We have come full circle with the nutrient fat, from the low-fat diet craze of the 90s to now focusing again on healthful, full-fat foods in our diet to ensure optimal health, energy, and a balanced body. We know that a lack of certain fats in the diet can be detrimental to our health. As a mom, I give my kids organic whole milk; we also eat and cook our food with butter, coconut oil and other cold-pressed oils, and we eat full-fat Greek yogurt and avocados daily. Yes, thankfully, it seems that fat has come full circle.
The good omega-3s: foundational nutrient #1
In a perfect nutritional world, you will receive all your good fats from your food. The reality is that most people are not consuming enough of these healthful fats in their diet or are eating hydrogenated oils and processed foods that diminish the positive effects of the good dietary fats. This results in a chronic deficiency of long-chain omega-3s, namely eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Healthy omega-3s are the foundation for good health, therefore in order to overcome dietary deficiency we need to supplement with a high quality fish oil.
When our diet isn’t enough we need to supplement
Next to Aspirin, fish oil is the most studied “drug” in the world, with an impressive body of research confirming the health prevention and treatment benefit for numerous chronic diseases including brain and emotional health, cardiovascular disease, as well as many other inflammatory conditions.
Our body is built out of cells, cells are built from membranes and membranes are built from fats. It isn’t even an option, but a must to build your cell membranes from healthy fats. Therefore, my foundational nutrient of choice is fish oil containing omega-3s, EPA and DHA. This is why I formulated and founded the Sea-licious brand of omega-3s. I wanted to find the BEST way possible to deliver high quality omega-3s in a form that everyone in the family would love. I am so proud of Sea-licious, and I have poured my passion for health, love for product development, and appreciation for what nutrition can do for us, all into this amazing product.
Supplementing with liquid fish oil is the most efficient way to deliver appropriate amounts of omega-3s. Just 1 teaspoon per day provides 1,500 mg of omega-3 per serving. Liquid omega-3 oils are better absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract therefore improving bioavailability and delivery. Sea-licious is the most delicious omega-3 fish oil available. Luckily techniques to flavour and purify the oil have come a long way from the days of rancid-tasting cod-liver oil that our mothers used to give us. It tastes so delicious you won’t believe it’s fish oil and is the most convenient way to increase the healthy omega fats in your diet.
