Ted Tieken created OmegaOil after suffering from a metabolic disorder that left him fatigued, in chronic pain, and gaining weight. Years of doctors and a long list of unsuccessful treatments, Ted decided to try a ketogenic diet - low carbohydrates, high fat - as a way to lose weight and balance energy. He cut out refined sugar and starches and focused on meat, fish, and vegetables. Within a few months, Ted saw most of the weight drop off, his pain levels subside, and his overall energy rebound. Ted was thrilled with the results and committed to staying on a ketogenic diet.
Because his diet now contained a large amount of fat, Ted grew increasingly focused on consuming the most nutritious fat possible. But what did it mean to be the most nutritious fat? Months of rigorous analysis yielded a balanced omega-3:omega-6 ratio and the same blend of saturated and unsaturated fat as the body stores. However, Ted quickly realized that nothing like this existed in the market. An entrepreneur at heart, Ted created his own blend of oil that met these criteria. Ted's oil was an immediate hit with friends and family who raved about the flavor as much as the nutrition. Today, that nutritious and delicious product is known as OmegaOil.
