Udo Erasmus – Best selling Speaker and Author
There are fats that the body cannot make but has to have,
the essential fats, Omega 3 and Omega 6.
Udo Erasmus is a legendary health and wellness pioneer, acclaimed author and extensive educator. As a child of war, Udo’s life began with intense struggle which continued throughout his youth. As a result, Udo developed a passion for finding the answers to life’s big questions. As an adult Udo got pesticide poisoning in 1980, leaving doctors at a loss regarding treatment. Deciding to take his health into his own hands, Udo began researching, and his discoveries changed the trajectory and purpose of his life. Udo developed the machinery to create Flaxseed Oil and started the Healthy Fats Movement. He is the founder of billion-dollar supplement line, Udo’s Choice, harnessing the healing power of nature through products ‘made with health in mind’. Udo’s Choice products include vegan omega oils, probiotics, digestive enzymes and greens powders found in Whole Foods and other health food stores worldwide. Today, Udo is a best selling speaker and author of many books, including the best-selling Fats That Heal Fats That Kill that sold over 250,000 copies. He teaches at events hosted by Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra and has extensive education in biochemistry, genetics, biology, and nutrition, and holds a master’s degree in counseling psychology.
