Quickie Video – Omega 3 Fatty Acids

What are Omega 3 Fatty Acids?

How can we get them in our diet?

What about supplementation?

Do you take Omega 3’s daily?

  • Everyone needs to eat wild caught fish a few times a week.
  • DHA Benefits for brain and eyes

  • Choose supplements carefully. Many omega 3 supplements on the market are already rancid and will CAUSE inflammation. 
  • Don’t just look at the front of the bottle at “mg of fish oil” as the most important numbers are EPA and DHA mg. Look at the amount of EPA and DHA on the back.

Options for supplementation

  • Perque EPA/DHA Guard. 2 capsules = 660mg EPA and 500mg DHA. 
  • Carlson Cod Liver Oil Lemon. 2 tsp = 800mg EPA and 1,000mg DHA.
