I believe everyone should be on omega 3’s due to the many health benefits. There is not an area in your body that would not benefit from omega 3’s! For children, taking omega 3’s has been shown to improve IQ up to 30 points! For seniors, taking omega 3’s has been shown to prevent brain shrinkage/improve eye health/improve cognition/improve memory/lower blood pressure – and much more!
If you find you are burping up your omega 3’s, I have found there are two key reasons:
- You are taking a rancid (BAD!!) omega 3
- You are not digesting fats well
If you are not digesting fats well it is important to get down to the root cause. Feel free to contact me via email to discuss options as that is beyond the scope of this blog.
Choosing the right omega 3 is important for supporting your healthy – especially brain health!
Are your aware that many omega 3’s on the market may be rancid and/or contain contaminants such as heavy metals?
Here are 3 key things to look for when buying omega 3’s:
- Use a reputable company that conducts potency testing as well as testing for contaminants and heavy metals.
- Look for a quality guarantee with verified testing information to ensure purity.
- Ensure that there is adequate EPA/DHA in the product.
What are omega 3’s?
These are a type of fat that have many health benefits in the human body. The brain itself is made up of approximately 65% fats, mostly EPA and DHA which is found in fish oils. Omega 3 fatty acids have also been shown to lower blood pressure, decrease inflammation, support eye health, and support healthy moods.
Taking omega 3’s is essential – come into my office to learn more and try our OmegAvail Omega 3 products: flavors include Key Lime, Mango Peach and Citrus. They are amazing great tasting and great for all ages!
