Fish oils contain the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), EPA and DHA have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits that not only improve joint health but also improve immune function, protect cell membranes from oxidative damage, improve central nervous function, cardiac and digestive health.

EPA and DHA improve elasticity of Red Blood Cells. During exercise, blood volume increases, placing enormous strain on the tiny pulmonary capillaries. The Increased elasticity facilitates easier passage of RBC through the blood vessels; therefore, reducing the incidence of EIPH (exercise induced pulmonary hemorrhaging).

 At Kansas State University, Thoroughbreds fed diets rich in Fish Oils reported a reduction in EIPH after 83 days, Researchers at the University of Liegein Belgium, reported an increase in RBC membrane fluidity in training horses fed a diet enriched with DHA and EPA for four weeks. Both of these studies support the possibility that diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the incidence of EIPH or lung bleeding.

 Additional benefits of Fish Oil includes reproductive capacity improved with stallions fed diets rich in EPA and DHA and lactating mares passed these essential fatty acids to their milk, improving immunity in their colostrum.

Fish Oil can be combined with the Golden Horse Product Breathe Strong to maximize the cardiovascular benefits, reducing the incidence of exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH), and improving race performance.
