Flaxseed oil has gained significant attention in the equine community due to its potential health benefits for horses. A recent study conducted on this topic shed light on the advantages of incorporating flaxseed oil into equine diets.

Study – Effect of Dietary Flaxseed Oil Supplementation on the Redox Status, Haematological and Biochemical Parameters of Horses’ Blood

Enhanced Coat and Skin Health:

The study revealed that Flaxseed oil can greatly contribute to improving a horse’s coat and skin health. By supplementing their diet with Flaxseed oil, horse owners can expect to observe a shinier, softer, and healthier coat. Additionally, linseed oil has been shown to alleviate common skin issues, such as dryness, itching, and inflammation.

Support for Joint Function:

Another significant finding of the study was the positive impact of Flaxseed oil on joint health in horses. The omega-3 fatty acids present in Flaxseed oil possess anti-inflammatory properties, which can aid in reducing joint inflammation and promoting joint mobility. Horses suffering from arthritis or joint stiffness may benefit from the inclusion of Flaxseed oil in their diet.

Digestive Health Improvement:

Flaxseed oil has been found to have positive effects on equine digestive health. The study indicated that linseed oil can enhance digestion and absorption of nutrients, leading to better overall digestive function. Moreover, it may assist in preventing and alleviating common digestive issues, such as colic and gastric ulcers.

Boosting the Immune System:

The immune-boosting properties of flaxseed oil were highlighted in the study. The oil’s high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids helps strengthen the immune system, making horses less susceptible to infections and diseases. By incorporating Flaxseed oil into their diet, horse owners can aid in maintaining their horses’ optimal health and well-being.

Weight Management Support:

For horses struggling with weight management issues, Flaxseed oil can be a valuable addition to their diet. The study demonstrated that the oil’s healthy fat content helps regulate weight by promoting lean muscle development while reducing body fat. This makes Flaxseed oil an ideal dietary supplement for horses requiring weight gain or weight loss.

The research conducted on the benefits of Flaxseed oil for horses underscores its potential to significantly improve various aspects of equine health.

From enhancing coat and skin health to supporting joint function and boosting the immune system, Flaxseed oil has proven to be a valuable supplement for equine diets. By incorporating a quality Flaxseed oil such as CEN Oil, horse owners can contribute to their horse’s overall well-being and quality of life.


CEN Oil is highly suitable for ulcer-prone horses, due to its nutrient profile and anti-inflammatory properties.

Hoof Integrity

Omega 3 is important for the hoof wall microtubules and laminae so they are built with suppleness and strength. The slick-looking surfaces are brought from a network of fats and waxes. The function can be described as the “glue” holding the hoof together. They keep the environmental moisture out but the critical tissue moisture in.

Why CEN Oil is More Effective than Other Flaxseed Oils for Horses?

CEN Oil is the best oil choice for horses due to its high Omega 3 levels. Most oils contain Omega 6 and 9 but low Omega 3 (coconut oil contains no Omega 3 and is mainly saturated fat). There are many oils available on the market with an unnatural Omega profile, having higher levels of Omega 6 to Omega 3 (which is opposite to what is found in natural fresh pasture. (1)(2)). Dr. Juliet Getty – a highly regarded and internationally respected, independent equine nutritionist writes:

“Omega 3s block the formation of inflammatory molecules that are readily formed from Omega 6’s. Take a close look at the fat sources you are feeding to confirm that enough Omega 3’s are in the diet.”
