Omega-3 fatty acids are stored in your dog’s cellular and organelle membranes and are essential for cell fluidity, which provides optimal health for both eggs and sperm. Female dogs can benefit from a reproductive tract that is rich in non-inflammatory fats such as omega-3s. Omega-3 fatty acids can also have a beneficial impact on the entire uterus. Our three canine wellness formulas are good sources of Omega-3 fatty acids for your dog in addition to Platinum DHA/EPA Oil, a rich, natural source of vegetarian Omega-3 fatty acids.
Semen quality plays a major role in fertility and reproduction and depends on the dietary intake and incorporation of omega-3 fatty acids into the sperm plasma membrane. Omega-3 fatty acids, which help increase membrane fluidity, are believed to aid in motility and fusion and help maintain membrane integrity and protect against cellular damage.
Supplementing with a flax-based source of omega-3 fatty acids can help regulate inflammatory reactions and reduce the release of the inflammatory cytokine, IL-1, which adversely affects testosterone production. This is a possible route for improving fertility in males.
Supplementation can help maintain a healthy sperm count as well as the motility of available sperm.
Supplementation can play a significant role in conception, pregnancy maintenance and fetal development.
