Feed a Daily Dose of Goodness
Most supplemented vitamins and minerals are synthetic. But just 4 oz. of our Whole Food seed mix supplies these essential fatty acids - in nature's perfect balance. 100% Natural.
Natural nutrients protect, detoxify & fight cancer - proven by research.
Phytosterols are compounds found only in plants. They have a chemical structure very similar to cholesterol, and when present in the diet in sufficient amounts, are believed to reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response, and decrease risk of certain cancers.
Silymarin, a rare flavonolignan complex and powerful anti- oxidant 10 times stronger than vitamin E, comes from Milk thistle seed. Scientific studies confirm it protects the liver from a variety of common toxins, including alcohol, pesticides, heavy metal poisoning, pollution, and medications of all kinds. It has been used for more than two thousand years for medicinal purposes. Even in today's medicine, its use as a detoxifying agent and treatment for liver disease and to prevent cancer is well validated by research.
Cucurbitin, an unusual amino acid that kills tape worms and roundworms, is reliable and safe.
Myosin is a rare amino acid that is the primary protein constituent of nearly all muscles.
All essential fatty acids and all eight essential amino acids are represented in our seed mix as well as L-tryptophan, digestive enzymes, high quality protein and soluble dietary fiber.
The Negatives of fish oil
Don't feed Fish Oils to your horse!
Your horse does not have a gallbladder - which is necessary to digest and metabolize animal fats. Fish oil has been linked to hormone imbalances, muscle damage, insulin resistance and digestive upset in horses. For more info, read below.

What are the health risks of feeding fish oils?
Lots of producers of fish-oil capsules promote large dosages of supplements. So, are there any side effects from fish oils?
The US National Institute of Health classifies low intake of omega-3 fatty acids from fish as “Generally Regarded as Safe”. However, they do highlight certain fish oil side effects that may cause trouble.
- damage to muscle cells - In the horse, a 20- to 200-fold increase in CK is indicative of ultrastructural damage to muscle cells (Valberg, 1996). Muscle damage may occur post excersice.
- fish oil-treated horses had an increase in insulin sensitivity - In a current study, both CK and AST activities increased in the serum post exercise. This may indicate that the fish oil-treated horses had an increase in insulin sensitivity. *for more information see literature cited
- fish oil may increase the risk of bleeding - The omega-3 in the fish oil may increase the risk of bleeding when taken in large doses. The bleeding can take the form of strokes, nosebleeds and blood in the urine. As the fish oils seem to decrease platelet aggregation, bleeding times may be longer.
- unless the fish oil is molecularly distilled, it most likely contains high levels of hazardous contaminants - A major worry with fish oils and the fish they are created from is poisoning from heavy metal and other pollutants. Mercury, dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are found in some species of fish.
- stomach upset are a common side effect of fish oil supplements - Diarrhea may also occur, with potentially severe diarrhea at very high doses. There are also reports of increased burping, acid reflux/heartburn/indigestion, abdominal bloating, and abdominal pain. Fishy aftertaste is a common effect.
- reduction of blood pressure - The impact on blood pressure appears to be dose dependent.
- fish oil place high demands on the body’s vitamin E supply - Vitamin E plays a part in metabolizing omega acids. To avoid this fish oil side effect, vitamin E is added to many commercial fish oil products. As a result, regular use of vitamin E-enriched products may lead to elevated levels of this fat-soluble vitamin. Fish liver oil contains the fat-soluble vitamins A and D, and therefore fish liver oil products (such as cod liver oil) may increase the risk of vitamin A or D toxicity.
- elevates bad cholesterol - One side effect of fish oils and their fatty acids is an increase low-density lipoprotein levels (”bad cholesterol”) by 5-10%. This is dependent on the dose used.
- disturbs blood glucose levels - The oils have also been noted to have an effect on blood glucose levels in Type 2 Diabetes but no long-term effects have been reported.
