Organic Omega Blend Oil (2:1:1)
Organic Omega Blend Oil is an organic oil blend containing a 2:1:1 ratio in favor of Omega 3:6:9 essential fatty acids. This ratio is considered, in the opinion of most nutritional experts, to be the ideal ratio for the modern diet. This is achieved by carefully selecting and blending together the appropriate amounts of certified organic flax seed oil : one of the richest vegetarian sources of omega-3, and organic sesame seed oil : full of non GMO omega-6 and omega-9, antioxidants and phytosterols. Our organic omega blend oil is cold pressed which means that the nutrients inherent in the seed are retained throughout processing. Our organic omega blend oil can be added to cold or warmed foods. Do not overheat or use oil for frying, as this will damage the fragile fatty acids.
Health and Nutrition
Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids. That is, they are vital for our health, but the human body cannot make them on its own and so we have to get them from our food. Of all the fatty acids, omega-3s are the most important. They reduce inflammation in the body and can help lower the risk of chronic degenerative diseases that plague the population—heart disease, high cholesterol, arthritis, dementia, and even certain types of cancer.
Omega-6 fatty acids, like omega-3s, are essential fatty acids that can only be provided to us through food and supplements. Omega-6 fatty acids play a critical role in brain function. They also help stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and maintain the reproductive system.
Unlike the 3s and 6s, omega 9 fatty acids are not considered essential fatty acids because our bodies can make omega-9s in small amounts. Omega-9s are used by the body when the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are not readily present. Primarily, omega-9 has a positive health effect on the lowering of cholesterol levels, reducing of insulin resistance, and boosting the immune system. However, the body will eventually suffer from having a large amount of omega-9s if there is lack of the proper amount of omega-3s.
