What are Essential Fatty Acids? The two EFAs our body needs are called:
There are about 44 nutrients we must have to fuel our bodies to live; 20 minerals, 13 vitamins, 8 amino acids, and 2 Essential Fatty Acids, EFAs. These fats are called ‘Essential’ because we absolutely need them for life and the body cannot produce them – we have to take EFAs in through our food. Every cell in the body must have the correct balance of EFAs daily to function properly.

100% natural & fresh
Udo Erasmus discovered how vitally important it is to consume EFAs in their naturally-occurring undamaged form. They are extremely sensitive and easily damaged by exposure to light, air (oxygen) and heat.
Udo’s Choice® Ultimate Oil Blend begins with organically grown seeds. To ensure freshness, they are cold pressed in the absence of light, heat and oxygen. The oil is then bottled in amber nitrogen flushed glass bottles so no oxygen is left. You will always find Udo’s Choice® Ultimate Oil Blend in the fridge rather than on shelf to ensure maximum freshness.
1-3 dessertspoons* daily, with meals will give you optimum beneft. Shake gently before use; any cloudiness is natural. Our capsules are also a convenient alternative for those on the move or going on holidays.
Simply drizzle on breakfast cereals, in smoothies or yogurts and over rice, potatoes, pasta or veg**. It’s fabulous in salad dressings too.
* As a guideline take one dessertspoon for every 50 lbs (25kg) of bodyweight. But everyone is different and many users experience great results taking less than the guideline amount.
** Delicious when added to warm food, but don’t cook with it as this destroys the delicate EFAs.
