Intestinal transit and gloss: Pro flaxseed 3 kgis a small high-fat dark brown seed of the flax plant. The seed coat contains mucus substances that swell strongly in the presence of water. The mucus has a soothing effect on the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract because it applies a layer to the intestinal wall. Flax seed therefore ensures good bowel function, improves digestion, helps horses with molting and gives a nice shiny coat. Linseed is the richest source of omega-3 fatty acids (about 40-60%) of plant feed for horses. A supplement of omega-3 fatty acids is needed to promote the balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. When these fatty acids are present in a good proportion, this has a positive effect on the skin, the coat and the immune system. Linseed can, however, contain hydrocyanic acid. This substance is poisonous but disappears when boiling. That is why it is necessary to always pre-boil linseed. However, this must always be fresh because the combination of moisture and temperature quickly gives rise to oxidation and rancidity of the fats present.
Hippalgo pro linseed is already pre-cooked, stabilized and granulated. As a result, no oxidation can take place and all good properties are retained. In addition, it is so easy to administer.
