Every year, millions of people take dietary supplements hoping to improve their health. The problem is, most of us have no idea what’s in the pills we’re taking.
This is particularly true for omega-3 fatty acids, one of the top three supplements I recommend for women of all ages. So many of the omega-3 products on the shelf are low-quality, rancid oils that are a waste of money and can cause more harm than good. On top of that, there are serious issues around the sustainability of the fish oil production process, which is the traditionally recommended source of omega-3.
If you’re going to invest in your health, it’s crucial to find a high-quality product but also a company that you can get behind, and that’s what I found with Örlö Nutrition. Today I’m joined by Örlö’s Corinna Bellizzi to discuss the benefits of algae-based omega-3 fatty acids.
In this conversation, Corinna and I talk about the role of omega-3 in hormone production, the benefits and challenges of different sources of omega-3 supplements, why we should pay attention to the bioavailability of the supplements we take, the advantages of polar omegas over standard fish oils, how Örlö’s sustainable production process works, why you don’t need to worry about fish burps and stomach issues with polar omegas, the problems caused by low-quality omega-3 supplements, and more. If you aren’t already taking omega-3, I want you on an omega-3. I’m switching from fish oil to algae from Örlö, and I highly recommend you consider it too.
