Omega-3s & me

Friday, April 24, 2015 Brittany Lohmann

In recent years fish oil supplements have become more and more popular. Fish oil, whether in liquid or pill form, has touted benefits such as balancing Omega-3 and Omega-6 ratios; lowering blood pressure and triglycerides; as well as reducing inflammation in the body to fight against diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s Disease. While many studies are still inconclusive, fish oil has also publicized as a way to fight against certain cancers, depression, and psoriasis.

While the daily suggested amount of omega-3s ranges from 1000-1200mg of EPA and DHA, many fish oil capsules do not contain enough dosage. As a result, many people who take fish oil may end up taking several capsules simply to get their daily dose.

Up until recently I was one of those people. As a personal trainer and an active person, participating in running, yoga, and CrossFit, I have taken fish oil in pill form for several years. Over the years, I have tried several different brands. Some brands resulted in fish burps, which are unpleasant; others worked just fine but required me to take sometimes up to five pills per day. I had been told by nutritionists that liquid form is actually preferred for faster absorption to taking pills or if you cannot eat fish. However, I never could get past the taste – until I tried Stronger Faster Healthier [SFH].

SFH fish oil comes in five different flavors, including orange, lemon, peppermint, vanilla, and chocolate. I have tried all five flavors and each one of them was good in its own right. Personally, though, the orange is my favorite. Regardless of what flavor you try, no doubt you will be as surprised as I was to discover that fish oil could taste this good. Further, there is no aftertaste or worry of fish burps. The product also scores major points for this as well.

More important than the taste though is that SFH fish oils contain over 3100mg of EPA:DHA in one teaspoon. It’s potent stuff, and a teaspoon is much easier to swallow than four or five pills I took each day, or the nine pills that it can take in other fish oil brands. In addition, Stronger Faster Healthier fish oil is also free of all heavy metals, excels in independent testing, is formulated under FDA Good Manufacturing Practice guidelines, and is free of gluten, soy, and sugar. It is a natural product that I will continue to use and stand behind.

All in all, I know that I am getting all I could ask for out of my fish oil. If you are looking to start including fish oil in your everyday diet, give SFH a try. With its potency, fast absorption, and taste, it will make incorporating omega-3s into your daily life that much easier.
