Vitality & Wellbeing, Vitality & Wellbeing
ProVida 3MEGA is a powerful Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acid combination of ALA from Flax Seed Oil, and EPA & DHA from NZ Hoki Liver Oil.
With an Omega 3 content typically around 40%, from both plant and marine sources, 3MEGA is the most complete Omega 3 supplement available for your dog's overall health, vitality and wellbeing.
Flax Seed Oil is one of the best natural plant sources of Omega 3, with high levels of Alpha Linoleic Acid (ALA), from cold-pressed, NZ grown linseed. By combining this with NZ Hoki Liver Oil, 3MEGA offers superior levels of EPA and DHA to assist with brain and vision function, as well as promoting skin, coat, joint, digestive, circulatory and immune health. All our Hoki Liver Oil is sourced from MSC certified fisheries in New Zealand.
Our 3MEGA oil is available in a range of sizes from 250ml to 5 Litre, and we recommend you order a maximum of 3 months supply based on your dog's weight to ensure freshness of the oil.
Delivery is included in the cost of the product and takes 2-5 working days (RD addresses can incur further delays). If delivery is to an RD address, please select this option when ordering. This will incur an extra $5 charge.
Adding just 1ml per 2kg of body weight to the everyday feed is recommended, although this can be increased over time if desired results are not seen.
Once opened, to maintain the quality and freshness of the oil, keep refrigerated and use within 3 months.
Q: Is Flax Seed Oil similar to Linseed Oil?
A: Yes, both Flax Seed Oil and Linseed Oil come from the linseed seed, it is just a difference in terminology…. Linseed Oil is the name given to industrial grade oil (the kind you find in hardware stores to stain wood) and Flax Seed Oil is the term used for food grade oil. Our oils meet food grade standards, hence it is termed Flax Seed Oil.
Q: What is unique about ProVida flax seed products?
A: The Canterbury Plains are offers optimal growing conditions for high quality raw material. We are proud to be based in Mid-Canterbury at the arable heart of New Zealand. Our flax seed products are all cold-pressed in small batches using the highest quality seed grown for us by local contracted farmers in our region. All flax seed products we offer are traceable back to their origin, and produced to human food grade standards using no chemicals, solvents or heat in the extraction process.
Q: I currently feed Hemp Seed Oil to my dog, what is the difference between Hemp Seed Oil and Flax Seed Oil?
A: Hemp Seed Oil provides high levels of Omega 6, some of which can be pro-inflammatory if fed in large quantities. Flax Seed Oil provides around 60% Omega 3, which is well documented to have anti-inflammatory properties. All animals require a healthy balance of both of these essential fatty acids, therefore Omega 3 rich Flax Seed Oil is very good in helping to maintain this balance.
Q: What is the best way of feeding the oil to my dog, and how much should I give them?
A: We suggest you simply pour the oil over their food. We supply plastic taps for our larger containers and the small containers have plastic pourers in the neck of the bottle. We recommend a dose of 1ml per 2kg of body weight per day for dogs and cats. Continuity is the key, so make sure you feed the oil every day!
