Fourflax Equine Flax Seed Products for Horses

However, very few horse feeds contain sufficient amounts of Omega 3, and it is this lack of Omega 3 and too much Omega 6 that is often cited as the cause for several inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and skin problems. Flax Seed Oil will provide fantastic results in terms of soft, shiny coats and the energy provided, but the key advantage of using Flax Seed Oil over other readily available oils is the Omega 3 content.


Why use Fourflax Equine Flax Seed Oil for Horses

Now with the availability of Equine Flax Seed Oil and the high concentration of Omega 3 that is present in this product, horse owners can easily administer this health-giving supplement to their animals, without the need for getting messy and trying to boil linseed.
