Omega-3 Plus

Last year I wrote a post called “What you should know about essential fatty acids” describing why it is so important that we are consuming enough omega 3’s.  In a nutshell, omega 3’s are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and are linked with preventing and treating heart disease, strokes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, depression/bipolar disorder, Alzheimer’s, ADHD, asthma, and breast, colon, and prostate cancers.

For people like myself, who don’t like fish, we must get the required amount of omega 3’s from supplements.  These days, there is so much pollution in the oceans (mercury, oil spills, toxic radiation) that I’ve even given up fish oil supplements. There’s just no way to know where that fish oil comes from or how toxic it may be.

Arbonne’s Omega-3 Plus is what I have started using to ensure I get my omega 3 fatty acids.  These vegan capsules (gelatin capsules cannot be digested keeping you from absorbing any of the supplement) are gluten free.  They contain a proprietary blend of flax, chia, perilla, black raspberry, pomegranate, and pumpkin seed oils.  Two capsules provide 1000mg of omega 3 fatty acids.
