THE EFFECTS OF CRANBERRY SEED OIL, FLAXSEED MEAL, AND SOYBEAN OIL ON PLASMA EICOSAPENTAENOIC ACID, DOCOSAHEXAENOIC ACID, AND ALPHA-LINOLENIC ACID CONCENTRATIONS IN HORSES
By Kelsey Johnson Nonella (PDF)


Synopsis: A completely randomized design experiment was conducted to examine the effects of cranberry seed oil, flaxseed meal, and soybean oil on plasma eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), alpha – linolenic acid (ALA), and sum fatty acid concentrations in horses.

Summary: Read more about the details of Dr. Kelsey’s masters research in her thesis. She fed horses cranberry seed oil, flaxseed meal, and soybean oil, and monitored Essential Fatty Acids in blood. Her results were inconclusive on the benefits of feeding feeds high in Omega-3’s.
