Lion Heart – the omega 3 fish oil with roaring power

It’s really important to take a good quality Omega 3 like Lion Heart fish oil. Omega 3s are used to help treat a wide range of health issues, from anxiety and depression, high cholesterol, arthritis, eczema, through to autoimmune and heart disease. They also help with weight loss, fertility and healthy pregnancy. It’s been one of the most important supplements I’ve added to my diet to help put my Ankylosing Spondylitis, a type of arthritis in remission.

Omega 3 The Superhero

Omega 3s nourish our whole bodies, from our skin, to our joints, eyes and hearts. A bit like the mechanics of a car, eating right will give us the fuel to run but without a good quality oil we simply don’t work as well.

What are omega 3s and why do we need them?

Omega 3s are essential fatty acids. Essential because our bodies can’t make them on their own. The only way we can get them is to eat them. Omega 3s are made up of EPA, DHA and ALA. The most important types are EPA and DHA.

How can I get more omega 3s into my diet?

The EPA is the bit that really works its magic on inflammation, found particularly in oily fish like sardines, mackerel and salmon. Even if you eat lots of oily fish like me, it’s still good to take a good quality Omega 3 supplement like Lion Heart fish oil thanks to its concentration and purity.  Sadly these days the quality of the fish we eat is questionable. There’s more heavy metals found in fish, particularly tuna and salmon is intensively farmed, unless of course you can afford wild salmon (darker pink flesh), so supplementation is even more important.

Omega 6 The villain

Many health problems in the UK today can be traced back to this imbalance of Omega 3 : Omega 6. I wouldn’t recommend consuming too much Omega 6. It prevents Omega 3 from doing its good work and if consumed in large quantities without Omega 3 causes inflammation… the precursor for many illnesses.

Vegetable oil laden snacks like crisps and biscuits that heavily line our shelves today are high in Omega 6. Back in the Paleolithic years, the ratio of Omega 3 : 6 was 1:1, now in the UK it’s around 1:15, even higher in the States where fast food is in abundance. So we really do need to give our bodies more Omega 3 to prevent chronic illness. In my bid to keep inflammation in my body in check I spent many years trawling the shelves of health food shops searching for a fish oil that was strong enough to actually do some good… and quite frankly didn’t taste rank! I’ve been buying and taking Lion Heart fish oil from Bare Biology every day for the past 2 years and truly believe it’s one of the supplements that’s helped keep my autoimmune condition in check.

Why Lion Heart?

Sadly, not all fish oils are created equally. Just one 5ml teaspoon of Lion Heart fish oil gives a whopping 3,000mg of EPA and DHA, that’s a concentrated amount of Omega 3 to keep your body is tip top condition.

I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of purity. My boyfriend laughs (in a cute way of course!) when he sees me scrutinising the labels on supplements because all to often they are pumped full of binders and fillers that just aren’t necessary. We take a supplement thinking they’re beneficial for health but not if it’s bound with a plethora of artificial nasties right? Unlike many fish oils Lion Heart is the purest of the pure. Not only is it awarded a whopping 5-star rating from the International fish oil standards for quality and purity it’s made using only fish oil (no beef or pork) with a wonderful taste of Sicilian lemon. No fishy after burps here guys!

It’s so fresh it actually tastes good. I happily knock it back neat (spot the ex student here!) but it also works really well mixed into a dressing and drizzled over your favourite salad. I also use it as a spread on my grain free bread. Bare Biology and I are going to tackle the war on inflammation together so I’ll be making lots of recipes with this delicious fish oil for you to try soon… stay tuned! You won’t find another Omega 3 with the purity, strength and great taste of Lion Heart fish oil, trust me I tried!
