Lately, I keep hearing more and more about omega-3s and eating fish especially. I don’t eat fish, so I take fish oil pills instead. Or I consume chia seeds and ground flax.
If you haven’t tried chia seeds yet, check out this post on the Swanson Health Products Blog.
Last week, at the “Eat Well, Live Well” lunch I went to, the registered dietitian who spoke to us did mention fish quite a bit. She was focusing on eating for breast cancer health or cancer prevention in general. She said omega-3s reduce inflammation in the body, fight against cancer and one should eat fish 2-3 times per week to get these benefits.
A couple of nights ago on Doctor Oz, he was talking about Omega-3s and measured the levels in two women. One was ok because she ate salmon at least once a week, but you could tell the other lately hadn’t paid much attention to adding Omega-3s to her diet. Dr. Oz said there is a lot of hype about Omega-3s right now, so be careful when choosing products that say they have Omega-3s in them.
A couple of months ago, Swanson Health Products sent me some Carlson fish oil pills to try out and review. I have been using them for a couple of months now and they are great! I remember my first time trying fish oil pills–I bought the kind in which you burp up the fish taste and it was awful! These definitely do not do that and I love the product!
Here are the supplement facts from the Swanson Health Products website:
According to Google shopping, Swanson Health Products has the cheapest price for 120 soft gels.
