Udo’s for Sports
Whilst Udo’s Oil has long been known for it’s many general health benefits, it has more recently become popular amongst sports men and women to assist them in reaching their full sporting potential.
Good nutrition plays a key role in any sporting field and getting the right “foundation” fats within the body will serve you well in achieving your nutritional goals. Whilst many people supplement their diet with fish oils it is important to remember that such supplements are precisely that – supplements, and provide only about 1 – 5 grams of fat per day. Our total daily intake of fat is often between 75 and 125 grams. It is therefore more important to assess the make up of these “foundation” fats. For optimum cellular performance it is important to ensure that the body gets enough Essential Fatty Acids (the DPA and EPA in Fish Oils are not Essential Fatty Acids), and in the right proportion.
Including Udos Choice Ultimate Oil Blend in your diet plan provides your body with these Essential Fatty Acids in the right proportion (2:1 Omega 3 Alpha-Linolenic Acid : Omega 6 Linoleic Acid).

What are Essential Fats?
Scientists have given essential fats their name because the body must have them to survive, but cannot synthesise them from any other substance we eat so a direct food source is required. Hence the name essential.
There are many kinds of fats but only two kinds of essential fats, omega 3 and omega 6, both of which are unsaturated fats. Each EFA is turned into several derivatives by the body, provided enough undamaged omega 3 and omega 6 is supplied in the right ratio. All other fats, such as omega 9 (monounsaturated), omega 7 and saturated fat are non-essential as the body can produce them from sugars and starches.
“We need more of each essential fatty acid every day than any other essential nutrient. They are major nutrients that we use in tablespoon, not milligram, amounts.” Dr Udo Erasmus – the worlds leading expert on dietary fats.
Where do Essential Fats come from?
Omega 3 essential fatty acids come from flaxseeds and green leafy vegetables and Omega 6 essential fatty acids are found in seeds and nuts including sesame and sunflower seeds.
