Notify Me When Available

Vitamin C is an important antioxidant for dogs – assisting immune system function, helping to neutralize free radicals in their bodies, protecting cells from damage, reducing inflammation and cognitive ageing. Although dogs, unlike humans, can make their own Vitamin C in their liver, they produce lower amounts in times of stress or sickness. So supplementation can be beneficial.

Vitamin C is an vital organic compound within a horse’s body, aiding in collagen production, iron absorption, hormone synthesis, bone calcification, regulation of antihistamine and supporting their immune system. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, helping to protect cells from damage.

Unlike humans, horses can synthesize their own Vitamin C from glucose in their livers – however deficiency can arise during period of stress or illness. A lack of Vitamin C can lead to several health problems in horses, including poor wound healing, reduced immunity, and joint pain.

Sodium ascorbate is a form of Vitamin C that is more easily absorbed by the body than Ascorbic Acid, making it an ideal choice for dogs & horses. In addition, it is non-toxic and safe for dogs of all sizes.


  • Post-operative and post-trauma dogs & horses
  • Dogs & horses suffering from wounds, infections or diseases, emotional stress or anxiety
  • Competition dogs & horses e.g endurance, sled dogs, eventers, race horses
  • Inflammatory conditions
  • Dogs & horses with heaves or allergies
  • Older dogs & horses with chronic infections or decreased immunity

Why Sodium Ascorbate?
CEN Vitamin C uses Sodium Ascorbate, a highly effective, more easily absorbed form of Vitamin C.
 It is pH neutral (pH 7.4) as opposed to acidic Ascorbic Acid (pH 3.0). Therefore Sodium Ascorbate does not irritate the intestinal tract or kidneys.
The body easily absorbs sodium ascorbate, and studies have also shown that it stays in the system twice as long as the acid form. Sodium ascorbate is the only form of vitamin C approved by the FDA for intravenous injection in humans.

Vitamin C is a natural immune system booster. When absorbed into the body, it helps increase the number of antibodies responsible for fighting toxins, bacteria and viruses.
Vitamin C helps relieve allergy symptoms because it acts as an antihistamine, a compound that counteracts histamine and fights inflammation.
Vitamin C helps the production of collagen, a vital tissue that promotes joint and bone health.
Vitamin C boosts dogs' & horses' levels of interferon, a natural antibody that helps fight viral infections and cancerous growths.
Supplementing Vitamin C has been linked to helping the absorption rate of other nutrients in the diet (or supplement).
Vitamin C is a vital antioxidant for dogs & horses. They need it to maintain a healthy, lustrous coat. Vitamin C usually combines with Vitamin E to maintain their appearance.

CEN supplements are amazing. Iv always used CEN oil . My pup was scratching and biting at herself when I got her and had red rashes from the grass. After starting CEN Vitamin C to her diet with the oil she is no long itching and no redness after being on the grass. I’m so happy and highly recommend CEN products.
