Your horse’s diet changes over the years, which can mean the Omega-3 & Omega-6 (which horses can’t make in their own bodies) needed by your horse is not always present and as balanced as it should be. Any imbalance in these Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) can affect a horses temperament, so adding PureFlax as a supplement in their diet all year round helps ensure this perfect balance of Omega-3 & Omega-6. KM Elite Flaxseed Oil (Linseed Oil) contains essential Omega oils - 3, 6 and 9 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 KM Elite 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. 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 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 also 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.

Researches at Guelph University in Canada have shown that supplementing diets with flaxseed, a source of Omega- 3 fatty acids, reduced horses skin reactions to the bites of Culicoides midges. Some of these tiny incects are known to spread arboviruses to animals and humans. In horses, the bites cause intensly itching lesions known as sweet itch. The lesions often occur on the midline of the belly but can also be found on a horse's back and in the mane and tail areas. Treatment with steroids can help reduce itching, but dietary treatment may also offer relief.

*KM Elite Flaxseed Oil is also suitable for Poultry.
