Supplements for Horses

Supplements for horses such as PureFlax Flax Seed Oil have been used for centuries by horse owners, who have fed flaxseed (linseed) oil for a glossier, easier to groom coat, stronger hooves, improved condition, fitness and performance.

Its effectiveness is due to the fact the Omega-3 Flax seed Oil balances fats in the horses diet so that other nutrients and supplements are metabolized more effectively.

The Perfect Balance

You will already be aware of how your horse’s diet has changed over the years, meaning the Omega-3 and Omega-6 needed, is not always present and as balanced as it should be.

Any difference can affect your horses’ temperament, so by adding PureFlax as a supplement in their diet all year round helps ensure this perfect balance.

Diet Essentials

The fact is that your horse needs a minimum level of key fats to maintain good health. These are the Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) – so named because the horse can’t manufacture them in its body, making them “essential” in the diet.

Normally, a horse’s body contains more Omega-6 than Omega-3 EFAs, and therefore the emphasis turns to increasing the level of Omega-3s in the horse’s diet while maintaining a good supply of the Omega-6s.

One of the most natural ways of doing this is to add cold pressed flaxseed oil to their feed.

Did you also know that Omega-3s are needed by every cell in the body?  Among other things, it’s an ample supply that helps ensure that cell membranes stay flexible so that cells can get nutrients easily.

Your horse can use ALA to make all the other Omega-3 fatty acids that it needs, including both EPA and DHA.

Another advantage of getting Omega-3’s from the ALA in flax oil is that your horse does not create more EPA and DHA than it needs. Therefore, ingesting too much EPA/DHA is not an issue.

PureFlaxNutritionists have proven these Omega food supplements, like flaxseed oil, are ideal for horses and ponies of every breed at any stage of life, but especially hard working, stressed horses or those with digestive disorders.

Benefits of Flax Oil for Broodmares

During pregnancy the mare’s body becomes deficient in Omega-3 because of the fast-growing brain, eye, and sensory organs of the foal utilise all available Omega-3.

It is recommended that the diet of pregnant mares be supplemented with Omega-3 fatty acids, allowing for the transfer of these beneficial fatty acids to the foal in utero.

Previous research has demonstrated that Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet of mares will result in the mare cycling sooner and more consistently.
