THIACIN injection provides the essencial vitamin Thiamine.THIACIN plays an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, and energy production for all cells.Thiamine is most important in the breakdown of pyruvic acid, a waste product in hard working muscles, along with lactic acid. In any situation where carbohydrates are the major energy source, or when glucoseis added to the diet, thiamine requirement is increased significantly. Thiamine is essential as part of the coenzyme which is involved in the breakdown of glucose for energy.Thiamine, in conjunction with Vitamin B6(Pyridoxine) is essential in the metabolism of proteins and aminoacids, Thiamine has effects on all tissues. The most sensitive are nerves, stomach and heart.Thiamine can not store in the body, and it is rapidly absorbed from the intestine or blood, as well as from injection sites. Like all B Complex vitamins, Thiamine is water soluble, so it is rapidly absorbed and excreted from the body, and requires regular supplementation, especially in hard working animals whendietary input will probably not be sufficient.Thiamine is found in both meat and cereal products. Small amounts are manufactured in the gut, as long as horses are not under stress.Thiamine in food is destroyed by cooking.High doses of thiamine are reported to help calm nervous or over excitable horses.Clinical signs of thiamine deficiency include fatigue, muscle weakness, loss of appetite and incresedheart rate. (This may be an important factor in endurance horses fed high grain diets). Many of thesesigns can be traced back to increased tissue levels oflactic and pyruvic acids. Never cells are particularly dependant on carbohydrate metabolism, and normal never function is greatly effected by increased levels ofthese acids during hard work.
