NATURAL STABILISED PLANT BASED OIL WITH ANTIOXIDANTS

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.

CEN OIL OMEGA 3 BENEFITS

CEN OIL CONTAINS THE HIGHEST OMEGA 3 ON THE MARKET!

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?

SKIN & COAT

Horses cannot make their own Omega 3 and must source it in their diet. It improves skin/coat health and shine. The anti-inflammatory properties promote less irritation in skin conditions such as QLD itch (Sweet itch)

ENERGY

CEN Oil is a cool source (non-heating) of calories ideal for all horses in work or needing to maintain condition in work.

IMMUNE SYSTEM

Omega 3 contributes to the homeostasis of inflammatory responses (anti-inflammatory) and supports the activity of the immune system which regulates the non-specific inflammatory reactions.

JOINT HEALTH

The anti-inflammatory properties of Omega 3 help joint health especially seen in arthritic horses where chronic inflammation is evident.

FOCUS

Containing no sugar or starch, CEN Oil provides does not trigger "hot" behaviour due to the way it is metabolised.

STOMACH

CEN Oil is highly suitable for ulcer prone horses, due to its nutrient profile and anti-inflammatory properties.

HOOF INTEGRITY

Omega 3 is important for the hoof wall microtubules and laminae so they are built with suppleness and strength. The slick-looking surfaces is brought from a network of fats and waxes. The function can be described as the "glue" holding the hoof together. They keep the environmental moisture out but the critical tissue moisture in.

WHY IS CEN OIL MORE EFFECTIVE THAN OTHER OILS FOR HORSES?

Omega 3 Oil Comparison

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:

  • Rice Bran Oil (RBO)
  • Corn
  • Canola
  • Olive
  • Soybean
  • Cottonseed
  • Sunflower Oil

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.”
