Dorwest Omega Star
What are Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)?
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), such as Omega-3 and Omega-6, are fats that must be provided in the diet as the body cannot produce them naturally. They are required for normal growth and functioning of cells, muscles, nerves, organs and the production of prostaglandins (hormone-like substances which are key to many important processes).
Deficiencies of EFAs can be linked to a variety of health problems, but by choosing a good quality Omega 3 and 6 supplement for your dog, you can ensure that they’ll receive all the necessary essential Fatty Acids they need. Supplements rich in Omega 3 and 6 are particularly effective for maintaining skin condition.
What are the ingredients in Dorwest’s Omega Star® For Dogs?
Our Omega Star® For Dogs has gained quite a reputation, containing a carefully created blend of nutritious plant oils, including Flaxseed oil, Blackcurrant Seed oil, Borage Seed oils and natural Vitamin E, to help nourish the skin’s moisture barrier and restore coat shine and hair growth.
- Flaxseed oil (also known as Linseed oil) is naturally high in Omega 3 and 6 and can help to regulate skin renewal, reduce scurfiness and improve coat quality and condition.
- Blackcurrant Seed oil is a highly nutritious oil, rich in Omega 3 and 6. It includes an Omega 3 that has unique properties to help soothe sensitive skin and is perfect to help dogs with thin, poor coats.
- Borage Seed oil (Starflower) is one of the richest sources of Omega 6 GLA and is known to help coat growth and improve skin condition.
- Natural Vitamin E is a well-known antioxidant which neutralises Free Radicals, perfect for maintaining the skin’s natural defences.
