FLAXIN 3™ provides a source of whole ground stabilized flax that is calcium:phosphorus balanced. In addition chelated minerals (zinc and copper), are added as they are essential nutrients needed to support melanin production and maintain healthy hair coat integrity. Direct fed microbials and yeast culture are added to help maintain normal gut integrity/digestion.

   

  • Stabilized whole ground flax (Omega 3 & 6)
  • Chelated minerals (Zinc, copper & Manganses)
  • Probiotics
  • Yeast Culture

#INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

Linolenic Acid (Omega-3) are essential fatty acids and must be obtained from the diet in order for 
the body to function well. Omega-3s help support a normal inflammatory response throughout the body. 

There must be a balance between the omega-3s and omega-6s for a proper but not excessive 
inflammatory response.

Linolenic Acid (Omega-6) There must be a 
balance between omega-3s and omega-6s for a proper but not excessive inflammatory response.

Calcium (Ca) is a micromineral found in highest amounts in bone and teeth. However, it also has important roles in muscle contraction, cell membranes, blood clotting, enzymes regulation, and hormone release. Absorption of calcium from the small intestine is controlled by vitamin D but can be reduced if there is too much phosphorus in the diet. Ideally, horses should receive slightly more calcium than phosphorus – a ratio between 1:1 and 2:1 is probably best. Pregnant and lactating mares, growing horses, and exercising horses may need more dietary calcium than an adult horse at rest.

Phosphorus (P) in bones not only provides structural support for the skeleton, but it also acts as a reserve of phosphorus for other bodily functions. Phosphorus is important in cell membranes and in reactions requiring cellular energy. Phosphorus also helps form the backbone of DNA and contributes to the pH and electrolyte balance in body fluids. The minerals calcium (Ca) and phosphorous (P) play a major role in proper growth and development of the skeletal system in horses. Calcium and phosphorus must be provided by a horse’s diet in the correct levels and ratio (somewhere in the 1:1 to 2:1 range). If more phosphorous than calcium is consumed by a horse, then calcium absorption can be impaired and skeletal malformations, poor growth, and muscle disorders can occur.

Zinc (Zn) is a micromineral involved in over 100 enzyme systems ranging from support of connective tissue formation and antioxidants
to carbohydrate metabolism and immune system function. It is most recognized for its role in healthy skin
and hooves. Supplementation should be considered because amounts in normal feedstuffs may not meet requirements.

Manganese (Mn) is a micromineral essential for bone formation, growth and reproduction. It is also essential in carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Supplementation should be considered because not all diets provide the same levels of manganese. It is among the least toxic of the trace minerals, and it plays an important role in young, growing horses as well as active performance horses.

Copper (Cu) is a micromineral required for production of normal connective tissues including tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. As a component of many enzyme systems, it is also involved in making iron available to the body for blood, in producing skin and coat pigments, in proper nerve signaling and in repairing antioxidants. Low copper levels in mares and foals have been implicated in developmental orthopedic disease (DOD) including osteochrondrosis (OCD).

Vitamin E (Tocopherol) is considered the most important antioxidant and works closely with selenium to protect the body from the oxidative stress of exercise, illness and certain medical conditions. Found in high amounts in fresh pasture, levels begin to decay the moment pasture is cut for hay. That is why any horse that does not have access to grass — regardless of its activity level or health — should receive vitamin E supplementation. Horses are not very efficient in storing Vitamin E and deficiency may be accelerated if the diet is deficient in selenium.

Active Dry Yeast:  Supports enzyme activity for fiber digestion in the hind gut and provides a direct source of nutrients to nourish good bacteria.  Stabilizes digestive flora during periods of stress for overall health and performance.

Probiotics are live microorganisms fed to promote healthy digestive and immune function. When these "good" bugs break down food ingredients that the body normally can't, they produce energy and vitamins for the body, food for cells in the cecum and colon, and byproducts that keep the "bad" bugs from growing. Research suggests probiotics are useful in repopulating the intestine with "good" bugs after antibiotic use and may benefit certain horses with diarrhea. A common term used for probiotics is direct fed microbials (DFM)

She looks amazing

I couldn't be happier with the results that Flaxin-3 has given our horses, especially my black filly Georgie. She looks amazing with a healthy coat and rich color that she didn't have before we fed Flaxin-3.
