A pilot observational case study was carried out among forty-nine athletes (36 competitive strength athletes and 13 weight training/endurance athletes) who ingested one tablespoon of Udo’s Oil™ 3•6•9 Blend per 50 pounds of body weight daily. Athletic performance, health and well-being were assessed along with measurements of strength and endurance, and changes in body composition.
Athletes reported increased explosive power, strength, endurance and energy along with improvements in recovery, joint function and body composition while using this seed-based essential fatty acid formula. The conclusive findings of this study will be available here following publication.
Omega Fatty Acids
Every cell, tissue, gland and organ is dependent upon the presence of EFAs (essential fatty acids). They are the main structural component of every cell membrane, are necessary for cell growth and division, and regulate vital cell activity.

Why you need a 2:1 Ratio
The key to health from fats lies in taking the essential ones in the proper ratio. This isn’t usually achieved because the average western diet is too high in omega-6 and dangerously low in Omega-3. Udo’s research indicates the best results come consistently from plant oils blended to be richer in omega -3 than omega -6, and in a 2:1 ratio. Udo’s Oil Blends contain the proper 2:1 ratio; fish and flax oils do not.
