Did you know that every part of the body requires omega-3s for optimal function? Omega-3s are necessary for healthy, glowing skin, hair, and nails, as well as joint, hormone, heart, and brain health.

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential nutrients, but your body does not make them. You must get them from your food. 

Plant foods, such as nuts, seeds, and leafy green vegetables, as well as fatty fish like sardines, anchovies, mackerel, and salmon are rich in omega-3s. Every time you eat a meal, try to include a source of these beautiful fats. Adding a scoop of seeds, like chia, hemp, or flaxseeds, to your morning cereal or smoothie is an easy way to get some in. Another way to include more omega-3s is to enjoy a serving of wild-caught salmon at least two times per week.

Our bodies, however, require even more omega-3s than what we can get from our diet. This is why I developed a high-quality omega-3 supplement called Sea-licious. Sea-licious is naturally fruit flavoured, provides your daily omega-3 requirements, and contains astaxanthin – one of nature’s most potent antioxidants – coupled with vitamin D3 to give your body exactly what it needs. Just one teaspoon per day will deliver at least 1500 mg of powerful omega-3s eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

With research sharing all the tremendous benefits of omega-3s, it’s nearly impossible to choose only one reason I love Sea-licious. But as of late, the benefits for my skin and brain health have become of great importance to me.

Skin and Hair

Our skin is the largest organ in the body. It is important to remember that what we place on it topically will get absorbed into our bodies. Similarly, what we feed ourselves impacts our health and the look of our skin. Omega-3s are essential for moisturizing the skin, preventing aging, and decreasing wrinkles and inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Overall, omega-3s will help lock in moisture and improve the skin’s barrier function. They are also a powerful natural skin solution for blemishes and acne. During the summer months, when ultraviolet (UV) rays are at their peak, the combination of omega-3 and the antioxidant astaxanthin in Sea-licious will help provide UV protection and decrease the risk of sunburn.

Omega-3 fatty acids are also beneficial for hair health as they lock moisture in the scalp, prevent dandruff, and support hair follicles, resulting in thick, shiny, luxurious hair.

Mind your Omega-3s

The brain requires more omega-3s than any other organ in the body. With sufficient omega-3s, the brain’s membranes perform at their peak levels, which is essential for regulating mood and emotions as well as staving off depression. Research has shown that low blood levels of omega-3s increase anxiety and stress. With all the environmental and other external factors currently contributing to stress and anxiety, supporting my family and my mental health with Sea-licious is a top priority.
