- supplement with fish oil!
Now you might be wondering why fish oil, out of all the supplements out there? If you’ve ever walked into a supplement store, it’s easy to be quickly overwhelmed with all the seemingly “magical” supplements out there.
“This one will make my boobs grow and speed up my metabolism?!”
“This will make my hair grow double time!”
“Does this really burn belly fat?”
If you’re anything like how I used to be, you end up buying what can end up being hundreds of dollars’ worth of supplements that you can’t guarantee will do anything for you.
What if I told you that instead of buying all these different supplements, there’s one old-fashioned way of burning fat, beautifying your skin and hair, and improving brain function!
Yup, you guessed it! It’s fish oil.
Just to name a few benefits, fish oil, it
- accelerates fat loss
- makes your skin and hair healthier
- reduces inflammation
- helps your joints
- improves brain function
- aids cardiovascular health
- contributes to your overall health
Basically, the more you research fish oil, the more benefits you will find.
Note: The best fish oil supplements to choose are ones that have a higher ratio of Omega-3’s to Omega-6’s in them. This is because the typical American diet usually consists of more Omega-6’s than 3’s, and without enough of both, the effects of fish oil are lessened.
The main benefit I wanted to stress here, however, is the fact that it improves fat metabolism. Many experienced personal trainers recommend their obese clients to supplement with fish oil, and without changing anything else in their diet, their clients will usually experience almost immediate weight loss! It continues to help people of all different sizes and levels of health, and is beneficial whether you are trying to gain muscle or lose weight, or simply feel healthier and better about yourself. It’s the simplest change you can make to your diet, with one of the greatest results.
If you’re not already supplementing with fish oil, it’s especially important during the holidays because if you’re celebrating this time of year the traditional American way, your body is going to need the extra metabolism boost to kick off your New Year’s Resolutions! Remember to stick to your holiday plan this month, and do as much damage control as you can!
