Podcast Episode 251: The Powerful Health Benefits of Essential Fatty Acids with Udo Erasmus

Today, Samantha’s guest is Udo Erasmus, the co-founder of Udo’s Choice line of essential fatty acids. Udo designed the machinery for making oils with optimal health in mind and pioneered flax oil, a billion dollar industry, which can now be found in health food stores across the globe. Being a war child, and later working as a pesticide sprayer, are just two of the significant life events that ultimately shaped Udo into the vibrant eighty-year-old he is today. In this episode, Udo shares the stories from his life’s most pivotal moments and gives the 101 on what we need to know about fatty acids.

  • “The deeper you go into the stillness within you, the more you discover that there is sound in the stillness, love in the emptiness, and light in the darkness. Becoming fully present in all of that, and present in our surroundings—not lost in thought in your head—is actually the primary purpose of being alive.”
    • Udo 
  • “The negative effect that comes from omega 6 oils, according to the research, should actually be blamed on the damage done by processing. The people who are saying, ‘Don’t do this, don’t do that’ haven’t done their homework.”
