COMPOSITION : Thiamine disulphide nitrate (Vitamin B1) 20mg/ml, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) 5mg/ml, Nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) 60mg/ml, Pantothenate (Vitamin B5) 20mg/ml, Pyridoxine hydrochloride (Vitamin B6) 20mg/ml, Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) 200mcg/ml.
Actions: VITAMIN B COMPLEX provides the water soluble vitamins which are essential to carbohydrate and fat metabolism and also for protein synthesis.
*Thiamine (Vitamin B1) helps maintain normal energy metabolism and is critical to maintenance of normal muscle and nerve function. High doses of Vitamin B1 helps reduce nervousness.
*Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) helps cells produce energy. It is also required for growth and for the health of skin and mucous membranes as well as for vision.
*Nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) is vital for red blood cell formation and is also required for normal metabolism in all cells. Vitamin B3 is important in maintaining healthy skin and coat.
*Pantothenate (Vitamin B5) plays a key role in energy metabolism and is necessary in enzymes which make and carry glucose and fatty acids for energy supply. Vitamin B5 is also involved in the manufacturing of adrenal hormones and brain neurotransmitters. Vitamin B5 is necessary for healthy skin and hair coat and has a role in reproduction.
*Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) is an essential part of protein and amino acid metabolism and in the formation of new proteins including hemoglobin. It is critical to nerve function and vision, maintains skin integrity, and is also involved in red blood cell formation.
*Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) forms part of the coenzymes essential for all cells, particularly rapid turnover cells such as red blood cells, intestinal and muscle cells.
The B COMPLEX VITAMINS are intimately involved with red blood cell formation. They are all closely dependant on each other, therefore the absence of one will critically effect the activity of all others. As water soluble vitamins, B COMPLEX VITAMINS need to be taken in on a daily basis and they are equally rapidly excreted, so B COMPLEX VITAMINS must be supplemented on a regular basis. The need for all B COMPLEX VITAMINS is significantly increased in all performance and working horses under stress. Animals under stress may frequently have poor appetites, which may be stimulated by the B COMPLEX VITAMINS.
Additionally B COMPLEX VITAMINS are valuable in the recovery from parasitic burdens, surgery, injury and illness and also in old age.
Dosage and Administration: Administer 5-10ml by intramuscular injection twice weekly or as advised by a veterinary surgeon.
