Udo's Oil High Lignan 3•6•9 Blend contains the ideal balance of Omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (2:1) for people who want one product that gives them all of the good fats they need, without any of the bad fats they should avoid. Every cell, tissue, gland and organ is dependent upon the presence of essential fatty acids. They are the main structural component of cell membranes and are necessary for cell growth and division. Lignans exhibit antioxidant properties and can be used as part of a healthy diet to help maintain the body's normal hormone levels and support the immune system.
Udo's Oil is formulated by Udo Erasmus, PhD, an internationally acclaimed authority on the subject of essential fatty acids and author of the groundbreaking book Fats That Heal Fats That Kill. Udo's oil blend is fresh-pressed in a state-of-the-art low heat, light and oxygen-free environment and packaged in an environmentally friendly glass bottle. Udo's Oil has a pleasant, nutty, buttery taste and can be added unheated to foods such as cereal, salad, pasta or stir fried vegetables, and even poured over dessert.
Suggested Use: The cloudy layer in the oil is unique to this blend. To obtain its benefits, shake bottle before each use (lignans may settle and should be stirred often). Take 1 Tbsp or more a day with meals (up to 1 Tbsp per 50 lbs of body weight per day). For best results, substitute other sources of dietary fat with Udo's Oil. FOR OPTIMUM FRESHNESS, KEEP REFRIGERATED. Do not heat or use for frying. Once opened, use within 2 months. Udo's Oil can be frozen to maintain freshness for longer periods.
Serving Suggestions: You can easily supply your body with the essential fatty acids it needs by incorporating Udo's Oil High Lignan 3•6•9 Blend into your meals.
