Why should I give an omega-3 supplement?
In recent years, extensive research and numerous clinical studies in humans and animals have confirmed that omega-3 fatty acids are involved in numerous vital physiological processes in the bodies, and that their deficit may cause or aggravate many serious medical problems and conditions.
Essential fatty acids are labelled “essential” because they cannot be synthesized or produced by the body.
The immune system relies heavily on essential fatty acids. The omega-6 fats are important for generating robust immune response, while the omega-3 work to keep the response in check and also protect the immune system from damage. The equine population needs supplemental omega-3 like Omega Balance EQ as they do not cover their daily requirements in the traditional diet.
