If you’ve taken a trip to the grocery store lately, you may have noticed that your bread, milk, even your peanut butter is touting a new phrase: “Now with added omega-3!” Omega-3 fats, most typically found in fish oils, are more popular now than ever thanks to recent findings about their support of heart, circulatory, skin, respiratory, eye, and brain health.
The American Heart Association and the FDA have both given omega-3 fatty acids their endorsement. In fact, the American Heart Association has been recommending fish oil supplementation to heart patients since as early as 2002.
Though the benefits of omega-3 fish oils are wide-reaching, consumers should note that not all omega-3 supplements are created equal. When choosing a fish oil supplement, you must consider the freshness of the fish oil as one of the most important factors. In fact, fish oil can be so fragile that some cultures prefer to buy live fish to avoid dangerous rancidity. This rancidity can invite millions of harmful free radicals into your system. To avoid this potentially harmful side effect, a fish oil supplement is best when it is strengthened with natural antioxidants to preserve and protect freshness. In addition, consumers should stay away from supplements with concentrated fish oils that have been overly processed.
Enter Young Living’s best-selling Omega Blue™ with pure fish oil and Omega Enhance™. Omega Blue provides clinically proven omega-3 fatty acids that are harvested from fish raised in environments free of pollutants, dioxins, PCBs, pesticides, and heavy metals. Young Living’s Omega Enhance preservation system—a blend of pure blue chamomile, lemongrass, clove, and myrrh essential oils—increases the shelf life by up to ten times, ensuring freshness not only throughout preparation but also during metabolism in the body. Precision Delivery softgels then release in the intestines for three times the absorption with no fishy aftertaste.
So the next time you see a cereal box or concentrated supplement bottle asserting its omega-3 health properties, you’ll be able to sit back and relax, knowing that you’re already getting the pure, clean essential fatty acids your body needs.
