Unfortunately not all essential nutrients can be made by the horse themselves, and a changing diet could bring about an imbalance in certain Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) that are required for the horse's wellbeing. PureFlax contains a perfect balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6, which if lacking can affect the horse's temperament. PurFlax Flax Seed Oil is an easy to digest supplement which helps maintain strong hooves, glossy coats, joint and skin health, and an all-round better condition. It is also an important digestion aid and can reduce a lactic acid build up in the muscles, which commonly causes fatigue in performance horses.

PureFlax Flax Seed Oil is produced only in Yorkshire, from growing of the crop to the cold pressing of the seed. There is absolutely nothing added to this process, hence this being a 100% natural product with 58% Omega 3.

Max intake for foals

C. Fitz

I want to put weigh on our foals for the sales. What is the maximum quantity of flax a foal can have per day?

  • Brand Manager


Thank you for your question,

I have spoken to PureFlax they have advised no more than 10ml per day, but please would you call them as they would need to know on weight and ask a few questions and its always best to make sure based on weight.

Thank you,

Weight gain

Trudy Hall

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Cornwall, United Kingdom

Is this product likely to cause weight gain? My mare is already overweight.

  • Non-Executive Director

This is a relatively high energy supplement and so theoretically could contribute to weight gain. However the overall energy content is not high compared with the total energy intake of a typical horse and so weight gain should not be a problem if the diet is otherwise appropriate. A high fibre/low energy diet should be your aim generally, then this supplement could certainly be included.
