Are you taking your omega-3’s?
Omega-3 fatty acids are the “good” fats that can be found in foods such as fish, nuts, canola and sunflower oil. Our bodies are not able to produce omega-3, and you’d have to consume an enormous amount of these foods to obtain the optimal dosage.
Omega-3 (EPA & DHA) supplements can help lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer, as well as lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol. Their benefits are numerous and include reducing inflammation, improving mental health and boosting your immune system. Omega-3 is also great for your hair, skin and vision!
It’s important to do your research when searching for omega-3 supplements. There are 3 forms of omega-3: Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Supplements will have different ratios according to what your needs are.
Omega-3 supplements should be mercury-free without the fishy taste, or the burping up of fish oil. Purity is extremely important to us. We tried some samples of omega-3 capsules from different companies, and even though we took them with food, we couldn’t get over the burping! This was clearly a sign of an inferior product! Never again!
Which brings me to NutraSea products by Ascenta … I’m excited to share our favorite omega-3 supplement, which was highly recommended by our Naturopathic Doctor, and we’ve been taking it every single day for over eight years.
We take regular NutraSea, which comes in lemon and mango flavors. Both flavors are great, and the oil has a clean and slightly flavored taste. We usually buy the lemon flavor as it comes in a 500 ml bottle which is more economical. One teaspoon contains a total of 1500 mg of total omega-3 fatty acids. 1250 mg is guaranteed to absorb into our bodies. NutraSea | Ascenta has different omega-3 products.
Visit NutraSea to read more and find one that is right for you and your family. I am sure you will love and trust their products as much as we do! More importantly, Ascenta products are third-party tested and certified for quality and purity. You can even enter the lot number of your NutraSea product on Ascenta’s website to obtain a quality test result!
Some people may think of omegas as omega 3-6-9. The important omegas are omega-3 and omega-6 (6 in moderation).
