At Smart Earth we have developed world class varieties of Camelina, and our oil is 100% non-GMO, cold-pressed and grown by great farmers in Saskatchewan. Here's an excerpt from a recent academic paper entitled Bioactive Compounds, Nutritional Quality and Oxidative Stability of Cold-Pressed Camelina (Camelina sativa L.) Oils - this should address your question about the value of Camelina oil for human (and equine) health: "The high nutritional value of camelina oil is primarily related to its fatty acid profile. It contains only about 10% saturated fatty acids (SFA), mainly palmitic (16:0), stearic (18:0) and eicosanoic (20:0) acids. Oleic (18:1) (14–16%) and eicosenoic acids (20:1) (12–15%) are predominant in monounsaturated fatty acids. Over half of the total fatty acid pool is constituted of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA), of which the highest proportions are a-linolenic acid (ALA) (18:3) (31–40%) and linoleic acid (LA) (18:2) (15–23%). Of particular importance is the high content of ALA, which is considered an n-3 essential fatty acid, and whose supply in the diet is very often insufficient. a-Linolenic acid is very important in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and in ensuring proper vision and the general functioning of the human organism. In addition, Rahman et al. showed that Camelina sativa L., upon consumption, may exert anti-obesity and antidiabetic effects, and may also inhibit human low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation and DNA damage induced by peroxyl and hydroxyl radicals. The seed extracts of camelina showed significant antioxidant activity and effectively inhibited pancreatic lipase and a-glucosidase activities. These enzymes in the digestive tract are associated with lipid and carbohydrate digestion, respectively, and control obesity and blood glucose level in the human body. The nutritional benefits of camelina oil have been known and appreciated for many years, as demonstrated by its use in herbal medicine (for wounds, treatment of burns, stomach ulcers, and eye inflammations). The plant is often recommended as a dietary oil to supplement deficiencies of the n-3 acids family. Cold-pressed camelina oil is also rich in non-glycerols—the content of tocopherols varies between 55.6–99.4 mg/100 g, and sterols from 360 to 590 mg/100 g. Camelina oil is characterized by a very high nutritional value; therefore, the consumption of this oil can improve human health, especially in industrialized countries."
