Equine Challenge ™ Flax is a human grade Canadian milled flax seed, the same milled flaxseed used with all other Equine Challenge™ products. Flaxseed contains 28% dietary fiber of which 7-10% is soluble fiber (which dissolves in water) and 11-18% is insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber will turn into a jelly like consistency and will slow the introduction of glucose into the blood stream and will help move sand through the gut. Soluble fiber is of great benefit to horses with insulin resistance and equine metabolic disorder. 50% of the dietary fat in milled flaxseed is the essential fatty acid, Omega 3 (alpha linolenic acid).
Omega 3 EFA’s will help your horse produce a nice shiny coat and will help with many dry skin issues. Flaxseed is rich in anti-oxidants, high in Omega 3 fatty acids, high in both soluble and insoluble fiber at a price which is hard to beat.
Equine Challenge Flax Feeding Instructions: 2 – 8 ounces daily or as needed.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry location away from direct sunlight. Keep tightly sealed.
