      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Udo's Choice Certified Organic Ultimate Oil Blend (Phew), is a blend of organic unrefined oils and other ingredients. The oil was created by Udo Erasmus, when he was ill and he has perfected the blend to give us just the right amount of Omega 3 Omega 6 oils. These fats are good for the body, and don't make you fat!! Scientific Stuff ------------------- Ingredients - Flax seed oil, sunflower seed all, sesame seed oil, Medium chain triglycerides from coconut oil, evening primrose oil, soy lecithin, rice brand and rice germs oils, oat bran and oat germ oils, rosemary extract, tocotrienol. The oils in the blend supply a range of fatty acids including a 2:1:1 ration of Omega 3, 6 and 9. Nutritional Information - (per 30ml) Energy 270 Kcal, Protein 0.4g, carbohydrates 0g, Fat 29g, saturated fats 3.7g, polyunsaturates 19.4g, monosaturates 5.9g. The oil comes in a 500ml bottle. The bottle is dark coloured, to prevent the light getting to the oils, and is also boxed. You will find it at some of the more independent Health Food Shops, or alternatively you can contact the UK distributor who is: Savant Distribution Ltd Quarry House Clayton Wood Close Leeds Ls16 6QE Tel 08450 60 60 70 Email info@savant-health.com www.savant-health.com A 500 ml bottle retails for about £16. Health Benefits ------------------- Most of us are deficient in Essential Fatty Acids, especially Omega 3. 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 food. Because these Fats do not have a long shelf life, they have been removed from many foods. Essential Fatty Acids are excellent in increasing our metabolic rates and energy levels, meaning we will burn more calories and subsequently lose weight. They also help the kidneys get rid of any water which the body is retaining. They are also good for skin and nails as well as nourishing us from within. Women in particular should ensure that they are getting enough Essential Fats in their diet, and Omega 3 can improve moods, postnatal depression, and fybromyalgia. Diets which are high in Essential Fatty acids have shown to be excellent in preventing degenerative diseases e.g the Inuit populations who survive on blubber, fat and fish. Most of us however, dot have a diet quite like that! Uses of Udos Oil ---------------- It is recommended that you take about one tablespoon per 50 lb of body weight per day. You can take up to 10 tablespoons can be used for losing weight, and for healing, including conditions caused by getting too little essential fats in the diet. I learned about this oil on my recent Ayurvedic retreat, and they recommended I took about 60 mls of oil per day. Based on this, a bottle will last me about eight ? nine days, and it seems to work out quite expensive, however this is a superfood, and it is supplying about 50% of calories for the day. The oil should not be used to fry with or heated in any way, as this destroys the essential fat acids. I tend to take my oil in a salad dressing, or alternatively just poured directly onto steamed vegetables, which can be served with a grain such as Quinoa, Wild Rice or Bulgar Wheat, and my favourite is with a Red Pepper Sauce. Helen's Salad Dressing ---------------------------- 6 dessert spoons of Udo's oil 1 dessert spoon of cider vinegar 1 dessert spoon of mustard 1 dessert spoon of honey Approximately 1 dessert spoon of fresh basil, shredded Spoonful of ground almonds Salt and pepper to taste Simply mix all the ingredients together and blend with an electric blender for a few seconds, then transfer to a jug for serving. You can play around with the ingredients a bit, to get it exactly to your taste. I must admit I am not a big salad fan, but this dressing has completely transformed my attitude towards salads. It is sooooo tasty, and I also dress the salad with ground nuts or seeds for added texture and taste. Spaghetti with Pesto ------------------------ 14 oz whole wheat spaghetti ¼ cup raw cashews Freshly shaved Asiago or Parmesan Fresh basil for garnish ½ cup pine nuts 3lbs fresh basil leaves ¼ cup chopped garlic 1 cup Udo's oil 1 tbsp sea salt ¼ cup parmesan cheese grated. To make pesto, heat a pan and gently warm the pine nuts on a low heat. Wash and dry the basil then place in a food processor with garlic and pine nuts. Blend and slowly add the oil until it becomes a thick creamy sauce. Add seasoning and blend again, then add grated parmesan, but do not blend this. Cook pasta, drain, rinse and toss with ½ cup pesto and cashews. Do not heat the pesto sauce, the pasta will warm it. Place pasta onto plates and spring shaved asiago over the top. Garnish with fresh basil. -------------------------------------------- Try it and see what you think! I have been using Udo's oil for about a month now, and I have noticeably more energy, as well as improved and much more supple skin. You can even buy a special blend for pets, to keep them in optimum help, However hubby put his foot down, as he thought the cats were healthy enough!
