When the lovely people at Bare Biology sent me their Lion Heart Omega 3 Fish Oil to review, I'd already been using it for almost two years with great results.
The founder of Bare Biology, Melanie Lawson, became tired of trying to hunt down good Omega 3 supplements that were strong enough to work and also didn’t taste really strong and fishy. Not easy if you’ve tried most fish oil supplements out there, which leave a very strong aftertaste in your mouth. So Melanie made her own, and the result was Lion Heart Omega 3 fish oil.
I’ve been taking this fish oil supplement for almost two years now, and it’s the only one I take, because they contain the highest concentration of long-chain fatty acids EPA and DHA on the market. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are the fats found in oily fish and seafood. EPA levels are under constant demand and low EPA levels in adolescents and adults correlates strongly with development of mental health issues, including depression, dyslexia and dyspraxia, heart problems, joint and bone conditions, as well as neurodegenerative diseases such as MS and Parkinson’s. EPA also protects our genes and cell cycle, as well as helping to keep our stress response regulated, so an adequate supply of EPA throughout adult life can help prevent a range of chronic illness. If this isn’t enough to convince you to take a fish oil supplement, maintaining high levels of EPA and DHA has been shown to lower the risk of developing and worsening cognitive decline and dementia. As well as all this, Omega 3 will help to support healthy skin, eyes and hair, and brain health – so if you don’t take anything else, make sure you invest in a great quality Omega oil such as Lion Heart.
Some other benefits of Lion Heart omega oil are that it is sustainably and responsibly sourced and fished wild sardine, anchovy and mackerel. The capsules are also made from fish gelatin, rather than pork or beef, and have a natural triglyceride form so that your body absorbs all of it. I love the transparency of the company, you really know you’re getting an excellent quality fish oil here. The Omega 3 oil tastes mildly lemony and works really well in my daily green smoothie, but if you really don’t like the idea of taking oil, you can buy it in capsule form too. You can find their products here.
Here's to health!
