Fish oil, squid oil, even krill oil - nobody can argue the benefits of DHA fatty acids in their diet. But which is the best Omega 3 supplement? Dr. Sears explains what you should look for in an Omega 3 supplement and why it is so important.
Most people take a daily Omega-3 supplement for its anti-inflammatory properties, whether its fish oil, squid oil or krill oil; however, reports show that fish oil is increasingly polluted. There are dozens of articles on the Web about unsafe levels of industrial compounds, PCBs, and mercury in these oils. That includes lawsuits, customer reports and damning studies.
But according to one anti-aging specialist, Al Sears MD, there are ways to get healthy fats, and not always from traditional fish oil.
Dr. Sears explained, "I discovered one source in squid oil (also known as calamari oil or calamarine oil). Squid oil is at the top of my list of Omega-3s because this anti-inflammatory oil comes from sources that are not been exposed to pollution in the first place. Squid, you see, come from only the deepest, cleanest waters in the ocean.
Why is the location of where the source is found so critical?
Dr. Sears added, "Pollution doesn't mix evenly in water. It stays close to the surface where many of the fish used in fish oils swim. But I discovered a source of squid oil from squid that live very deep off the clear waters of Argentina. They swim up to 1,600 feet below the surface. That's five football fields deep, well BELOW the mercury, PCBs and toxins. This keeps them clean."
Dr. Sears concluded, "Squid oil is a potent source of anti-inflammatory fats, and that could be one of the best things about it. The high concentration of these fats gives greater benefit for heart and brain health…more than any fish oil ever could."
