Product Description

Udo's Oil® High-Lignan 3·6·9 Blend DiagramWHAT IS UDO’S OIL® HIGH LIGNAN 3·6·9 BLEND? Our multiple award-winning Udo’s Oil® High Lignan 3·6·9 Blend is a mix of plant-based, unrefined, certified organic food oils. It provides people who care about health with a reliable, undamaged source of polyunsaturated omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (or EFAs) and monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids, which are all excellent sources of energy, fat-soluble vitamins and other key nutrients, and are important components of all membranes of the trillions of cells in the body. For extra health support, we added antioxidant-rich lignans from flax.

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS AND WHAT DO THEY DO? EFAs are responsible for vital biological functions such as cell growth and division, cell-to-cell communication, gene expression, eicosanoid hormone production, and many more.(1,2) The body can make almost all the fatty acids it needs from other nutrients but lacks the enzymes required to synthesize either omega-3 or omega-6 essential fatty acids and therefore must obtain them directly from the diet, hence the name ‘essential’.(3)

WHY ARE CAREFULLY MADE EFAS IMPORTANT FOR HEALTH? Some of the greatest health concerns facing the Western diet today are the prevalence of omega-3 deficiency (99% of the population), the overabundance of industrial, highly-refined vegetable oils (mostly omega-6) in our food supply, and the toxic damage from processing and food preparation to which both these sensitive polyunsaturated oils are commonly subjected.(1,3,4)

WHAT MAKES UDO’S OIL® HIGH LIGNAN 3·6·9 BLEND SO SPECIAL? Udo’s pioneering work in the field of ‘good fats’ started in the 1980s. To make this oil blend ‘with health in mind’, we designed special machinery that excludes light, oxygen, and heat, the three factors that turn healthy EFA-rich oils into unhealthy, toxic ones.(4,5,6) This is also why you will always find Udo’s Oil® High Lignan 3·6·9 Blend in a brown glass bottle, in a protective box, in the cooler of the supplement or produce section of your local natural foods store or supermarket. Instead of packaging our fresh, carefully made oils in plastic — which comes with health concerns — we chose to package Udo’s Oil® High Lignan 3·6·9 Blend in glass. And, because we understand the critical role a balanced ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 plays in health, we blended Udo’s Oil with a ratio of 2:1. No other company makes oils with the same level of care we do.

The cloudy layer in the oil is unique to this blend. To obtain its benefits, shake bottle gently before each use. Take 1 tablespoon or more per day, mixed into foods, and over the course of the day (up to 1 tablespoon per 50 pounds of body weight per day). For best results, substitute other sources of dietary fat with Udo’s Oil. Most common uses: added to smoothies, steamed vegetables, salad dressings, dips, pestos, pastas, yogurt, grains, and soups.

    :

    I love this oil. As a triathlete, who loves to eat, I am conscious of what I put in my body, particularly when it comes to fats. It’s been easy to integrate this oil into my daily routine – as a salad dressing and in post-workout/race recovery smoothies. Thank you!

The Bottom Line

More health problems come from damaged oils than any other part of nutrition. Fresh oils — especially the polyunsaturated omega-3 and omega-6 oils — are perishable, just like other healthful but perishable fresh foods. They are also essential nutrients. We created Udo’s Oil® High Lignan 3·6·9 Blend to provide a complete ‘food oil foundation’ from which to build a healthy body, giving you everything you need from good fats and oils — including the added benefit of antioxidant-rich lignans — and none of the bad ones you should avoid.
