I have talked about Omega-3s before especially as it pertains to helping Hubby and son with their bipolar. There are lots of different supplements and products with Omega-3s infused and of course, natural foods also. Whenever we have a chance to try out a new product with Omega-3 we do to be able to have a variety of ways to get more into our diets. Omega Infusion is our latest.
“The FDA qualified health benefit of Omega-3 fatty acids is a reduced risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). It is a fact that our bodies cannot naturally produce the nutrients found in Omega-3 so we must get them from outside sources. Recent studies have shown several potential benefits of Omega-3’s, including:
· Improvement of cognitive function in both children and adults
· Help with psychiatric disorders such as depression
· Increased mental focus and motivation
· Reduced stress levels and mental fatigue
· Reduced macular degeneration
· Strengthened red blood cells which may improve blood pressure, heart rate and vascular function
· Possible anticancer benefits
· Potential to counter inflammation
· Higher level of satiety and appetite reduction”
There are 2 different products, the Omega Infusion Shots and Omega Infusion Beverage. Both are sugar free and zero calories! I really like this myself because having given up Coke since before my weight loss surgery, I have had to find other beverages to drink throughout the day – it is harder than you would think to find because I try to look for sugar free and it also cannot be carbonated. The Omega Infusion Beverage works for me!
Omega Infusion Beverage
The Omega Infusion Beverage taste falls between a flavored water and a light juice. It is not too weak in flavor like I find some flavored waters, but it is also not as strong as even a light juice. It is refreshing. It comes in berry, fruit punch, citrus, and orange flavors – my favorite is berry. Each bottle is 2 servings which contain 40mg of Omega-3s EPA/DHA per serving. You can see that there is no carbs, sugars, or calories in it, just a tad bit of sodium.
Omega Infusion Shots
If you want a bigger dose of the Omega-3s and less liquid then try the Omega Infusion Shots. Each small 2 ounce bottle is 1 serving and has 250mg of Omega-3s EPA/DHA! These are also sugar free and just a tad bit of sodium. We tried the raspberry-lemon flavor and it was good, it also comes in pink grapefruit and peach mango. If you are aiming to get higher levels this is obviously the better choice I think.
This is a new product so it is not available everywhere just yet. Right now you can find it at Giant Stores, HEB, and Stop&Shop. I’m hoping they expand this to more places across the country soon.
This will be a product that Hubby has already asked me to continue to buy for him. He really likes the flavor and likes the addition of Omega-3s. I have not yet gotten T to try them – he has been busy these days – but based on his like of flavored waters I think he will like these as well. He also prefers supplements to prescriptions to help with his bipolar these days. I would recommend anyone wanting more Omega-3s to give Omega Infusion a try.
Do you take Omega-3 supplements? Would you try Omega Infusion?
