There’s a good kind of fat??

One of the things that has always freaked me out about nutritional supplements is that they are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. According to the FDA website,

Under DSHEA [the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act], a firm is responsible for determining that the dietary supplements it manufactures or distributes are safe and that any representations or claims made about them are substantiated by adequate evidence to show that they are not false or misleading.This means that dietary supplements do not need approval from FDA before they are marketed.

Therefore, it’s hard to know which products are legit. As I have mentioned before (Back in Action) I fell into a business selling nutritional supplements after  experiencing such great results from my own product use. Prior to taking anything though, I spent time researching the doctors and scientists who make the products to be sure that what I was putting in my body would not be harmful in any way. I obviously liked what I found out!

Today’s product feature is OmegaPlex. OmegaPlex is an Omega 3 fatty acid supplement. If you are not familiar with the benefits of Omega 3’s you must educate yourself! They are essential for optimal health. Here are a few benefits:

  • They promote healthy skin, hair and nails
  • They have been shown to decrease symptoms of depression
  • They can significantly reduce joint pain
  • They are important for visual and neurological development of infants
  • They have been shown to improve lung function which has been especially helpful for asthma sufferers

Look into it! These essential fatty acids have more health benefits than I have room to list!

Going back to the original topic though, how to we know which products are going to live up to their promises…

Dr. Oz featured an article on his website entitled a Smart Guide to Buying Supplements. The article written by Dr. Tod Cooperman, President of, describes the results of lab testing done on popular nutritional supplements out on the market. Among the products tested was Advocare’s OmegaPlex. Cooperman writes,

Of the products tested, Life Extension’s Super Omega and AdvoCare Omegaplex Omega-3s are among those that passed’s tests. 
That’s great news! I am very grateful to have a product line I can trust. For more info on OmegaPlex and a ton of other great products check out Advocare.
Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend!
