Omega 3 is essential for a healthy body but our bodies cannot produce it, we have to get it from our diet. On their own, fish oils will not make you lose weight. However if combined with a healthy diet and exercise regime they have been shown to further lower cholesterol and shown to increase weight loss when taken in conjunction with exercise. Oily fish like salmon and mackerel are rich in omegas but to supplement your diet try Ideal Omega 3, £23.70 for 60 capsules, taking one a day. In addition to their ability to help you reach your fitness goals they also increase the production of vital neurotransmitters (chemicals that transmit messages) to the brain which improve overall health.
Sea Kelp is a naturally growing cold water plant that contains over sixty vitamins and minerals. Iodine is one of them; which has been shown to be important in the function of the thyroid gland which controls the metabolism. Because of its ability to regulate the thyroid, sea kelp has (quite rightly) earned itself the reputation of being a sliming aid. As well as helping with weight loss, sea kelp also contains magnesium, iron, copper, potassium and zinc as well as more calcium than any other food and it’s high in lignans which are plant compounds that have anti-cancer qualities. We recommend taking Higher Nature Ocean Kelp, £6.70 for 180 tablets, from Canadian kelp. Enq: victoriahealth.com
