Fish Oil: The most important supplement you should be taking.

Many people ask the benefits of taking supplements or vitamins with your diet. We all know we should be taking a “multivitamin” everyday, but sometimes when we don’t see or feel the benefits of something right away we don’t make it a habit. From scientific studies as well as my own experiences, I want to emphasize the importance of adding Fish Oil supplements to your daily diet. It is a source of omega-3 fatty acids, and is hard to acquire the desired daily dose just through diet (unless you eat a LOT of fish!) Here are just a few reasons why you need to add fish oil to your meals:

– Reduces pain and inflammation.
– Fish oil helps heart conditions and can help prevent heart disease or stroke
– It’s good for the brain! It improves mental focus and has been known to help fight symptoms of ADHD, depression, alzheimer’s disease.
– Omega 3 Fatty acids can prohibit cancer growth
– Helps with weight loss and body fat storage.
– Improves skin condition
– Helps lower blood pressure.
– It’s been used for diabetes, kidney disease, weak bones

How many should I take?

The recommended dose is 2 capsules a day. This is a great place to start, but I take up to 5 capsules throughout the day some days, and I have really found that it has helped me with my skin, as well as reducing pain and inflammation that may or may not have been caused by Beth Phoenix 😉

Which fish oil supplement should I take?

There are a lot of supplements out there. Make sure that when you select a fish oil it has at least 200-400 mg of DHA and EPA per capsule. It should also be “species specific” and list the fish sources it derived from such as salmon, anchovies, tuna, mackerel, or sardines. Here are some good options you can order online, or find at your local GNC or Vitamin Shoppe.
