Ultimate Oil is the next generation in oil supplementation.  Ultimate Oil is a blend of high quality oils providing more than 190 bioactive nutrients including healthy ratios of Omegas 3, 6, 9 and rare Omega 7 - nourishing the body with essential fatty acids, minerals, plant sterols, antioxidants, amino acids, anti-viral and antibacterial nutrients and vitamins including Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, B15, C, E, K.   

All the oils in ultimate Oils are of the highest quality, easily biologically absorbed by your horse and are included at specific levels for specific reasons so they work together, creating a synergetic effect for the total health and well-being of your horse.  One of these effects is the balance and ratios of essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6.   

It is important to remember that horses need a balance of both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids for optimal health and performance.  It isn't necessarily so that one is better than the other - they simply have different roles in the body and must be in balance with each other for optimal health and body function.  Omega 3 is responsible for repairing cellular walls and maintaining a fluid and efficient waste-nutrient transfer.  It's also critical for brain function and is instrumental in cleaning up after an injury has healed, acting as a potent anti-inflammatory.  Omega 6 on the other hand, is responsible for causing inflammation and immune system reactions, which is necessary to stabilize injuries and fight off infections.  

As herbivores and nomadic grazers, horses are naturally adapted to a diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids (ALA). These can be digested easily with positive effects on the horses’ system, but the ratio of Omega 6:3 must be kept in balance when additional oils are added to their diet. Cereal grains such as barley, oats, wheat and maize all contain high levels of Omega 6 compared to their Omega 3 levels, as do most oils like sunflower, corn and soya oil. Ultimate Oil contains a ratio of 1:1.4 (Omega 6 to Omega 3) helping to keep a healthy balance.

Ultimate Oil contains no fillers, bulking agents or cheap carrier oils, all the ingredients are of the highest quality and are there for a specific reason.
Ultimate oil contains no cod liver oil or fish products and is therefore a more natural product for
your horse. Horses are herbivores and not designed to eat fish. Our oils are also from sustainable sources and have no chance of containing contaminated substances like heavy metals that can occur in fish oils.

As you can see from the list of ingredients in Ultimate Oil any one of them fed on its own would
give good results for the health and wellbeing of your horse. Combine them together and you get the Ultimate in oil supplementation delivering fantastic results for the health and wellbeing of your horse.
