Thiamine is important in carbohydrate metabolism and the healthy transmission of nerve impulses. It can be used alone or in combination with Magnesium or Calcium.
Thiamine B1 is of special significance in the equine nervous system because of its unique involvement in the processing of carbohydrates and glucose for aerobic energy generation. Glucose is the preferred fuel of the brain. Anything that increases metabolic rate, such as exercise, can increase the requirement. A high carbohydrate diet can also increase requirements. Horses with a history of digestive upset or diarrhea may have poor intestinal supplies.
Adequate levels of the vitamin Thiamine (B1) support the healthy metabolism of the brain’s major fuel, Glucose, which may help reduce hyperactivity and promote relaxation. The B vitamins are required for the metabolism of all types of cellular fuels – carbohydrates, protein and fats.
