Trial 2: Vitamin K levels in Serum (mg/ml) in 14 yearlings grazing fresh green pasture
May 9, 2017
Fourteen thoroughbred yearlings were provided with a supplement to normal pasture grazing. Four yearlings were supplemented with a blank paste as placebo. Five were supplemented with Vitamin K in oil and five were supplemented with water-the soluble Vitamin K composition (Quinaquanone®) Serum. Vitamin K was then determined. Then Carboxylation levels were determined on those provided with soluble Vitamin K and compared with those on placebo after 60 days.
It can be seen that administration of Vitamin K improved Vitamin K serum levels. Supplementation with a stabilised, water-soluble Vitamin K significantly changed serum levels in the horses, and significantly raised carboxylation in horses during this 60 day trial. This graph shows the range of each group.
