How can Welactin Equine help my horse?
The benefits of Welactin Equine go beyond just skin and coat. Long chain Omega-3 fatty acids support many systems in the body including immune, respiratory, and cardiovascular, as well as supporting healthy joint function. Specific benefits have been noted to the reproductive health and fitness of breeding stallions and gestating/lactating mares. Research has shown that supplementation of horses in training may support the metabolism of energy, as well as maintain healthy blood flow and transport of oxygen during exercise.
Fish Oil vs Plant-Based Products
Fatty acids derived from plant-based sources such as soy, corn, flax, and rice bran contain Omega-6 and/or short chain Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-6 fatty acids are considered to be pro-inflammatory. The short chain Omega-3 fatty acids provided in plant-based products can be converted in the body to the more beneficial long chain Omega-3 fatty acids, but the conversion process is inefficient in horses. Therefore, it is more beneficial to directly provide long chain Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet via Welactin Equine. If your veterinarian recommends an Omega-3 fatty acid supplement for your horse, ask for Welactin Equine!
