Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for BRAIN and HEART health. Um...sounds kinda important, yes? Pretty sure we all want to keep those things in tip top shape! Omega-3’s also supports the body’s proper inflammatory responses, reducing unnecessary inflammation. Fish oil supplements are a great source of Omega-3’s, and did you know the O3’s in our brains are the same as the O3’s in fish oil? Our bodies have a really easy job using fish oil to feed our brains because it doesn’t need to do any sort of conversion to make it work.
How many of you have ever burped up fish oil supplements before? YUCK! This is a sign of rancidity. Fish oil is highly unstable- it goes rancid in your stomach after just 40 minutes! This is why you burp it up. Uh... yuck. Most fish oil out on the market is rancid.
So what can be done about this?
--Get the best quality fish oil you can.
--Look for some helpful additions to the fish oil that help keep it stable, prevent it from becoming rancid, and aid absorption.
The fish oil that YL uses in OmegaGize is molecularly distilled. Molecular distillation ensures the highest quality of fish oil by removing toxins from the oil that are released from the fish during distillation.
Many fish oil producers infuse their fish oil with Vitamin E to help prevent the fish oil from going rancid. But YL also adds Clove EO to their blend to help with this! Clove is at the very top of the ORAC scale (remember ORAC is a scale for reading the levels of antioxidants in food) at over 1 million! German Chamomile and Spearmint round out the special EO blend in OmegaGize. German Chamomile further supports the body’s proper inflammatory responses and Spearmint helps cut down on any fishy burps that might sneak through. In addition to their individual benefits, adding this combination of EOs to OmegaGize increases its absorption rate by 15X!
One last thing: in addition to the amazing benefits of fish oil, OmegaGize also give you 237% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin D. Vitamin D fortifies the immune system and contributes to heart health. We need Vitamin D as we get older and during the winter months when we don’t see the sun as much. This is seriously some amazing stuff! Want to know more about the sourcing and the sardines that the fish oil is distilled from?
