POWERFUL NATURAL OMEGA 3 BOOST
In this podcast, Peter and Bryan discuss the details of the very popular CEN Oil and the benefits of Omega 3 for horses.
Omega 3 is essential for overall health particularly beneficial for brain, nerve and muscle function, the immune system, coat/skin, joints and hooves. It cannot be made by the horse, they require it in their diet from fresh pasture or by adding to feed.
From pleasure to performance horses, CEN Oil is used successfully by horse owners all around Australia. Containing 60% Omega 3, CEN Oil provides a high-quality source of plant-based Omega 3 with a similar Omega profile to fresh pasture.
WHY USE CEN OIL?
CEN Oil is the best oil choice for horses due to the high Omega 3 levels. Most oils contain Omega 6 and 9 but low Omega 3 (coconut oil contains no Omega 3 and is mainly saturated fat).
There are many oils available on the market with an unnatural Omega profile, having higher levels of Omega 6 to Omega 3 (which is opposite to what is found in natural fresh pasture. (1)(2)). This includes following oils:
Dr. Juliet Getty – highly regarded and internationally respected, independent equine nutritionist writes:
“Omega 3s block the formation of inflammatory molecules that are readily formed from Omega 6’s. Take a close look at the fat sources you are feeding to confirm that enough Omega 3’s are in the diet.”
No, it is not heating due to the nutrient profile containing no starch and sugar.
CEN Oil is a trusted high-quality source of Omega 3 for horses and will help reduce irritation due to the anti-inflammatory properties. To understand the cause of QLD Itch please see our article –
