Hyfeed Alpha E Oil is a cold pressed, chemical-free, natural oil containing Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and which is also enriched with Vitamin E, a natural anti-oxidant.
Feeding oil to horses has been a common practice among many owners and trainers to reduce the dependence on grain diets and the associated high incidence of starch overload metabolic problems like colic, founder and fizzy behaviour.
Omega essential fatty acids have been shown to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes, reduce inflammatory responses from cells, reduce the incidence of laminitis and stomach ulceration and improve hair and coat condition.
Oil is more energy-dense than any other horse feed. The same weight of oil has about two and a half times more energy as corn and three times more energy than oats. For example, Alpha-E Oil will provide the same amount of energy as 3/4 kg of oats or half a biscuit of good hay. It is suitable for endurance horses, horses prone to tying up, show horses, yearlings in sale preparation and any other equine requiring condition.
Alpha E Oil is produced inhouse at Hyfeed who operate a cold press processing plant based in Toowoomba, Queensland, where they are able to generate the highest quality, chemical-free, natural oils.
