KER: Niacin Supplementation for Broodmares

Kentucky Equine Research posted a new article in July addressing new research into niacin supplements for broodmares. Other research has shown a connection between niacin deficiency and fetal development in humans and mice. This new evidence looks specifically at whether niacin plays a role in broodmares keeping successful pregnancies.

"Because mares suffer from high rates of early embryonic loss, the objective of this preliminary study was to examine the absorption and metabolism of niacin in mares to determine its potential use to support early embryonic health and to improve pregnancy outcomes."
