EO3 – KER – 946 mL

Print
Rich source of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA in a palatable liquid form
Discount
Description

Horses are often fed diets composed entirely of grain mixes and hay. Such diets are rich in omega-6 fatty acids but extremely low in omega-3 fatty acids. If vegetable oil is added to the ration, it further skews the ratio, with omega-6 fatty acids being overrepresented. To help counteract this imbalance, horses should be supplemented with omega-3 fatty acids, the richest sources of which are fish oils.

Kentucky Equine Research developed EO-3™, a potent marine-derived oil that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. EO-3 is a palatable oil that is top-dressed onto the feed. EO-3 contains the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA.

EO-3 is intended to be fed to horses of all classes and working levels to improve the critical omega-3:omega-6 ratio in their diets.

The equine athlete that is provided EO-3 can benefit from the difference in inflammatory response. In addition, EO-3 has also demonstrated benefits to the cardiovascular system, reproductive performance, and bone development in numerous research studies in a variety of animal species. The consumption of EPA and DHA from a source such as EO-3 is the only way to ensure that these fatty acids are available for metabolism of the “less-inflammatory” compounds and other metabolites beneficial for the horse’s overall health and well-being.

Features & Benefits: 

  • Palatable highly refined and flavored marine-derived oil
  • Strengthens immune function
  • Enhances bone metabolism and development
  • Reproductive benefits include improved fertility, improved colostrum quality, enhanced passive transfer of antibodies to foals, and increased sperm concentration, motility, and viability
  • ACVIM (American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine) ) consensus statement recommends DHA and EPA supplementation for horses with inflammatory airway disease/equine asthma
  • Improves glucose tolerance
  • Increases red blood cell flexibility
  • Benefits of DHA- and EPA-mediated inflammatory response include reduction in joint inflammation, allergic reactivity, exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, and exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage
  • Marine-derived long-chain fatty acids DHA and EPA are more efficiently used as precursors of local hormones than plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acid

Ingredients: Fish Oil, mixed tocopherols, artificial flavor.
