Product Description

WHAT IS UDO’S OIL® DHA 3·6·9 BLEND? Our multiple award-winning Udo’s Oil® DHA 3·6·9 Blend is a mix of plant-based, unrefined, 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 DHA omega-3 from algae.

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® DHA 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.(4-6) This is also why you will always find Udo’s Oil 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 package Udo’s Oil® DHA 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. Never use for high-heat cooking, including frying. Add Udo’s Oil to hot foods only after the food has been removed from the heat source and transferred to a serving dish.


Fresh omega oils are perishable, just like other healthful but perishable foods. Opened or unopened, always keep refrigerated and use within 2 months after opening. Udo’s Oil can be stored in the freezer to maintain freshness for longer periods.

    I’ve been taking Udo’s Oil for almost 10 years now. Still my favorite oil! Recently, I was advised by a salesperson at Wholefoods to buy the DHA version because I am now 4 months pregnant :). I feel I am getting all the same benefits that I was getting on the original blend. I was just curious to know what your thoughts were about the DHA version of Udo’s Oil vs. the original blend. Want to be sure the ‘bun in my oven’ is getting the right nourishment. Thank you for your help!

    • Udo’s Choice Support

      Hi Mia,

      Firstly, congratulations – what an exciting time! With regard to using the Udo’s Oil DHA version versus the Udo’s Oil original formula, we typically recommend the DHA version under the following circumstances:

      1. Pregnant and lactating women;
      2. Children under the age of 5;
      3. 50+ crowd (research shows that the brain shrinks as we age so supplementing brain-friendly fats can be helpful);
      4. Anyone who is looking for more support for cognitive function or eye health;
      5. Anyone who feels that they may need a boost of DHA in their diet.

      In addition, our plant-based DHA is the all-around safest source of DHA for pregnant women because:

      1. Plant-based DHA is lower on the food chain and grown in tanks free of toxins;
      2. Not damaged by processing (many fish oils on the market have been found to be damaged due to processing ie. gone bad, inflammatory);
      3. We don’t use plastics to package our oils: polyunsaturated oils are sensitive, so putting the oil in glass guarantees there will be no leeching from the plastics. Glass is an inert material. It’s also better for the environment.

      We formulated, pressed, and packaged Udo’s Oil DHA the way we did for a reason: it’s our best offering for a healthy oil with nothing questionable about it.

      Hope this helps!

    Udos is a excellent product. I have been using the Udos Oil for many years. Very high quality product and made with care.

  3. Sammy Conway

    LOVE this stuff! My skin thanks me 😉

  4. Jared

    I first learned about Udo’s Oil at a Tony Robbins’ event last year. I have to say Udo’s Oil has been extremely helpful to me as I started switching over to a vegetarian diet. There aren’t many products that Tony endorses. He has a very high standard. After hearing about it, I decided to give it a try.

    I absolutely love this stuff!

    To be honest, I was skeptical at first because I thought it would taste really bad. Fortunately, I actually really enjoy the taste! I use the oil on just about everything from salads, a bit on an avocado, and almost everything else that I’m eating. It’s surprisingly delightful!

    And, as a triathlete, there is a real difference from when I’m using Udo’s Oil to when I’m not. I noticed this when I was using Udo’s Oil on a regular basis, took a break from it (I ran out and couldn’t get my lazy butt back to the store), and then went back to it. I went back to it after I heard a podcast with Udo speaking about Udo’s Oil. I picked up some more and am feeling noticeably better. Better workouts and better recovery times.

    I highly recommend it! This is one of the easiest and most affordable options as a great add-on to any diet.

  5. Jerry L.

    Love this product! Recommended by one of the best peak performance coaches in the world, Tony Robbins.

  6. Krystal P.

    I love putting Udo’s Oils on my salads. I actually don’t like using salad dressing because I love the taste of lettuce so much. So a way to up my fats, I put a big blob of oil and the flavour is so sweet and mild and works well with my tastes. I also notice a big lift in my brain function when taking the oil regularly. I appreciate knowing I’m giving my body what it needs with his oils.

  7. Zachary Miller

    I found my new favorite way to get my omega’s! I put a tablespoon on my cereal every morning. It tastes fine and has had a great effect on my dry skin!

    I’ve tried other brands but this is my fav.

  8. Natalia

    I love the way it tastes! Easy to consume.

  9. Lesley

    Easy to consume, no fishy taste or burps and so darn healthy!

  10. K. Tavano

    My son and I have been using Udo’s DHA 3-6-9 with incredible results. He is much calmer and more focused and has overall better behavior since using it. His eczema, which is genetic, has also disappeared. I am glad I found an alternative to the fish oil because DHA is very important, especially for my toddler… but I wanted to spare the fish their livers! As well as avoid the risk of ocean-borne contaminants sometimes found in fish oils.

  11. Jeremy Griswold

    I use this everyday. I was first introduced to this a year ago while doing a health seminar. We used it as part of a fasting/cleansing program to give the body essential nutrients and to cut down hunger and cravings. It worked superbly and to me tastes great. Adding the right fats into your diet was a paradigm shift for me that has helped transform my life. I’m grateful for Udo’s oil. I use it on salads, in smoothies, on veggies, and straight from the bottle. I can’t say enough positive things about this product line and about Udo!

  12. Julie D

    My daughter, age 3, likes 1 tsp. two or three times a day in her sport cup with milk or juice. Her hair is shiny. Her skin is smooth and never dry. And she’s a smart little pickle too! DHA is great for the brain and nervous system.

  13. Yvonne Allen

    Brought this product a month ago and I’m so glad! Use it to enhance my brain function and it works.

  14. JP Simon

    I like the fact that the DHA comes from algae. I don’t like animal sourced DHA. This is good poured into smoothies, over steamed veggies or anything else. I try to keep this all the time. Great oil!

  15. Timothy

    Highly recommended! I purchased this as it was recommended to me to use by my physiotherapist. It definitely gives me more energy!

  16. Shannon Tam

    The best oil mix in the world. The only one I know with plant sourced DHA. Great for a vegan and sports lifestyle. Excellent product…thank you Udo!

  17. Nadine Burwash

    I use 3 6 9 everyday in my smoothie. My skin has never looked so good. The product is amazing. I am docking 1 star for the bottle, it is too fat for an average female to handle with one hand, and pour into a tablespoon. It is also too heavy and when you pour the oil out it drips on the side of the bottle wasting precious oil. The company should rethink the shape and definitely sell a pump with the bottle.

  18. Omera

    This product is amazing! I have used it in the past and I absolutely love it. The taste does take some getting used to, but for all the benefits that it provides that’s a sacrifice to make. Will definitely order again!

  19. Michelle Lind

    Awesome product!

  20. Shannon

    Fantastic on salads, and mixed into things like morning oatmeal. Tastes light and nutty. My skin always seems to feel much more soft when I have a tablespoon of this a day. Great way to get in balanced fats if you’re on a plant based diet, and you don’t want to eat fish or take fish oil.

  21. Erin Legros

    This is a hidden secret of brain and nervous system health! You literally feel it’s effects as soon as it enters your body!

  22. Katherine A. Scahill

    Food is medicine!! This oil is a treasure!! A wonderful way to get vegan DHA in your body!! Even a small amount affected me in a wonderful way!! I am so grateful for this as it really alleviates my ADHD issues!!

  23. Gretchen

    This product is amazing. It helps so much w muscle and joint health. It helps w exercise recovery and overall flexibility. It also helps with digestive support.

  24. Cat

    This has effectively helped to raise my HDL cholesterol and put me in a safer category for cardiovascular health. Thank you. I plan to keep using this.

  25. PL

    I can’t stand the taste (and after taste, and burp) of fish oil. This one give me all the omega-3 I need with plant base (I am not vegetarian) which minimize the heavy metal risk.

  26. Jay Rice

    Udo’s Oil is the Gold Standard in vegetarian Omega fatty acids. Dr. Udo Erasmus, PhD literally wrote the book on fatty acids more than 20 years ago and this is his formulation which has stood the test of time and has the exact balance your body needs. I’ve taken this for more than 10 years and it helps my joints feel better and reduces brain fog. Some don’t like the taste but I enjoy it – kind of buttery oil flavor as you might find in a jar of natural peanut butter. This is the oil to get for athletes or anyone looking for benefits from Omegas – which is basically everyone since very cell, tissue, and gland in your body requires fatty acids.
    No, Udo’s didn’t sponsor my review – just love the product and I think you will, too.

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 DHA 3·6·9 Blend to provide a complete ‘food oil foundation’ from which to build a healthy body, giving you all the good fats and oils you need — including added preformed DHA — and none of the bad ones you should avoid.
