Essential Fatty Acids (EFA), good fats or omega-3 fish oil nutrients are essential for living cells to function properly.  

Fish oils have a very high safety profile without adverse effects and Nordic Naturals is always in a natural triglyceride state for your body to easily absorb and utilize.

Here are just some of the benefits Nordic Naturals Fish Oil provide:

★ Heart Health & Hypertension - Fish oil can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels 25 to 30% and puts elasticity in the arteries.

★ Mental Health - Our Brains are 60% essential fatty acid (EFA).  These EFA's help with mental clarity, concentration, focus, memory, ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dementia and Alzheimer's.

★ Pregnancy and infant development - Fish oil helps mom and baby. It’s essential for proper brain and visual development in infants, especially in the third trimester.

★ Joints - Fish oil is like a little WD-40 for your joints and is great to help your body recover from working out.

★ Mood - The DHA portion of fish oil uplifts the mood helping not only with mild depression but also much more serious conditions such as bipolar or schizophrenia.

★ Immune System - Promotes healthy immune response, both chronic and acute. Great for autoimmune diseases.

★ Other Omega 3 Benefits - Cancer Support, Child Development, Eye Health and Helps with quality and longevity of life!


Vegan or vegetarian?

There are great options available for you, too!  See the next post - Fish Oil Part 2.


The furry members of the family reap the same benefits we do.

Just add to food or give as a treat. 


Fish Oil - Part 2

In the previous post I talked about the benefits of fish oil and Omega 3's. For those who are vegan or vegetarian, a wonderful source of Omega 3's is Blue Green Algae. Using Blue Green Algae is like cutting out the middle man (in this case, the fish). Fish are high in EFA due to the algae they eat, so going straight for the algae is a fabulous vegetarian and vegan source with all the benefits.

Some of my favorite brands are:
Ancient Sun -- Blue Manna or Crystal Manna (caps or powder)
Essential Formulas -- Essential Living Oils (which are vegan oils)
Nutrex Hawaii -- Spirullina caps, flakes, powder
Nordic Naturals -- Algae soft gels

FYI: If you're not using the algae in capsules or soft gels, powders and flakes will turn food or a smoothie green. To avoid this (say for children or all days other then St Patrick's Day) mix with a red and blue fruit and it will go from green to mauve.
