Camelina oil, the base ingredient of our products

8 Mar, 2021 | Horse Supplements

Excel Supplements seeks to create supplements with natural ingredients to help horses in the safest way possible, without any doping or harmful substance.

Why camelina oil? Which are its properties?

Camelina is an ingredient with a high percentage of omega-3, which helps to balance omega-3 and omega-6 concentrations in the body. It thus helps to maintain good cardiovascular health, which is so important in horses subjected to great physical exertion. Besides, camelina oil also nourishes the hair, making it look shiny and healthy, providing the horse with a good overall image.


Cardiovascular health

A study conducted by the University of Eastern Finland shows that camelina oil improves cardiovascular health, both in animals and humans, being particularly recommended when they suffer from prediabetes.

Anti-inflammatory effect

As studied by Christopher Hollingsworth, a non-invasive vascular surgery specialist, camelina oil is rich in antioxidants and vitamin E. These compounds help suppress inflammatory reactions, which so feared in sport horses.

Therapeutic and antioxidant action

In the United States, Scientists at the University of Illinois concluded that camelina seeds have a great therapeutic potential to cleanse and detoxify the liver, as well as to eliminate harmful substances from the body. This claim was supported by a study published in 2014 in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

AG Stables and the effects of Excel products, formulated with camelina oil:

In the words of Alfredo García Muñoz, Manager of AG Stables, located in Valladolid: ‘during the 2020/2021 winter, which has been very harsh due to the low temperatures and the heavy snowfall, supplementing our horses with Excel products has brought really noticeable improvements in comparison to the previous winter, in which they suffered a lot the climate of Castile and León, resulting in dull hair and recurrent inflammations. This has not happened this winter, thanks to Excel. Besides, they now have shiny hair and a very healthy appearance’.

To improve the overall health of their horses, Alfredo uses Excel products on a daily basis
