For the first quarter of 2015, BioStar has chosen to pledge a portion of their proceeds from their Gold Star EQ (Camelina Oil) and Empower (Hemp Seed Oil) products to Friends of the Earth. BioStar has chosen to support Friends of the Earth this quarter because like BioStar, they believe in taking a hard stand against unregulated and unlabeled biotechnology; both genetically modified organisms and the new synthetic biology that can be used in foods.
*Update: Thanks to YOU, in April 2015, we were able to donate 10% of sales of our Empower and Gold Star oils to help Friends of the Earth do what they do best – promote solutions that help to create environmentally sustainable and socially just societies. Thank you!*
Friends of the Earth is part of a global network which helps to support solutions to deep-rooted environmental problems. Recent accomplishments include: keeping GMO seafood off grocery store shelves from more than 60 major grocery chains including Safeway, Kroger, and Whole Foods; protecting Puget Sound from ship dumping: a ban on cruise ships dumping wastewater while docked at the Port of Seattle protecting the people and marine life of Puget Sound; prevented the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes in Key West. Current projects include: the Bee Action campaign and government oversight of synthetic biology which involves a largely unregulated and rapidly developing biotechnology that involves engineering new organisms from scratch, including Synbio Vanilla.

Gold Star EQ Camelina oil is a nutritional powerhouse of essential fatty acids and antioxidants. Camelina oil is derived from the plant Camelina Sativa, which is also known as gold of pleasure, false flax, wild flax, German sesame, and Siberian oilseed.
Camelina oil provides an important balance and ratio of the omega fatty acids: omega 3, omega 6, and omega 9. The ratio of these fatty acids in Camelina oil is 2:1:2. Camelina oil also provides specific Vitamin E tocopherols: alpha, beta, and gamma. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant for horses and plays a vital role in maintaining muscle health and performance.
Gold Star EQ is cold pressed camelina oil, never heat processed. It is unrefined and not solvent-extracted like vegetable, corn, soy, and rice bran oils. Free of preservatives, emulsifiers, ethyl butarate, vanillian, natural and artificial flavorings. Due to the vibrancy and quality of this oil, only 1-2 ounces/tablespoons once or twice per day is needed.
