Omega 3 Fish Oil

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Okay... I've been taking these supplements for two weeks now. I've also been exercising 20 minutes every other day and drinking 64 ounces of water each day during that time. I feel a HUGE difference in the way my mind is working. I have much more clarity of thought. I haven't gotten nearly as confused as before. My emotions are not running my life.

My body doesn't feel like it is ready to break. I am sore from time to time still, but let's face it, I'm carrying an extra 100 pounds 24 hours a day and I have only been serious about exercising my body for two full weeks. I expect to be sore. There is a difference in the soreness though. What I have now is just soreness/stiffness. What I've had before when I tried even just walking at a brisk pace was a feeling like my leg bones wanted to pop out of my hip joints. It was pain. I felt like I was on the brink of doing serious damage by continuing with much exercise. Now, after using the supplements, I actually find myself looking forward to tomorrow because it is an exercise day (what a CHANGE).

So here it is...

I've read several of your posts talking about depression. I want you to look up Omega 3 Fish Oil online. Read up about the reported benefits and surprising lack of side effects. Then, if you think maybe it might be helpful to you, buy a bottle and give it a try for a month. Then come back and let me know if you feel any difference. Be serious about it and take it as directed. I bought the Kirkland (Costco) brand and I have to take one capsule three times a day with water.

My son was using it regularly and his ADHD symptoms were significantly reduced. Unfortunately he slacked off taking them, just as I did, and today I got a letter from the school informing me that he had an in-school detention for something foolish he did. Guess who is starting up the supplements again tomorrow morning???? lol

Some of you already take this supplement... please leave comments here about your experience with it so everyone can see...


Be good to yourselves...

    As I have said I wouldn't be without them. Especially useful when you don't like to eat a lot of fish. They're also something that you can't overdo - well without really trying. I take 2000 mg in the morning and 2000 at night - this has been my routine for years and nagging joint problems I used to have have all completely disappeared. My lower back on the other hand is a different issue but I guess once I stop giving Bert a free ride this will improve as well! Thanks for your nice words on my last blog - very stressed at the moment but its a bit of a wait it out and see if the market will turn like I expect it to - was feeling overconfident and over played my hand - a lesson for next time.,

    I take it. I haven't noticed any real significant changes but I believe it is good for me so I plan to continue taking it. So glad to hear you and your son have had such positive results taking it.

    Way to go on the consistent exercise!
