5/ For Brain Boosting Benefits
For a healthy mind and body, experts such as Marie Reynolds (one of the UK’s most respected wellness experts), recommend taking omega 3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) such as her own brand “Marie Reynolds Ocean EFA”. These supplements contain powerful antioxidants (including astaxanthin) that protect cells from harmful free radicals that may be a factor in inducing chronic diseases. Unlike many other antioxidants, astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it can protect the eye, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage. Unlike fish oil, krill oil does not cause a fishy aftertaste, a common side effect of fish oil. Krill oil is also more easily absorbed by the body and contains higher amounts of astaxanthin than fish oil. Health benefits include better circulation, liver function, balanced blood sugar, better vision, mood-boosting benefits, healthy joints and a well-functioning nervous system.
