Fitness & Udo’s Oil
Improving your Energy & Stamina
Everybody wants more energy, increased stamina and better recovery. These are just few of the many great ways consuming more Essential Fatty Acids can be of specific benefit to athletes. That’s mainly because athletes have different nutritional requirements: they need to get 15-25% of total energy from fats. But not just any fats, only ‘good’ fats, and they have to be in the correct 2:1:1 ratio of omega 3, 6 and 9s. Just like the Omegas in Udo’s Oil do.
In Danish study using Udo’s Oil it was found that with the correct Omega ratio at the rate of 15ml per 25kg of bodyweight per day, the next health benefits were shown:
Enhanced stamina by 40-60%
Improved muscular development (anabolic)
More frequent training without over training symptoms
Faster recovery from demanding, hard training sessions
Faster healing of injuries
Improved sleep in some athletes
Improved concentration and focus
Improved skin conditions
Improved cardiovascular/heart health
Lowered insulin requirements in people with type 1 diabetes
Why it is a balance of Essential Fatty Acids important?
When you consume big amounts of ‘good fats’ such as monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), these become integrated into the functioning of the cells and build protective benefits against disease. Udo’s Oil works by optimising training adaptations for athletes through cell signalling mechanisms and protecting DNA from oxidative damage. This means a more efficient, healthier body.
It’s very important to have an adequate and balanced amount of ‘good’ fats (or essential fatty acids) in your diet as they both offer different health benefits.
MUFAs (omega 9) are cardio protective but not essential
PUFAs (omega 3 and 6) contain the essential fatty acids (EFAs) body cannot create and therefore must be consumed daily in our diet
The good fats in Udo’s Oil build energy and support recovery for optimum athletic performance.

Joints and Recovery
Every athlete knows how frustrating injury can be. While rest and recovery is essential, the correct nutritional plan will also help with the healing process. Essential Fatty Acids are important for every cell membrane to function at its best. When the cells in muscle and joint tissue are healthy and efficient, the muscles and joints recover faster.
The healing process begins immediately after exercise and injury. At first, ‚clean-up‘ cells are sent to the injured place to remove damaged tissue. This is followed by an inflammatory reaction that includes laying down collagen fibres and rebuilding healthy connective tissue. Nutritional support can help speed up this process and you will recover faster.
Omega 3 fatty acids help to make chemical mediators which regulate inflammation, blood clotting, vascular dilation and immune suppression, which all help with recovery.
In the Danish study mentioned above, among the many great benefits linked with taking Udo’s Oil, the athletes also reported both improved recovery after exercise and improved healing from injuries.
