NatrixOne Camelina Oil for Dogs: Just The Facts

NatrixOne™ Most frequent questions and answers.

What is Camelina Oil?

Camelina sativa is a flowering plant in the Brassicaceae family and is alternatively known as camelina, gold-of-pleasure, wild flax and linseed dodder. It’s an oilseed crop native to Finland and regions east of the Ural mountains. The crop was widely grown in Northern and Eastern Europe up to the early 1940’s but was replaced with the introduction and widespread use of oilseed rape. Camelina is regaining prominence as a health product due to its high contents of phytonutrients and natural gamma-tocopherol also known as Vitamin E. Moreover, high levels of omega-3 ALA content make it a sustainable lipid source to replace fish oil in diets for farmed Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout and Atlantic cod. Herbalists also use the oil in human and animal healthcare.

What is CamOlive™?

CamOlive™ is our proprietary and non-GMO blend of cold pressed camelina seed oil varietals and olive triterpenes. We have blended our varietals to create a balanced ratio of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 in order to maximize omega-3 bioavailability. Camelina’s natural Vitamin E allows for a shelf life up to 2 years stored at room temperature and out of sunlight.

Is CamOlive™ Good for Dogs?

Yes! According to dog nutritionists, a majority of canine diets are higher in Omega-6 acids (pro-inflammation) than Omega-3 acids (anti-inflammation). For dogs to achieve optimal health, there must be a balanced ratio of Omega-3s and Omega-6s (which are found in CamOlive. Dogs can’t produce Omega-3 and Omega-6 within the body. Adding a supplement like NatrixOne can really help balance out the Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio.  Additionally, the added anti-inflammatory support provided by NatrixOne’s olive extract directly aids in reduction of inflammatory joint pain and skin issues. 

Why are Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids important for dogs?

Studies show Omega-3 fatty acids help support a dog’s immune system and reduce inflammation throughout the body.  This greatly helps a dog suffering from stiffness or arthritis. Feeding Omega-3 can prevent and heal damage to nerve cells. Omega-3 can also lessen inflammation in the serotonin pathways in the brain, allowing for more serotonin receptors to be activated. Serotonin affects mood; the lower the levels of serotonin are, the more anxious or nervous a dog can be.

Balancing a dog’s diet with Omega-3 fatty acids could lead to a horse with a more stable and consistent mood. Omega-3 can also help improve digestive health, enhance fertility, and improve coat conditions. In addition, dogs with skin sensitivity and allergies have greatly benefited from regular Omega-3. NatrixOne has the highest available plant-based Omega ratio on the market.

While often known as the “bad” omega fatty acids, Omega-6 fatty acids are necessary in well-balanced, moderate dosing, making CamOlive a great option for a dog’s diet. Omega-6s stimulate the immune system and assist in urine production, electrolyte balance, and digestion. These properties are important to maintain a healthy dog. Omega-6s also help fight off infection and are exceptionally effective when you’re looking to add some weight onto your pet. NatrixOne has an ideal ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6, making it the perfect addition to any dog diet.

Why should I choose a plant-based supplement?

Unlike fish-based supplements, plants offer something special called phytonutrients which are non-essential nutrients that have disease-fighting properties. Both seeds and olives are high in phytonutrients making NatrixOne™ an ideal anti-inflammatory.

Primary camelina seed phytonutrients: phenolics, flavanoids, beta-carotene, squalene, phenols, and multiple sterols including campesterol, beta- sitosterol, brassicasterol, stigmasterol and avenasterol.

Primary olive phytonutrients: lignans, secoiridoids and triterpenes. NatrixOne has high levels of maslinic acid, a potent triterpene, which exerts a wide range of biological activities including antitumor, antidiabetic, anti-obesity, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, neuroprotective and antimicrobial.

My dog is healthy. Why should I feed him NatrixOne™?

Many dogs eat processed dry kibble which is often void or low in phytonutrients. Even those pups on a raw diet will benefit from NatrixOne™. Whatever diet you follow we recommend boosting your dog’s bowl once daily as a preventative measure. Inflammation is the root cause of many diseases, so why not keep it at bay?

What medical conditions can NatrixOne™ help?

We have seen positive results in the treatment of skin/coat disorders including shedding, allergies, dry skin, and sebaceous adenitis as well as hip/elbow dysplasia, osteoarthritis, eyesight specifically in the retina, cognitive function, cancer and cancer prevention, inflammatory bowel disease, dry eye, cardiovascular health, autoimmune disorders, diabetes mellitus, anxiety and ear infections.

What does NatrixOne™ smell like? Will my dog eat it?

At NatrixOne™ we believe in simple ingredients and don’t add anything artificial to our products.  NatrixOne is as nature intended and its 2 simple plant-based ingredients lend an earthy plant-like smell. Even the pickiest eaters enjoy it as a top dressing on their food, and in fact- our most common complaint is that an owner’s dog ‘demands’ NatrixOne be added to all of its food once it has tried it ;0.  If you are concerned you have an ultra finicky pup, try putting a little on your finger and letting the dog lick it off before introducing it to their food.

What makes NatrixOne™ different than other dog supplements?

In addition to being 100% plant-based, NatrixOne’s products are grown, controlled, and monitored from the seeds needed for the oils (which we developed) to the bottling and shipping of the finished product (done in-house). We guarantee that the products are safe for dogs because we control this entire process. Quality ingredients make quality products and our 100% control prevents any possible cross-contamination and guarantees a pure product… Because you want the best for your dog and should always know where the ingredients you feed to them came from.
