‘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

The Way To A Man’s Heart (& A Women’s) Is Through Their Stomach…

lose-weight-1911605_1920

The old sayings are the best – & usually accurate!

 

Prebiotics are the food that your live ‘good’ bacteria feed off.

 

Feed them well & they increase in numbers & you’ll feel more energised for it.

 

Don’t feed them (starve them) & you’ll suffer with more digestive & nutritional issues, fat gain, mood disturbances & lower performance levels.

 

 

Common prebiotics include:

 

1)

Inulin

Naturally occurring polysaccharides (sugars).

 

Most commonly found in chicory. A natural fibre that links with the processing, journey & storage of carbohydrates through your body.

 

You can easily take this as a supplement these days.

 

 

 

2)

Fructooligosaccharides (FOS)

A naturally occurring fibre in the same group as Inulin.

Helps feed the Bifidobacteria species. Bifidobacteria are considered beneficial bacteria for healthy gut & colon.

Where can you get it from?:

  • Jerusalem artichoke
  • Chicory root
  • Leeks
  • Onions
  • Garlic

 

 

 

3)

Galactooligosaccharides (GOS)

Non-digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by stimulating the growth and/or activity of beneficial bacteria in the colon.

 

 

4)

Lactulose

A non-absorbable sugar used in the treatment of constipation

 

 

 

Good Prebiotic Foods:

 

Jerusalem artichokes

 

Garlic

 

Chicory

 

Onions

 

Dandelion greens.

 

Leeks

 

Asparagus.

 

Bananas (remember to always balance your higher GI carb intake & get the timing of high GI carb intake just right to remain in an optimal physical state)

 

 

 

 

Turbulence…

When you first begin to take on extra prebiotics you may experience some flatulence or gas.

This is your internal environment re-adjusting & is not cause for concern. The disturbance should not last longer than five days.

After which you will notice an improvement in your digestion, energy levels, sleep patterns & your general well-being should improve.

 

 

Bottom Line…

Sprinkle these foods into your next shop & add them to your meals for improved digestive health which will result in clearer skin, better concentration, improved sleep, increased performance levels & much more.

You can also supplement these & dietary fibre very easily at an affordable cost.

You can’t go too far wrong with fibre supplementation so ask for the best at your local health store or grab some online. For example Psyllium Husks are a good source of supplemental fibre, take 15 grams (approx 1 large tablespoon) in the morning & in the evening.

 

Keep up the good work…. To Your Best Health

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 !

10 Benefits of Whey Protein

Milk is made up of two different proteins: casein & whey.  Whey is the liquid part of milk that is leftover in the process of making cheese.

 

The History of Whey Protein …

Who started using it?  The Greeks….over 24 centuries ago!  Hippocrates, considered to be the “father of medicine” actually prescribed whey protein to his patients.   The practice was passed along to Galen & is recorded as a common prescription for health & wellness throughout the centuries.

Why Whey Is A Good Protein Supplement….

Whey is considered a complete protein as it contains all the 9 essential amino acids.  Also, as an added benefit – whey has low levels of lactose, so it is suitable for most people who are lactose intolerance.

 

 

Whey Up Your Options…

  • Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC):

This powder includes the protein as well as some of the healthy fat & lactose of the milk.

  • Whey Protein Isolate (WPI):

This is basically pure protein with very little of the other dairy elements remaining.

 

  • Hydrolysate (WPH):

This is a pre-digested whey protein that is virtually free of any potential allergens.  It is very easy for the body to absorb & thus is more expensive than the other types of whey.

 

 

The Benefits of Whey Protein …

According to www.medicalnewstoday whey protein has a variety of possible health benefits including:

  • Weight Loss

 

  • Lower Cholesterol

 

  • Improve Immune Response in children with asthma

 

  • Lower Blood Pressure

 

  • Lower Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

 

  • Anti-Cancer Properties

 

  • Helps maintain muscle mass & prevent age-related muscular atrophy

 

  • Boost fat loss

 

  • Increases your bodies anabolic response to resistance training

 

  • Enhances your immune system functioning – especially if you are physically active

 

Whey is an all-natural protein that satisfies our bodies requirements for protein.

Does Quality Matter?…

Absolutely.  According to the Muscle & Strength complete guide to whey protein whey is assessed with a protein digestibility corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS).

Whey is also measured by its Biological Value (BV) which is a measurement assessing the degree to which animals are able to use the proteins.

The PDCAAS is a number between 0 & 1 that evaluates the protein quality based on the content of amino acid in relation to the body’s requirements.

Basically, the higher the PDCAAS & the higher the BV, the more efficiently it can be absorbed & utilised by our bodies.

 

Lactose Intolerant?…

If you have an intolerance to lactose you can still use a whey protein supplement however it is a good idea to look for an isolate supplement as it is lower in lactose than the concentrate version.

If you are allergic to milk completely it is a good idea to check with a physician before considering a whey protein supplement.

 

The Bottom Line…

Whey is a powerful supplement that can improve your muscle tone & provide a number of additional health benefits.

The average person these days does not consume enough quality protein. Whey offers an easy & effective way of upping your daily protein intake.

The first 30 grams of protein intake everyday goes purely to detoxification. Get this handled as early in your day as possible. Supplementing offers a simple way of achieving this.

Just like as I always prescribe with food, ALWAYS source the best quality whey supplement.

Give your body high quality & it will produce high quality – it’s a simple fact.
