Update On The Udo's Oil Blend 3-6-9 & Multi-Vitamins

Monday, February 01, 2010

Back in October 2009, I started taking Progressive Women Multi-Vitamins along with Udo's Oil 3,6,9 Blend (look here for a quick recap) for overall health. I took these supplements consistently (until finished) and I did see an improvement in my skin and nails.

The multi-vitamins were somewhat annoying because you have to take 3 pills daily and majority of the time I took 1-2 a day since I would always forget. My skin looked vibrant and remained somewhat clear of acne (did get a few pimples here & there). My nails stopped breaking and started to grow strong. Overall, the vitamins were good. I had high hopes that it would perform better, but I should have taken it the right way in order to see optimal results. Next time around I will buy a vitamin that only requires me to take it 1-2 times daily.

The taste of the Udo's 3-6-9 Oil Blend was AWFUL!! (kind of a nutty flavor). I dreaded taking it every single day. Most days I had to chug it down with juice, food....whatever I could find!! I promised myself that when I finished the bottle, I would purchase capsules (no taste) so that I wouldn't have to go through that horrible process again. I must say that it did improve my digestion where food was concerned. No bloating or heaviness after eating :-)

Oh, I almost forgot, NEVER take this oil on an empty stomach or else you will feel extremely sick and nauseated. That was another "con" in my opinion. If I do repurchase this product, I will purchase it in capsule form.

  1. Hi! We make the Udo's Oil and I personally mostly recommend mixing the oil in with food. Just like I wouldn't chug olive oil, Udo's oil can be mixed with balsamic vinegar, fresh lemon juice, etc for a home made dressing for salad, or mixed into soups, smoothies, etc. That will likely work much better for you!

    Thanks for the support and the hair/nails advice!

  2. Recently I was recommended by my hair stylist about trying out the Natura Keratin Organic Hair Care System. Naturally, my curiosity was piqued, as keratin hair treatments are all the rage in the hair care industry right now. But I also had a lot of trepidation about the process. What is it? How does it work? Is it safe for African-American hair? Is all my hair going to fall out?! Needless to say, I had a lot of research to do before considering this hair treatment!
    So, after much due dilligence, I decided to go ahead with the treatment. And, Woah. I have never been able to style my hair from start to finish that fast in my entire life! your hair dry super smooth, super fast. In fact, if you wait to long to blow dry it, your hair will have air dried on its own.
    My hair became absolutely lovely, I have had several personal friends do the Natura Keratin organic system and they can’t stop raving about it. If this process is something that would be perfect for your hair type and you live in south florida, most salons are offering this process for an average of about $200 dollars.

  3. Thank you both for the comments. I appreciate the support. Thank you Amanda for the heads up on the treatment. I'll look into this treatment. The info you provided was helpful.
