Through the addition of the following specific active ingredients, Equilibra 500 + Omega 3 provides a complementary nutritional support for all horses and ponies.


Active Ingredient

Why We Use It

Hemp Oil Derived  Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Hemp oil is probably the best source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids found in the plant world. This unique combination enables the horse to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils, but are crucial for the health, fertility, condition and performance of the animal.

Actisaf Sc47

Actisaf Sc47 is an EU approved live yeast culture that helps stabilise conditions in the hindgut and maintain high levels of microbial fermentation activity to improve overall fibre digestion.

Concentrated Yeast Derived Oligosaccharides

Oligosaccharides provide a feed source for beneficial bacteria and support the natural expulsion of antagonists found in feed and the environment.

Oat Bran Concentrated Soluble Fibres

Soluble Fibres are non-digestible sugars that can support natural self defence mechanisms in the bloodstream.

Bio Available Nutrients

Contains selenium, copper, manganese and zinc, plus marine sourced natural trace elements.

Microscopic Binder

A blend of microscopic absorbent compounds that aid the natural expulsion of antagonists found in feed and the environment.


Contains the Oatinol® Delivery System


For all of the above active ingredients to be utilised, they have to be absorbed from the horses’ digestive tract. Oatinol supplies natural antioxidants, polar lipids, beta glucans and galactolipid emulsifiers, required to maintain gut cell integrity, maintain the lining of the gut, support the immune system and aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.


Active Ingredient

Why We Use It

Oatinol - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that help establish the perfect medium for enzyme activity in the gut to absorb feed components.

Oatinol - Natural
Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are found naturally in oat bran. This tocotrienol form of vitamin E is 40 to 60 times more readily recycled in membrane systems and supports tissue integrity.

Oatinol - Oat Derived
Beta Glucans

Beta glucans provide nourishment for beneficial fibre degrading microbes and helps maintain a high level of natural immunity.

Oatinol - Polar Lipids

Polar lipids are found in high concentrations in cell membranes and are essential for tissue integrity and the controlled passage of materials into and out of cells.
