Omega 3’s + Reduce PMS Symptoms (GiveAWAY)

Oh HEY Friday. SO glad you’re back ;)

And you all should be happy to be reading…..because it’s GIVEAWAY time again. Woot.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

You all have probably heard about Omega 3’s. If you haven’t, the quick low-down is this : we need Omega 3 fatty acids in our diet because our body does not produce them. This need is there because our body functions best with these essential fatty acids circulating in our system. Hence the hype for flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, and fish.

Those Omega 3’s are more important than Omega 6’s, as the 3’s (shortened version to saying it) help reduce inflammation and can aid in reducing the risk of heart disease, some cancers, and strokes.

Omega 6’s are also essential in our diet, but the Western diet is not lacking in 6’s. In fact, the ratio of 6’s to 3’s is dangerously high, and is thought, among many medical doctors, that that high ratio is one of the leading contributors to heart disease and strokes (because 6’s tend to increase inflammation if consumed in larger quantities.)

These fatty acids are found in fatty fish and oils from those fish…..but not all of those fatty acids are readily bioavailable (meaning the body does not take up very much from the actual amount in the food).

When I was contacted by Everest Nutrition regarding my desire to try Everest Nutrition Krill Oil pills that have 300 mg Omega 3’s per pill, with the Omega 3’s being more bioavailable than fish oil, and helps to reduce PMS symptoms (because I am lucky to have mine back!!), I was all over it.

In the correspondence, this was emailed to me:

Sweet, huh?

Well, I took the pills every day for a month, and I must admit I didn’t feel that much different, but there was NO fishy burp-back (ewww) at all (which I’ve had before with fish oil pills)! And, during that time of the month all I was was crabby (instead of crabby + hurting). Lucky husband every month, right?! ;)

So yes, some of the pill’s benefits will not be seen right away, but we all know that a healthy heart does not just change to an unhealthy heart in ONE day. There are lifestyle choices (i.e. fitness choices, food choices) and many other factors that we can control to make sure we have the best heart possible in the long run. These Krill Oil pills will help you do that!
