Functions of Omega Gold
- Limits the rapid onset of fatigue, dehydration and hyperthermia during exercise.
- Decreases inflammation, stiffness and joint pain associated with heavy training
- Reduces muscle damage by interrupting the production of free radicals which cause tissue damage.
- Reduces blood lactate levels while improving the lactate threshold.
- Assists in maintaining a stable and predictable blood sugar level.
- Promotes lean muscle tissue growth and increases muscle oxygen uptake.
- Increases stress tolerance and promotes the release of endorphins.
- A potent source of cool energy which enhances endurance and stamina.
Energy For Performance
Most oils contain Omega 6 and 9 and no Omega 3 and those that do have Omega 3 generally provide only one of the three critical fatty acids – linolenic acid. This forces the horse’s metabolism to try and manufacture the other two elements, eicosopentanoic acid (EPA) and docosohexanoic acid (DHA).
A highly inefficient process, it is unlikely at the recommended feeding rates for other oils, that any benefit is derived for the horse. Omega 3 oils which only contain linolenic acid would have to be fed at 5 to 10 times the rate, or more, to match OMEGA GOLD – obviously an expensive and impractical course.
