“Omega-3 fatty acids are absolutely essential and are required for optimal health and in some cases disease management.” -Keri Marshall, MS, ND
My interview with Dr. Marshall centers around the importance of omega-3 fatty acids for both women and children. The deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids in the average American diet combined with the excessive amounts of omega-6 fatty acids creates an imbalance that has dramatic effects in human health. The importance of omega-3 fatty acids for the developing fetus and the developing child cannot be over stated. Many issues with brain development are related to fats in the diet. For women, omega-3 fatty acids are essential. In this interview, Dr. Marshall will discuss the importance of omega-3 fatty acids from fish and fish oil supplements.
Nordic Naturals is a company that focuses only on fish oil and other naturals sources of omega-3s. They are one of the most highly respected manufacturers in the industry. They have a wide selection of formulas and strengths. Their oils are very pure and good tasting. You should never settle for a fish oil that tastes or smells bad.
