Have you heard about Fish Oil?

Yes...I did say Fish Oil!

Any one who spends anytime at all with us know that we are big cheerleaders for the Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil (Omega-3 Fatty Acids) trend. We are not taking about the fish oil that your Mom used to make you take when you were a kid and the rest of the day you you had fish burps!

It is being marketed as the big miracle cure for just about everything. Now I am pretty skeptical about things that are supposed to fix everything so I don't usually jump on the bandwagon for all of these things but I have to tell you we have been taking it for about a year now and really have never felt better. My skin feel better, my hair looks better, my blood pressure is borderline low (this was from borderline high) and I have lost weight! This is just how it has visibly helping me. The benefits of the Omega-3's are well documented and extensive: protection against heart disease and stroke, lowered bad cholesterol (Tony's was 375 now it is normal), lowered triglycerides, increased level of good cholesterol, reduced risk for diabetes, improved joint and bone health, relief from depressive disorders and ADHD, support in treatment of eating disorders, improved skin, improved recovery from burns,a lowered risk for some cancers. Omega-3s are also beneficial for treating asthma, macular degeneration, menstrual pain and any conditions linked with inflammation.

We take Omega-3 pharmaceutical grade Fish Oil daily as do the children (and the dogs but that is another story altogether). My youngest daughter has been able to greatly improved her ability to concentrate which is attributed directly to the Omega -3 Fish Oil!

I know that I have emphasized the fact that it is pharmaceutical grade Omega-3 fish oil but that is a very important factor in this mix. If you walk into your local health food store and buy fish oil you are doing yourself a huge disservice. The pharmaceutical grade removes all of the toxic heavy metals that we would naturally get from eating the fish (mercury, lead etc). Therefore you are left with a purer, healthier product. You also don't get the fish burps all day long (nice by product of the purifying).

To your good health!!!
