Kentucky Performance Products Contribute was developed to provide an easy and affordable way for you to add omega-3 fatty acids into the diet of your horses. It contains both plant and marine sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which help maintain health levels of inflammation throughout the body.

Omega fatty acids are known as essential fatty acids because they cannot be synthesized in the body and must be provided in the diet. Omega fatty acids are split into two categories: omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Both are necessary to the well-being of the horse; however, it is the amount of both fatty acids relative to each other that is most important for overall health.

Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are used in the synthesis of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. The primary function of these prostaglandins is the regulation of essential body functions such as immune and inflammatory response. Prostaglandins produced from the omega-6 series typically increase the inflammatory response, whereas those produced from the omega-3 series tend to support a lower level of inflammation. When the ratio between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids is unbalanced, unhealthy levels of inflammation can occur.

Horses evolved to exist on a grass-based diet high in omega-3 fatty acids and low in omega-6 fatty acids. Modern diets tend to include ingredients that are high in omega-6 and low in omega-3 fatty acids, throwing the critical 6 to 3 ratio out of whack. Supplementing with a high-quality omega-3 fatty acid brings that ratio back into balance and supports healthy levels of inflammation.

  • Contribute offers you an affordable way to include both beneficial plant (alpha-linolenic acid) and marine sources (EPA and DHA) of omega-3 fatty acids into the diet.
  • Contribute’s cherry flavor is very appealing to horses and because it is concentrated you only have to feed 1 or 2 ounces per day.

Contribute is recommended for:

  • Broodmares and breeding stallions
  • Foals and growing horses
  • Senior horses, particularly those with arthritis
  • Performance horses
  • Horses with allergies, hives, COPD (heaves)
  • Horses unable to graze on fresh green grass
