Other than a good multi-vitamin, One of the most important supplement to recommend to patients is Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids that your body needs to function properly. You get Omega 3’s most commonly from fatty fish, such as salmon, or from flax seeds. Most people do not eat enough fish or flax to get enough Omega 3’s in their diet, so by far the best and easiest way to get it into your diet is by taking a quality highly concentrated fish oil supplement. Omega 3’s or fish oil supplements have many benefits to the human body. Some of the more important ones are to decrease inflammation, promote a healthy heart, skin, and hair, and to maintain cognitive function. If you haven’t considered taking Omega 3’s as part of your daily routine, talk to a trusted healthcare professional about what options they would recommend.
Best if it comes from cold water fish.
I don't take fish oil that often, but I eat flax seeds every morning at breakfast. It is important to grind them fresh and eat them within several minutes of preparing them. I blend them into a glass of 2% or even whole milk and drink them. Usually sweeten it some with raw local honey.
With omega 3, you'll have:
1. freedom from pain and inflamation as it is involve in your body's inflammatory response
2. Studies show that omega 3 has a positive impact to improve memory, recall, reasoning and focus
3. It also alleviates symptoms of depression, bipolar, and psychosis
But you have to be selective. Many nuts that are high in omega 3 oils are terribly high in omega 6 oils. Macadamia nuts are a major exception. They are also expensive.
