Camelina oil is also rich in Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as an important antioxidant for horses. It helps maintain a healthy immune system and supports normal nerve and muscle function.

Horses need vitamin E in their diet because they cannot synthesize it in their body. Vitamin E protects the fatty acids from oxidation and improves the shelf life of the product . Camelina oil is less prone to going rancid than flax oil and other plant oils.
