The benefits of fish oil for pregnancy, pure DHA for kids - associated with behavior and learning - and omega-3 fatty acids for heart or joint health for adults are now part of our lives and working well for people.
If you read about health, watch health segments on television or listen on the radio, you have heard about omega 3 fatty acids or fish oil. If not, be sure to click on the link below and hear what Dr. Oz has to say because he will 'catch you up'!
The television segment that Dr. Oz did on omega fatty acids was excellent. Most doctors talk about treating illness and disease, although lately more of them are talking about fish oil for building better health. I follow Dr. Oz because he really hits us hard with prevention and taking fish oil is something very good that we can do for ourselves.
I have heard for years about the omega-3 and omega-6 imbalance in our bodies. This is due to the foods that we eat and is important because it can also determine how we feel and the state of our health. Omega-6 fats contribute to inflammation that can result in anything from arthritis to heart disease and many other diseases.
Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation in our bodies. Fish oil can make our joints feel better and a whole lot more. Dr. Oz says that we can't get too much Omega-3's and we don't need to worry about getting any more omega-6 fats because our food provides more than enough of those. We want our body's ratio to be no more than 2 to 1, omega-6 to omega-3 (1 to 1 is even better) and we will feel the difference.
The problem with getting enough omega-3 fatty acids every day is that most of us don't eat enough fish every day and other sources of food can increase our calories too much if we eat in excess. That would be true for walnuts. I love walnuts but my weight goals might be in trouble if I ate walnuts all day long!
In order to get a good supply of fish oil every day, most of us need to supplement. Fish oil when consumed in supplement form is something easy that we can do every day. Leave that bottle of fish oil out on your counter. Don't miss your daily serving and within a short time I would be surprised if you tell me anything other than you feel enough of a difference that you will stay faithful!
It is important to find a high quality fish oil brand because there are different grades of fish oil and the manufacturing process differs from brand to brand. Since food supplements are not regulated, it is essential to find a brand you trust and that uses pure, quality ingredients.
What you put in your body will determine what you get back in terms of health. Another issue is the odor. People have been turned off to supplements that leave a strong fish odor in your mouth. Finding a better source of fish oil is a solution to this problem as well.
EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids are well studied for helping reduce heart disease, helping retain normal blood pressure, and supporting healthy joint function, vision and brain.
Here is the link to the Dr. Oz show on omega fatty acids. You will open to the video of the first part. Under that video are links to the other 3 sections - there are 4 short videos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Dr. Oz: Know Your Omega Fatty Acids

It is a fact that most people do not stick to diets. We have good intentions but it is hard to stick to them. There are constantly new diets being introduced and we think the next new diet will be the one that 'will work'.
There is a problem with starting and stopping all these diets. When you stop the diet because it either isn't working for you or you can't be consistent with it, you go back to your normal level of calories consumed. In the meantime, you have lost muscle along with the fat you (hopefully) lost. Along with that lost muscle, you lost the ability to burn calories efficiently because muscle burns fat for all of us.
So now, when you start eating more again, the extra calories turn more easily into fat. The body now has even more fat than before - and less muscle than before. People who have gone on repeated diets are in a cycle of losing muscle and gaining and re-gaining fat.
A pound of fat burns only 2 calories per day. So if you are 20 lbs (of fat) overweight, and you multiply 2 by 20, you are only burning 40 calories per day. If that extra weight were muscle, it would burn 50 calories per pound and result in 1000 calories.
A person damages their metabolism with this kind of yo-yo dieting, making it almost impossible to lose weight.
Now that you understand more about the connection between muscle and weight loss, there is something that can help. Weight loss and weight management programs with amino acids called leucine help the body build and repair muscle tissue and burn fat!
Leucine is the amino acid that signals your body to preserve muscle during weight loss. We say that 'Cinch is Powered by Leucine' because it helps you keep your muscle so you lose your fat.
When you use a leucine powered weight loss/management program, you can actually keep 100% of your important muscle mass - a healthier option because it is your muscle that burns your fat and improves your metabolism. This means the weight you lose is all FAT!
Some athletes take leucine because it initiates protein synthesis in the muscles for muscle building. In weight loss, this muscle building counteracts muscle breakdown that happens when you eat fewer calories (when you are on a diet).
Consuming leucine can be as easy as having a protein shake every day for breakfast, and if you need to lose significant weight it can be two meals for you each day. Eating snack bars or meal bars with leucine in place of other foods that are higher in calories or don't have the nutrition you need when you are trying to cut calories and lose weight are easy options. Sipping on tea that gives you energy and helps you get from one meal to the next without snacking is a Cinch!
