Its Enough to Drive You Fatty! Part 1

Fun Fat Facts:

Getting Enough Omega 3? Here is How.


Our bodies function best when we eat foods similar to those eaten by our primitive ancestors—lean, wild meats, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, and a balanced supply of essential fats.  
 
When it comes to essential fats, a healthy balance between the omega 3 and the omega 6 is necessary for good cellular health. And it needs to become a top priority for anyone who wants to look, feel and perform their best.


Unfortunately, omega 3 fats started to disappear from the American diet about 75 years ago. Instead of a 1:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fats, the average American now consumes a 15:1 ratio! With an EFA imbalance this severe, the body is forced to use inferior and/or heat-damaged oils to create and repair its cell membranes. Inflammation, fatigue, chronic pain and low energy are just a few of the unavoidable results.

Fish oil may not be a very “sexy” product, but its benefits are!

To function fully and efficiently, your body requires an adequate amount of the omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil. If your personal performance goals include making visible improvements in your health, appearance, and fitness, then optimizing your omega 3 level is an absolute necessity. Scientific research has linked high omega 3 levels to improved energy, strength, endurance, and focus; a lower percentage of body fat, and healthier, younger-looking skin.

But despite their many benefits, an overwhelming majority men, women, and children are deficient in omega 3 fats.
 
Why?
 
Because of our evolutionary heritage, we are genetically programmed to thrive on cold-water fish—a food source that has become much less common for “modern” humans. Satisfying our innate, physiological need for omega 3 fatty acids requires a dietary supplement. But not all omega 3 supplements are created equal! Before you choose a supplement formula, consider the following:  

  • Its Source

    While flax, hemp, krill, and green algae all contain omega 3 fatty acids, their bio-available concentrations are either too low or too difficult for the body to use, and therefore ineffective...

Is There Something Fishy in Your Fish Oil?

Test results published in the January 22, 2014 edition of the New York Times show that several, big-brand fish oil supplements did not meet their omega-3 fatty acid content claims. Of 30 products analyzed (including those from Kirkland, GNC, Nordic Naturals and Carlson Labs), at least a dozen averaged 14% below their labeled, DHA levels; six tested a full 30% below. In addition, a number of other published reports have shown that these same, top-selling brands contain large amounts of toxins like heavy metals, PCB's, furans and dioxins.

Unfortunately, you can't trust the big brands!  

When it comes to both purity and quality, the leading store brands consistently come up short. Not only are their label claims faulty, their use often proves ineffective with few real, measurable results....

Get Leaner, Faster and Stronger with Fish Oil!

If you have been regularly reading my posts or using Core 4 Nutrition products, you should know that omega 3 fatty acids, whole-food micronutrients, vitamin D3 and nitric oxide form the foundation of maximum health and performance.  And, more specifically, that an optimal omega 3 level (an index of 14% to 16%) has a powerful effect on inflammation, blood flow, tissue oxygenation, mental function, cardiovascular function and the rate at which your body ages.  

In addition, omega 3's have been shown to positively effect both muscle (increasing it) and visceral fat (decreasing it) by improving insulin sensitivity (which controls blood sugar and muscular recovery). Because omega 3 fats reduce abdominal, visceral fat they are directly linked to significantly lower rates of obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. 

A recently-published study explains why Core 4 users who take the correct dosage of fish oil find it much easier to get and stay lean,while increasing both their energy and endurance.

I want to thank my colleague 
Dr. Dave Woynarowski, MD for bringing this study to my attention. 

Omega-3 supplementation alters mitochondrial membrane composition and respiration kinetics in human skeletal muscle. Yes, it's a little bit technical, but you can read the abstract 
here.

The study specifically investigated how higher doses (at least 3 grams per day) of an omega 3 supplement alter our mitochonidria, the powerhouse of our cells. In a nutshell, researchers confirmed our observed findings that an optimal omega 3 level enhances the body's ability burn stored fat for energy.
