I’ll be honest.  I’ve taken fish oil and basked in the benefits of the best omega 3 dietary supplements on and off, but it’s only due to my forgetfullness to refill on them as I should, and the good old fashioned busy excused that I haven’t continuously taken them these past few years.  When I get older, I will not afford such luxuries, and I’ll take care to take them continuously, as I do believe that they are that much more important to combat the aging process and keep our organs and our heart healthy in our later years. 

As a thirty something though, the one thing I’ve really noticed about taking omega 3 fish oil supplements is that it really makes my skin more supple.  I do have to wait about a week or two before I start to notice the difference when taking them consistently and at recommended dosage for several days, but it is a noticeable difference, and one that always makes me ask myself why I sometimes forget to refill on them when I run out sometimes!

Omega 3 fatty acids are an essential fatty acid that we can get through several foods, but also that we can supplement our diet with if we don’t get enough of them every day.  They are abundant in natural foods and grains, most particularly fish of certain kinds, and grains of certain kinds like flax seed and other fine grains that are unrefined and in the rough, so to speak. 

You do want to be careful when you are choosing an omega 3 supplement, and those that are vegetarians or vegans may want to opt instead for a non-fish based supplement, but I will say the fish oil ones seem to do the job best, at least for me.  But you do not want to take this lightly.  You really don’t want to go cheap when it comes to the best omega 3 supplements, because they may not be of the right concentration or balance to be able to provide the same benefits as a food that contained omega 3 fatty acids naturally would.  For this reason, just make sure you do your research before buying, as you will be wasting your money if you don’t buy a quality supplement.
