At EquaCare, we prioritise top-quality products for your athletic companions. The inclusion of essential nutrients, such as omega fatty acids, in equine diets is vital for good health. These nutrients support optimal energy production, reduce inflammation, enhance joint and bone health, improve cardiovascular function, and strengthen the immune system.
With EquaCare's Custom Mix Omega Blend Oil, racehorses benefit from these crucial omega fatty acids for enhanced athletic performance, speed, endurance, and longevity.
Horses that are stabled and fed a higher grain diet (not pasture/grass based) receive a higher level of Omega 6 in their diet. Too much Omega 6 in a horse’s diet interferes with the body’s use of Omega 3 fatty acids. This imbalance can lead to excess inflammation and problems like arthritis. To help modify the inflammatory reaction of a horse’s body, the Omega 3 to 6 ratio needs to be kept in balance.
EquaCare Omega Blend Oil contains linseed (flax) oil, which is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. Unlike canola oil, commonly found in many off-the-shelf omega supplements, linseed oil offers the highest percentage of Omega 3 and alpha-linolenic acid. By choosing our Omega Blend Oil, you ensure that your horse receives a superior and more effective supplement. Additionally, the use of linseed oil reduces the burden on your horse's system to eliminate excess Omega 6.
Just when you thought we’d ticked all the boxes, our Omega Blend Oil also contains fish oil with exclusive availability of EPA and DHA long chain fatty acids which are essential for cardiovascular function and inflammatory responses.
(If you’re keen for all the scientific terms, EPA stands for Eicosapentaenoic Acid, while DHA is short for Docosahexaenoic Acid).
Our Omega Blend Oil, with a dose rate of 50-100ml per day, delivers the ideal ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids. This supports immune health, promotes a healthy appetite, and helps maintain a balanced inflammatory response in horses. These essential steps ensure your athlete stays in optimal condition.
Every horse is unique, and factors like breed, genetics, and individual health conditions can affect their overall wellbeing. If you have any concerns or queries about your horse, it's always best to consult with a veterinarian who can provide tailored advice and guidance.
