Enjoy a 60 minute interview with Udo Erasmus where we discuss Essential Fats, Omega 3 6 and 9's, Probiotics and other natural health principles. Without question, we all need
essential fats in our diet. It's the Good Fats that literally protect us from disease and is equally as important as protein, calcium and water.
In this interview, we discuss not only the health reasons to include Essential Fats in your diet, but also how Essential Fatty Acids play an important role in Weight Loss (Fat Burning) and Building Muscle.
Udo explains how Udo's Oil or Essential Fats are the best natural thermogenic on this planet!

When I begin anyone on their cleansing program, I strongly recommend adding Udo's Oil to their diets. It's as important as the cleanse.
Just as a member of a large family
has many roles, essential fats serve many functions in the
complex workings of the human body. Taken in the right amounts
and ratios, and taken from the right sources, essential fats
help establish and maintain health as follows . . .
performance, and stamina. EFAs enhance thermogenesis,
help build muscle, prevent muscle break down, and speed recovery
Strengthen the immune
system. EFAs make hormone-like eicosanoids that regulate
immune and inflammatory responses. N-3s have anti-inflammatory
effects and can slow autoimmune damage;
Lower most risk factors
for cardiovascular disease. EFAs (especially n3s) lower
abnormally high levels of blood pressure, triglycerides,
Lp(a), fibrinogen, tendency to clot formation, and inflammation;
Improve brain function:
mood, intelligence , behavior, and vision. Our brain
is over 60% fat. EFAs are important components of the entire
nervous system. They are necessary to make the neurotransmitter
serotonin. Depression and other brain diseases show decreased
levels of n-3;
Aid in weight reduction.
EFAs help keep mood and energy up and suppress appetite, thereby
aiding in weight loss. More recently, they have been found
to block the genes that produce fat in the body (saturated
and Trans Fat do not have this same effect) and
Regulate organs and
glands. Liver and kidneys, adrenal and thyroid glands,
and the production of male and female hormones need EFAs;
Speed recovery and
healing. EFAs are necessary for cell growth and division.
They form all cell membranes and regulate vital cell activity;
Support healthy child
development. For nervous system development, a growing
fetus needs optimum EFAs from the mother's body. Mothers
become depleted of EFAs during pregnancy, and need optimal
EFA intake for their health and their children's optimum
Poorly digested foods tie up the immune system and can cause
gut inflammation, leaky gut, and allergies. N-3s improve gut
integrity, and decrease inflammation and "leaky gut";
EFAs have anti-fungal, anti-yeast, and anti-microbial properties,
helping to protect against infections;
Keep bones strong.
EFAs aid in the transport of minerals that keep bones and teeth
strong, helping to prevent osteoporosis;
Ease PMS. Studies
indicate that n-6 (GLA) intake was voted, by women, among the
top three most effective PMS treatments. N-3s may be even more
skin, hair, and nails. Some of the first signs of EFA
deficiency are dry, flaky skin, dull hair, and brittle nails.
N-3s can help skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis,
and acne. Also, GLA (n-6 derivative) administration is useful
for some patients with atopic eczema.
