Top 5 reasons to try Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend
Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is a blend of organic seed oils that provide the Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3 and 6 needed for optimal health. They are called essential as our body’s cannot produce them and need to be included in our diet. Our western diets tend not to have much Omega 3 at all and what Omega 6 we have tends to be damaged by processing or exposure to heat, light or oxygen. For optimal health it is therefore important that we obtain a source of healthy, undamaged, unprocessed Omega oils. Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend contains twice as much Omega 3 as 6 to provide a greater quantity of this Essential fat whilst providing an adequate amount of Omega 6 for health.
2. ‘Foundation’ vs ‘supplement’ oil
Every day through our diet we typically ingest between 75 – 125 g of oil through such things as butters and spreads, cooking oils, processed foods, meats, seeds and nuts. For optimum health we need to ensure that this daily “foundation” of fats is as healthy and undamaged as possible. Some people choose to supplement with fish oils and whilst this is fine it is worth noting that this only provides between 1-5 g of oil per day. Udo’s Oil provides an opportunity to replace some of the damaged, highly processed fats with undamaged, unprocessed essential fats by mixing Udo’s Oil in our foods. In this way whatever we choose to supplement with we are ensuring that our “foundation” is as healthy as possible.
The ratio of Omega 3 to 6 is all important. If our diets have too much of one over the other then we can develop symptoms of Omega 3 or 6 deficiency. Ideally a ratio inside the body of around 1 to 1 is generally accepted as being optimal. Whilst the western diet generally has a higher proportion of Omega 6 than 3, both of these tend to be damaged through processing or cooking. By including Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend which has twice as much Omega 3 as 6 but still provides an adequate amount of healthy, undamaged Omega 6 you can ensure that the ratio inside your body is more like the ideal 1 to 1.
Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids are very delicate and susceptible to damage by exposure to heat, light or oxygen. Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is manufactured in a heat, light and air free environment and then bottled in dark glass, nitrogen flushed to keep oxygen out, packed in a box and kept in the fridge to provide you with the freshest and most nutritional Omega 3 and 6 oil blend possible.
5. Ease of use
Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend can easily be included in your daily diet. Pour over hot food (never cook with it!), blend it in a smoothie or soup, drizzle over salad or mix it with mashed potato. The only limit is your imagination. Read more about healthy smoothie recipes here.
