Omega Complete is a rich source of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA in a palatable powder form. This product can be fed to all classes of horses, including foals, breeding stock, and performance horses to improve the critical ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 in the diet. It helps provide preferential precursors for production of hormones, and regulate gene expression to positively affect insulin sensitivity.
Long Chain Omega 3 Fatty Acids in Animal Nutrition
There are two families of essential fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids and Omega-6 fatty acids. They are termed “essential” because they cannot be produced by the body, and must therefore, be obtained from the diet. By supplementing with a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids such as fish oil and flaxseed, will provide a good ratio of these essential fatty acids. As long as the diet is not too high in sources of omega-6 fats such as cereals, whole grains etc, as too much Omega 6 in the diet produces an inflammatory action, whereas Omega 3 is anti-inflammatory.
Omega-3 EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) are needed to keep nerve cells and brain cells functioning properly. When there is a deficiency of omega-3 EFAs and an excess of saturated fats in the diet, the membranes of these cells are less fluid. Fluidity is an important feature of any cell. It allows nutrients to move easily into the cell, and waste products to get out.
Without the proper ratio of Omega-3 EFAs in the diet, cell membranes tend to “stiffen”: they become less fluid and the cell’s internal environment suffers. Flaxseed contains Biotin which is a B vitamin that is sometimes referred to as vitamin H or vitamin B7. It is one of the eight vitamins in the vitamin B-complex. The B vitamins, in general, help in promoting healthy nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver and a healthy mouth. Biotin is important in metabolism and energy production. Many studies have shown improvement in chronic conditions such as arthritis, obesity, cardiovascular disease, with omega-3 EFA supplementation.
