Dr. Frank Reilly, dmv,  has worked on Standardbreds in harness racing for over 25 years. He has worked at Pompano Park, Brandywine Raceway, and various training centers.  He graduated with three degrees from the University of Illinois.

For the past twenty years he has been the Senior Doctor for Equine Medicine and Surgery in West Chester, Pennsylvania. During his tenure Dr. Reilly has worked with and helped numerous world champion performers, including the world champion trotter, Enough Talk, who in 2008 became the first trotter in harness racing history to break the 1:50 barrier at a mile.

Over the year Dr. Reilly has seen problems with muscle soreness and tying up that are common problems in Standardbreds and that it can be helped with a high dose of Vitamin E.  In addition, he knew that high dose Vitamin E is shown to increase the immunity to dramatically cut down on respiratory infections which are the #1 cause of decreased performance and a big economic drain to owners.

Thus came the development of Health-E, as the strongest Vitamin E supplement in the USA.

“Horses do not make Vitamin E in their bodies, so they need daily supplementation,”  said Dr. Reilly.  “At 16,000+ IU/oz., only 1 tablespoon of Health-E provides 5800 IU/day for maximum health. You can go to our website at and directly compare Health-E to other Vitamin E products.  We are four times stronger and the best economic choice.

“We are the only one tested to show it raises Vitamin E blood levels in horses,” Dr. Reilly explained.  “We have the world record for the highest Vitamin E blood level ever recorded at New Bolton Center’s Veterinary Lab.

“Health-E has no fillers, artificial preservatives, colors or flavors, Dr. Reilly said. It is the only Vitamin E certified safe for IR, Cushings and PSSM/EPSM horses due to low sugar, starch and fructans. Horses even love the taste. It is great for horses on dirt lots, that are not turned out or have little grass pasture.  It helps neurological horses (epm, edm, motor neuron), muscle sore, tie ups, PSSM/EPSM, liver problems, eye disorders, skin damage and it contains no selenium.”

On top of it all, Dr. Reilly oversees the production of every container of Health-E.

The cost is $65.95 per 1.32 pound container. This product is also available in Canada directly from Gourmet Animal, Inc., Website:,
