The addition of linseeds to the horse’s diet is an excellent choice for any horse and particularly in cases where the horse is struggling with inflammatory or immune conditions.

Linseed has a high oil content of around 41% and is commonly
used in equine nutrition for their high Omega 3 fatty acid content and their
Omega 3 to 6 ratio is very similar to that of grass, the natural diet of the
horse! 

The Omega 3 and Omega 6 group of essential fatty acids are
key players in many bodily functions and are extremely important for healthy
physiology. They are referred to as ‘essential’ because they must be present in
adequate amounts in the diet and cannot be manufactured in the body.  The
Omega 6’s are needed for inflammatory and innate immune reactions, which means
they are considered to be  pro-inflammatory. Whereas the Omega 3’s have
the opposite function. They are the counter-regulatory substance of
inflammation and immune reaction –  in other words they have the ability
to control inflammation.
