Camelina oil contains more than twice as much omega 3 as 6 (about 38% omega 3, 18% omega 6 and 14% omega 9), an almost perfect balance that is not found naturally in any other oil (2: 1).1 It is also rich in vitamin E (antioxidants). 2 This makes it a healthy nutritional supplement for heart, body and mind. 1-2 tsp correspond to your daily need of omega 3.3

The unique concentration of omega 3 fatty acids can:

  • Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.4
  • Strengthen the immune system and the function of the brain, eyes and nerves. 5
  • Protect against cognitive diseases such as dementia and Alzheimers.6
  • Prevent eye diseases such as macular degeneration.7
  • Prevent nerve damage caused by inflammation.8

We are a small family business with farming as our main occupation. This does not stop us from having a very high level of ambition when it comes to finding credible studies / references about the different uses for our camelina, however data and research findings change and are updated constantly. If you have questions about a reference, please do not hesitate to contact us.
