About Mount Mills Flax Oil
It All Began With Horses
Mount Mills Cold Pressed Flax Oil is produced from seed to drum by Jim Magill on his farm based in County Down. Jim’s passion for all thing equestrian led him to investigate how to improve or benefit the well being of his horses and OMEGA Oils proved to be the key dietary factor identified.
Mount Mills Flax Oil is the result of many years research experimenting with many different crops such as marigold, hemp as well as flaxseed. Jim found that flaxseed produced the best balance of Omega 3 oil and Omega 6 oil – the two most essential fatty acids that your horse cannot naturally produce. On his farm Jim plants the flaxseed, harvests the crop, cold presses the flaxseed, packs and labels the product.
So from seed to drum – its all done on the Mount Mills farm.
The process begins with blowing the flax seed into two 40-tonne storage tanks. From there the flax seed is augered into a holding bin, which acts as a holder for the actual press. The seed is then put though a modified cold press process that is unique to Mount Mills and has been developed by Jim. The flax oil is collected in plastic tanks, and the residue called flax cake, is elevated away.
Jim has put over 5 years research into this product and the Mount Mills Cold Pressed Flax Oil should be given to your horse daily by mixing 100 ml – 120 ml of the flax oil with the horse’s feed. The benefits of the flax oil for your horse should be visible from about week 10 onwards. Mount Mills Cold Pressed Flax Oil is available in a 20 litre drum or a 4.5 litre tub.
Proven Benefits With Horses …. What Next ….?
With the industrial plant functioning and the existing production providing now proven benefits to the health and efficiency of horses, Jim turned his attention to what other animals might be able to use the Omega oil rich flax seed oil. Research turned up that dogs also require the essential fatty acids that are present in cold pressed flax oil, and again just like horses, they do not produce these naturally so need to ingest them direct. The end result ….. Mount Mills DogXcel® a feed supplement for dogs.
Two variants exist to date – a Working Dog formula and a more general domestic dog formula. Both products help keep coats healthy and aid in joint mobility.
DogXcel is only available to buy through selected Pet Care retailers and veterinary practices and is proving to be a popular choice with dog owners
natu® Cold Pressed Flax Oil For Humans
It seemed only fair to pass the benefits of an Omega Oils rich product onto humans as well, so the brand natu was born.
