Thiamine, Energy Metabolism, Digestion & the Healthy Nervous System
Thiamine plays an important role in the body's metabolism of carbohydrates. The horse's body requires thiamine to produce erythrocyte transketolase, an essential enzyme for energy utilization. Thiamine has also been studied for its effect on the maintenance of healthy appetite and nervous system stability and poise. Thiamine is highly vulnerable to the heat generated in feed processing. Bracken fern, yellow star thistle, and horsetail contain substances that promote thiamine deficiency if eaten. Horses should be prevented from grazing these plants whenever possible.
Thiamine is especially important for horses with increased energy needs due to intense exercise demands. The digestive system is also maintained properly by Thiamine, and added thiamine has been shown to reduce diarrhea when other methods have failed.
