YourZooki Omega V Zooki 3-6-9 Strawberry Banana Supplement review
A healthy breakfast is the best way to kickstart your day, and for me, it's the easiest and fastest meal to throw together. I've been giving mine an extra boost with a drizzle of YourZooki's Omega V Zooki 3-6-9 Flax Seed Oil which is a tasty way to get your daily dose of vital omegas and essential fatty acids from a plant-based source.

What Is It?
YourZooki Omega V Zooki 3-6-9 is a Flax Seed Oil supplement with a difference as it's one of the few that I've tried which tastes really good (if you've ever tried plain flaxseed oil, you'll know what I mean - it's something of an acquired taste!). The high-strength Flaxseed Oil in YourZooki is sourced from organic farms in Canada, and then blended into a smoothie/thin yoghurt type emulsion that's been optimised for taste, convenience and absorption.

What Are The Ingredients?
Purified Water, Vegetarian Flaxseed Oil, Xylitol (plant-based sweetener), Glycerin, Vitamin E (D alpha tocopherol), Thickener (Acacia Gum), Sucrose (less than 0.1g), Acidity Regulator (Potassium bicarbonate), Oleic Acid, Natural Flavours, Natural Colours, Citric Acid.

What Are The Health Benefits?
Each 15ml serving provides 6mg Vitamin E, 3000mg Omega 3 (Alpha Linoleic Acid from Flaxseed), 800mg Omega 6 (Linoleic Acid from Flaxseed) and 900mg Omega 9 (Oleic Acid). Omega 3, 6 and 9, and Vitamin E, are all important to help protect the cells from oxidative stress, maintain normal blood cholesterol levels, support overall general health and wellbeing and they help to care for the maintenance of healthy skin and hair from within.

Who Can Take It?
As these omegas are derived from Flaxseed Oil and not fish oil, this plant-based supplement is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans, and can be used by all ages.

What Does It Taste Like?
It has a natural Strawberry Banana flavour and is sweetened with the plant-based sweetener Xylitol, so it tastes very similar to a strawberry banana smoothie! 

How Do I Use It?
YourZooki suggests taking 1-3 teaspoons a day for adults and up to 1 teaspoon a day for children. You can take it straight off the spoon, blend it in smoothies and protein shakes or simply drizzle it over toast, porridge, granola or yoghurt - the options are endless! I quite like it over a bowl of homemade granola (check out my recipe here), almond milk and fresh fruit as you can see above. Once opened, store it in the fridge and use by the best before date.

Overall Thoughts?
I'm a big advocate of taking daily supplements to boost your overall health, and this is a great way to get your daily amount of Omega 3, 6 and 9 without feeling like you're actually taking a supplement. It's so easy to add to your everyday breakfast routine, but best of all, it tastes great!

YourZooki Omega V Zooki 3-6-9 Flax Seed Oil Supplement* (450ml, £27.99) is available from yourzooki.com
