Udo's Choice The Father of Flax Oil

By Brad Houston - Message him  Flag 
Updated Aug. 16, 2010, about 9 years ago

Author of the book, Fats That Heal Fats That Kill, Dr. Udo Erasmus is an international authority on fats, oils, cholesterol and human health. After receiving his B.Sc. in Honors Zoology from the University of British Columbia and completing his graduate studies in Biochemistry and Genetics, Udo Erasmus turned his attention to nutrition. Several years of research culminated in the publishing of his work and earned him a PhD in nutrition.

Known as the father of "Organic, Unrefined Flax Oil" & Udo's Choice Oil Blend: Udo Erasmus, Ph.D., introduced the importance of essential fats (EFA's) derived from organic flax seeds to the world. He pioneered methods for producing unrefined oils made with health in mind which are still used today by manufacturers of flax and other oils.

Starting in the mid-1980's, Udo popularized the use of flax oil through an exhaustive itinerary of public lectures, which eventually led to TV and radio interviews. His groundbreaking book, Fats that Heal Fats That Kill, has become the industry's bible on fats. Later he developed an oil blend which is an improvement on flax oil, offering a better ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6.

Udo's Choice & Health

It is becoming increasingly difficult to choose from the growing number of Omega-3 sources which will deliver the greatest health benefits. However, we can give you a host of good reasons why Udos Choice is a favorite Omega oil supplement. No other source of omega 3 EFAs can match the quality and integrity of Udos Choice Ultimate Oil Blend. Heres why:

The Foundation Fats

All of our diets contain fats - the typical daily intake of fats is between 75 and 125 grams. They are ingested into our bodies through the foods that we eat and the cooking oils that we use. But they are not always healthy and are often damaged through high levels of processing and the heat from cooking (killing many of the good nutrients contained in the fats/oils).

These fats form the base of the body's fat intake - what we call the "Foundation" fats. Some people choose to supplement these with Fish Oils but typically this adds just 1-5 grams of fat per day. So for optimum health we need to ensure our foundation fats are as healthy as possible.

Two of the most important healthy fats the body should be getting as part of its foundation are undamaged Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) and Linoleic Acid (LA). These cannot be produced by the body so are termed Essential. Other Fatty Acids like those found in fish oils (DHA and EPA) are not essential as the body is able to produce these if it has enough of the Essential Fatty Acids ALA and LA.

When Dr Udo Erasmus developed his unique oil blend he did so ensuring that it was rich in the 2 EFA's - ALA and LA - as well as including many other ingredients bringing benefits to the body's functioning.

All Omega Seed Oils are not the same:

Starting with superior raw materials is vital, and Udos Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is produced using the finest certified organic-grown ingredients. First, the seeds are cold pressed in a light and oxygen-free environment to preserve the integrity of the delicate omega-3 and 6 molecules and so ensure superior quality. The oil is refrigerated all the way from pressing and blending right through to point of sale, and therefore maintains its full integrity and its fresh nutty taste.
Udos Choice bottles are nitrogen-flushed to eliminate any possibility of oxidation so preserving freshness. Dark amber glass and an outer box eliminate harmful UV light.
The formulation is free of fish oils due to the rising levels of toxic content within fish products. That makes it a vegetarian & vegan product as well.
The combination of constituent oils and minor ingredients often lacking in other oils has been carefully developed over many years by Dr. Udo Erasmus to achieve maximum assimilation and efficacy.
Udos Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is guaranteed gluten-free and cholesterol-free.

The final proof is in the glowing responses we receive from users each one describing improved aspects of health since starting to take Udos Choice Ultimate Oil Blend.

"I discovered Udo's Oil and the other products a few years ago. My digestion, my skin and hair have improved drammatically, as result I feel stronger and with more energy. I would recommend this Oil to anyone as part of their daily diet. This product is far ahead than many conventional products available on the market !"

According to Dr. Erasmus, since 1900, Omega 6 consumption has increased by about 2 times the previous levels, primarily because of increased use of certain vegetable oils in food preparation, while Omega 3s are now only 1/6 of previous levels. This means that we get too much Omega 6 and too little Omega 3 fatty acids.

Ultimately, imbalances and deficiencies in essential fatty acids are, according to Dr. Erasmus, the cause, a trigger, or a contributing factor to many diseases and conditions, and addressing those deficiencies through proper foods, or use of healthy oils, can have huge implications for health.

According to Dr. Erasmus, some benefits of proper essential fatty acid intake and balance include:

Dr. Erasmus did not stop at fatty acids, he also saw the need to address other essential components of a healthy diet. In addition to the common macronutrients, Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fat, Udo's work with digestive health highlighted 3 other areas that could benefit people:

Udo's Choice Probiotics

Organically grown food was always an important part of the human diet, and with it came bacteria found in the ground. These beneficial bacteria, or Probiotics, were a regular component of our daily diet, and contributed to the vast ecosystem in our gut that ensure we maintain a healthy gut and therefore good health. Noticing that today's foods are heavily "sanitised", Udo realised the benefits that re-introducing these beneficial bacteria to our diet would have, and developed the Udo's Choice Probiotics.

Udo's Choice Beyond Greens

A good diet of green foods and vegetables brings a host of benefits from the micronutrients found in it. But what about variation? Today we eat scarcely more than 20-30 different food types, compared to several hundred during our evolution. To ensure our diets include a wide variety of compounds often missing from our modern diets that bring a new vitality to life, Udo created Udo's Choice Beyond Greens.

Udo's Choice Ultimate Digestive Enzyme Blend

Todays diets often lack enzyme-containing raw foods and modern food processing and cooking techniques destroy nearly 100% of these enzymes. This puts a burden on the digestive system leading to incomplete digestion, which can lead to poor nutrient absorption. By improving our enzyme intake, Udo realised we can directly improve our nutrient uptake, so he developed Udo's Choice Ultimate Digestive Enzyme Blend
