The benefits of Omega fatty acids for equines are many and varied. Essential Omegas 3 and 6 work together for the benefit of your horse’s health and well-being.

Omega 3, otherwise known as ALA (Alpha Linolenic Acid), and Omega 6, or LA (Linolenic Acid), are essential fatty acids, meaning that the body cannot produce them independently. The only way to introduce these into the body, therefore, is through diet. A well-known supplement for humans and smaller pets as well, Wild Gold Omega 3 have been shown in some studies to provide horses such benefits as: joint health support, including improved mobility; improved skin and coat condition and shine; a reduction of exercise-induced bronchial constriction and EIPH; increased stamina for horses under heavy work.

Omega 6 fatty acids, which also support healthy skin and coat and promotes hair growth, has been shown to assist in regulating the metabolism as well.

But most importantly, an equine diet supplemented with the proper balance of Wild Gold Omega 3 and Wild Gold Omega 6 provides aid to several of your horse’s systems. Playing important roles in immune system regulation, cell membrane stability, oxygen transfer, and central nervous system development and maintenance, Omegas 3 and 6 also balance anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory mediators (respectively) to aid in fighting infection and repairing tissue.
