Everyday we are bombarded by various supplements and we should be taking and what we should not be taking. Fish Oil is no exception. I first became interested in fish oil after I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. A friend had told me that this was something that I could benefit from.
To be honest, it did not really sound that good to me. Like many, when I first heard fish oil I envision this oily mess with an overpowering smell of fish that I just know would taste bad and probably help to alienate me from people because I was sure I would be walking around smelling like fish!!
I looked into it and saw that fish oil is beneficial for anyone seeking long term health and to help stay healthy at any age. It was not just for people like my self but body builders also took it to help protect and relieve stress on their joints.
Most of us have heard that fish is a brain food but I did not realize why. Fish oil improves our serotonin levels which are necessary for our mental well being. It is often prescribed for depression sufferers but not as an only remedy.
It is also used to replace Ritalin, that often over prescribed stimulant for attention deficit sufferers.
One reason fish oil is a needed supplement is that most of us no longer have diets rich in fish. Years ago a large part of the worlds population lived on the coasts, bays and rivers. These areas are still populated today. But diets were much more localized and fish was very often on the menu. Many of the fish stocks in the world were abundant and transportation was not what it is today. I never saw my grandfather eat fish. He had grown up on a bay and he said growing up they had fish all the time!!
I asked around and checked resources to find out which fish oil I should take. I found one that stood head and shoulders above the rest http://www.myultimatehealthstore.com/
I read numerous differences in this oil as compared to many others and especially the lower priced oils.
For one, this one is not made from concentrate. When you are shopping for a product and you are comparing two of them and one says ''made from concentrate'' and the other says ''natural processing'' which one do you choose? Of course we always take the one not made from concentrate.
What drew me to that product was their not just claim but explanation about why there oil does not have a strong ''fishy'' taste. I learned that fish as soon as they are caught start to oxidize and this is what gives them their strong fishy taste and smell. The more oxidation the stronger the smell and taste. Being aware that what makes green tea so beneficial ,as compared to black tea, is that green tea is not oxidized. It is a more natural tea and retains more oxidants and beneficials due to the lack of oxidation
When I finally tries it I was stunned! It actually had a pleasant taste. It is flavored with lemon and is very palatable.
I did look at another brand at a friend's house. As soon as she opened the bottle I said no. It smelled just like I thought fish oil would be, over powering.
If you have wanted to get fish oil into your diet but have been unsure which brand to get, try Innate Choice Omega Sufficiency Fish Oil. On Amazon and
