MULTI VITAMINS, ESSENTIAL LIPIDS & FATTY ACIDS
There are two supplements recommended for everyone to take each day. The first is a Multi-Vitamin; the second is 3,000 mg of Essential Lipids, or Omega 3-6-9 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs).
Why take a daily multi-vitamin?
Why take a multi-vitamin? Today’s foods are not as healthy and nutritious as they used to be. Modern technology and food production has stripped our food supply of many nutrients. In addition, in our busy lives we may not get the variety of foods necessary to provide us with all the nutrients our bodies need. A good Multi-Vitamin is a great insurance policy to help make sure our bodies get adequate supplies of the vitamins it needs.
Essential Fatty Acids (Omega 3’s)
The Essential Lipids are essential fats our bodies need for a variety of functions. Our bodies cannot produce these lipids, we must ingest them daily. Studies have shown that 8 out of 10 Americans are deficient in essential lipids and 100% of people who are overweight are deficient in these EFA’s. Essential Lipids help you efficiently burn fat, lower cholesterol, enhance hormone secretion, improve energy levels, strengthen your immune system and improve your mood and thinking ability, improve cell metabolism and they are powerful antioxidants.
Here are some tips on the BEST way to take your supplements:
Take your supplements with a meal & drink least 8 ounces of water with them.
Be consistent by taking your supplements at the same time each day to create a habit.
When taking your EFA’s (or Omega 3 Fatty Acids), if you are using fish oil capsules and they happen to cause indigestion, switch to flax seed oil gel caps. For the highest quality, look for a gel cap which contains a combination of both Fish & Plant Based Oils, such as Flax Seed & Evening Primrose Oils among others.
For optimal absorption of your multi-vitamin supplements a high quality tablet is superior to a capsule, and a liquid multi-vitamin is superior to a tablet for OPTIMAL absorption.
