Maybe not for all, though.
But I'm 78 and finally there is something that works for me. For those who have read my past blogs, know that I am - or supposed to be - on a restricted diet. (I am following it faithfully with two exceptions mentioned below)
I added Krill Oil to my diet and think this was the magic button for me. It is healing my system from overabuse - years of eating things like sugar, flour, wrong fats, etc. And yes, at times I was a health nut and even a vegetarian, but couldn't stay on anything healthy for long because of other health issues.
If I can go out for dinner and eat a couple of biscuits with ice cream for dessert plus some cheesecake with whipped cream another time (and throw the rest out), and not go on a binge for weeks, then you KNOW something has changed here with me!!!!
No, not all Omega-3 oils are the same! I can vouch for that. I tried the one my chiropractor swears by and sells nearly at cost because he believes in it. Didn't work - after I had downed a whole bottle of it. It didn't taste bad because they added something like lemon to it. Imported stuff from Sweden or Norway. He said he tried Krill Oil and it didn't work for him. Sooo. . .!
All I can say is listen to your own body. It will tell you what you need.
And if you can't stand the taste of these oils (like me) I buy the soft gels.
Don't believe there is nothing or no information out there to help you!
So, I hope something I've said has motivated you to take action.
Remember, whatever you do, to check with your doctor first before mixing meds.
