The question remains – what do we really need? In honor of National Nutrition Month, here are the Top Four Musts for nutritional supplementation.
#2: Omega 3 (Fish Oil)
Omega 3s are considered “Essential Fatty Acids”. Essential in this context means that it’s not something that our bodies make – we have to ingest it. Omega 3s and Omega 6s support your nervous, cardiovascular, immune, and reproductive systems. You want to keep a healthy Omega 3:6 ratio (ideally a 1:1 – 1:4). The problem? We ingest a much larger amount of Omega 6 in our diets, tipping the ratio.
To balance things out, add 3000mg of a high quality Fish Oil daily. Look for one made with small fish (less toxins), and with both EPA and DHA.
