The Structural Vitamin The horse's body needs vitamin C to grow, maintain, and repair structural tissues. Thefirst vitamin to be chemically isolated, vitamin C was originally noted for its ability to prevent scurvy, a disease marked by the breakdown of circulatory and connective tissue. More recent research has shown the need for vitamin C in producing specific proteins, such as collagen, and other structural elements of connective tissue. Because of this connection, many studies have focused on the impact of vitamin C on healing rates, bone modeling, blood vessel integrity, and tooth formation. For all classes of horses.
