Benefits

Wellpride Benefits

Focus

Twenty percent of the fats in the brain must be made of the right kinds of omega-3 for optimal functioning. Without enough omega-3, at best the brain doesn't fire properly. At worst, it becomes moody, unfocused and forgetful. 

Respiration 

Reduced inflammation in the lungs and airway means less irritation and enhanced oxygenation of the blood.

Joints 

Without enough omega-3 in the system, omega-6 promotes systemic inflammation. With omega-3, research clearly indicates the joints hold up better to the rigors of competition and advanced aging.

Skin and Coat

With enough omega-3 in the system, it's common to see allergic issues, dry skin, psoriasis and all sorts of skin problems fade away. 

Energy

Wellpride's omega-3 represents a calorically dense, cold source of energy (meaning omega-3 fish oil fats do not make a horse unmanageable). The energy concentration in fat is about 2.5 times that of carbohydrates, without creating any of the pro-inflammatory problems associated with corn oils or processed feeds. 

Muscles 

Reports from users in the field unanimously report a noticeably faster and better recovery after exertion. Other omega-3 research from human trials show that omega-3 supplementation can help athletes build more muscle mass. 

Hoof Integrity

Omega-3 helps promote healthy hoof growth and strength by combatting the pro-inflammatory omega-6s.

Stomach

Research shows that omega-3 prevents ulcers in other species, and strong anecdota evidence shows similar results in horses, along with potentially a great protection against colic.
