Dr Budwig’s Theory on Good Fats

The formula for vitality

When we address the issue of how to maintain our health and increase our vital energy, we must look at the cells which make up our bodies. The cell is the smallest functional unit in the body. Inside these cells, a lot of metabolic processes are constantly taking place with the end goal of producing energy for our bodies. Our organism is made up of approximately 100 trillion cells. A healthy metabolism is, therefore, the basic prerequisite for our overall health.

More vitality and fitness

The central component of the diet: native flax seed oil which, due to its high, natural energy potential, ensures that our cells receive their daily required amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Pure vegetable oil compositions, which use valuable flax seed oil as a base and are tailored to special health-related needs, make ideal supplements to Dr. Budwig’s principle of good fats. The combination of healthy fatty acids with sulfur-containing amino acids from Quark and along with plenty of fruits and vegetables, provides an ideal basis for optimal cellular respiration. The result: more vitality, an improved sense of well-being.

Here’s what you need to know about Fats

  • The two EFAs are alphalinolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fat and linoleic acid (LA), an omega-6 fat.
  • Good health requires the proper ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fats; the ideal ratio is around 1:2.
  • The average diet today is more around 1:20 to 1:50. Too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3.
  • The Flaxseed oil ratio (omega 3s to omega 6s) is about 4:1, a super source of omega-3.

Dr. Budwig theorized that when combining flaxseed oil with cottage cheese, a special chemical reaction occurs that allows more oxygen to be brought into the cells of the body when this mixture is consumed. More scientifically explained, when the two come together, the flaxseed oil became more “water soluble” and has an easier time entering the cell membrane.
