‘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 !

The Best Treatment for Inflammation Is…

What do you think?  Do you use heat?…Ice?…Some other home remedy passed down in your family for generations…?

Below is some information on what are the best practices to treat inflammation when it first flairs up.

You may be experiencing inflammation due to strenuous workouts while your muscles are healing – this is a good reason to learn how best to treat it, improve your recovery time & get back into training. Which in time will increase the results you get from your workouts.

Inflammation

The Best Treatment….

The experts have weighed in & when dealing with muscle inflammation directly after a strenuous workout the best treatment is: ICE.

Especially after completing exercises that cause damage to muscles such as eccentric-enhanced lifting or plyometrics.

A recent study found that using cold bath water at 50°F for 15 minutes helps to restore maximal strength as it helps to reduce the swelling of damaged muscles & facilitate muscle repair.

 

 

I herb it through the grapevine…

What you ingest will affect you from the inside out. Some herbs & spices are seriously effective at reducing & managing inflammation:

  1. Eviodamine
  2. Cloves
  3. Ginger
  4. Rosemary
  5. Turmeric
  6. Cinnamon
  7. Oregano
  8. Sage
  9. Thyme

You can add these to meals or supplement some of them directly. More about this in another article. For now think about getting more of the ones you are familiar with or trying to add a new one into your diet on a regular basis.

 

Long Term Inflammation…

It is important to check that inflammation is not an ongoing problem caused by any other more serious factors.

According to the Poliquin Article: 12 Tips to Fight Inflammation there are some basic reasons behind inflammation including:

  • Fat Gain
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Accelerated aging
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Stomach problems

The biggest worry when suffering from chronic inflammation?  It can actually shorten your life!
If you are suffering from inflammation on a daily basis – & not just after workouts it is important to see your doctor right away & determine if there are other measures you need to take.

If you experience inflammation only after workouts – just remember the famous words of M.C. Hammer:

“Ice, Ice Baby!”
