There are a lot of people who want to improve their health and wellness, but are realizing they cannot always get clean and nutrient dense foods because many of our foods are denatured by the time we eat them. In many cases, it’s very difficult to consume the proper nutrition that our bodies need and this is when adding nutritional supplements is an excellent solution.
I have been using Udos Oil for 5 years now and have seen and felt the benefits. I was preparing for my first bodybuilding contest and was told it would aid in fat loss, as well as helping with the leathery skin that is common when pre-contest dieting. I began using it and it is now a regular part of my diet both on-season and off-season. I average 8 tablespoons a day!
Omega fats are great for the body both inside and out. It can have positive effects in your skin, hair and nails. These fats are found in several food sources, but not in the same combination you will find in products like the Udos Oil mixed blend. This blend is balanced out to a ratio of 3-6-9 that has been found to be most beneficial.
You will notice that your skin will be more hydrated and smoother with less wrinkles and your nails and hair will be healthier when using this nutritional supplement. Bodybuilders use Udos Oil to lose body fat during their contest dieting. I personally like to add the oil to my salads, fish, protein shakes and on my veggies. It is not recommended that you cook with this oil or you will breakdown the nutrients it contains. It also must be kept cold (placed in refrigerator). The oil is mainly composed of flaxseed oil, pumpkin seed oil and sesame oil. Another selling point for me was that it is a vegan product. EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) should be a part of everyone’s diet along with lean protein and clean carbs!

Udos Oil – Health Benefits
Most of us are deficient in EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids), especially Omega 3 fatty acids. There has been a major shift in our dietary habits over the last 150 years, and the main reason we are lacking in these essential fats is due to the tendency to rely on processed foods. Because these fats do not have a long shelf life, they need to be removed from many foods.
EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) are excellent for increasing our metabolic rate and energy levels which means we will burn more calories and lose weight. They also help the kidneys get rid of any water which the body is retaining.
They are also very good for the skin and nails. Women, in particular, should ensure that they are getting enough EFAs in their diet since they can improve mood, postnatal depression, and fibromyalgia.
Diets that are high in EFAs have been shown to be excellent in preventing degenerative diseases such as the Inuit populations who survive on blubber, fat and fish. Most of us however, don’t have a diet quite like that!
