Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil in Equine Nutrition

FACT: “Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh, reports that our hemp seed ingredients offer significant benefits to health, enhanced body condition, improved energetic efficiency, improved athletic performance and less excitable behaviour.

FACT: “Dr. Tim Ober, USET veterinarian, conducted a small study in Florida in 2009 on hemp oil for the high performance jumpers. What he found was that hemp oil helped to maintain muscle glycogen reserves, thus reducing muscle glycogen depletion and fatigue.”

  3. I’ve been feeding my mare hemp seed oil for the past year and she loves it! She has always been shiny but now getting lots of compliments on how glossy she is. I think it’s gotta be better than canola etc. I just really don’t love the price.

    • Cathy,

      We absolutely have enjoyed your testimonial with your mare using hempseed oil that is fantastic!! And, yes to your comment hempseed oil is far better than the canola for multiple reasons. Hempseed Oil is nature’s most perfectly balance plant-based, nonGMO omega oil that provides a healthy balance of omega 3/6/9.
      There are two fatty substances, one omega 3 and one omega 6, that are considered “essential,” meaning the horse’s body cannot produce them. Therefore, they must be in the diet, hempseed oil offers this balance naturally; even better than olive oil (9:1), soy oil (7:1), flax oil (1:4), and even canola oil (2:1).

      Cathy, we like to offer a complimentary gift for your mare, for a token of our appreciation of your comments, taking time out of your busy day to send us your mare’s testimonial in using hemp seed oil. Please email us direct with your address, many thanks!!!
