The perfect measure (golden cut) really exists and manifests itself in all of nature, and we found it in an oil from a tiny seed of a gentle Latin name: camelina sativa.
It is little known in our country, most often as a rootstock; in some countries it is called better or wild flax, Siberian flax or literally “gold of pleasure“.
The oil is obtained by a cold process of mechanical pressing of the seeds of the undergrowth. Camelina is one of the best natural sources of unsaturated fatty acids: it contains 35 to 40% omega-3 and 15-20% omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and about 16% omega-9 unsaturated fatty acids.
It is also rich in antioxidants such as tocopherols, so it is characterized by high stability and resistance to oxidation (vitamin E contains 110 mg / 100 g).
It is suitable for seasoning food (but not for frying or cooking at high temperatures), it has a pleasant taste, and as a natural source of essential fatty acids it is the best support for good health.
Undercoat oil known as “better flaxseed oil” is an effective substitute for flaxseed.
The composition of essential oil is almost identical to flaxseed oil in terms of the composition of essential fatty acids, but its advantage is significantly higher stability due to the high content of organically bound vitamin E-tocopherol).

Countless scientific studies have proven to us that nature offers excellent solutions, we just need to know how to use them. The astonishing synergy of plant substances cannot yet be achieved by artificially produced substances, and to believe that we could do without nature would be a great misconception. Plants have naturally developed a large number of phyto-protective substances or phytonutrients that help them cope with fungal and bacterial infections and allow them to overcome daily stresses. If we eat plant foods, we also consume certain active and protective micro and macro elements that play a significant role in the prevention of various types of diseases and health protection.
