Flaxseed? How much is effective??
I was told that flaxseed, being high in Omega-3's, is an excellent natural anti-imflamitory for after riding. It needs to be ground up and added to a little grain since the seeds are so small and difficult for horses to chew.
If I am going to go through of the work of buying, storing, and grinding flaxseed everytime I ride, I was wondering if it even works. I am sure the Omega-3 is an added bonus either way, but how consistant should you be before it becomes effective? Is there a loading dose? Anyone out there use flaxseed for this purpose?
