Oatinol™ and how your animal benefits from the nutrients in its feed

Updated: Apr 14


When you choose a feed or supplement for your dog, horse or alpaca, you rightly want and expect your animal to benefit fully from the nutrients it provides. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case and many owners find themselves paying out for products that are not producing results.

Your animal’s uptake of nutrients

Many nutrients can be easily absorbed by the body, but some of the most important active ingredients found in animal feeds and nutritional supplements can’t always be fully utilised.

For example, you may choose a joint supplement for your dog that contains high levels of chondroitin or glucosamine both of which are important for maintaining cartilage and healthy joints.

Sadly, without the right carrier, your dog or horse will likely only absorb between 10% and 25% of the actives, meaning that 75% to 90% is simply passed – and with it, most of the beneficial effects. Not only that, unabsorbed actives like glucosamine can become an irritant in the lower bowel and cause digestive upsets.

What makes GWF Nutrition products different?

The Oatinol™ Delivery System is a groundbreaking concept that changes all that – and it’s used in all our products to make sure you get the very best results.

Using a unique blend of oils, including hemp oil and oat oil, Oatinol™ produces a very fine emulsion in the gut, and one which can easily pass through the high fat content cells that line the gut into the bloodstream.

This emulsion can bind with the larger molecules of nutrients like chondroitin and easily engulf small glucosamine molecules and carry them through the gut membrane, via several pathways, to be processed.

This pioneering approach to nutrition means a higher rate of absorption is maintained by your animal’s digestive tract with good bioavailability of important nutrients.

So what are the benefits of Oatinol™?


  • Maintains a high rate of uptake of important nutrients by the body, which means a sustained health impact for your animal.

  • Provides fast support that can be seen in a matter of days or a few weeks.

  • Provides excellent value for money.

  • Natural antioxidants that mop up free radicals and support healthy tissues.

  • Essential Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, vital for many processes in the body from cardiac and circulatory systems to bone formation.


The Oatinol™ Delivery System is a unique formulation which you will only find in GWF Nutrition products.
