Healthy oils are a vital part of our body’s requirement for good nutrition. They are necessary for very many functions and are particularly necessary for the permeability and flexibility of cell membranes. Healthy oils are the cornerstone of a proper nutritionally balanced diet.
Many people are deficient in omega-3 – essential fatty acids which the body cannot manufacture and must be obtained from the diet. They are necessary for the health of the immune, cardiovascular and skeletal systems. Flax Seed Oil is the best vegetarian source of these vital omega-3s.
Water for Health is the European distributor for Omega Nutrition, which pioneered the processing of organic, cold-pressed healthy oils. Omega was the first company in North America to process organic cold-pressed Flax Seed Oil over 25 years ago. They now offer an extensive range of oils with the same emphasis on quality in terms of seed selection, processing and packaging. In addition to flax, they supply Coconut Oil, MCT Oil and Pumpkin Seed Oil. With the exception of MCT Oil, all our Omega Nutrition oils are certified organic.
These vegetarian oils are an excellent addition to the diet, giving you quality nutrition to support good health. They are oils with natural healing power.
In addition to the Omega Nutrition range, we offer high-quality products from WHC, who are best known for their award-winning fish oils. Indeed, the independent US laboratory Labdoor ranks UnoCardio 1000 as the best-quality fish oil in the world. O'Hisa is an advanced skin nutraceutical product containing sea buckthorn oil and a range of synergistic ingredients to promote healthy skin and hair from the inside out. This product has a high omega-7 content together with other vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Organic Flax Seed Oil is packed with nutritional value. High in essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, the healthy oil can be added to soups, salads, yogurts, smoothies, cottage cheese or protein shakes. Organically grown and certified in Europe, and made from nothing but cold-pressed flax seeds, the oil is unrefined, devoid of cholesterol and trans fats and 100% suitable for vegetarians.
Coconut Oil is ideal for all high-temperature cooking and a great vegan-friendly alternative to butter. Omega Nutrition's oils include full-flavoured Virgin Coconut Oil and an Aroma-Free Oil. Both are organic. The oils come from the Philippines, which is noted for its high-quality coconut production, and are processed and packed by Omega in accordance with their unique Omegaflo® process.
Black Seed Oil (Nigella Sativa) is an age-old remedy popularly favoured by herbalists, nutritionists, complimentary therapists and functional medicine/naturopathic doctors. Traditionally used for both external and internal application, it is one of the most highly-regarded all-purpose natural oils and is available in two strengths: Standard Strength and High Strength.
Formulated by award-winning fish oil manufacturer WHC, O'Hisa stands for Omega Hair Immunity Skin Anti-Aging. The highly-rated product fuses natural ingredients derived from plants to help you better maintain smooth, radiant skin and lustrous, healthy hair. Thanks to its inclusion of zinc and vitamins B6 and B16, it also promotes the healthy functioning of the immune system.
Is your diet lacking in omega-3s? The Omega-3 Index measures the amount of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA) to inform your circulatory health. Omega-3s have been found to keep your cells younger for longer. With a level below 8%, you should consider a supplement. Omega-3s occur naturally in oily fish, but regretfully most people do not eat the recommended two portions per week.
All of our healthy oils are produced by Omega Nutrition. Omega Nutrition was the first company to introduce certified Organic Flax Oil to the North American market nearly 25 years ago. They have set the standard for flax oil manufacture with their innovative process and light protected packaging. The Omegaflo® process protects highly reactive EFA’s from excessive heat, light and oxygen during processing and bottling. This is reflected in the superior quality and taste of the products. Omega Nutrition’s Flax Oil is the recommended brand of flax for those undergoing cancer treatment, according to the Gerson protocol.
