Fish oil

Fish oil is a highly digestible source of high-quality essential fatty acids and, unlike vegetable oils, naturally contains much higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.


Fish oil is very rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids that constitute the basis of their interesting properties. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are good fats and fish oil is a source providing them a naturally high level of them. Horses need to balance the omega-6 essential fatty acids that are abundant in grains and cereal by-products. Fatty acids make up cell membranes and are therefore involved in all processes in the body to some degree. The body needs both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as both have different but very important functions. Omega-3 fatty acids are able to suppress inflammation whereas omega-6 fatty acids have pro-inflammatory properties. To function correctly the two must be in correct balance. If the body has too few omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids are used to replace them, which can affect diverse body functions. A diet high in omega-6 fatty acids can lead to inappropriate inflammatory responses without the balancing effect of omega-3 fatty acids inflammation suppressing properties.
