The Single Most Important Nutrient You Can Take

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.


Final thoughts

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.

In fact, here’s the link to my resources for what Omega-3 supports.

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.
