The colder and colder it gets… the more nutritional support your horse needs.
Despite our best efforts, there are many essential bio-active compounds you can include into your horses diet to help them better get through these cold months.
Omega 7 can help your horse transition into spring with great health and stunning looks!
So how can omega 7 help your horse stay strong and healthy this winter?
Every horse owner knows that horses can have finicky digestive systems.
Horses are designed to be eating roughage such as grass or hay around the clock. In the winter-time, horses are often kept indoors and often don’t have 24-hour access to forages to munch on.
This can lead to a pH imbalance in the stomach, predisposing your four-hooved friend to painful gastric ulcers and poor digestion. Also, many horses don’t drink or eat as much when their “routine” has been changed. Due to these factors, veterinarians usually see a spike in the number of colic cases during the winter months.
When your horse’s GI tract is under stress, prevention is the key.
The sea buckthorn berry (hippophae rhamnoids) is packed with the rare and ancient omega 7, and has been clinically shown to keep the mucosa healthy in the horse’s GI tract. If your horse does succumb to GI problems this winter, sea buckthorn can be a miraculous, 100% natural and food based resource to help prevent gastric ulcers.(1,2)
Skin/Coat Health & Omega-7
Many horses will develop a lack-luster coat during the winter months and even dry skin around the eyes and muzzle. Omega 7 fatty acids in sea buckthorn are key building blocks for skin health. It helps support collagen production within the skin, which improves its elasticity and strength.
You’ll be keeping SeaBuck as your own “little secret” after you see that winter coat shed away this spring.
Heart- healthy Omega-9 & Omega-3
Omegas 9 and 3 are “good” fats that provide a host of health benefits. They are found in many vegetarian sources such as sea buckthorn berries, canola seed and nuts. These fats have a positive effect on cardiovascular health and can provide your horse with an energy boost to stay warm during the cold weather.
Intake of omega-9s has been linked to increases in metabolism and improved mood. When it’s cold and dreary outside, who wouldn’t benefit from a little boost?
