FRESH FROM THE SEA
There are very few pills that we think are worth their weight. Fish Oil is one supplement we’re believers in because the research shows its effectiveness. We’ve always believed the role of supplements are indeed to supplement (or fill the holes) that modern diets and lifestyle can leave. Fish oil fills a big hole in our modern diet.
Whereas Omega-3 is found in fish and flaxseeds, Omega-6 is prevalent in meats, butters as well as nuts. Our bodies work their best when the ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 is 1:1. Unfortunately, many of us tend to eat far more meat and dairy products than fish and flaxseeds. Research has shown that high levels of Omega-6 fatty acids relative to Omega-3 fatty acids are linked to many (and we mean many) chronic diseases like heart disease and insulin resistance.
Not all fish oil supplements are created equal. It’s not the size of the pill, but the concentration of EPA and DHA fatty acids that indicates the quality of the product. There are some ‘major’ brands on the market whose concentrations are as little as ~50mg of each per pill. By comparison, our pills each contain 432mg of EPA and 288mg of DHA.
