it is preferable to take Camelina oil in the morning with breakfast. It is possible to drink it alone or mixed with cereals, yogurt, milk or other beverages. If you can’t at breakfast, is also possible to take it during other meals. Camelina oil has a herbal taste with peanuts-like aftertaste.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) or essential fatty acids (EFA) are necessary for the physiologic functions of the body. They are defined as essentials because our body cannot produce them by itself, so they must be taken from food or as natural diet supplement.
Omega-3, Omega-6 and all the other polyunsaturated fatty acids are necessary for energy production, cell membrane biosynthesis and maintenance, metabolism regulation and platelets-aggregating factor production. For these reasons PUFAs interact with triglycerides metabolism and help to keep cholesterol in the optimal range. They are important for our cardio-vascular health, useful to prevent skin and mucosa dryness and help to find more energies and reduce the fatigue.
Fish and vegetal food, mainly oils, are the main source of Omega fats. Our body transforms and synthetized vegetal fatty acids contained in food directly in Omega 3 and Omega 6.
Vegetal Omega-3 fatty acid (ALA alpha-linolenic acid) and Omega-6 (alpha-linoleic acid) are ideal for vegetarian and vegan, for children and for the people who don’t eat fish or prefer vegetal food.
