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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
You may see looser stools for 1-2 weeks. If this happens, we recommend reducing the dosage and possibly adding 1-2 tablespoons of organic canned pumpkin (no spices or sugar added) to the feedings until stools return to normal. You can gradually work your way back up to the full dosage once your dog’s gut adapts. Please maintain a dosage that works for your dog. We have seen positive results on half dosages.
