Udo’s Choice 3.6.9 Oil Blend is a carefully blended combination of essential fatty acids (EFA), giving a balanced and nutritional combination of Omega 3, 6 and 9 EFA’s. . These fatty acids are essential, as our body is not able to make them and we need to obtain them from dietary sources. Unfortunately in our day and age, we obtain way to many Omega 6 EFA’s from our diet and very few Omega 3 EFA’s; thus disrupting the natural balance. Dr Udo Erasmus, one of the world’s leading experts on dietary fats, developed UDO’s Choice. The carefully balanced blend of unrefined organic seed oils are sourced from plant’s making UDO’s an excellent choice for vegetarians and vegans who can't eat fish. The Ultimate Oil Blend is pressed and filtered in a low heat, light and oxygen free environment to ensure stability of the EFA’s and optimum nutritional values and freshness. The oil is then packaged in amber bottles, that have the oxygen eliminated from them, prior to being packaged in a cardboard box, dated and kept in refrigerated storage. UDO’s Ultimate Choice Oil Blend has a pleasant, smooth nutty taste, almost like butter, this makes it incredibly easy to take. It contains oils from fresh, certified organic flax, sesame, sunflower and evening primrose seeds as well as oils from rice and oat germ, providing 'minor' ingredients with major health benefits. This oil blend has added non-GMO soy lecithin, which improves oil digestion and provides the building materials for healthy cell membranes. Udo’s Oil™ 3•6•9 Blend also contains medium chain triglycerides, which are easy to digest and assimilate and can be used directly by our cells as a source of energy without increasing fat deposits.
