Elevate Maintenance Powder by Kentucky Performance Products is a supplemental source of natural vitamin E for horses. It is ideal when a gradual increase in circulating levels of vitamin E is required or when the vitamin E level needs to be maintained over a long period.
Elevate is appropriate for horses of all ages and breeds. In particular, supplementation of Vitamin E is essential for horses that do not have regular access to pasture since the vitamin E content of dried forages such as hay and hay cubes is diminished by about 75% upon harvesting and storage. Vitamin E supplementation is most critical for horses that are confined to stalls such as racehorses, show horses, sale horses, and convalescing horses.
Performance Horses require optimal levels of vitamin E to support proper muscle function. Equine athletes that do not possess adequate stores of vitamin E may experience muscle soreness or stiffness during an exercise bout and prolonged recovery following strenuous work. In addition, studies show that broodmares supplemented with vitamin E have shown increased passive transfer of antibodies to foals, which ensures strength of the neonatal immune system. There is also increasing evidence that vitamin E supplementation may boost fertility in mares.
One scoop (7 grams) per day delivers 1000 IU of natural Vitamin E. The 2 lb jar of Elevate provides up to a 130 day supply for one horse.
I use this for my older Grand Prix horse and my young horse with outstanding results for both. They are more supple and relaxed quicker and recover nicely. Highly recommend it

He likes it, and it works
I started using Elevate about 4 years ago when my Thoroughbred started tying up. My vet recommended it, and since I started using it he has never tied up again. Thats quite a relief, since we had two scary episodes over a period of about a year, and I had no desire for a repeat performance!

Both my horses have been on this for several months and I have seen a great improvement in both. My older horse is 20 and still competes at Grand Prix Dressage, he is more relaxed and focused. My other horse is a 9 yr old mare and she is more relaxed and happier. I would highly recommend this product.

My horse was muscle wasting due to a vitamin E deficiency. I tried several types of vitamin E supplements, mostly human pills, with no real success until I tried this stuff. He gained all the lost muscle back within a few months of trying this stuff, and is now on a maintenance level. Highly recommend this product if you are having similar issues.
My vet suggested I put my mare on Elevate Maintenance. Big D has s great price on this and fast shipping!!

Great Vitamin E Product
I have been giving Elevate to my Percheron for years. Vitamin E helps with the condition shivers that drafts are more prone too. The fact that this is a natural Vitamin E vs the other synthetics means it is more utilized by the horse. I will never use a different product!

Product performs as expected
I started using Elevate a few years ago when my horse tied up twice during exercise. I bought it based on my vets recommendation, have used it continuously ever since, and in the following years my horse has never experienced another episode of tying up. He consumes it readily when mixed with a little corn oil and some grain--and he is a picky one about taking his meds!
I always supplement my older horse with vitamin E in the winter, when he is not on pasture.

LOTS TO LIKE
First of all, I love that my Elevate Vitamin E comes to my door from Big Dee sooo quickly---usually within 2 days. Since my vet recommended that my 30 year old mare remain on Vit E for the rest of her life, I also like the reasonable pricing. The fact that I can simply top-dress her grain with the Elevate is a big plus as well. The horse eats it readily with no fussy preparations. Last, but certainly not least, my horse is still climbing the hills in her pasture and keeping up with the herd, all of whom are younger than she. Perhaps the Elevate Vitamin E has something to do with that...
elEvate ...E powder
First used this product on a 23 yr. old Quarter horse boarded at my barn. He had an assortment of problems , lived another 7 years. Talked to my small animal vet for quantity and have been giving it to my 11 year old Rottie for 5 years. He was paralyzed with a disc problem and came back 95% after about 3 months .

Vet recomended Elevate Vitamin E Powder for our gelding with EPM. He has been stable and shows no signs of getting worse.
- Becky Pitcock, OH
It was a great choice
Great for PSSM
I have a 6 yr old PSSM mare, and Elevate is definitely the best Vitamin E option for her condition! Plus it smells great, and apparently tastes good, too. :
- Jenny, PA
When the vet recommended I use this on my horse, i went straight to Big Dee and there it was!! Has helped with my horse that has a tendency to tie up

ELEVATE VITAMIN E POWDER - 2 LB
This is a great product. My horse has some health issues and my vet recommended it. Im very happy with how has utilized this product
- Jenny, MI
Elevate Vitamin E works!
My horse has a vitamin E deficiency. Without a supplement he is very uncoordinated and not safe to ride. I have tried other supplements but he avoids them and leaves them in the bottom of the bucket. Also it is hard to find a supplement that is just vitamin E without other stuff added. Best product for money!
Elevate vitamin powder
This has been a great product for me. I needed a concentrate of vitamin E since my horse has been on a medication for EPM. I now notice a very shiny coat
