Several weeks ago I went over 12 foods that can draw inflammation out of the body.
Today, I want to go over in more detail what I believe to be the single best or single most important nutrient our body can take for many reasons…
But before I do, I want to ask you a question.
How many people die in the United States each year?
It’s a big number… 2.8 million.
Heart disease is about 650,000 of that. Cancer isn’t far behind, but everything else pales in comparison.
Just take a look at this chart.
The good news is that there is one specific nutrient that is great for your heart health. Plus, it benefits 94 other clinically studied structure/function issues within the body, including anxiety, total cholesterol, depression, blood pressure, inflammation and more…
The one nutrient I’m talking about is Omega-3.
In the video below, I explain what this nutrient is, why it’s important and how you can get healthy levels.
How to Get Omega-3’s
It’s not hard to supplement your diet with a little bit of fish 2-3 times a week.
Now, I know there’s a risk of eating too much fish with mercury, but it’s a price you have to pay to have at least some Omega-3’s fatty acids from your diet.
You can also supplement with Omega-3 capsules.
Does Your Body Have Enough Omega-3? How to Find Out
I actually went and got my Omega-3 levels tested.
It’s called the Omega-3 index test.
Likely your doctor will not test you for it so you can do it on your own.
It’s a very simple finger prick.
My test came back 6.62. That’s barely sufficient, and 18-40% off adequate levels or optimal levels or desirable levels. That’s terrible, knowing that I eat fish and supplement.
It’s not my job to tell you what to eat or how to eat…
But it is my job to create a little bit of curiosity, a little bit of interest so that you will go and study more of yourself.
It’s long, but the benefits are huge and it comes from meeting either fish flex seed or supplementing with a mega three fatty acids.
I hope this helps.
I hope this spurs a little bit of curiosity within you to take a little bit of either change to your diet or change your lifestyle.
