How to get your ‘up’ back

Flat low mood, slowed down thinking, avoidance of social situations,  a negatively altered perception of reality. The Mayo Clinic defines depression as “a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest.” This debilitating condition affects your whole being — how you behave, think and feel — and leads inevitably to emotional and physical problems. Depressed individuals struggle with completing day-to-day tasks, feeling as if life has lost all meaning. INFLAMMATION & DEPRESSION ARE LINKED Numerous studies have show that inflammation is a major contributor to a number of health problems and can have a profound effect on your mental well-being too.  As a result, depression is increasingly recognized as a problem rooted in chronic inflammation. OMEGA-UP™ contains high concentrations of EPA (a 20-carbon essential fatty acid building block), which is a vital component of anti-inflammatory hormones in the body called eicosanoids.  Eicosanoids or “master hormones” are produced by every cell in the body and control everything from the immune system to the brain, heart and reproductive system. EPA helps the body synthesise eicosanoid hormones which help to reduce inflammation, and therefore offer a natural solution for fighting depression. HOW MUCH EPA IS EFFECTIVE? There are 3 types of Omega 3 fatty acids:  DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid), EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and ALA (Alpha-linolenic Acid). Clinical studies show that EPA is effective against depression when taken in high doses, specifically in a ratio of at least 6 times more EPA than DHA. OMEGA-UP™ boasts a 7:1 EPA:DHA ratio, offering the ultimate formula for feeling up!  EPA has shown to be equally as effective as antidepressants and a combination of EPA plus an anti-depressant doubles the therapeutic effect!  OMEGA-UP™ is a Triple Strength Omega-3 EPA containing three times more EPA than ordinary fish oil / fish oil capsules. ANIMAL VS PLANT-BASED OMEGA 3 What is the difference between animal and plant-based omega 3?  Animal-based omega-3 is a potent, all-natural anti-inflammatory. While many nuts contain omega-3 (with the exception of pecans, which are very low in omega-3 and omega-6), your body cannot always efficiently convert the ALA in plants to the EPA and DHA found in marine animals such as fatty fish and krill. MORE REASONS TO OPT FOR OMEGA-UP™ OMEGA-UP™ is sustainably sourced from anchovies and sardines (which are low in toxins and heavy metals) from the deep clean waters of the South Pacific. It is then molecularly distilled to further remove heavy metals and toxins and has no fishy aftertaste. I am so impressed with OMEGA-UP™. My daughter recommended that I try OMEGA-UP™ as I was experiencing mild depression and had been feeling this for quite a while. I wasn’t convinced that omega-3 EPA would lift my spirits as I had been taking good quality omega-3’s for a few years and did not think your product would be very different. I started using OMEGA-UP and after a few weeks I was feeling on top of the world but I still wasn’t convinced that this was the effects of using EPA until I ran out and the heaviness started returning. I started taking OMEGA-UP again and in no time I started noticing the difference in my feelings of well-being and general happiness. I am now completely convinced of the importance of your product’s 7:1 EPA to DHA ratio!Rosie S, Port Elizabeth [Photo credit: lesly-b-juarez via Unsplash] 30 Aug 2018 A HAPPY TUMMY MEANS A HAPPY YOU 27 Jul 2018 HELP!
