Optimize Equine Health and Performance with Vitazyme Feeding Oils:


As a trusted provider of equine products, we are dedicated to offering effective solutions for the well-being and performance of horses. Our range of Vitazyme feeding oils includes Carron Oil and Linseed Oil, both of which provide unique benefits to address specific concerns. In this blog post, we will delve into the key differences between Carron Oil and Linseed Oil, outline their individual benefits, and highlight the problems they solve.


Understanding Linseed Oil (Flaxseed Oil):

Linseed oil, also known as flaxseed oil, is derived from the seeds of the flax plant. It is renowned for its high content of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

Here are the key benefits of Linseed Oil:

  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Linseed oil's omega-3 fatty acids possess anti-inflammatory properties that support overall equine health and well-being.
  • Coat and Skin Health: The omega-3 fatty acids in Linseed Oil contribute to a lustrous coat, improved mane and tail condition, and can alleviate dryness and itchiness.
  • Joint Health: The natural anti-inflammatory properties of Linseed Oil aid in reducing joint inflammation and stiffness, promoting optimal joint health and mobility.
  • Digestive Health: Linseed oil supports healthy digestion and enhances nutrient absorption in horses.

Unveiling Carron Oil's Benefits:

Carron Oil, a unique combination of linseed (flaxseed) oil and lime water, provides specific advantages for equine digestive health. Here's why it's an excellent choice:

  • Soothing the Digestive System: Carron Oil acts as a gentle and soothing agent for the equine digestive system. It forms a protective coating on the stomach and gastrointestinal tract, alleviating mild digestive discomfort.
  • Gastric Ulcer Support: Carron Oil is often utilized as part of a management plan for horses with gastric ulcers. It helps create a protective barrier and reduces irritation in the stomach lining.
  • Smooth Passage of Feed: Carron Oil aids in the smooth passage of food through the digestive system, ensuring efficient digestion and supporting overall digestive function.

Choosing the Right Solution:

Understanding the distinct benefits of Carron Oil and Linseed Oil allows you to recommend the most suitable solution based on specific concerns. Here's a brief guide:


  1. Coat and Skin Health:

If a horse requires an improvement in coat condition, dryness, or itchiness, Linseed Oil's rich omega-3 fatty acids make it the ideal choice.


  1. Joint Discomfort:

For horses experiencing joint inflammation, stiffness, or reduced mobility, Linseed Oil's natural anti-inflammatory properties can help alleviate these issues and maintain optimal joint health.


  1. Digestive Sensitivity and Gastric Ulcers:

Carron Oil shines when it comes to addressing mild digestive discomfort and supporting gastric ulcer management. Its soothing properties and protective coating benefit horses with these concerns.


  1. Performance Optimization:

For a holistic approach to performance optimization, a combination of both Carron Oil and Linseed Oil can provide comprehensive support. Linseed Oil promotes coat health and joint support, while Carron Oil focuses on digestive sensitivity and gastric ulcer management.
