KM Elite Linseed Oil (Flaxseed) 1ltr

Feeding Linseed (Flaxseed) oil has many potential benefits:

  • Good for skin allergies (Sweet Itch)
  • Improves skin and coat condition
  • Important aid to a healthy digestive system
  • Supports mobility and flexibility
  • Supports the immune system
  • 'Cold Pressed' to retain all the goodness

It contains essential Omega oils -�3,�6 and�9 which are also effective in humans - whereas other�vegetable�oils consist of mainly Omega 6 fatty oils. �Omega 3 offsets too much Omega 6 which can lead to an imbalance of oils. �The Omega 3 in our Linseed (Flaxseed) Oil is made up of a plant based fatty acid which naturally compliments any horses' diet.�

Flaxseed oil contains an essential fatty acid known as alpha-linoleic acid, or ALA. This fatty acid belongs to the Omega 3 group of lipids. Flaxseed oil is unusual among oils as it contains considerably more Omega 3 than Omega 6, therefore is fantastic in helping to address the imbalance of the ratios of Omega 6 to Omega 3, which in the modern horses diet is a common problem.

Flaxseed oil is obtained from the gentle cold pressing of dried ripe seeds of the flax plant. Of all the vegetable oils, Flaxseed oil (or Linseed Oil) has the highest levels of Omega 3 fatty acids. The Omega 3 fatty acid in Flaxseed oil (ALA), has been shown in research to help to tackle stiffness, the circulatory system and aid the ability to fend off immune disorders, making it ideal as a nutritional supplement. The equine diet has changed over the years as much as the human diet has and Omega 3 and 6 are not always as balanced as they should be. Any imbalance can affect the general wellbeing of your horse.

The Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) contained in Flaxseed oil ensures basic cellular health, and is as important to the health of our horses as vitamins and minerals. EFAs help cells form and function correctly and they are responsible for helping the body perform biological functions.

Another benefit of Flaxseed oil is the effect it has on the coat. If your horse suffers from a dry or very dull coat, fatty acids help to improve the texture of the coat, making for a fuller, shinier appearance. While it may seem superficial, a dull coat can often be a sign of other health problems.

Flaxseed oil will not only improve your horse's coat and produce a gorgeous shine, but it can also help with skin problems - Flaxseed oil has even been shown to help with sweet itch.

Flaxseed oil can help to reduce the build-up of lactic acid in muscles, which is a common cause of fatigue in performance horses.

Research has indicated that supplementing a horse daily with Flaxseed oil will, over time, have a beneficial effect on horses with stiff joints.
