Category — Fish oil
Most of you have read or heard about the many benefits fish oil provides. However, in addition to raising your “good” cholesterol by way of omega-3 fatty acids, did you know it also works as an anti-inflammatory? So athletes, weightlifters, and weekend warriors alike can get relief from nagging muscle strains and aching joints.
Try to aim for 2-3 servings per day (anywhere from 2-6 tablets) depending on the brand and serving size. Also, make sure that the fish oil contains both EPA and DPA, the two most important good fats in fish.
Some people are put off by fish oil due to nasty aftertastes or what we’ve come to call “fish burp.” Nature Made and some other brands have come up with a way to prevent this by producing a tablet that has an enteric coating which prevents the pill from breaking up until it is well digested.
