Fish oil - miracle supplement!

Two weeks ago – when I mentioned that fish oil is a miracle supplement, I wasn’t lying.  Here is a quick list:

  1. Fish oil supplementation has potential benefits in the treatment of heart disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and the list goes on…
  2. As little as 3 grams of EPA + DHA daily has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of heart disease.
  3. It keeps your cell membranes healthy.  This leads to better insulin sensitivity and decreased fat storage.  Better insulin sensitivity means that when you eat, the food will more likely be used to repair muscle instead of being stored as fat.
  4. It turns fat burning genes “on”.
  5. It turns fat storing genes “off”.
  6. It severely reduces inflammation in the body.  This can lead to decreased pain in joints, muscles, and pretty much everywhere.
  7. It decreases depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.
  8. Decreases blood pressure.

Translation:  Miracle Supplement.

You wish your supplements could be this cute...
