This month in Rise UP our theme is Prevention & Longevity. (If you haven't check out my function health education program Rise UP you can find out more here.)
Here's a sneak peek at my newest Rise UP master class series: Herbs & Supplements for Prevention & Longevity
Fish Oil 🐟
Why do we love fish oil of prevention and longevity? When it comes to multi-purpose supplements this one is up at the top of the list.
✅ brain health & cognitive function
✅ heart health
✅ may help lower inflammation
✅ eye health
Fish oil is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, DHA & EPA and for an added vitamin boost fish liver oil is also rich in vitamins A & D.
Why is that important? While these are essential to the body we can’t make them on our own so we need to get them from food sources like 2-3 servings of cold water fatty fish or supplements.
In this masterclass, we take a look at several studies that highlight the benefits of fish oil.
Listen to the masterclass below!
