Friday Favorites: Barlean’s Omega Swirl

June 22, 2012

I know this is a super random product to talk about it, but I thought I would share my amazing fish oil find with you guys. I already talked a bit about how delicious it was, but failed to mention the brand or where to find it. Now’s the time!

The brand is Barlean’s and it’s the Ultra High Potency Omega Swirl Fish Oil Supplement in the key lime flavor. This stuff has a thicker texture, so it’s not oily and gross. It tastes like key lime pie filling to me and makes me excited to take my fish oil every morning!

The EPA/DHA is 1,500mg per serving which is more than what was recommended to me. What are EPA and DHA? They are essential fatty acids from the Omega 3 fat. This stuff is important to maintain a healthy function of the brain and retina but also a healthy cardiovascular system, human growth and intellectual development, and is also a great source of energy.

I’ve always heard that Omega’s should be included in your supplement regime but they never made their way in there until it was recommended for my skin issues. When I was trying to find a product that wasn’t going to force me to take a million nasty horse pills that left me burping up fishiness, or choking down a spoonful of oil, I was recommended this product. The girls at the health food store also told me that Omega’s are important during pregnancy as they help increase the IQ of your child. I should have been taking this way sooner!

Remember, I’m not a doctor so make sure you check with your own before switching up your supplement routine. But if you are in the market for a new fish oil product I definitely recommend this stuff!
