True Sol Omega 3 Fish Oil + Giveaway #Truesolomega3


As a Registered Pharmacy Technician, I see a lot of orders for supplements come across my computer screen. Omega 3 Fish Oil, Vitamin D, Thiamine, Folic Acid, Magnesium, etc. Doctors prescribe these supplements quite often and I have always been curious to try some of them. When True Sol offered me the chance to try out their Omega-3 Fish Oil, I was excited to accept. 

First, let's get the legalities out of the way. Please note that you should contact your Doctor before starting any supplement. The claims in this post have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
So, what does Omega-3 Fish Oil do for your body? Here are the claims (see above disclosure statement) according to True Sol:
1. Promotes Heart Health - heart attack, stroke, coronary heart disease, arrhythmia
2. Increases Brain Function - cognitive decline and dementia, Alzheimer's
3. Helps Inflammation and Joints - stiffness and joint pain from osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, symptoms of asthma and pneumonia
4. Decreases Depression and Mood - reduction in depression scores and daily stresses
5. Promotes Healthy Skin - photoageing, esp. elastosis, wrinkle formation and chronological aging, skin disorders like acne and psoriasis
I have also read in numerous beauty magazines that Omega-3 Fatty Acids also give you healthy hair and nails also. This was the primary reason that I wanted to try them. My nails have become drier and brittle as I have aged. They even sometimes have some discoloration. My hair is pretty healthy, but I figure the Omega-3 will help to keep them that way. I would also benefit from the Inflammation and joint pain relief that is attributed above.

 This True Sol supplement contains 1500mg of Omega-3 Fatty Acids, 800mg of Eicosapentaenoic Acid, 600mg of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and 100mg of other Omega-3 Fatty Acids. A serving size is 2 capsules and contains 20 calories and 2 grams of fat.

My absolute FAVORITE thing about this Omega-3 Fish Oil capsule is the smell/taste. I have smelled Fish Oil capsules in the past and they typically smell like the fish that they are derived from. Eww. Luckily, these capsules are scented/flavored. They are supposed to be lemon, but they seem to smell more like orange to me. They are certainly citrus..not fish. There is little taste since you swallow the capsules whole, but they are not unpleasant.

The capsules are a little large. However, this seems to be standard with Fish Oil capsules. They are soft and I have no issues getting them down. 

So, how have they worked for me? I have actually noticed a huge difference with my nails! They are growing out to the super long lengths that they used to when I was younger. I purposely did not paint them or use anything on them since I have been taking this True Sol Omega-3. Here is a close up of 2 of my nails right now.

See how long my nails are? They are long enough to where they are driving me nuts and I will probably trim them and paint them soon. 

I am not sure if I received any inflammation benefits from the Omega-3. My muscles in my back have been behaving recently, but I have also been getting on the exercise bike a lot. I am not sure if my lack of pain is from the exercise, the Omega-3 or both. Either way, it probably isn't hurting.

After surviving a major accident and dealing with inflammation on a daily basis, I really need something that works. Do they send out samples? I have boxes of stuff that did not work.

I've never tried fish oil but I've always wanted to! I hear it has excellent health benefits!

I would like to try this because of it's health benefits and because I think I may be missing it in my diet. I don't eat a lot of foods that contain omega 3.
