Salmon oil vs. linseed oil
Both salmon oil and flaxseed oil are rich in essential fatty acids. These are fatty acids that the body cannot produce themselves, while the body needs them to function normally. The big difference between salmon oil and linseed oil is in the types of omega three fatty acids. Linseed oil is notably rich in 1 kind of omega three fatty acids (ALA), while salmon oil is also rich in EPA and DHA in addition to ALA.
This ALA is most present in vegetable oil, while EPA and DHA are mainly found in animal oil. ALA fatty acids must first be converted by the horse to the EPA and DHA to be used in the body. However, this process is relatively inefficient, resulting in a conversion of only 5-10%. The animal EPA and DHA omega-three fatty acids can be used directly by the horse so that the omega three fatty acids that are given through salmon oil are used much more efficiently.
