Omega 3's

I'm a huge fan of Dr. Oz!!! I was watching an episode about crucial vitamins we should be taking. I never was the type of person who took supplements and I know for a fact that I'm not getting the nutrition I need daily. I just hate taking pills!! BUT if it's good for my health and can prevent health problems as I get older, then I will do it even though I don't like it. As I'm on the road for a better health, I started to take vitamins about 5 months ago, and I notice a difference. I have more energy and less fatigue. :)

Dr. Oz stated in his show that the #1 supplement to take are Omega 3's! It's no surprise because our body can't make it and we have to get it through our diets. Did you know women's daily dose of omega 3's is 1000mg and for men it's 600mg. Are you getting your daily dose?? 

Here are some benefits of taking Omega 3 supplements:

-crucial for brain function (memory and performance)
-Normal growth and development
- Reduce heart disease (we need our hearts pumping! It'd be good for those who have history of heart problems)
-Reduces inflammation
-Lubricates joints (less grinding, wear and tear, less parin, which will allow you to do all those fun activities like chasing the kids around. AND prevents from getting arthritis when we get older :)
- Fights wrinkles
-Protect vision
-Clears cholesterol
-enhance fertility

Symptoms that may mean you're deficient in Omega 3's:
fatigue, poor memory, dry skin, heart problems, depression, poor circulation

Here's the video clip of the show I watched :


  1. Hey Gal! Finally I made it! Don't know why I was having so much trouble. Anyway, thanks. I am now following on Google and Networked Blogs. As far as Dr. Oz, I don't know what to make of him. I can't stand Oprah and he was an intricate part of her show, and that deal they (he and Oprah had on line for Acai Berry just turned me completely against them. I got taken for over a hundred dollars on that scam. Of course they aren't the one's that stole it from me, but they weren't careful about checking into the business before endorsing it, so to me they are negligent. Of course that is just my own opinion. They may be completely ok, but I just have sour grapes in my mouth because of it.
    God Bless!

  2. Thanks for your comment! I can understand your reason for not liking him, but with my research Omega 3's have many benefits to a person's health even without Dr. Oz's insight on them. :)

    Thanks for following and I have followed you as well!
