Viva Labs is different from other fish oil capsules. WHY? Because it has 900 mg of Omega-3 Fatty Acids. This is VERY important to me. Heart disease runs in my family, and I am trying to stay FAR FAR away from it. Omega-3 Fatty Acids have shown that they have the same cardiovascular benefits that DHA’s and EPA’s have.
There are tons of products on the market saying that they have the Omega Fatty Acids that we need. In truth, most only have 30% of the Omega-3 fatty acids that Viva Labs Fish Oil has. They are instead filled with 70% fillers and saturated fats.
Did you know that these companies were claiming the untrue? Probably not. I buy vitamins all the time thinking the FDA must have MADE them tell the truth right? They claim all kinds of false things. They pretend that their products are the best, when really they are filling their capsules with fillers instead of the real thing.
If I am going to buy something, I want the REAL thing. I don’t want a product claiming to be the REAL thing. To check out all the great benefits of using a fish oil supplement ~ click here.
Evidence has shown that Omega-3 Fatty Acids help promote stimulation of the circulation of blood. This is a tremendous help to people who have circulatory problems (example: varicose veins). It also helps to reduce blood pressure and heart attack.
There are also TONS of other health problems that Omega Fatty Acids can help reduce such as certain cancers (prostate, breast, and colon). “A 2011 study, the largest ever done involving 3,400 men, examined the association of dietary fats and prostate cancer risk, and found that men with the highest blood percentages of DHA have two-and-a-half-times the risk of developing aggressive, high-grade prostate cancer compared to men with the lowest DHA levels.” (Learned from HERE)
I WANT to be healthy as I can be. I want to see my children grow older. I want to witness them graduating high school, going to college, getting married..etc. How can I do that if I don’t take the precautions of something that I almost KNOW is heading my way? 2 of my aunts and uncles on my dads side as well as my grandmother had valve replacement surgery and triple bypass. I believe in Omega-3 fatty acids.
This is one of the best forms of fish oil that I've tried, and I’ve tried many. Most smell and taste horrible, and have a fishy aftertaste. I have belched up fish tasting bubbles after taking some of them and almost got sick. The Viva labs capsules slide down smoothly, do NOT taste or smell bad, and most definitely do not have the after taste.
If your looking for something to add to your health regimen, I would definitely recommend this. I know this is something I will be adding to mine. I want to live life, NOT in a hospital room!
