CEN Oil is formulated with cold pressed linseed (flaxseed) oil with antioxidants.
CEN Oil contains the highest Omega 3 levels on the market!
Why Use CEN Oil?
- Healthy shine & coat quality (3)
- Energy Production: Non-heating ‘cool’ energy source, highly digestible & palatable
- High quality plant based source of Omega 3
- Immune system health & may help reduce inflammation (3) (4) (6)
- Assists in weight gain/maintaining condition
Why Is CEN Oil More Effective Than Other Oils For Horses?
CEN Oil is the best oil choice for horses due to the high Omega 3 levels. Most Oils contain Omega 6 and 9 but no Omega 3.
There are many oils available on the market with an unnatural Omega profile to that of fresh pasture, having higher levels of Omega 6 to Omega 3.
Most oils on the market all have higher Omega 6 to Omega 3 levels which is opposite to what is found in natural fresh pasture. (1)(2)
- Rice Bran Oil (RBO)
- Sunflower Oil
Coconut Oil contains no Omega 3 and is mainly saturated fat.
Omega 3 cannot be made by the horse, they require it in their diet from fresh pasture or by adding to feed.
Omega 3 is essential for overall health particularly beneficial for brain, nerve and muscle function, the immune system, coat/skin, joints and hooves.
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 6s.
Take a close look at the fat sources you are feeding to confirm that enough Omega 3s are in the diet.”
Containing 55% Omega 3, CEN Oil provides a high quality source of plant based Omega 3 with a similar Omega profile to fresh pasture.
All natural, no chemicals and formulated from high quality linseed (flaxseed) oil with antioxidants.
