be of benefit to mares with a history of placental dysfunction if given in the last 2-4 weeks of pregnancy.

Stallion fertility also benefits from specific supplementation of Vitamin E. Both libido and sperm quality have been linked with Vitamin E. Use of Nano-E during the covering season is recommended for all stallions, in particular those with fertility related concerns, such as low sperm motility. Higher circulating levels of Vitamin E may create an environment to support the survival of progressively motile sperm.

For racehorses, Nano-E is recommended for use during periods of increased training or stress, and a busy racing campaign. It can be used to preload the body prior to travelling and racing. Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant with well-documented benefits to muscle function and the reduction of damage to muscle tissue.

We recommend 12 - 20 ml (3000 to 5000 iu) pre-loading 6-12 hours prior to a race, during long distance travelling or leading up to a stressful event, and then for 3-4 days after for improved recovery rates.
