Essential Fatty Acids: Are You Oiling the Machine?
Posted Dec 06 2012 1:17pm
Strength, stamina, and recovery. What food comes to mind? Oil? Doubtful. Yet athletes around the world have experienced greater strength, improved stamina and faster recovery using just that.
Just as cars and other high performance machines need oil to run, so do our bodies. The key to health from fats lies in taking the essential ones* in the proper ratio. Studies have shown that Omega Fatty Acids return the best results when taken in the ideal ratio of 2:1 omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. Udo’s Oil is the perfect example of this.
In the Danish Athlete Study, daily use of Udo’s Oil measured body composition, skin condition, energy, stamina, sleep, concentration, and general health and well being. Athletes took 1 Tbsp per 50 lbs of body weight per day. Reported benefits over 8 weeks were as follows:
20% Decreased body fat
23% Improved skin condition
53% More energy and stamina
32% Improved sleep
30% Improved concentration
66% Improvements in general health and well-being
In the Robert Universe Elite Athlete Case Study, athletes reported increased explosive power, strength, endurance and energy along with improvements in recovery, joint function and body composition while using Udo’s seed-based essential fatty acid formula.
