Flax Oil Products

Farmers and Horse Trainers have been using Stockhealth's FourFlax Flax Seed Oil to improve and maintain the health of their horses.

Cold-Pressed to a very high standard from Linseed Seed, Flax Seed Oil is rich in Omega 3, an Essential Fatty Acid that has many health benefits, and produces incredibly shiny coats...The Natural Choice for a Healthy Horse.

Many horse owners, breeders and trainers are now starting to feed some form of oil as part of the diet. Whether it be for a shiny coat, or an energy source, there are several types of oil available. Flax Seed Oil will provide fantastic results in terms of soft, shiny coats and the energy provided, but the key advantage of using Flax Seed Oil over other readily available oils is the Omega 3 content.

Flax Seed Oil provides the richest (almost 60%) natural source of Omega 3, an essential fatty acid (EFA) which is not generally present in equine foods. Like all animals, horses cannot manufacture this essential fatty acid which is so important for their overall health.
