EAT FAT to LOSE FAT!
EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) seem to be the most biologically important omega-3 fatty acids. ALA can be converted into EPA, and EPA can then be converted into DHA, but it seems your body can’t make a lot of DHA.
EPA and DHA play a role in:
- Improving vascular function
- Inflammatory response
- Blood clotting
- Blood pressure
- Cardiac arrhythmias
- and Plasma triglycerides
*All of which will reduce your chances of heart disease.
*Omega-3 supplementation, especially one high id EPA/DHA, increases protein synthesis within the body.
Diets low in DHA have been shown to cause:
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Alzheimer’s disease
- and other mood problems.
*DHA is the active fat in the brain and is especially important during the developmental stages.
+ Avoid Trans fats as they can disrupt the absorption and functions of EPA/DHA.
+ The amount of DHA in a woman’s diet will be directly correlated to the amount of DHA in breast milk. (Higher levels of DHA are great for the newborns brain)
Don’t wait until you finish the bottle of fish oil pills you have been choking down for the last five to ten years. We just got a new shipment of SO3+D3 that will not last long. This supplement allows you to get more than 15 fish oil gel capsules in just one teaspoon. The oil is easy to use, with a very faint flavor of either lemon or tangerine. In order to prevent mood disorders and get better protein synthesis throughout the day, see your coach and ask about SFH SO3+D3!
