‘6 MUST KNOW’S’ : How to Choose Your Omega Fish Oil Supplement

  1. Does your oil contain Omega 6 ?

baked-1549171_1920You don’t need any more. Your Omega fish oil supplement should not contain any Omega 6.

Om6 is pro-inflammatory (promotes it) & it is highly likely you already have enough of it in your blood.

Main sources of Om6 are :

NOTE: Do not ingest any more Omega 6

 

2. Should it contain more EPA or DHA ?

Both EPA & DHA are amazingly good for you. Studies in fact show that DHA has even more health benefits than EPA.

Particularly for your brain & eyes.

NOTE: You want a supplement higher in DHA to EPA.

 

3. Capsules or Liquid?

You want your oil to be in a liquid form. Why? One reason is it will be purer & gone through less handling.

The second reason is that in the heating of the capsules in order to seal them a portion of the DHA is lost to the heat. The more heat process the oil is put through the less fresh it will be.

As mentioned you want as much DHA to remain as possible.

NOTE: Make sure your oil is in liquid form

 

4. How pure is your oil ?

All oils in the UK must pass stringent tests to be fit for human consumption. The industry standard in Scandinavia (where the best fish comes from) is the TOTOX Value.

Totox stands for total oxidation & assures that the oil is pure & fresh. Basically how many toxins are in the oil & how quickly is it ageing.

Clearly you want the purest oil with as little toxins present as possible & you want it to be fresh.

TIP: The more fishy smelling an oil becomes the less fresh it is.

In the Uk all oils must score 10 or below on the Totox Value. This should be public information but not all companies release this information easily. (I wonder why?)

The lower the score on the Totox the cleaner, purer & fresher the oil.

It is fit for human consumption if you see on the shelves in the Uk but the closer to 10 on the Totox score the less pure it is.

I think of it like this: a drop of arsenic each day wont kill me but it certainly isn’t doing me any good. Combine that with all the other toxins coming in & over the years of accumulation it could become a problem…. The purer the better.

NOTE: Only use the lowest scoring oil from the Totox Test. If a company wont tell you that information DON’T TAKE THEIR OIL.

 

5. How much should a quality oil cost ?

For a decent oil expect to invest £30-£40 per bottle.

This is one area where a little extra is worth it. You could choose to save a pound or two per month but be wasting your money if its optimal health, vitality & wellness you are in search of.

There are some excellent oils out there for around £1 per day – what is your health & happiness worth to you ?

NOTE: £1 per day could save you many aches, pains & potential risk to diseases especially as you age.

 

6. How do I know I need it & how much should I take ?

Most people take Omega supplements blind: They don’t know their Omega status & don’t know if the product is doing them more harm than good AND if the product is doing anything at all !

There are some extremely simple ways to test your Omega status these days & combine that with the other facts above you will know exactly how much you need & for how long.

NOTE: Get the simple cost effective test & correct your Omega levels asap. Your health, energy & performance could depend on it.

 

To conclude…

If you were to prioritise your budget to ‘which supplement will give me the most bang for my buck?’ then TWO jump out & every health care practitioner will tell you the same:

  1. Multi vitamin
  2. Omega supplement

3 Why’s Fish Oil should be your FIRST supplement

1 Why: Helps Combat EVERY disease…

You can google Fish oil and ‘ X ‘ (any disease). You’ll find reams of pages (average 1,750,000) & studies supporting the fact that fish oil helps to reduce the risk to whatever disease you type.

The benefits are FAR REACHING.

So a question you could be having right now is How do I know I need it? The answer is testing. If you don’t know your Omega status it is well worth finding out.

The further you are away from a ratio of 2:1 (Omega6:Omega3) the higher your risk to illness, ailments & disease. (I’ll show you a streamlined way to test & perfect your status in the quickest time possible at the end of this article)

 

2 Why: Fat Loss..

Again you can do your own research on Google which will pull up just under 5,000,000 pages of data supporting fish oil supplementation & fat loss.

If you want to look & feel your best for something that takes less than 30 seconds a day then fish oil supplementation is a no brainer.

The only question you should have is ‘ Which the best product & how much does it cost? ‘ (I’ll give you a genius option at a highly competetive price the end of this article…)

 

3 Why: Builds Muscle & Lowers Inflammation…

There is a more recent term coming through called ‘ INLAMMAGEING ‘ linking the rate of ageing with inflammation.

Bottom line is the more we control inflammation, think painful joints, digestive issues, outbreaks of rashes & acne on the skin, the longer we keep our youthful looks & vibrancy.

At the same time we get to build more muscle which is one of the top determinants of longevity. Fact is the more muscle you have the more calories you’ll burn (even at rest) so basically put the more muscle you have the less likely you will get fatter !

Blood PH – Why Is It Important To Me?

The pH balance of your blood is an essential element to keep your body healthy.  It is critical that your body be balanced between alkaline & acidity in order to keep your internal systems running optimally.

There are a number of systems affected by the pH Balance of your blood, including:

  • Your Circulatory System – Acidity is the primary cause of heart disease. The body responds to a high level of acidity in the blood by lining the blood vessels with fatty plaque to prevent leaks – but what this also does is force the heart wo work harder to push blood through narrowing veins.  The smaller the veins are, the more the heart strains & the more likely you are to have a heart attack!

 

  • Your Digestive System – Indigestion, nausea, bloating & gastric reflux are all symptoms of the gastric region missing a certain level of alkaline minerals in the intestinal tract. If the alkaline materials are not built up through enzyme rich foods the pancreas wears down & loses the ability to categorise foods & send materials to the correct areas of the body.

 

  • Your Immune System – A healthy pH balance in the gut can help to support positive probiotics, creates immune cells in the lymph system, destroys invading bacteria in the intestines & helps to create white blood cells.

 

  • Your Respiratory System – The transportation of oxygen can be easily hindered by an overload of acidity in the blood. When there is too much acidity, the cells cannot breathe properly & the body cannot clear out carbon dioxide effectively.  In this case, as carbon dioxide builds, waste builds up in the form of mucus & infection & can cause viruses in the lungs which can lead to common colds, bronchitis, asthma & a variety of other health problems.

 

  • Your Nervous System – Too much acidity can weaken the nervous system & can drain you physically, mentally & emotionally.

 

  • Your Muscular System – Acidity in muscles can disrupt the metabolism breakdown of glucose & oxygen which the muscles use for energy. In other words, the muscles do not get enough fuel in an acidic environment, leaving you feeling weak, tired & unable to perform.  Also, this affects your body’s ability to recover after strenuous exercise leading you to breathe heavily & feel exhausted.

 

 

Imbalanced pH can also affect the Reproductive Systems with:

  • Decreased arousal
  • Decreased sexual enjoyment
  • Decreased fertility
  • Increased chances of miscarriage

 

Imbalance can also increase your chances of developing conditions such as:

  • Cataracts
  • Osteoporosis
  • Gout
  • Migraines
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Allergies
  • Obesity
  • Constipation
  • Skin problems: pimples, rash, etc.
  • Inflammation

…& more.

Acid/Alkalinity of blood…

The pH scale goes from 0-14.  A neutral pH is 7.0, greater than 7.0 means that your blood is more alkaline & a number lower than 7.0 means that your blood is more acidic.  pH changes throughout your body, for example your saliva will be one pH while urine will be much more acidic.

To keep all of you systems functioning at peak performance it is important that your body maintain a pH between 7.36 & 7.45.   While this seems basic enough, even the smallest change can take a great deal of effort to reverse.  For example:  it takes 10 times the amount of alkalinity to neutralise an acid.

 

 

How to Measure Your pH

Your pH can be measured with a simple at-home test.  Tests can be purchased online or may be available at your local pharmacy.  Some tests read your levels from your saliva while others test your urine.

How To Correct an Imbalance

How do you manage your pH levels?  By what you eat!

In fact, if you are imbalanced it is most likely as a result of eating poorly!  As you would expect, foods packed with vitamins & nutrients are helpful in balancing pH while greasy & fried foods help to boost the acidity level in your body.  – Just one more reason to eat healthy!
