The unique blend of oils known as Equine Omega Complete
provides unsurpassed natural benefits for the complete total wellness of horses.
Feeding A Complete Grain?
Most commercial grains with added fat are higher in pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids and much lower in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Take a look at a typical guaranteed analysis. If the omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acid percentages are listed, chances are the omega-6 content is much higher than the omega-3 content. While both these fatty acid types are essential and necessary in the diet, oversupplying omega-6's can cause more harm than good.
Equine Omega Complete is a specific formula designed to provide a balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, essentially helping to regulate inflammation within the body. A precise blend of all-natural, GMO-free, mechanically expelled soybean oil with added human grade, deep water, wild caught fish oil, Equine Omega Complete delivers many additional benefits to the horse.
Equine Omega Complete supplies healthy fat, which is essential for normal cell function. Cells that function properly help promote a healthy horse from the inside out. Therefore, for the best results, we suggest you pair our product with a low-fat, complete grain.
Not all fat is created equal. Trust the quality and source of the fat in your horse's diet. Supplement with Equine Omega Complete. Email us for a list of grains we like a lot. email@example.com
Who Would ever Believe that Feeding a
Horse Fat could be the Healthiest Thing you Could do for it?
What are these fats where do they come from and how can they benefit my horse?
Essential omega-3 fatty acids (EFA) are polyunsaturated fats needed for various metabolic processes in horses and humans. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in highest concentrations in fish oil and in soybean oil. Flax and linseed oils contain substantial amounts of omega-3 fatty acids but do not contain the enzymes that allow for maximum uptake. Fresh green mature grass contains fat, even though it is low in content it is mostly made up of omega-3 fatty acids. There has been a considerable amount of research conducted on horses that show that omega-3 supplementation affects the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 in blood and tissue with alterations in the fatty acid composition of cell membranes. This effect is most evident when fish oil is supplemented in the horses that have experienced an inflammatory insult.
Let’s Look at the Benefits of Feeding EOC through a Horse’s Life Cycle Starting with the Stallion
Supplementing the diet of breeding stallions with Equine Omega Complete (EOC) for 90 days prior to and during breeding season has proven to increase sperm production by nearly 50% in stallions considered to have a normal level of fertility. More sperm equates to more breedings that equates to more money! Research conducted by Equine Omega Complete in conjunction with several breeding farms and major universities demonstrates the unsurpassed benefits of feeding EOC to older stallions. Studies show that long-term (11 Months) supplementation of the diets of these sub-fertile stallions with the omega-3 rich EOC can dramatically increase semen quality and quantity. The more dramatic improvements were found in the motion characteristics of cooled-stored and frozen-thawed semen of the sub-fertile stallions, a near 40% increase of progressive motility was noted as well as an increase of sperm output and morphologically normal sperm membranes.
While taking this new information in to consideration, with a simple change of diet we can now extend a stallion’s ability to pass on desirable bloodlines paste improving their over-all wellness at the same time. We don’t want to forget about our brood mares.
Supplementing pregnant and lactating mares with EOC provide benefits to both the mare and foal. Researchers have discovered that the placenta may be responsible for transferring DHA and EPA to the fetal nervous system, therefore supplementing the mare during pregnancy can assist with foal development inutero. Mares that consume diets high in omega-3 fatty acids produce richer colostrums which assists in the passive transfer of cloistral anti-bodies that help jump start the foal while boosting its immune system. At the end of the day, mares that are supplemented with EOC drop healthier foals.
Now Youth Enter the Picture
Typically foals are turned to the pasture after being weaned; here fresh green mature grass is as good as any omega-3 supplement. However when fall or drought reduces the availability of fresh grass. Cereal grains and dry hay do not contain sufficient amounts of omega-3 essential fatty acids to benefit the health of our horses. Now we have to supplement. Finding the correct supplement with the proper balance, up until now has been a challenge to say the least. Years of patient research and observation by veterinarians, owners, nutritionists, farriers and trainers have resulted in the development of what Equine Omega Complete believes is the optimum Omega-3 omega-6 equine dietary supplement. EOC is a blend of expeller pressed soybean oil that has had certain undesirable elements physically removed without compromising the integrity of the oil as is in chemically extracted oils, and a very high grade of marine (fish) oil plus other natural ingredients.
