Omega-3 Health: More Than Just Fish Oil

Omega-3 Health: More Than Just Fish Oil

The body requires all kinds of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins for optimum health. And in the Standard American Diet (SAD), none are more deficient than Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

An array of critical bodily processes are dependent on these fats for proper function, particularly in the immune system and brain.

From concentration to managing inflammation, peak performance to cardiovascular health, and even fertility, Omega-3 Health is a cornerstone of your vitality and well-being.

It’s All About the Ratio

When it comes to eating healthy fats and oils, what most people don’t realize is that the ratio of the right kinds of fats is what’s really important.

Most experts agree that a ratio of 3 or 4:1 of Omega-6 to Omega-3 is ideal, but most people’s actual intake is more like 20:1, more than 10 times what is necessary.

Unfortunately, many of our sources for healthy Omega-3s are poor: degraded by our food systems, by our polluted environment, by the lack of choices available in restaurants and grocery stores. Unless you’re paying vigilant attention to your dietary fat intake, you’re probably out of balance.

You probably need more Omega-3s.

This is where supplementation can make all the difference.

The Fatty Brain

The human brain is made of over 60% fats, so making sure you have enough of the right kind of fats in your diet is clearly important.

Omega-3 Fatty acids are used in everything from cell membranes to signaling. They make up the very structure of your neurons and glial support cells. They are used to make steroids, hormones and other key molecules that help your nervous system function smoothly and efficiently.

Omega-3s keep your mind in balance. Without them, our mental sharpness and poise suffers, we lose our center and can begin to struggle without even realizing it, putting the blame on other external causes or seeking unnecessary fixes like caffeine or prescription drugs.

What a lot of people don’t realize is that “symptoms” they may be coping with or trying to drug away may simply be a dietary deficiency. Anxiety. Depression. Brain Fog. Scattered attention.

Studies have shown that Omega-3 supplements improve focus, concentration, and lower symptoms of ADD. [1-3]

Consider this against the fact that over 17 million children are on a prescription drug for mental health.

How many of these kids could be kept off of toxic prescription meds with a simple supplement? Or for adults, how many hours of time wasted by scattered, inefficient focus could be saved? How much more present could you be, how much more dialed-in and productive?

Other studies have found that Omega-3 supplementation reduced symptoms of depression by 40%, and even impacts other forms of anxiety and mood disorders. [4, 5] Is life really that bad for the 1 out of 6 Americans on a prescription drug for mental issues?

Or do they just need to look at their SAD (Standard American Diet) food intake and increase some of the essentials that help promote a healthy brain?

Still other studies show that Omega-3s alleviate with the debilitating, degenerative effects of dementia. [6]

It makes you wonder, have you monitored your fat intake lately?

Are you getting enough? Your kids? Your loved ones?

At BodyHealth, we’ve put together the most advanced, high-quality Omega-3 supplement available to optimize your brain health:

Omega 3 Health.

The Inflammation Chill Pill

In addition to optimum brain health, Omega-3 Health has been specifically designed to help manage inflammation.

Chronic inflammation is at the root of dozens of diseases. And those are just the ones we know of.

Rheumatoid Arthritis. IBS, Ulcers, and other digestive issues. Autoimmune disorders. Degenerative brain conditions like Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s, just to name a few of the most prominent ones. In all of these conditions, a uniting theme in their etiology is chronic inflammation leading to extensive oxidative damage that ultimately destroys tissues and creates symptoms.

This accumulation of oxidative damage in your skin, cardiovascular system, brain, and DNA is at the root of the degeneration and disease associated with aging.

It’s even the source of muscle fatigue and recovery time. The exercise induces inflammation, which in turn causes oxidative damage and wears down your muscle tissue. By managing inflammation and oxidative damage, recovery time is improved and athletic performance can sustain longer peaks.

Address the root cause, and the symptoms disappear.

Omega-3 fatty acids on their own are an important building block for the molecules that prevent inflammation from raging out of control, so just simple supplementation can help prevent many conditions associated with inflammation.

Nature’s Most Powerful Anti-Inflammatories in One

Our Omega-3 Health, however, takes it several steps further.

The natural anti-inflammatory action of fish oil is bolstered by our proprietary Inflame-Arrest blend. It contains the most powerful natural anti-inflammatories available in a formulation specially designed to maximize their absorption into your body and increase their bioavailability.

Turmeric, Astaxanthin, Boswellia (Frankincense), and Ginger.

Each of these individually are powerhouses of medicinal benefits thoroughly documented by the latest scientific research. Together, their combined synergy makes Inflame-Arrest an incredibly potent and completely natural aid to manage inflammation. And all with NO side effects.

Astaxanthin , for example, is not only nature’s most powerful antioxidant, it also protects the fish oil itself, ensuring a longer shelf life without preservatives.

Turmeric and Boswellia have different mechanisms of action on the inflammatory process, making the two of them combined far more effective than either alone.

Ginger has it’s own anti-inflammatory benefits and also increases circulation, helping the medicinal compounds gain better access to where your body needs them.

Purity of Process, Purity of Source

Sourcing is often an overlooked issue in supplements, but with Omega-3s it is every bit as important as the oils themselves. “Fish Oil” really only means oil derived from fish. But there are lots of kinds of fish out there, and not all of them are rich in Omega-3s like DHA and EPA.

The best sources are cold water fatty fish—the cold water increases their oil content—like salmon, herring, white fish, sardines, and anchovies.

And then there’s the ecological factors. Many fish, especially those higher up in the food chain, have toxic levels of heavy metals like mercury, lead and cadmium that destroy your health.

Some fisheries, like Tuna and Atlantic cod are so over-fished they near the brink of collapse. Irresponsible fishing practices have destroyed the fishery and are having dramatic consequences on the ecology.

Do you know where your Fish Oil is coming from?

Here at BodyHealth we are committed to holistic health and ecological integrity. We source all our fish oil from sustainably harvested sardines, anchovies, mackerel, and herring. The cold Icelandic water ensures the highest Omega-3 oil content and these fish are lower on the food chain so they don’t accumulate heavy metals like many other species. Further, these fish exist in huge schools and the fisheries are robust so harvesting doesn’t negatively impact the native ecology.

We’ve done the research and this is the best possible source available for DHA- and EPA-rich fish oil that doesn’t harm our oceans.

We even use a proprietary processing method to ensure environmental toxins and other contaminants are completely removed, leaving you with just the purest fish oil available, rich in DHA and EA, the two Omega-3s with the widest range of health benefits.

If you search for “energy supplement” on amazon, you get over 4,000 results. 

4,000!

How can any reasonable human sift through all that and find the ones that work? Or which ones are bogus? 

I did a deep dive into the truth about increasing your energy” in another article. It gives you a framework for understanding how real energy supplements work and why.

But here I want to do something different. 

I want to get practical and tactical with 10 proven ways to boost energy production in your cellular energy factories –– your mitochondria.

We’ll start with the lifestyle and dietary ways to boost your mitochondria and then look at a few powerful supplements.

The Truth About Increasing "Energy"
The Truth About Increasing "Energy"

by Dr. David Minkoff October 24, 2019 5 min read

Your average health food store has an entire section devoted to “energy.”

The products on the shelf, with their fancy logos and specially designed packaging, make grandiose claims about what they will do for your “energy levels.”

But the truth?

Most of them are stimulants in disguise, artificially jacking you up to give you the sensation of energy.

But in the end, they do more harm than good. They increase cortisol, cause dehydration, and deplete you.

Because almost none of them do anything on the biological level that supports your real energy system: your mitochondria and metabolism.

That’s why in this article I want to show you what to look for with any new supplement.... and why.

From Sabotage to Success: Navigating the Last 6 Weeks of the Year
From Sabotage to Success: Navigating the Last 6 Weeks of the Year

by CJ Hitz October 24, 2019 5 min read

It’s the “most wonderful time of the year” according to Andy Williams. Or should it be the most wonderFULL time of the year? I’m referring to the last 6 weeks of the year which is fraught with one nutritional landmine after another.

Let’s face it, things like pumpkin pie, stovetop stuffing, eggnog, pumpkin-spiced lattes, peanut brittle, homemade fudge, and divinity only make their appearance during this brief window so we might as well gorge ourselves with as much as we can, right?

No wonder the average American gains 2 to 5 pounds (or more) over the holidays. You’d think we were part bear by eating all…the…things before going into several months of hibernation. Unfortunately, this is a major reason people gradually gain weight over the course of years and decades. Gaining weight is easy while losing it is another story.
