V03 Max 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 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. Because their high energy density, oils are playing an increasing role in the diet of sport horses. They provide just over double the energy of the equivalent Weight (kg) 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:
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)
