Why Hemp is the perfect additive for your horses diet?

Hemp seeds are a good source of protein and essential fatty acids, particularly omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Omega fatty acids have a large range of benefits for pets including supporting skin and coat condition, joint function and cardiovascular health.

Hemp is a ‘perfect protein’ – unusual for the plant kingdom – meaning it contains all 20 amino acids (the building blocks of all proteins in the body), and all of the ‘essential’ amino acids that horses need to get from their food. Unlike other plant-based proteins it is also highly digestible, making it a great addition to your horse’s diet to help them maintain optimal brain and body health.

Free of phytoestrogens (unlike soy based feeds)

Unlike soy, nuts and other legumes, hemp does not contain trypsin (enzyme) inhibitors and oligosaccharides, which can cause stomach and gastric upsets.

The composition of hemp seed oil is perfect for Horses. In fact, it’s one of the only natural food in the world that has Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) like Omega 6 and Omega 3 in the optimum ratio of 3:1 in a plant based form.

These are just a few reasons why Hemp is the perfect addition to your horses diet :) Reach out to us to find out more
