Did you know that according to research today’s food is up to 63% less nutritious than it was 70 years ago? (Dr Arden Anderson: realmedicinerealhealth.com)
You’ve read that right! The food we eat no longer has the nutrients we require because of changes in farming methods. Since the end of World War II, the use of chemical fertilisers has become more widespread, and in turn has affected the quantity of natural vitamins and minerals found in fruit and vegetables. Even worse, the food we eat often contains toxins from these harmful fertilisers and pesticides. Toxins and the degradation of the quality of food can actually cause health problems like dehydration, acidity in the body, mental issues and behavioural issues. Even though the food we eat may seem nutritious and fresh, it often lacks in nutrients.
The lack of required nutrition and the presence of toxins make our bodies more prone to oxidative stress, which damages our cells, cell membranes and the plasma in our blood. This can lead to diseases like Parkinson’s disease, diabetes and arthritis. It can also contribute to premature Alzheimer’s disease. In order to combat these stressors, our bodies need antioxidants to inhibit the oxidation of our cells and organs, the same way protective coating would prevent rust from forming on metals.
Eating foods that are rich in antioxidants helps add to the antioxidants that are already being synthesised in the body. However, since there may not be enough nutrients in the food we eat, a natural supplement can give your body the extra antioxidants it needs to combat oxidation, as well as optimise the function of your cells and organs.
There are many antioxidant supplements out there that can provide various benefits, but Young Living has developed one supplement that combines the power of all core daily nutrients. This supplement is OmegaGize3, which provides your body with omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin D3, and CoQ10. These core daily nutrients are essential for hormone balance, cellular regeneration, and organ function while providing your body with powerful antioxidants.
Omega-3 fatty acids are found in many different fish oils, and they help support a healthy cardiovascular system. They lower triglyceride levels that can cause heart disease, as well as decrease the risk of abnormal heart rhythm. They slow down the plaque that builds in the arteries that can cause high blood pressure. When it comes to mental and behavioural disorders, Omega-3 fatty acids can also help reduce mood disorders, depression and bipolar disorder, as well as reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Omega-3 has also been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, obesity and chronic inflammation, such as arthritis.
Young Living OmegaGize3 contains 3 other ingredients that are needed to work synergistically with omega-3 fatty acids. German chamomile essential oil and clove essential oil (also known as eugenol) help slow down cholesterol oxidation in the blood while also reducing the rancidity of the fish oil in each capsule. Vitamin E with mixed tocopherols is added to every OmegaGize3 capsule to counteract omega-3 fatty acids propensity to deplete vitamin E levels in the body. And as you may have seen in various commercials, Vitamin E is great for healthy skin, nails and hair. It is also easily absorbed in the cell membrane to protect the cells from oxidative damage.
Vitamin D is essential for the metabolism and absorption of calcium and phosphorous, the formation, growth and repair of bones and immune function. It’s a powerful antioxidant, the lack of which can lead to weaker bones, cognitive decline, depression, and an increased risk of cancer, heart disease and MS. Vitamin D is also important for maintaining a healthy body weight and has a host of other benefits (What is Vitamin D? What are the benefits?). Vitamin D3 is considered most effective for humans.
CoQ10 acts as an energy restoration nutrient for the cells in your body. Some organs such as the heart, kidneys and liver have higher energy requirements as they are constantly working. With the help of CoQ10, these organs are better able to work at an optimal level. CoQ10 is also a super antioxidant and boosts our body’s ability to produce important skin molecules like collagen and elastin for skin health. CoQ10 is made in the body but production generally starts to decrease after 30 years of age.
You’re probably wondering if this special combination of vitamins and minerals can really make a difference to your health. Here is just one example of someone combining NingXia Red and OmegaGize3 to help lower their blood pressure:
“Thought you may be interested in the medical report since commencing on Ningxia and OmegaGize3 on 6-Aug-13. Test taken on 16-Sep. My blood pressure is far better – was 149/84 in June now 130/70. Also, since starting Ningxia Red I have cut dosage of Crestor [heart] and Amilodipine [blood pressure] medication from daily, to every 2-3 days. Crestor is known to cause muscle weakness in others, as well as me, so my aim is to eliminate it when it is safe to do so. I also aim to eliminate Amilodipine if blood pressure stays down below 140/90.”

“Products like OmegaGize are EXCELLENT because they give our kids high doses of Omegas and also aid in digestion. Enzymes are excellent too because our stomachs are our second brain. If something is going wrong in our gut, our brains cannot function at full capacity.”
Staying fit isn’t only measured by how much we weigh, or how our muscles look. More often, it’s measured by how well our bodies function. With the help of supplements like OmegaGize3, we can be confident that our bodies are properly protected from diseases and oxidative stress. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, OmegaGize3 can make your body feel and look younger and stronger!
