Omega Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids are required for our health. Our bodies cannot make them on our own, which means we have to get them from our diet, or supplement with them. These include omegas.

When many people think of the omegas, (omega 3, 6 and 9) they think of fish oil. I do not eat fish very often at all. Salmon I eat maybe once a year, and tuna maybe 3 times a year. I have a mild allergy to shellfish so I don't bother eating them at all.

And also you hear about how farmed fish is horrible for you, and how there are mercury and other heavy metals in the fish.... not to mention taking supplements and worrying about fish burps at work.

So I tried Omega-3 Supreme Fish Oil. They may look similar to other fish oil supplements but they seem to be superior.  They have more than 75% Omega-3s and they are sourced from wild Alaskan caught polluck in a sustainable and certified operation.

The pills are enteric coating which helps absorption, and also helps you -- HAVE NO FISH BURPS!! The pills are easy to swallow, not as large as some of the others I have used in the past.

Some of the benefits of essential fatty acids include:
  • cardiovascular health
  • joint support - shown to reduce inflammation!
  • brain health
  • helps with cholesterol
  • improved circulation

I take fish oil every day, and also feed it to my dog. It improves his coat, however it also helps prevent arthritis. He is at high risk right now so it is important to take care of him.
