What is Camelina ?

Camelina sativa is a flowering plant in the Brassicaceae Mustard) family commonly known as False Flax or Gold of Pleasure. Camelina is a crop native to Finland, Romania and regions east of the Ural Mountains of western Russia. Seeds and capsules of the crop have been found in archaeological excavations from the Bronze Age in Scandinavia. The crop has been an important oil crop for centuries with references to its cultivation in Germany as far back as 600 BC. Camelina is well renowned for its therapeutic and healing properties due to its high Omega-3 content.

Camelina Omega-3 oil is derived by pressing the camelina seed. The oil from the camelina seed contains the full spectrum of plant-based omega fatty acids, including highly concentrated alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), wrapped up in a uniquely balanced 2:1:2 omega-3,-6,-9 fatty acid ratio. These vital features allow it to support healthy metabolism and the proper functioning of your cardiovascular and central nervous systems, as well as aiding in the regulation of inflammation and oxidative stress.

The Omega-3 ALA in camelina has long been known as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that may reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cancer, while also improving brain function due to its complete and uniquely balanced omega profile, which contains more than twice the amount of Omega-3 (~38%), as compared to omega-6 (~18%). Camelina oil also contains powerful carotenoids and phosphatides which help slow the aging process and prevent DNA damage. Adding all-natural, high omega camelina oil as an everyday health supplement to the human diet has many distinct advantages.

Camelina oil is the new standard for high-omega plant-based fatty acids. Camelina oil is nature's perfect Omega-3 rich oil... it’s the heart-healthy oil you’ve never heard of.
