If there was one supplement that I would recommend above all others it would be a good quality Omega 3. Why? Glad you asked……here goes.
It’s magic! Ok… that’s obviously an exaggeration, but from all of the scientific studies done and all of the medical research known, omega 3 fish oil supplements are my pick for the closest thing we have to a real life miracle pill. Here are some of its benefits taken directly from MedlinePlus, which is a service of the US National Library of Medicine:
•lowers blood triglyceride levels
•reduces the risk of heart attack
•reduces the risk of dangerous abnormal heart rhythms
•reduces the risk of strokes
•slows the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques
•lowers blood pressure
•reduces stiffness and joint tenderness associated with Rheumatoid arthritis
An omega 3 fish oil supplement may also help improve or prevent the following:
•Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
It has also been shown to improve a person’s ability to concentrate and just think clearer in general. And, as if all of this isn’t enough, fish oil is also highly recommended by nearly every well respected strength and conditioning coach, trainer, and diet/fitness/nutrition expert of any kind as one of the few supplements that should be taken by anyone with the goal of building muscle, losing fat, or improving their fitness level or athletic ability in any capacity.
So there you have it – it’s a no brainer! Just make sure you get a good quality one. In the world of supplements it really is a case of ‘you get what you pay for.’ I synthetically produced one just wont provide the benefits an organic product can. Personally I take Natures Sunshine Super Omega-3 EPA as it is a far more potent, and more competitive product compared to others on the market. I also have Udos Choice Ultimate Oil Blend in my shake each day.
