Aloha Fit 4 Maui Ohana!
We are heading into glorious Summer and it’s time to take advantage of all that fresh grown produce out there. I am always in favor of getting vital nutrients from whole fresh foods rather than synthetic supplements and there’s no better time to practice this way of eating than right now. One mega-important supplement I take (because it’s very difficult to get the recommended daily allowance) is FISH OIL.
A therapeutic dose (1TBS daily) of high-quality fish oil profoundly changed my health and wellbeing by delivering me from several inflammatory disorders, including alopecia areata, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and painful joints.
Regular recommended dosage to maintain good health is 1 tsp daily.
“You should eat two to three servings a week of low-mercury, fatty fish like wild-caught salmon, sardines, anchovies, and herring. If your access is limited or you’re not a fish fan, fish oil supplementation can help you get the essential omega-3 fatty acids like EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which your body needs in order to thrive—and which most Americans are deficient in.”
Here are a few other reasons why fish oil could be your new best friend!
1. Put a Spring in Your Step
When it comes to maintaining youth, fish oil comes in handy, not only for its anti-inflammatory properties, but also because it helps slow cellular aging in part by preserving the length of your telomeres, the all-important tips of your chromosomes that protect them from fraying.
2. Got Cramps?
If menstrual cramps get you down on a regular basis, resist the urge to take fistfuls of Advil, which can, among other things, lead to liver damage and a leaky gut. A smarter and healthier solution might be to increase your fish oil intake.
3. Show Your Heart Some TLC
Studies have shown fish oil supplements help reduce triglyceride levels, which play a key role in overall cardiovascular health.
4. Take the Edge Off Menopause Symptoms
Menopause is a perfectly natural part of the aging process, but for many women, it has a number of downsides, among them increased risk of postmenopausal heart disease and hot flashes. The good news is that both can be helped by fish oil supplementation, along with other healthy habits like diet and exercise.
5. Boost Your Testosterone Levels
By upping fish oil intake, you’ll help tame inflammation, which, in addition to all the other problems inflammation triggers, tends to drag testosterone levels south in both men and women.
In short, fish oil is one of those gifts of nature everyone should take advantage of. Just check with your doc first to make sure it doesn’t interfere with any drugs you may be taking, including aspirin.
The Superfood Store @ Fit 4 Maui has 3 types of fish oil to chose from!
NanoEPA Lemon, Omega Big Squeeze Lemon, or Pure Omega Plus Citrus Mango.
NONE of these have a fishy after taste and ALL are more bio-available (usable by the body) than fish oil pills.
