For years mainstream medicine bashed us for taking our fish oil supplements.
The media took every opportunity to poke fun at us too. Heck, if your experience is anything like mine, your friends and family probably got in on the act.
Notice how they naysayers have shut up about it now?
Well, there’s a good reason for the silence.
It turns out there IS a way to get conventional medicine “experts” to accept… and even promote… a safe and natural therapy for beating one of today’s TOP KILLERS.
All you have to do is give them lots (and lots) of money to do it.
OMEGA-3 … the hottest thing in mainstream medicine
It’s not often you’ll find me celebrating a mainstream trend.
And I’m not exactly thrilled about this one, for reasons that’ll be clear in a moment.
But right now, let’s call this what it is: A long-overdue moment of recognition for omega-3s. Because multiple mainstream studies finally back these essential fatty acids for heart health.
Even the FDA has been forced to APPROVE omega-3s!
The agency now recognizes that omega-3 fatty acids can slash levels of triglycerides, a dangerous lipid FAR worse than everyone’s favorite bogeyman LDL cholesterol.
Now, the American Heart Association is getting in on the act too. They just issued a “scientific statement” on omega-3 fatty acids, declaring them “safe and effective” for cutting triglycerides.
The organization pointed to research that shows high doses of the omega-3 fatty acid cut the risk of major cardiovascular problems by a quarter in patients with high triglycerides.
They also noted that we’re expecting the results next year of a major study of the combined effects of EPA and DHA, the two main fatty acids in fish oil. And it seems like they’re ready for good news.
They’re urging docs to get patients on board with omega-3s.
The fish oil CATCH OF THE DAY
Well… not so fast.
There’s a catch. Of course. The FDA and AHA aren’t giving their blessing to SUPPLEMENTS with all-natural fish oil.
They’re backing a series of drug companies, which have cooked up synthetic versions of those same omega-3s. In other words, they’re allowing them to patent the nutrient as a product. And, of course, sell it with the FDA’s blessing.
Oh, and at a HUGE markup.
With good insurance… even with GREAT insurance… the copays alone on these prescription omega-3s can be far higher than the price of a high-quality all-natural supplement.
But there’s not a shred of evidence that these pricey synthetics are any better than what nature has already given us.
The only reason they look better in studies is that the research-backed by drug companies uses much higher doses.
So get yourself the real deal: high-quality honest-to-goodness fish oil. Because along with protecting your heart NATURE’S omega-3 solution can help…
- boost your memory
- lift your mood
- enhance your vision
Plus, omega-3-rich fish oil can gently thin your blood, making it a safer alternative to aspirin, too.
Talk to your doc about the best dose for YOU.
