Elderberry has been used as a medicinal herb for hundreds of years and studies demonstrate that it can have a measurable effect when used to treat the flu, allergies and overall respiratory health.
I get asked dozens of times every week the following questions:
- Which fish oil supplement should I buy?
- How much fish oil should I take?
If you subscribe to my newsletter (see the sidebar) then you'll notice that I sometimes make recommendations of good fish oils to try – along with a checklist to help you choose a quality one too.
As for how much fish oil you should take, well, I'll answer that right now.
Did you know that Eskimos love fish oil?
Way back in the 70's a couple of Danish physicians, Hans Olaf Bang and Jørn Dyerberg, noticed that the Inuit population (that's Eskimo's to you and me) were consuming a ridiculous amount of fat – and yet heart disease was almost non-existant.
In fact, the researchers noted that just 5% of Eskimo's died from heart disease.
Compare that to your average American back then – 40% – and you can see that the Eskimo's were really onto something.
I've been getting dozens of questions via email from people furiously tapping away at their keyboards, wanting to know all sorts of crazy stuff about fish oil. I LOVE this. :)
I'll be answering these publicly on the blog to help others who might have the same questions. Let's go!
Todays question is from Becky Jones:
I've read conflicting studies and reports into fish oil and whether it has any benefit to your health. I guess what I really want to know is if fish oil is good for you?
