arrows Product: Wild Caught Norwegian Salmon Oil

Salmon Oil is comprised of the fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (decosahexaenoic acid) along with other fatty acids. EPA and DHA are Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for the proper functioning of all tissue and every cell in the body. Omega-3 fatty acids are contained in fish, such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, haddock and cod, evening primrose oil, and linseed oil. Salmon oil is considered by many to be the "king of fish oil".

Why Should I Supplement My Diet With Salmon Oil?

Back in time, humans evolved on a diet that contained small but roughly equal amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Then, about 100 years ago, the food supply began to change. The vegetable oil industry began to hydrogenate oil, which reduced the oil's omega-3 content. At the same time, the domestic livestock industry began to use feed grains, which happen to be rich in omega-6 fatty acids and low in omega-3 fatty acids. As a result, the American diet now has a ratio of 2:1 omega-6 to omega-3, rather than the 1:1 ratio with which humans evolved. In other words, our modern American diets are likely to be very unbalanced with omega-6 fats compared to the omega-3 fats. While the unbalance can be solved by careful composition of one's diet, the most practical way for most Americans is to supplement with omega-3 fats. Salmon Oil is a rich source of omega-3 fats.

Why Don't I Just Take Flaxseed Oil?

Flaxseed oil is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, but it is also an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids. Since the typical American diet is already unbalanced with too much omega-6, it would not be desirable to try to remedy the imbalance by supplementing with an oil that contains omega-6 fatty acids.

I Thought I Was Supposed To Avoid Fats?

This is a common misconception as many Americans strive to reduce the amount of fats in their diets and snacking. Our bodies need fats in order for us to live. So there are "good fats" and there are "bad fats". The only fats you should avoid completely are those called trans fatty acids. Trans fatty acids are those which have been altered chemically by the addition of hydrogen molecules to a naturally unsaturated fatty acid oil. The result is to make the oil into a solid or semi-solid. Trans fatty acids are associated with a number of unhealthy conditions in our bodies. One should strive to consume the proper balance and quantity of omega-3 and omega-6 fats.

Why Do I Want to Take Salmon Oil Along With Myristin®?

Taking Salmon Oil for two or three months along with Myristin® adds to the likelihood of success of Myristin®. For best total body health, many natural products users take salmon oil, or some source of omega-3 fats, every day and will do so for the rest of their lives.
