As we snap into Spring, fitness and beach bodies are on most of our minds. I have started back into my outdoor fitness routine, and it is so encouraging! I also tweaked my supplement intake, as I occasionally do, to suit my fitness and seasonal needs.
In Winter, my supplements range from the old standby's, to a range of odorless garlic, echinacea, vitamin D's, and Vitamin C, with some mineral supplements mixed in. I tweak this in the Spring, swapping out the immune boosting supplements, to the muscle and inflammation aiding supplements. Right now, I have incorporated Zyflamend, to help my knees adjust to the outdoor running and walking, and doubling up on a supplement that I take year round- Fish Oil.
The benefits of Fish Oil are amazing. Here are a few reasons that I keep this in my routine year-round:
1. Aides In Weight Loss
Weight loss is never my goal, but displaying tone and ample muscle is. Some of my readers may be looking for a little help dropping Winter Weight. If that is the case: Studies show that people that consume Fish Oil regularly, have a greater ability of shedding unwanted pounds.
2. Boosts Immune System
Fish Oil has shown positive immune growth in animal studies, as well as human trails. Though more human studies are being conducted, it is safe to deduce that positive interations between the supplement and fever, skin rashes, and common illnesses have been witnessed by many.
3. Reduces Inflammation
Reducing inflammation is important once you begin amp up your workout routine, as most of us do this time of year. Not only does Fish Oil reduce inflammation in the tissues, which we need to heal after excercise it helps with other problems such as IBS and Crohn's Disease.
4. Helps Depression and Anxiety
It has been shown that Omega 3 has a positive effect on depression, anxiety, sadness, decreased libido, and suicidal thoughts.
5. Improves Eye Sight
It has been long noted that Fish Oil aides in improving eye sight. It is in trails now, regarding its ability to improve macular degeneration as well.
6. Skin Care
Fish Oil greatly helps with Winter dry skin, as well as eczema, and psoriasis. Taking it orally does the trick, but it can also be used topically, as well.
The brand I am currently promoting in my wellness routine is Life & Food Omega-3 Supreme.
