Why do horses need omega-3 (EPA and DHA) in their diets?
- Omega-3 fatty acids are "good fats" needed for optimal health and performance. These and omega-6s cannot be produced by the body. Animals must get them from their diets.
- Botanical sources of omega-3 and -6 are difficult for horses and other animals to convert into EPA and DHA.
- Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to help support the inflammatory response, including chronic problems such as osteoarthritis and possibly laminitis.
Make sure your horse receives the Omega-3s it needs!
