A balanced blend of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
Ideal for supporting healthy skin and coat condition.
Fats are an essential food and play many useful roles in the body, ranging
from supplying energy to ensuring the integrity of cell membranes.
Fats in the form of oils arecommonly fed to horses.
During digestion they are broken down to release energy.
Fats consist of a chain of fatty acids linked to a glycerol molecule.
Fatty acids are important for a wide array of cell structure components and
for many chemical reactions in the body, including hormonal and energy
Fatty acids play a vital role in establishing a healthy lipid barrier in the skin,
the defence mechanism against assault from irritants and infection.
Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs) are Essential Fatty Acids; i.e can not
be made by the body and must be provided in the diet.
The three types, Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 oils must be present in
the diet in the correct balance for good health.
These fatty acids include Linolenic Acid, EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) and
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) which are well known for their role in the
support of a healthy immune system, skin and joints, reproductive system
The unique formulation of NAF Omega Oil, combining the benefits of soya,
linseed and hemp oil to provide the optimum blend of 3,6 and 9 fatty acids
makes it the natural choice for all horses whether for general health and
coat shine, or as a significant energy source.
NAF Omega Oil is an ideal energy source for performance, providing more
energy than the same weight of carbohydrates or protein.
The energy from oil isreleased slowly, making it ideal for prolonged
performance, and less likely to causebouts of excitability associated with
high cereal diets.
As with any dietary change, Omega Oil should be introduced gradually to
ensure that the metabolic pathways within the body can adapt to oil
NAF Omega Oil uses a blend of three natural oils to provide the correct
balance of PUFAs.
It is suitable for all horses to support health, performance and where the
Omega Oil is also recommended for use in small animals to maintain a
glossy coat and support healthy joints. DOSAGE:
