  • 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, most people don't realize that the ratio of the right kinds of fats is really important.

    Most experts agree that a ratio of 3:1 or 4:1 of Omega-6 to Omega-3 is ideal, but average American intake is more like 20:1 – over ten times more than needed.

    Unfortunately, many of our sources for healthy Omega-3s are poor, degraded by modern food manufacturing processes, by our polluted environment, and 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 ensuring 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 suffer. We lose our center and can begin to struggle without even realizing it, blaming other external causes, or seeking unnecessary fixes like caffeine or prescription drugs.

    Many people don't realize 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 and concentration while lowering symptoms of ADD. [1-3]

    Consider this when considering 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 can reduce symptoms of depression by 40% and even impacts other forms of anxiety and mood disorders. [4, 5] Is life really that bad for the one out of six 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?

    Further studies show that Omega-3s alleviates 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.

    Caution: Consult your Health Care Practitioner before taking this product if you are pregnant, nursing, anticipate surgery, take medication, or are under medical supervision.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Will Omega 3 Health give me fishy burps?

    A: Most instances of fish-burp come from taking too high a dose too soon. Omega 3 Health addresses this problem by using a time-release enteric coating that dissolves in the small intestine instead of the stomach, virtually eliminating the possibility of unpleasant burping. We also recommend taking Omega 3 Health with a meal.


    Q: Are there any contraindications for Omega 3 Health?

    A: Yes. Fish oil has a blood-thinning effect, which is generally beneficial for cardiovascular health but can interact with other prescription blood-thinning medications. Consult your doctor before supplementing with fish oil if you are taking any prescription anticoagulants like warfarin (Coumadin), rivaroxaban, or apixaban. You should also avoid fish oil before going into surgery.


    Q: How should I take Omega 3 Health?

    A: The recommended dose of Omega 3 Health is two gel capsules per day with a meal.


    Q: What is Inflam-Arrest, and why is it in your Omega 3 Health fish oil?

    A: Inflam-Arrest is our proprietary blend of turmeric, Boswellia (frankincense), and ginger extracts. Fish oil is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and these plants are some of the most powerful anti-inflammatory agents out there. Combining them in our Omega 3 Health formulation creates a synergistic anti-inflammatory cocktail that provides you the highest health benefits possible.


    Q: Why is your fish oil pink instead of yellow?

    A: We add astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant to protect the fish oil from oxidation, and improve shelf life. This same chemical is responsible for the pink color of salmon and crab.


    Q: I'm vegetarian/vegan. What about other plant-based sources of Omega 3s like flax?

    A: Plant-based sources of Omega 3s like flax and chia seeds mostly contain a fatty acid called ALA. The beneficial effects of Omega 3s come primarily from EPA and DHA (found mostly in fish oil). Herbivores that eat grasses are very good at converting ALA to DHA, but for us humans, it requires a tremendous amount of biochemical processing for your body to convert ALA into DHA, so the benefit gained from plant-based sources is relatively low. There are algae-based sources of Omega 3s, but these do not contain EPA and are currently not cost-effective for the amount of oil they yield.


    Q: What should I look for in a fish oil brand?

    A: The most important thing to look for in a fish oil supplement is the ingredients' purity and quality. Make sure there are no added ingredients like soy, sweeteners, or other filler oils. Also, check the total amount of EPA and DHA per serving.

    Our Omega 3 Health supplement is of the highest purity and quality, with specially added formulations to improve potency and shelf life.


    Q: Are there any side effects of fish oil?

    A: There are very few adverse side effects of fish oil. It does thin the blood, so those with blood coagulation issues should consult a doctor before taking fish oil. At higher doses, it can cause loose or oily bowel movements.


    Q: What if I take too much?

    A: You may experience some heartburn or have a loose, oily bowel movement, but otherwise, there is no "overdosing" on fish oil.


    Q: What about mercury and heavy metals in the fish oil?

    A: Heavy metals accumulate in species high in the food chain, like swordfish and tuna, and tend to affect warm water fish more than cold-water fish. Our fish oil comes from sardines and anchovies in the Arctic ocean. These fish are relatively low in the food chain and live in a cleaner, colder ecosystem.

    In addition to the purity of our sourcing, we also process our oil with a patented process to remove any detectable heavy metal contamination.


    Q: I am concerned about the health of our oceans. Are the fish sustainably harvested?

    A: 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. These fish exist in huge schools, and the fisheries are very robust, so harvesting doesn't negatively impact the native ecology.


    Q: What about supplements that include Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids?

    A: Our diets are already oversaturated with Omega 6 fatty acids, and there is little research backing up the benefits of Omega 9 fatty acids. The most significant benefit from a fatty acid supplement is from Omega 3's, and specifically EPA and DHA.

    Caution: Consult your Health Care Practitioner before taking this product if you are pregnant, nursing, anticipate surgery, take medication, or are under medical supervision.
