Who Promotes Omega 3?

Omega 3, Fish Oil.... Who Promotes It?

- Well, Doctor Barry Sears, he is one of the fore fathers of recognizing omega 3 and inflammation.

- Doctor Oz is a big promoter of Omega 3.

Why you need supplements? Because unfortunately men has ruined our oceans, and we are limited to the amount of fresh fish we can eat. So, we take supplement in the form of capsules or liquids.

How To Choose Supplements?

- Well, they need to be the purest possible.

- The 2 fatty acids, DHA AND EPA need to be in the right Ratio of 1:2

- Minimum DHA should be 600 mg per/dose

Krill Omega 3 VS Fish Oil Omega 3

First: Fish oil is oil is found in the tissues of oily fish. Actually, and you may be surprised about this, Fish don't produce omega-3 fatty acids, instead they accumulate them by ingesting / eating either microalgae or other prey fish that have consumed, or accumulated omega-3 fatty acids.

Krill are little crustaceans (Euphausiacea),they are found in all of the world's vast oceans. The word Krill means "young fry of fish", and other small fish are also referred to as the same.
Krill are the bottom of the food chain, which also makes them superior!
Fish Oil, and Krill Oil are both good sources of omega-3 fatty acids. But, there are a few differences between the two.

Krill Oil vs Fish Oil In Solubility: Krill oil's omega-3 is in phospholipid form, and fish oil omega-3 is in triglyceride form.

* Phospholipids are easier for your system to absorb. Unlike triglycerides, phospholipids actually are water-soluble, therefore they disperse easily in your small intestine. Because of this they can be absorbed without any bile salts.

Fat-soluble triglycerides however need bile salts so they can be absorbed. Because of this, phospholipids are more easily distributed to our cells and tissues than triglycerides are.

AND, one of the biggest bonuses is: Water solubility of omega 3 means less burping.

A Few Thoughts

Here are some personal thoughts...What is your opinion?

1 Limit your salt.

2 Eat Good Fats
like olive oils, fish oil. DO NOT ever eat Trans Fats, they will kill you. And do limit your saturated fats.

3 Stay away from fast foods and processed foods. If you must eat fast foods, many outlets now also have healthy choices. Go for those.

4 Drop The Pop. Drink cool, clear, clean water (preferably, NOT out of a plastic bottle)

5 DO exercise. Take your dog, your kids, your spouse and go for long walks. Make a picnic, go hiking, or biking.

6 Turn off the TV and sit outside, watch the sunset instead.

Make a better lifestyle for you and your whole family...Omega 3 can be a part of this lifestyle, actually, it should be a part of this lifestyle.

Omega is a health warrior, but, it cannot fight for good health alone.
