Why is the Omega-3 to Omega-6 Ratio Important?

Omega-3 fatty acids are the “good fats” required by every cell in the body to properly function. Unable to produce adequate omega-3s on their own, horses must instead rely on diet to provide these essential fatty acids. In contrast, omega-6 fatty acids, though required in moderation, are pro-inflammatory and can have a negative effect on health.

“Every year we start our futurity horses on Platinum products and I'm always amazed how good they look and feel. Our three-year-olds used to always lose weight come futurity time and now that we use Platinum products, they stay healthy and strong.”

“Healthy Weight has been such a welcome addition to my program. When our sales horses arrive, especially those from overseas, they typically have lost a lot of weight. Once they arrive, we put them on Healthy Weight in addition to our feeding program, and they immediately put back on any weight they lost and look better than ever. They work hard and it is very important to me that they have the healthy fat calories they need to thrive.”

“Since my horses have been on Platinum, their hair coats are shinier, they maintain condition, and they perform and recover better. My three-year-olds are pushed to their limits during futurity season and feeding them Platinum assures me they are getting all the joint, muscle and energy requirements they need to compete at their best.”
