Flax Seed Oil For Hens

Research has suggested that people will be healthier and have fewer heart problems if they increase their consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids, traditionally coming from fish and fish oil but many people eat only limited amounts of these foods. Eggs fortified with Omega-3 fatty acids offer an alternative method to increase the amount of these fatty acids in our diet.

You can increase the level of Omega-3 fatty acids in the eggs that your hens lay by including Flax Seed Oil in their feed. PureFlax Flax Seed Oil contains a type of omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) called a linolenic acid (ALA) and the hen will deposit a significant amount of this dietary fatty acid into the egg yolk and meat of the birds.

Research Shows…

…that the addition of polyunstaurated fatty acids (PUFAs) to the diet of laying hens is used to produce PUFA-enriched eggs, and has been investigated as a means of improving bird health and welfare. The n-6 PUFAs including the ALA found in Flax Seed oil are the major sources of PUFAs in the diet.

In the research this significantly decreases Campylobacter numbers in the caecum and liver of infected birds, believed to be due to an increase of Omega 3 and its health benefits and an increase in intestinal barrier function.

Did You Know?


Flax oil fed to laying hens can increase the omega-3 content of the eggs with no negative effects on performance

Grobas et al. (2001) found that ALA increased from 6.3% to 40.2 and 48.3% of the total fat when laying hens were provided 0, 5 and 10% flax oil, respectively.

Why Use PureFlax Over Other Oils?

Other oils available such as Vegetable Oil may be cheaper, but many are heat-treated or have chemicals added (either in the growing or in production) therefore they will not deliver the same benefits as PureFlax

As a vegetable based oil, cold pressed PureFlax Flax Seed Oil is a slow-release energy source which is a good source of Omega-6 Flax Seed Oil and one of the few vegetable sources that contains Omega-3
