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.

Most Oils contain Omega 6 and 9 but no Omega 3. Those Oils that do posses Omega 3, including flaxseed, 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."
