Managing Healthy Inflammation for Equine Health

Nutrition That Works at the Cellular Level

Providing a diet that helps manage inflammation can help support longevity and all aspects of health in your horse as well as performance. Platinum Performance® Equine provides omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, macro and trace minerals, vitamins and antioxidants to support health at the cellular level and promote normal, healthy levels of inflammation.

Are You Feeding the Right Fat?

Omega 3s are “good fats” required by every cell to properly function. Unable to produce adequate omegas on their own, horses must instead rely on their diet to provide these essential fatty acids that support a healthy level of inflammation. In contrast, omega-6 fatty acids (required in moderation), are pro-inflammatory and can have a systemic negative effect on equine health.

Increasing the Ratio of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

In a university study, percentages of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in red blood cell membranes from 5 horses were compared before and after 6 weeks of supplementation with Platinum Performance® Equine. Supplementation increased the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in the cell membranes by 78%, causing a 40% decrease in the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids.

A Healthy Source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Many of today's grains and equine feeds contain far fewer omega-3s and more omega-6 fatty acids. This dietary imbalance may predispose the horse to excessive inflammation, which has been implicated in many diseases. Made from flax oil, Healthy Weight oil is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids that help support a normal inflammatory response.
