A minimum of 1.5% of your daily energy intake needs to be Omega 3 to provide your body with the tools it needs to keep your cell membranes supple and to create the hormones for optimal operation. Alpha™ Camelina oil has a high enough Omega 3 content to be suitable for supplementation. For a regular 2000 calorie diet, you need 30 calories worth of Omega 3.
Alpha™ Camelina Oil is ~35% Omega 3. To get 30 calories worth of Omega 3, you need to consume 1 tablespoon ( 3 teaspoons, or 15 ml ) a day.
Alpha™ Camelina Oil is a correctively balanced Omega 3, 6 & 9 oil, helping to restore the preferred ratio of Ω3 to 6 in the North American diet. Alpha™ Camelina Oil easily replaces less beneficial and potentially harmful seed oils ( olive, sunflower, safflower, canola, walnut, corn, peanut, soy, grapeseed ) in your kitchen cupboard.
If you're trying to function on a low fat diet, make a higher proportion of your daily fat intake a healthy saturated fat, like Alpha™ DME™ Fair Dinkum Fair Trade Virgin Organic Coconut Oil. This will keep the Omega 3 available for the functions that require it.
