Oxidation is a process a horse’s body uses to transform nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy. But during this process, a few unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals develop. These molecules have an unpaired electron that makes them quick to react with other molecules, stealing electrons from their outer orbits.
