As a top level professional athlete there are few things as important as your physical wellbeing. We train each day with an intense focus on getting the most out of each training session and recovering well in order to arrive on race day at our best possible form. Cycling is a truly demanding sport with races lasting up to three weeks covering hundreds of kilometres a day, in conditions ranging from cold and snowy to extreme heat.
A couple of seasons ago I started incorporating coconut oil into my nutritional regime after learning about its many health benefits and it seemed the best way to incorporate more fats into my diet to offset the high caloric demand of our sport. The effects were great and in a desire to further improve any benefits MCT oil seemed like the next logical step.
Since introducing MCTs into my diet the results have been fantastic, never have I been leaner, had greater mental focus and stable energy supply that seems to last all day. Add to that the benefits of muscle sparing and immune system boosting properties and you truly have a product that all athletes should be taking seriously. - Christian Meier

I love Omega Nutrition products. I currently use the Omega SportsPro Protein Blend, Flax Oil and Essential Balance 3-6-9 oil in my morning shake. I cook with the Avocado Oil and enjoy the Pumpkin Seed Butter on my morning toast. Omega Nutrition products are a big part of my daily nutrition and I can't recommend them highly enough.

CFL Grey Cup Champion reveals his Omega Nutrition favorites
I've been diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer and have been undergoing radiation and chemotherapy for 3 months now. My taste buds seemed to have been zapped with treatment so food no longer tastes that great. I wanted to focus on easy and healthy recipes that would give me the nutrients I need without me having to cook with a lot of ingredients. I am so happy to have found Omega Nutrition products.
Because my palate has been so underwhelmed lately, I just tried the products for their nutritional value. To my surprise, all of the products taste great to me.
My favorite thing to make are Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder smoothies which consist of 1 tablespoon of protein powder, 1 cup almond milk,1 cup of spinach, 1 cup berries, 1 banana, half of a green apple.
I like to use the Prune Extract for baking instead of sugar and it works great. I also love the Garlic-Chili Flax Oil for salads and soups.
Omega Nutrition has come to be a brand I really trust. I'll continue to use it while in treatment and even after. Thank you for aiding in my recovery! - Tanisha Pingel

My story started years ago when we discovered six members of our family and our dog had allergies to gluten. I became a member of the Celiac Society Vancouver Chapter and have learned so much about life without gluten that I became the President and Membership Director of the Vancouver chapter. I really enjoy sharing the news about what products are gluten free and promote good health. I also try to help people suffering from gluten intolerance with the networking that the membership to the Celiac Association can do.
For just $65 a year members receive the 'Celiac for Dummies' book and six newsletters per year. With the pool of information we can all help each other. I use the Omega products for that purpose. I make smoothies with the Omega Pumpkin Protein Powder. Bake with the Coconut Flour and Hi-Lignan Nutri-flax powder. I also use the Cold Milled Flax Seeds over oatmeal.
I also supplement our dog diet with the Pumpkin Energy for dogs and the Omega Pet Oil. She really likes the taste. If I can help with your celiac diet questions or support, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org - Gluten Free Granny

I never ate breakfast as I work in construction and found it difficult to digest anything in the morning. So, I would basically survive on coffee from 5 o'clock AM to 10 o'clock AM and then felt completely exhausted for the rest of the day no matter what I ate.
Now I eat an Omega Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder Smoothie in the morning and have a full load of energy to last me until lunch time without that full feeling. I also body build and find trying to eat enough protein in a day difficult. My wonderful wife bakes muffins and brownies with the pumpkin protein powder in it, so I can have my cake and protein too! The feeling of easy to digest combined with the sustained energy really helps me get through my work day and evening work out.
The smoothie recipe I enjoy most is 1 cup of milk or milk substitute, 2 scoops of Omega Pumpkin Protein Powder, 1 whole banana and 1 cup of my favourite fresh or frozen berries. I have been using blueberries as they are high in antioxidants. I'm sure you will feel a real sense of well-being by using Omega Pumpkin Protein Powder. - Bill from Langley, BC

I have discovered for that an injury I have (simply put a bulging disc at L4-L5 as well as spondyolythesis all putting pressure on the nerves in that area) extra doses of the Garlic-Chili Flax Oil and using only small amounts of the Essential Balance really does help to keep things looser and working better. Thank you! - Richard Diamond, Competitive Mountain Biker
I have been using flax oil for about a year and a half, however, the oil I was using was not from Omega Nutrition. I ordered two 16oz. bottles from your company and the difference was absolutely amazing. I MEAN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I'm ordering four bottles at this time. The flavor was the most noticeable difference and I could actually see the flax seed on top of the bottle, which answered my question of why I had to shake the bottle. Today it is somewhat rare to find a company that puts quality #1. When taking your flax oil, you just know that you're going to feel better. Quality promotes confidence and that is what I feel with your products. - Jak R, Bay Harbor Island, Florida

Your health information included in your catalog is invaluable! I read a great many health magazines and articles in the newspaper but I would not have learned many things if I didn't read your catalog from cover to cover. Thank you for your concern about your customer's health. - Susan B, CA
