In many equine diets the Omega-3: Omega-6 ratio is out of balance, affecting the wellbeing and performance of the horse. Omega-3 oils are a group of unsaturated fatty acids that cannot be produced by the horse. To benefit from these oils they need to be supplemented in the diet.
For the Omega-3 oil to be utilized effectively and efficiently it should contain the valuable longer chain fatty acids, Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These Omega-3 fatty acids are only found in fish oil. PERFORMA 3® Oil contains fish oil, allowing the horse to derive the full benefits of the oil immediately.
Plant sources of Omega-3 oils contain Linolenic acid that needs to be converted to EPA and DHA before it can be utilized by the horse.
HYGAIN® PERFORMA 3® is a rich, natural source of Omega-3, -6 & -9 fatty acids. By combining Omega-3 rich vegetable and fish oils with added garlic, PERFORMA 3® contains high levels of usable EPA and DHA's.
