Omega Complete was scientifically formulated to provide natural, high-quality ingredients containing essential long chain Omega fatty acids which evidence-based research has shown contributes to and supports the immune system and overall health. The Omega-3 fatty acids alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are important fatty acids for horses and other animals because EPA and DHA cannot be made in the body, and ALA from the diet can be converted to EPA and DHA. This is why EPA and DHA are essential – they ultimately need to be obtained from the diet.
Omega Complete is intended as a daily feed supplement to provide essential Omega fatty acids and their precursors.

Long Chain Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Animal Nutrition
There are two families of essential fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids and Omega-6 fatty acids. They are termed “essential” because they cannot be produced by the body, and must therefore be obtained from the diet. Supplementing the normal diet with the right amounts of high quality Omega-3 and Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA’s) will help ensure the proper ratio of these essential fatty acids in the diet.
Diets too high in sources of Omega-6 fats such as cereals, whole-grains etc tend to be detrimental because too much Omega-6 in the diet produces an inflammatory action, whereas Omega-3 supports anti inflammatory action in cells and tissues.
Omega-3 PUFA’s are needed to keep nerve cells and brain cells functioning properly. When there is a deficiency of Omega-3 PUFA’s and an excess of saturated fats in the diet, the membranes of these cells are less fluid. Fluidity is an important feature of any cell.
Without the proper ratio of Omega-3 EFAs in the diet, cell membranes tend to “stiffen”: they become less fluid and the cell’s ability to function optimally is compromised.
Flaxseed contains Biotin which is a B vitamin sometimes referred to as vitamin H or vitamin B7. It is one of the eight vitamins in the vitamin B-complex. The B vitamins, in general, help in promoting healthy nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver and a healthy mouth. Biotin is important in metabolism and energy production. Many studies have shown improvement in chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, with omega-3 supplementation.
Golden flaxseed is a rich, natural source of beneficial unsaturated and PUFAs. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is an Omega-3 fatty acid and present in milled flaxseed at 22%, and the omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid is at 7%. ALA is easily converted by the body to the other beneficial PUFAs EPA (eicosapentanoic acid) and DHA (docosahexanoic acid). Providing ALA therefore helps the body meet all its needs for EPA and DHA, the most important esential fatty acids.

For best results, introduce Omega Complete to the daily feed gradually over a period of 5 to 10 days.
Mix the powder into the feed (not hay), add water and ideally allow to soak for 30 minutes before feeding. Dry feeds should be wetted to minimise the risk of choke.
Cautions / Contraindications:
A feed supplement for horses not intended for food. Store in a cool dry place, keep out of direct sunlight. Reapply lid after use. Consult your veterinarian if using medication or for general advice.
