Over 14,000 studies and reports have been published that tout the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids. This list is crazy long'?¦ coronary heart health, normal development of cognitive, vision and neurological health, avoiding certain cancers, Alzheimer'??s and dementia, lupus, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis and obesity.
Since we can'??t do this one ourselves, we have to get Omega 3s from outside sources. Think sardines, salmon, flax seeds and walnuts. Well, it'??s not always easy to lug a salmon around (and popping those fish oil-filled capsules is just one more thing to remember...not to mention their fishy aftertaste). So wouldn'??t it be great if we could get some of that into our diet easily throughout the day.
Now'??s the season during which we reach for bottled water to stay hydrated. I think it'??s great that yours can now do double-duty. OmegaWater is the only sugar-free, calorie-free, carb-free, and fizz-free beverage that gives you a boost of Omega-3s.
It breaks down like this. With each serving you get 100mg of Omega-3 EPA/DHA as well as over 100 percent of your recommended daily intake for Vitamins B3, B5, B6, B12, C and E in a highly purified water. I won't lie. There's a teensy weensy negligible bit of that aftertaste you get with fish oil capsules. I think it's unavoidable. This is some powerful stuff. But the waters are very refreshing and natural tasting with flavors in Lemon Squeeze, Orange Splash, Fruit Fusion and Berry Breeze.
Not a sugary sports drink, not carbonated, not a big salmon you have to lug around, not capsules you have to remember. Nothing but healthy. I'll drink to that.
Omegawater.com is available at drugstores for $1.99 for 20 fl. oz
