Discover the Fish With the Highest Amount of Omega 3s

Unfortunately not all fish are created equal when it comes to Omega 3 fatty acids. Some fish are naturally high in these fats. I think that the fish with the highest amount of Omega 3 fatty acids is a species called the Hoki. This fish the Hoki are native to the deep cold pristine waters of the Southern Ocean off the coast of New Zealand. Because of their diet which consists of plankton these fish are naturally rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. Research has shown that many fish contain contaminants like mercury, lead and PCBs etc. Because the waters they swim in is so clean, the Hoki fish may be the safest to eat. A recent study of fish oil supplements found many that were high in mercury and the other contaminants mentioned above. These supplements had not been through the process called molecular distillation. So if you are going to buy a fish oil supplement please make sure that the oil you buy has been molecularly distilled. You can check that the oil you are buying as was purified by going to the manufacturers website. There you will find the information you need. You will also be able to see where the fish the oil is obtained from comes from. If the fish oil does not come from Alaska or Norway or the Southern Ocean off the...

The Ultimate Fishing Experience

As a young child, fishing and camping were normal weekend events in our family. Camping always kept my full attention. Boating, swimming, and late night campfires with the ones you love were the most memorable experiences that I had. Fishing was never a high interest of mine at that time. Now that I am older with children of my own, I have a different outlook on many different things. A friend of mine called me and asked if I wanted to go on a fishing trip with the guys. The trip was at Lake Erie and I had never been there. All of my fishing trips consisted of rivers, reservoirs, and small man-made lakes. I met my friend and we continued to the nearest bait store for our fishing license and of course, bait. What I did not expect was,.. I was about to have the ultimate fishing experience of my lifetime along with getting in touch with my inner spirituality. The experience was one in which I will never forget for the rest of my entire life. I stepped onto the boat and felt anxious to get out onto the water. Once the boat was out and moving through the channel, anxiety was still going through my body. Then, there it was. The wide open, beautiful Lake Erie. As the boat began to get up to a high...

The Facts On Fish Oil Supplements For Health

Fish oil supplements for health is becoming increasingly well known. Almost everyone nowadays has heard or read about the benefits of omega 3 fatty acids and fish oils are the richest source of omega 3 fatty acids. Some people also want to know what the fish oil supplement RDA is. RDA meaning recommended daily allowance. The fact of the matter is that there isn’t a fish oil supplement RDA because there is no RDA set forth by the government for fish oil or omega 3 fatty acids. Certain health experts have varying opinions on how much omega 3 fatty acids we need for good health, but these are just opinions, not recommended daily allowances. However, certain types of oil that are mistakenly labled as such oil — like cod liver oil — are very high in certain vitamins such as Vitamin A, which can be toxic in high doses. Which means if you are taking something like cod liver oil, you need to carefully watch your RDA for Vitamin A because you will be ingesting a lot of it from the cod liver oil and you want to be careful to not go well over the RDA levels. In our opinion, because of the potentially toxic effects of cod liver oil, if you want to use fish oil supplements for health, you should stick to a different type of...
