Cool Energy Performance Oil
VECTA Omega Gold is a blend of specially selected vegetable oils including Flaxseed; for a high ratio of Omega 3 and Coconut Oil; for increased energy, flavour & aroma.
Vegetable oils are rich in Omega 3 and 6. Omega Gold supplementation induces changes in membrane composition, which modulate the decrease in EMF (erythrocyte membrane fluidity) induced by exercise and fatty acid composition
Coconut oil has been classed as a antipyretic which means it has the ability to have a reducing effect on fevers.
Antipyretics are also involved with anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities.
Oils have four main roles in the body, however for an oil to be most effective it must cater for all elements of Omega 3
VECTA Omega Oil ticks all the boxes:
- Energy Production- Use of oils for energy preserves blood glucose levels, delaying the onset of fatigue.
- Storage of fat soluble vitamins. - Oils provide an important storage of energy and Vitamins A, D, E and K.
- Formation of Hormones- regulates inflammatory response and the function of the immune and reproductive systems.
- Building Cell Membranes - Takes place throughout the body and includes skin, coat and blood cells. Oils have an essential role in making cell walls and membranes flexible, assisting blood flow, circulation and delivery of oxygen to muscles.

Most Oils contain Omega 6 and 9 but no Omega 3. Those Oils that do posses 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 vital fatty acids.
- Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), a polyunsaturated fatty acid found in fish oils
- Docosohexaenoic Acid (DHA), an Omega 3 fatty acid that is a primary structural component of brain, cortex, skin, spermatoza and retina.
According to the following scientific paper published in June 2005, the data from both the scientific research and clinical studies support dietary supplementation of Omega 3 fatty acids, in particular DHA.

Extract from the link above: "Importantly, for an Omega 3 oil to be effective it must contain three critical fatty acids: Į-linolenic, Eicosopentanoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexanoic acid (DHA). DHA is the active end point of Omega 3 metabolism in the body. Since today's diets contain fewer direct dietary sources of DHA, the body must convert omega-3 fatty acids to DHA. Flaxseed oil and linseed oils do not provide the beneficial effects of Omega 3 supplementation because they do not contain the necessary amounts of DHA and EPA. Linseed contains only Į-linolenic acid, which the body must convert to DHA and EPA. This is an inefficient process and Omega 3 oils which only contain linolenic acid have to be fed at 5-10 times the rate, or more, to match those formulated to contain DHA and EPA."
