Allie Might, INHC, AADP, ATT: [00:00:41] Welcome to the InViteⓇ Health Podcast where today will discuss Omega Threes. I’m Allie Might, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Functional Medicine Coach. Here to help you find the best omega threes for you. † [00:00:54]

[00:00:55] There are so many options out there when it comes to Omega threes that it can get rather confusing. There’s fish oil, krill oil, cod liver oil and flaxseed, just to name a few. There’s also options like pills, liquids, powders and seeds. So how does one choose the best option for their own needs? Let’s break down the options we have here at InViteⓇ Health to make it easier to choose.† [00:01:21]


[00:01:23] Our fish oil here at InViteⓇ Health is a staple in many people’s daily supplement regimens, and I recommend it all the time. We incorporate a variety of fish such as anchovy, tuna and sardines. The variety may vary due to our high quality control standards and commitment to making clean products. Each of our fish oil soft gels contains 300 milligrams of EPA and 200 milligrams of DHA, which offers all the benefits of fish oil when taking 2 to 3 of these soft gels per day with meals. The biomega fish oil from Dr. Pressman is very similar to the traditional InViteⓇ Health fish oil, but the biomega is enteric coated soft gel. This enteric coating helps this fish oil to break down and absorb in the intestines instead of the stomach. This is helpful to reduce the fishy aftertaste some people experience when taking fish oil supplements. Either our fish oil or biomega is a great option to help maintain general health or to help support vision and brain health as well as the circulatory system.† [00:02:39]


[00:02:41] Over the past few years, krill oil has been talked about a lot in the conversation on omega threes. Our krill oil is sourced from the Antarctic for its purity. Just like a traditional fish oil, the krill oil also supplies EPA and DHA. However, our krill oil also supplies 400 milligrams of phospholipids. This has shown a higher rate of absorption of the EPA and DHEA by the body because of the availability of the absorption, we can take a smaller amount of krill oil versus fish oil. Krill oil also contains Astaxanthin, which has been shown in studies to help manage inflammation. This is a unique property as it’s what gives the pink hue to such marine life like salmon, shrimp and of course, krill. I recommend krill to be taken for those who want extra nourishment for the brain, as well as for anyone with cardiovascular issues such as cholesterol problems or elevated triglyceride levels. Because krill is a relative of shrimp, anyone with a shellfish allergy may want to avoid krill oil and stick with the more traditional fish oil.† [00:03:57]


[00:03:59] Let’s not forget about flaxseed. Our organically sourced flaxseed comes in a powder form, making it easy to take. This is a great omega three option for vegetarian as it’s plant based. These omega three’s are an alpha linoleic acid that the body converts into DHEA and EPA found in fish oils. Flaxseed also contains omega six and nine, which can be beneficial for the hormones. This is also a nice source of fiber, which we know is good for not only the digestive tract, but has also been shown to maintain healthy heart functions. I’d like to add a scoop of Flax to a smoothie, plain yogurt or mixed into oatmeal. † [00:04:42]

[00:04:44] I hope I’ve made choosing the right omega three for your needs easier.
