WINTER WONDER WORKER: UDO’S ULTIMATE OIL
“Oh you look well!”
Before Christmas I started taking Udo’s Ultimate Oil Blend every morning. Mixing it into yoghurt and muesli, adding it to smoothies. Then this happened…
“Oh you look well!” said a friend. “You look well!” said my cousin. “You’re looking well!” said our man at the post office. “Fi, you’re looking really well!” said the lady whose dogs I walk.
My Week of Looking Well became the Month of Looking Well then I went away for Christmas (without the oil). For various reasons, last week was the week of not looking so well but I may be slightly addicted to my winter wonder worker now, and now that I’m home and back on track, I’m starting to take this regularly again – starting today.
The big thing about FATS is, they’re good and bad. The good ones help our bodies function optimally. No time to go into it here but Udo Erasmus, founder of Udo’s, goes into it in depth in Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill.
Humans can’t make Omega 3 or 6, so we need to consume them. But here’s the clincher: while Omega 6 is in a variety of oils, all over the place, you have to look to fish, walnuts, soybean, canola and flaxseed oil for your Omega 3. We need more Omega 3 v. Omega 6 (although we need both!) They have a panoramic assortment of health benefits from immunity to fat loss, to heart health to healthy skin and hair, to energy and longevity,brain function and reproduction. Equally importantly, Omega 3 (not 6) is anti-inflammatory.
