Practicing Obstetrics and Gynecology in Bloomington Normal Illinois. Following Jesus daily. Living a healthy lifestyle with my husband, my 3 kids, and my patients.
I was encouraged at the Hearts conference and am working on step #1 and wanted to know what you think about Barleans Essential women's oil for a supplement/ fish oil. Any thoughts? I've used it and the chocolate raspberry flavor was great.... Plus I have it on hand :)
Joy,So sorry, I had tried to reply to this awhile ago and just figured out it didn't publish! Yes, I think Barlean's is a fine fish oil supplement, always great to use what's on hand if it measures up! The 2 Brands that I know well are Carlson's finest and Nordic Naturals. I have received better feedback from "fish oil newbies" on the taste of Carlson's, but personally I take Nordic Naturals each day. Hope that helps! How has habit #1 shaped up for you? Are you on a new habit now?
I keep trying to respond on my iphone or ipad and I just realized that my responses were never posted. So sorry, Joy! I think Barleans is just fine to finish out your bottle. The other fish oils I know a little better and am familiar with (Nordic Naturals and Carlson's finest). I know that they are assayed (or someone is checking to be sure that what they say is in them is in them--this can get sticky with vitamins and supplements). I hope that helps, Joy!
Hey! I thought I already posted, but it didn't show up apparently... in your talk at Hearts, you mentioned a local meat CSA, but I am not finding it on the resource page- could you please share which one you use/like? We eat a lot of vegetarian and are in a veggie CSA, but like the idea of getting some meat through a CSA. Thanks!
