The Risk of Omega-3’s

The most popular supplement on the market is Omega-3.  Why?  It’s tremendous for brain and heart health. Scientists, docs and nutritionists conclude that adding Omega-3’s to your diet is a guaranteed way of improving your overall health.

Did you know that if you’re not getting enough of these fatty acids from the right source, you are putting your health at risk?

Most people have heard that the most efficient source of Omega-3 are from cold water fatty fish.  Your body can’t make them so we MUST get them from our diet.  The problem is that there are a lot of contaminants in our waters today.  We’ve heard the warnings to not eat tuna more than once a week and even less in pregnancy because of the potential risks.

Since eating fish daily is risky, many people are resorting to supplements.  But there are a lot of brands on the market.  How can you be sure that you are taking a pure product?  This is especially important to consider for pregnant and nursing moms because they should only include Omega-3 in their diet if it is coming from a clean source.

Diet isn’t always the answer.

Current farming practices and lack of free grazing have led to overprocessed foods and almost no Omega-3.  That has created an unhealthy balance of Omega-6 (which we readily get from grains, soybeans, and seed oils).  When you purchase an Omega supplement, it’s important to NOT get one with Omega-6.  We have an overabundance of Omega-6 in our diets.

Mannatech has one of the highest purity standards available with a 2-step purity process.

    Great article! Supplementing Omega 3 is SO important. When I first started taking Mannatechs Omega 3 supplement I was amazed with how much of a difference it made in my mental clarity and how I felt overall. And I consider myself to be a very health eater (I love fish). Mannatech has one of the purest Omega 3 supplements out there. Plus there is no gross fishy burps…🙂
