If I could only afford to buy one supplement, it would be some form of Omega 3.
The health benefits of Omega 3 are virtually endless. And since most of us have a difficult time getting sufficient Omega 3, supplementing is an excellent idea.
I can’t remember who said this – it was a doctor or nutritionist – but their quote was “Omega 3 is used by every cell in your body.”
Omega 3 is also brain fuel. Eight percent of your brain is comprised of EPA/DHA, so it’s important to consume sufficient quantities for optimal alertness, energy levels, and concentration.
Omega 3 also has strong anti-inflammatory effects, is great for cardiovascular health, and also helps in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
Whole foods rich in Omega 3 are flax seed, fatty fish – like salmon – and walnuts. [A sad problem with salmon is a lot of it is contaminated with mercury and other toxins.] If you don’t get a lot of these whole foods in your daily diet, then consider fish oil and / or flax seed.
Most people should aim for a minimum of 1 gram of EPA/DHA – taken three times a day with food. When buying omega-3 fish oil supplements, look for a high EPA/DHA level on the container (50% + at a minimum).
Athletes and those looking to add muscle should consume a minimum of 10 grams a day. [Since that would mean a lot of fish oil tablets, I mostly use ground flax [look for cold milled] which I mix into my daily whey protein shake, my nightly casein protein shake, and sometimes into my pre / post workout drinks [creatine, taurine, arginine, and branch chain aminos.]
As always, I hope this helps – and remember you’re not just changing your body – you’re taking control in a world that wants to keep you beholden to as many unhealthy choices as possible.
The changes you’ll see in the mirror don’t alter your life…
It’s breaking the chains of what’s keeping you from your best life…
It’s the clarity to see unhealthy things as the are, and having the courage to do something about them…
It’s the ability to easily make decisions that are in the long term best interest of your health and happiness…
These new skills – that only taking control of your health can give you – are what changes your life and future in ways you can’t begin to imagine [and are skills that can NEVER be taken away from you, regardless of what the future holds].
And remember, while correct nutrition and exercise information is critical, what matters is being able to take that information and put it to use, which is what The New Body New Life Program will help you do.
To your health and success, and may God bless,
