Udo's Choice Digestive Enzyme Blend
A Blend of Nine Vegetable Source Enzymes
Many enzymes on the market today are either created by chemical synthesis or made from animal organs -- hog stomach, bovine pancreas, lamb forestomach, etc. Plant enzymes, however, are derived from actual plants, cultivated on a plant medium.
Individual animal enzymes work in a narrow pH range and are, usually, only capable of digesting protein or fat. A broad-based plant enzyme supplement has a wider pH range of activity, allowing it to function throughout the entire digestive tract. It begins working in the upper stomach, thus decreasing the digestive enzyme secretion needed for digestion. Temporarily inactive in the lower stomach, plant enzymes return to their active state in the intestines, helping to complete the digestive process. Plant enzymes can also digest a wider range of food types.
Not all plant enzyme supplements are created equal! Many were originally developed to help preserve food for storage and shipping. Udo's Choice Ultimate Digestive Enzyme Blend was specifically designed for human consumption and is most active in the pH and temperature range found in the human body. It contains all the enzymes required to digest the full range of food types, but is especially good at digesting protein because of its high protease content. Protein that hasn't been fully digested is the major cause of food-related digestive complaints in our society.
Choosing the right enzymes can make all the difference. You'll feel better, and whether you want to improve or maintain your digestive health, your body will thank you.
Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill
The Complete Guide to Fats, Oils, Cholesterol and Human Health
By Udo Erasmus
Since first publication of his book in 1986 under the title Fats and Oils, Udo Erasmus has become an internationally recognized authority on the subject of fats and oils. His academic credentials include two years of post graduate studies in genetics and biochemistry and a PhD in Nutrition.
Healing fats are required, together with other nutrients, to prevent and reverse so-called "incurable" degenerative diseases: heart disease, cancer, and Type II diabetes. Healing fats also help reverse arthritis, obesity, PMS, allergies, asthma, skin conditions, fatigue, yeast and fungal infections, addictions, certain types of mental illness, and many other conditions.
Contrary to popular belief based on advertising hype, the most dangerous fats are typically found in margarine, shortenings, and heated oils.
Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill exposes the manufacturing process that turn healing fats into killing fats, explains the effects of these damaged fats on human health, and discloses the information that enables you to choose health-promoting oils.
Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill brings you the most current research on common and less well-known oils with therapeutic potential; flax, hemp, olive, fish, evening primrose, borage, black currant, and even the much maligned snake oil. You may be shocked and surprised by what you learn.
Some of the topics covered in this incredible book:
The Sugar-Fat Connection
Commercial Oil Making
Butter Vs. Margarine
Free Radicals and EFAs
Digestion of Fats, Oils, and Cholesterol
Stress and the Battery of Life
Antioxidants and the Fire That is Life
Meats, Eggs, Numerous oils and their properties
Athletes and Oils
The Business and Politics of Health
Many other topics!

Udo's Choice Oil Blend
"We must make sure to obtain the healing fats that our body needs, and to avoid the killer fats. Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is a balanced, convenient way to get everything we need from oils." -- Udo Erasmus
Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is a special blend of carefully chosen, natural, unrefined oils. It contains oils from fresh, certified organic flax, sesame and sunflower seeds, as well as oils from wheat germ, rice germ and oat germ.
Natural, unrefined Udo's Choice contains an ideal balance of the essential fatty acids (EFAs) omega 3 (alpha-linolenic) and omega 6 (linoleic). These EFAs are so called because they are essential to life itself. They cannot be created by the body and must be obtained through diet. Refined, hydrogenated oils turn EFAs into harmful trans-fatty acids, and studies show most contemporary Western diets are lacking in omega 3. To compensate for this, many consumers have turned to unrefined flax oil, high in omega 3. But, having the right balance between omega 3 and omega 6 is equally important. Too much of one will cause a deficiency of the other. Over the long term flax oil alone can lead to a shortage of omega 6.
Udo's choice was developed to address the need for a single oil that provides both EFAs in the correct amounts. The 2:1 ratio of 3s to 6s in Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend goes beyond anything previously available. It's the healthy solution to all your EFA needs.
This oil blend is rich in lecithin, which provides the building materials for healthy cell membranes. It also contains medium chain triglycerides -- easy to digest and assimilate, they are used directly by our cells as a source of energy without increasing fat deposition. Vitamin E is added to improve shelf-life and to act as a free radical scavenger in the body.
Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is pressed at a temperature of less than 50 degrees Celsius and, more importantly, in the absence of light and oxygen. The use of nitrogen-flushed, amber glass bottles further protects the oil from light and oxygen and helps to insure maximum stability.
MCTs can improve liver function and fat absorption. Unlike fats and oils, they are not transported through the lymphatic system during digestion, but go directly to the liver where they are burned to provide energy. Burned like carbohydrates, MCTs are a good source of energy for athletes. They have been shown to lower cholesterol levels and help people with irritable bowel problems
Like all fresh-pressed oils, Udo's Choice is sensitive to light, air and heat. It should not be used for frying, deep-frying or sauteing, but can otherwise replace most oils in food preparation and can be used in all the same ways as flax oil.
Udo's Choice is excellent for making delicious healthy salad dressings and can be mixed with yogurt or tofu. Try serving it on steamed vegetables or baked potatoes, adding it to homemade veggie soup (after cooking), or mixing it with extra virgin olive oil in dishes such as homus and tabouleh. It adds zing to brown rice and can make both hot and cold cereals more nutritious.
Athletes may benefit by adding Udo's Choice to their favorite protein shake. It can also be added to fresh vegetable juices.
Udo's Choice actually brings out and improves the natural flavors of the foods to which it is added. You can consume it on its own, by the spoonful.

How does it taste? Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend has a pleasant, nutty, buttery taste with a hint of sunflower flavor.
Why is it cloudy, and what is the sediment? The cloudiness and sediment are due to natural minor ingredients present in the unrefined oils used in Udo's Choice. They have been left in deliberately because they're good for you -- shake the bottle gently before use.
What is the product's shelf life? Udo's Choice is packaged in amber, glass bottles with a "consume before" date on the label.

Udo's Choice Super 5
Udo's Choice Super 5 is delicious raspberry flavored lozenges containing necessary and beneficial bacteria to support a normal, healthy intestinal microflora of both the large and small intestines.
Beneficial intestinal flora are absolutely essential for proper digestion and over-all health. Poor eating habits and the use of antibiotics in food production as well as medical treatments can wreak havoc in the gastrointestinal tract and the immune system. Beneficial bacteria support the human immune system, provide the body with various essential prostaglandins for balancing hormones, and even help prevent pathogenic organisms from gaining a foothold in the body.
Each tablet of Udo's Choice Super 5 contains 1 billion plus viable organisms of L. acidophilus DDS-1, B. bifidum, L. bulgaricus, S. thermophilus and L. salivarius in a base of maltodextrin, fructose and ascorbic acid. These beneficial bacteria support a normal, healthy intestinal microflora of both the large and small intestines. L. salivarius also helps protect your mouth, teeth, gums and throat from non-bacterial organisms.
Each bacterial culture in this blend is a specially cultured, selectively isolated pure strain of microflora which has been extensively researched at the University of Nebraska by Dr. Khem Shahani, the pioneer of probiotic research.
Take these chewable tablets on a regular basis or when traveling for extra protection from foreign microorganisms that may be in the food and water.
Suggested Use: Take one tablet a half hour after meals, 2-3 times daily or as directed. For best results dissolve 1-2 tablets slowly in mouth.
