Equi-Omega Complex is a comprehensive fatty acid supplement in a convenient, palatable powder that combines Cocosoya, stabilized Flax Seed and stabilized Rice Bran to provide support for healthy skin, glossy coat and strong hooves.
Due to the high levels of Omega-6 content in CocoSoya and Rice Bran, Flax Seed is added to provide a source high in Omega-3s to balance out the Omega-6 fatty acids.
Flax seed is also a rich source of easily fermentable soluble fiber to provide cool, safe calories with healthy blood sugar levels. It also acts as a prebiotic to support healthy digestive function.
The benefits of the Omegas
Fatty acids are required for the absorption of fat soluble vitamins and phytonutrients, including Vitamins A, D, E, K and the Carotenes. They are also critical for the production of signaling molecules and healthy cell membranes. Signaling molecules are chemicals that direct specific activities from cells; for example, the signaling molecule Thromboxane is produced from Omega-6 and supports healthy inflammation response for clotting and vessel constriction in areas of damaged tissue. Equi-Omega Complex is particularly rich in Omega-6 fatty acids, which support immune defenses in the skin.
In contrast, Omega-3s support natural inflammatory responses. Fats in skin, hair and hooves form a barrier layer that seals cellular moisture in and prevents drying. Fatty Acids incorporated into cellular membranes make them more flexible and reactive with the environment around them.
Helps with feed palatability
Equi-Omega Complex is highly palatable, making it an excellent source of calories for picky eaters, and a taste tempter for horses that refuse added supplements. The high fat and fiber levels in Flax Seed and Rice Bran provide cool calories that support healthy blood sugar levels. The high levels of medium chain fats from CocoSoya are unique to fat supplements for horses and makes utilization of fats for energy metabolically efficient.
Maximizing hoof health internally and externally
Healthy fats benefit hoof health by forming a protective seal and minimizing outer moisture absorption. Losing internal moisture can lead to drying and cracking. Healthy fats can help maintain internal moisture for optimal hoof health.
