Vuma V03 Max Omega Oil

 

V03 Max Omega Oil is a specific, correctly balanced omega-3 blend of oils, containing the three critical omega-3 fatty acids: linolenic acid, EPA and DHA. V03 Max Omega Oil provides the additional benefits of powerful antioxidants, Vitamin E and garlic.

 

Oils are an essential part of a horse's diets, the major function being the provision of energy, the production of cell membranes and hormones, and storage for the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Oils are playing an increasing role in the diet of sport horses because their high energy density. They provide just over double the energy of the equivalent weight of grain, but are totally digestible in the small intestine, therefore reducing the behavioural problems associated with hind gut grain fermentation. 

 

Horses fed an omega-3 rich diet including EPA and DHA tended to have:

  • lower PCV

  • Increased blood viscosity

  • Improved oxygen supply

  • Decreased blood lipid concentration

  • Increased membrane elasticity

  • Regulating inflammatory response

  • Lower resting heart rate (lower heart rates are associated with a slower time to fatigue)
