A basic of health and beauty

Unless you have been living in vacuum over the past few years, there is no doubt that you would have witnessed the rise of fish oil.....and with good cause. There are so many reported health benefits with the consumption of fish oil, that literally everyone would gain a health benefit from daily intake. I am a HUGE fan of fish oil and it is the first supplement that I recommend, and in fact I actually don't think of it as a supplement but a basic food item.

If all you are interested in is looking better, the anti inflammatory properties will work wonders on your skin. As with most things you get what you pay for , so I use a high concentrate liquid fish oil with high levels of DHA and EPA per serve. You should buy your fish oil from a health food store, and liquid is always better than capsules. However I also use capsules for when I am travelling or during the day.

Depending on how I am feeling I usually consume about 20-30gm fish oil per day to keep me at my best. There is a mountain of research on the benefits of fish oil and some include;
  • Promotes healthy mental/emotional states

  • Supports brain/central nervous system conditions

  • Promotes glucose and insulin balance

  • Supports cardiovascular.. immune and gastrointestinal conditions, and
  • Anti-inflammatory

I have just recently discovered your blog, but I am addicted already. I love everything you write, it is very informative. I know Charles Poliquin, isn't he something else?!!? My coach has all the certifications with him too.

I'll go start your blog from the beginning now... :)
