Jan 21, 2016

DALLAS, TX (January 26, 2016)Clean Eating Magazine recently announced Dr. Ohhira’s Essential Living Oils™ for a second time as a “Clean Choice Award” Winner.

“With more and more companies working to create clean and healthy packaged products and supplements, we feel it’s important to reward their innovation and service to healthy eaters living a clean lifestyle,” said Alicia Rewega, Editor in Chief of Clean Eating Magazine. “In every way, clean eating is all about consuming whole food and supplements in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible.”

Dr. Ohhira’s Essential Living Oils™ offer a vegan certified option providing balanced Omega -3, 6 and 9 ratios that serve as a complete and balanced source of essential fatty acids. In response to the common Omega-6 imbalance, the American Heart Association recommends regularly consuming fatty fish to promote a healthier Omega-3 intake. However, an increasing number of consumers are looking for alternative sources of EFAs, due to issues of personal taste preference or vegan lifestyles.

Ms. Rewega conveyed that choosing the ‘’Clean Choice Award” consisted of criteria that all 140 worthy Clean Choice Winners had to meet to be designated to sit among the very best the natural market has to offer. The conditions and stipulations that made up the selection process included: planet-friendly packaging, life-simplifying power, current and cutting edge, simple, real food ingredients, high score by the Environmental Working Group’s ( screener that give safety ratings against harmful toxins, availability and accessibility, organic, sustainable and GMO-free.
