Cyber Monday Got You Stressed? Oil up my friend!!

Knock knock.  Who's there?  Nemo. Nemo who?  I NEMO FISH OIL FOOL!! Yeah I made that up.  Don't be jello.  But for real though.  The holidays are upon us so you know what that means.  Shopping. Which means lines which means waiting which means being late which means craziness which means stress which means a too few many eggnogs which means a headache .....the list goes on.  I know we all tend to get a little stressed around the holidays and I have just the thing for you to prevent you from stroking out.  FISH OIL!! Yes that's right.  People that eat a lot of fish oil are healthier and live longer and have less cardiovasvular disease.  Look it up. Think Inuit.  Be Inuit.  Be the eskimo.  If yo don't take fish oil go buy some and start taking it.  Everybody in America should do it. Everyone. (yes, that means you)  Nutritional experts say that the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 should be as close to a ratio of 1:1 and certainly no more than 4:1.  Most of us Americans are way over the 4:1.  Just think, when was the last time you had a nice slab of salmon?  How about the last time you had some walnuts?  I thought so.  Hey no one is perfect but we can all benefit from taking this stuff.  Your brain loves it, improves memory.  Your heart loves it, prevents Cardiovascular Disease and the stiffening of the arteries.  Your kid that can't pay attention to jack loves it, some studies have show it helps those with ADHD focus.  And your muscles love it, it's an anti-imflammatory.  Next time you run a 50 miler, or do a slamming workout on the track take some fish oil and call me in the morning.  I am not a doctor.  That being said don't blame me if any of the advice I give you on this site doesn't make you a superstar or has adverse effects.  Different strokes for different folks my running renegades.  But those strokes will be few and far between if you take your fish oil (see what I did there?).  Peace and good things!
