Fish oil. Sounds delicious doesn’t it? Well, what if I told you there WAS a pure and mighty fish oil that delivered big on omega-3s AND was easy to enjoy?

Great! But what are Omega-3s?

Omega-3s are a type of fatty acid with many important health benefits, with a major one being their ability to reduce inflammation throughout the body. Omega-3s are classified as essential fatty acids. When a nutrient is classified as ‘essential’, it means that our body can’t make it, so we have to get it from our food.

The Source Matters

We can get omega-3s from non-animal sources such as flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts, and cold-water fatty fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel and herring; however, not all sources of omega-3s are equal.

Omega-3s from non-animal sources are not in a very ‘user-friendly’ form; they have to be converted into a ‘ready-for-action’ form by various enzymes – and unfortunately some of us are deficient in these enzymes for a number of reasons, including the fact that their amounts typically decline as we age.

The most active and beneficial forms of omega-3s are called DHA and EPA, and the best way to get them is to eat cold-water fatty fish at least two to three times a week and/or to supplement with a pure, high-quality fish oil supplement.

You’re Likely Not Getting Enough

The average North American isn’t getting anywhere near enough DHA and EPA; in fact, most people should be getting five times more than they currently do! It would be challenging for most to get that much more DHA and EPA from eating fish – and since contamination with heavy metals, PCBs, and other chemicals is a concern with increased fish consumption, a great way to increase daily intake of DHA and EPA is through a supplement like Biotics Research Canada’s Biomega-3 Liquid. This liquid fish oil is easy to take and easy to absorb, and can be beneficial for:

  • Treating skin conditions
  • Calming inflammatory processes, including allergies and asthma
  • Supporting cognitive function
  • Reducing irritability and fatigue
  • Improving immune function
  • Supporting cardiovascular health, including lipid profiles
  • Weight management
  • Blood sugar balance
  • Hormonal balance

1 teaspoon of this powerful anchovy and sardine-based fish oil contains 740mg of EPA and 460 mg of DHA. It’s also soya free, naturally lemon flavoured, and preserved with rosemary extract.

Now you can order a 200ml bottle of Biomega-3 Liquid through through Perfect Resonance Natural Health Counselling for just $46 + HST = $51.98. At a dose of 1 teaspoon daily, this product provides about a one-and-a-half month supply.
