WHAT IS UDO`S CHOICE DHA 3·6·9 BLEND? Our multiple award-winning Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend is a mix of plant-based, unrefined, certified organic food oils. It provides people who care about health with a reliable, undamaged source of polyunsaturated omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (or EFAs) and monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids, which are all excellent sources of energy, fat-soluble vitamins and other key nutrients, and are important components of all membranes of the trillions of cells in the body. For extra health support, we added DHA omega-3s from algae.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS AND WHAT DO THEY DO? EFAs are responsible for vital biological functions such as cell growth and division, cell-to-cell communication, gene expression, eicosanoid hormone production, and many more. The body can make almost all the fatty acids it needs from other nutrients but lacks the enzymes required to synthesize either omega-3 or omega-6 essential fatty acids and therefore must obtain them directly from the diet.
WHY ARE CAREFULLY MADE EFAS IMPORTANT FOR HEALTH? Some of the greatest health concerns facing the Western diet today are the prevalence of omega-3 deficiency (99% of the population), the overabundance of industrial vegetable oils (mostly omega-6) in our food supply, and the toxic damage from processing and food preparation to which both these sensitive polyunsaturated oils are commonly subjected.
WHAT MAKES UDO`S OIL DHA 3·6·9 BLEND SO SPECIAL? Our pioneering work in the field of ‘good fats’ started in the 1980s. To make this oil blend ‘with health in mind’, we designed special machinery that excludes light, oxygen, and heat, the three factors that turn healthy EFA-rich oils into unhealthy, toxic ones. This is also why you will always find Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend in a brown glass bottle, in a protective box, in the cooler of the supplement or produce section of your local whole foods market or natural food store. Instead of packaging our fresh, carefully made oils in plastic — which comes with health concerns — we chose to package Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend in glass. No other company makes oils with the same level of care we do.
In addition to the Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend (with unrefined DHA from algae), we have two other oil formulas: Udo`s Oil 3·6·9 Blend (the original blend) and Udo`s Oil High-Lignan 3·6·9 Blend (with added antioxidant-rich lignans).
THE BOTTOM LINE
More health problems come from damaged oils than any other part of nutrition. Fresh oils — especially the polyunsaturated oils — are perishable, just like other healthful but perishable fresh foods. We created Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend to provide a complete ‘food oil foundation’ from which to build a healthy body, giving you everything you need from good fats and oils — including the added benefit of preformed DHA — and none of the bad ones you should avoid.
EFAs are required for health and normal development at all stages of the human life cycle, which means this oil blend is made for everyone. EFAs support the natural functioning of cells, tissues, glands, and organs and, as a result, support healthy cardiovascular, brain and nerve function, and much more. It is also designed for anyone who:
Is not getting enough undamaged EFAs — especially omega-3s — from whole foods;
Consumes too many damaged omega-6s;
Is vegan or leans toward a plant-based diet;
Wants to get a wider, more complete range of unrefined fat/oil sources into their diet;
Values environmentally-sustainable sources of unsaturated good fats/oils;
Is concerned about the questions of efficacy, toxicity, and/or sustainability surrounding fish oil pill sources of omega-3s;
Would benefit from added DHA in their diet, including pregnant and breast-feeding women, aging adults, and people seeking additional cognitive function and eye health support;
Suffers from dry skin;
Is experiencing omega-3 or omega-6 deficiency symptoms.*

WHAT ARE THE KEY INGREDIENTS IN UDO`S OIL DHA 3·6·9 BLEND?
The key ingredients in this proprietary blend include organic flax, sesame, and sunflower seed oils, organic coconut and evening primrose oils, organic rice and oat germ oils, mixed tocopherols (including vitamin E), and plant-based DHA from algae. The cloudy layer in the oil is common with unrefined oils, where natural and health-supporting molecules are preserved, rather than being filtered out. To make the most of their benefits, gently shake the bottle before each use.
We deliberately formulated Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend to be richer in omega-3s than omega-6s to address the widespread omega-3 deficiency in most people`s diets and to replace the damaged omega-6s that are overabundant in Western diets.
HOW DO I USE UDO`S OIL DHA 3·6·9 BLEND FOR MAXIMUM BENEFIT?
For best results: Take 1 tablespoon or more per day, mixed into foods or blended into smoothies, with intake spread out over the course of the day. For optimal benefits, take about 1 tablespoon per 50 pounds of body weight per day.** An adult weighing 150 pounds would take about 3 tablespoons per day, and a child weighing 25 pounds would take about ½ a tablespoon per day.
Note: Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend should never be used for high-heat cooking such as frying, sauteéing, etc. Instead, use it for salad dressings, add it to smoothies, and mix it into other uncooked foods throughout the day, or mix it into cooked foods after they have been removed from heat sources, such as with soups, grains, pastas, steamed vegetables, etc. Visit the recipes page for our newest Udo`s Oil recipe ideas.

HOW DO I BEST STORE UDO`S OIL DHA 3·6·9 BLEND FOR MAXIMUM FRESHNESS?
Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend is perishable, just like other healthy fresh foods. Opened or unopened, always keep Udo`s Oil DHA 3·6·9 Blend refrigerated. Once opened, use the oil within 2 months. To extend shelf life, store Udo`s Oil in the freezer for up to 2 years. You can also refreeze an opened bottle of oil to keep it fresher longer without damaging the oil or breaking the glass bottle (oil does not expand when frozen).
