EO-3™

  • from $159.95


Concentrated Direct Source Of DHA And EPA Omega 3-Fatty Acids

EO-3 is a rich source of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA in a palatable liquid form.

EO-3 can be fed to all classes of horses including foals, breeding stock, and performance horses to improve the critical ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids in the diet. 

EO-3 provides preferential precursors for production of anti-inflammatory local hormones and regulates gene expression to positively affect insulin sensitivity.

Why use EO-3?

  • Ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 is 12:1
  • Benefits of DHA- and EPA-mediated inflammatory response include reduction in joint inflammation, allergic reactivity, Equine Asthma (IAD, RAO)
  • Improves glucose tolerance
  • Strengthens immune function
  • Increases red blood cell flexibility, which reduces the risk of exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH)
  • Reproductive benefits include improved fertility and colostrum quality, enhanced passive transfer of antibodies to foals, and increased sperm concentration, motility, and viability
  • Deodorised fish oil with cherry flavour for great palatability

When to use EO-3

  • Horses in intense work
  • Horses with EIPH (bleeders)
  • Horses on high-grain diets, or omega-6 skewed diets
  • Horses with joint inflammation
  • Horses with allergies and skin conditions
  • Horses with metabolic syndrome
  • Horses with fertility concerns, including stallions and mares around breeding time and for lactating mares and mares in late pregnancy

Not all Omega 3 Sources are Equal!

EO-3 contains more long-chain omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) compared to other omega 3 supplements.

Plant-based supplements contain omega 3 fatty acids in the short-chain form and the conversion in horses to the long-chained form of EPA and DHA is not very efficient.

EO-3 has a total omega 3:6 ratio of 12:1, compared to a linseed which is 3:1 and canola oil which is 1:1.5. Adding just 30ml of EO-3 will provide more benefits associated with omega 3 supplementation than a plant-based supplement.
