EO-3™

RICH SOURCE OF OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS DHA & EPA

£70.95 £70.95
Per bottle

SUITABLE FOR:

  • Increasing the omega-3 ratio in the diet
  • Performance horses on high cereal, low pasture diets
  • Broodmares to support colostrum quality which directly aids foal immune function
  • Stallions to boost sperm quality and quantity
  • Supporting joint health and allergic reactivity and skin sensitivity

FEATURES & BENEFITS:

  • Increases the omega-3:6 ratios in horses fed high cereal, low pasture diets
  • Potential to pass through the placenta to the developing foetus to aid in development of the nervous system
  • Positively affects sperm motility and viability
  • Superior source of omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA compared to plant sources
  • Highly palatable in comparison to other marine derived sources of omega-3 fatty acids
  • High percentage of long chain omega-3 fatty acids
  • Highest ration of omega-3: 6 fatty acids when compared to other commonly fed oils

EO-3™ is a unique and preferential source of omega-3 fatty acids, derived from marine sources that can help maintain an optimal omega-3: omega-6 fatty acid ratio in equine diets. These essential fatty acids cannot be made by the horse and have to be supplied by the diet. Only fish oils are direct sources of EPA and DHA, and EO-3™ is flavoured to overcome any palatability issues.

There are two main categories of essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Grass fed horses receive a large proportion of omega-3 essential fatty acids from their grazing. Hay and cereals contain less omega-3’s. The equine body is more suited to a diet higher in omega-3’s compared to omega-6’s. Modern feeding regimes, combined with management and an increased reliance on conserved forages, could mean that some horses are receiving a higher proportion of omega-6 fatty acids. Supplementing the diet with EO-3™ will help to restore balance.

Omega-3 fatty acids can have positive effects on reproduction, bone development and numerous inflammatory conditions in horses. Allergic reactions and skin sensitivity may be helped by supplementing with EO-3.

Plant derived omega-3’s are converted in the body from their basic form to more complex and highly effective forms. Marine derived omega-3 sources supply these more complex forms directly into the body and therefore are a more potent way of supplying omega-3’s.

Equine athletes supplemented with EO-3 benefit from a reduction in inflammatory response. In addition, EO-3 has 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.


Reproductive advantages of omega-3 fatty acids are abundant. Stallions supplemented with EPA and DHA showed a significant increase in the number of normally shaped sperm and a rise in the concentration of spermatozoa in the semen. Positive effects on sperm viability and motility have also been demonstrated.

Supplementation of pregnant mares with DHA and EPA confers benefits to the developing foetus since the placenta may be responsible for providing DHA and EPA to the foetal nervous system. Mares also effectively incorporate these fatty acids into their milk, with the benefits being delivered directly to the suckling foal. Broodmares on diets high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids may also produce richer colostrum. Studies have shown that foals of supplemented mares seemed to have a stronger immune system than foals suckling mares not fed omega-3 fatty acids. Other findings suggest that mares with a history of abortion may benefit from nutritional support with omega-3 fatty acids.
