Aside from my daily multivitamins, I’m pretty bad at taking any supplements. To be honest, I only take them because they’re basically candy.
I know we’re constantly reminded that a balanced diet is the key to a healthy life, but living that mantra isn’t always the easiest thing.
As a recent expo for the BMO Half Marathon, which I ran last week, I met the lovely people at Sea-Licious and was reminded that I haven’t been taking my Omega-3 tablets. I’m pretty sure they’re at the bottom of the drawer on my side of the bathroom sink.
They explained that Omega-3s are actually super-important for a long list of reasons. Here are just a few, courtesy of Men’s Fitness Magazine:
- Promotes heart-health
A study from the Harvard School of Public Health worked out that eating 2g of omega-3 fatty acids reduced the chances of dying from heart disease by over one-third.
- Protects against cancer
Research has shown that fish oil can help prevent three of the most common forms of cancer: breast, colon and prostate.
- Improves mental health
Those clever people at the University of Sheffield, UK found that fish oil supplements can alleviate the symptoms of depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorders.

Luckily, Sea-Licious Omega-3 actually tastes good. What? Yes, I was surprised too. I’m challenging myself to take the Tropical Colada flavour every morning as the first thing I do when I sit down at my desk. I know if it’s at home, I’ll forget, so it’s right next to my laptop.
Do you want to join me on my challenge? I’m giving away:
- 1 x 250ml bottle of Sea-Licious Omega-3 in your choice of Tropical Colada, Raspberry Lemonade, Tangerine Lime, or Natural Maple.
