Working out how to look after my body and mind is key
Supplementing with high strength fish oil has been a life saver.
Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce on its own. We can only rely on food. There are many types of omega-3s. ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are the most well known. EPA and DHA are found in oily fish like salmon and sardines. ALA, on the other hand, is found in some nuts and seeds, as well as high-quality cuts of meat like grass-fed beef.
I slightly up my daily dose of Omega 3 fish oil when training for a marathon. Even as an experienced trainer, I have a few conditions which challenge my performance. For me personally, I find that supplementing with omega-3 fish oil has been brilliant.
I started taking omega-3 fish oil supplements following DNA Fit testing, extensive research for my conditions and after qualifying as a Nutritional Therapist. I highly recommend Bare Biology’s products because they’re pure and contain a high enough strength of EPA and DHA that means they work...and I’m not being paid or sponsored to write this article...I genuinely believe in their products based on my first-hand experience.
How Omega 3 fish oil may benefit you
1. The brain is made up of 60% fat, primarily DHA. Omega-3 DHA helps with normal brain function and the development of your baby’s brain too and you can read more about that in this handy omega-3 guide to pregnancy.
