If I had to take one supplement.. It would be Fish oil

It does not sound that tasty..  but I really think that this stuff is a super supplement. 

I first heard about it when my husband and I went to Vancouver to spend time with some other trainers. We met this awesome woman, Kelly Frankson She is an amazing athlete and Olympic lifter.  

She also knows so much about nutrition and how what we eat makes such a difference in our performance in life and during our fitness training.  

So Some of the things I learned about Fish oil...  
  • It is rich in Omega 3
  • is a healthy fat.. and our body needs good fat. (we even need it to loose weight - if that's a goal of yours)
  • it helps reduce inflammation and recover from workouts  
Here is a great blog that has a great article by Ryan Andrews all about the science and benefits of Fish oil.   I hope to learn all this better so that I can say it as eloquently as these smart people.. but in the mean time I am SO THANKFUL that they are out there.
