Number 3: A supplement high in omega-3 fatty acids
This includes fish oil, green mussel oil extracts, calamari oils and plant-based sources.
Many benefits such as improved heart health, thinking and memory can be received from eating two servings of fish per week.
But for some, taking the supplement is easier and more convenient.
Also, studies indicate a decrease in inflammation related to arthritic pain and asthma in some individuals. Store your omega-3 fatty acid supplement in the fridge or freezer to keep them from turning rancid.
Before taking any supplement you should check with your physician. Take all supplements with food to increase absorption and decrease the risk of an upset stomach. Also, buy from a trusted source.
Remember, the best way to supplement is with food that includes a rainbow selection of vegetables, lean meats and healthy fats.
