Add Omega-3 Oil

My Naturopath gave me high quality Omega-3 oil supplement “to keep my body oily” as she said. Omega-3 oil that is found in oily fish is also very good for a healthy brain and for calm nerves.

Calming Your Nerves
I have seen a report on BBC that has shown how cab drivers become much calmer in dealing with the stressful hassle and bustle of their day job after they add oily fish to their diet for six weeks. I mean that’s amazing!

Reducing Heart Attacks
Omega-3 ranks among the most important essential nutrients out there today. A study of heart attack survivors found that patients supplementing with fish oils markedly reduced their risk of another heart attack, stroke, or death.

The Good and Bad Omega
You might be confused by some of the talk about good and bad Omegas.  Actually, Omega 6s have been touted as the bad guys, but they are not the villain we make them out to be – they just get a bad wrap because we get too many of them and not enough Omega-3s to balance them out!

Why Omega-3s?
Omega-3s are good for heart health and have many other positive benefits such as a reduction in inflammation for arthritis sufferers, they help reduce depression and have been shown to protect us against Alzheimer’s disease.

Sources of Omega-3s
So how do you get more Omega-3s into your diet?  Great sources are grass-fed beef, salmon, halibut and tuna.   Other good options include avocado, flax seed, walnuts and almonds.

Recommendations
Try to get 2 – 3 servings of Omega-3 foods in your diet each week.
