Healing Power of Emulsified Omega-3 Supplements
Omega-3s are essential fats critical for so many areas of health, including brain development, mood, heart health, skin health, and even preventing cancer.

Unfortunately, most people aren't getting enough. On top of that, many people are taking in too many omega-6s, which spike inflammation. Omega-6s are found in pre-packaged, processed and fast foods. 

Supplements are one way to fortify your diet with more omega-3s, but you can also do so via certain foods (seafood/fish, seeds and nuts, avocado). 

Many fish oil supplements get a bad rap for the fishy after-taste, but options like Barlean’s Omega Swirl supplements have overcome that. These supplements are emulsified utilizing a proprietary technology that turns standard fish oil, flax oil and a variety of other essential nutrients into sweet, delicious smoothie-like supplements.

Alene Johnson, Director of Product Education for Barlean’s, joins host Lisa Davis to explain why omega-3s are so important for overall health and disease prevention, as well as why supplementing your diet with omega-3s can be easier than one would think.
