Every cell, tissue, gland and organ is dependent upon the presence of Essential Fatty Acids or EFAs. Your body needs these foundational fats, but cannot make them on its own. They must be obtained through dietary sources. Unfortunately, the modern Western diet is often quite deficient in omega-3 EFAs.
EFAs manufacture and repair cell membranes, enabling the cells to properly assimilate nutrients from our foods and efficiently expel toxins and waste products. A deficiency, or even an imbalance, of EFAs can be linked to a decline in the optimal functioning of the body’s natural processes.
Udo’s Oil™ 3·6·9 Blend supplies omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs in a 2:1 ratio. It is a special formulation of natural, unrefined oils from fresh, certified organic flax, sunflower, sesame and evening primrose seeds as well as oils from coconut, rice and bran.
This formula is the result of many years of scientific study by world-renowned nutrition expert Udo Erasmus, author of the best-selling book, Fats That Heal Fats That Kill. Udo’s research over the years indicates that the best results come consistently from oils blended to be richer in omega-3 than omega-6, in a 2:1 ratio. Udo’s oil contains the ideal ratio, while fish oils and pure flax oils do not.
Why you need a 2:1 ratio: The key to health from fats lies in ingesting the essential ones in the proper ratio. This isn’t usually achieved because the average Western diet is much too high in omega-6 and dangerously low in omega-3.
Omega-3 ALA (alpha linolenic acid) and omega-6 LA (linoleic acid) are Essential Fatty Acids the body requires for maintaining good health.* Flax seed oil is the richest known source of omega-3 ALA.
Udo’s Oil™ 3-6-9 Blend is made with health in mind, unlike supermarket cooking oils, which are highly processed for long shelf life. All ingredients in Udo’s oils are grown and processed without chemicals. For optimum freshness, these products are sealed in non-reactive recyclable amber glass bottles to avoid damage from heat and light.
