Please watch the Video above as it has all the information on why we are recommending you are taking Omega – 3 Fatty acids.
Simply stated, Advcoare’s OmegaPlex was one of two products recommended on the Dr. Oz show that passed the Consumer Lab tests.
As most of you know, Get You In Shape has partnered with Advocare nutritional supplements to help our clients look, feel, and perform better. With thousands of products and company’s on the market, we choose Advocare because of the science and because of who freely endorsers the products. We are not going to go into”why we recommend Advocare” as we have had blog posts in the past that explain that. We going to go into why we recommend Omega – 3 Fatty Acids and how you can benefit from them.
As you saw from the Dr. Oz Video, Dr. Oz thinks we can not live without Omega 3’s. Dr. Oz say’s it is ” THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO AS A SUPPLEMENT.”
You can ask your Get You In Shape trainer if you want to get a bottle of OmegaPlex or contact us but below is more information on the consumer lab report and about the Omega 3 Fatty Acids we recommend and why.

I found a great article by Dr. Robert Hackman, Nutrition Researcher at UC Davis.
The first study we want to bring to your attention demonstrated that science behind the cardiovascular health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids supports recommended daily levels of 500 mg, according to a recent review. “Compelling evidence” from studies involving almost 40,000 participants supports daily EPA plus DHA intakes of at least 500 mg per day for healthy individuals, while people with known heart disease or heart failure should aim for up to 1,000 mg daily, according to a review published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
“This isn’t just hype; we now have tremendous and compelling evidence from very large studies, some dating back 20 and 30 years, that demonstrate the protective benefits of omega-3 fish oil in multiple aspects of preventive cardiology,” said Carl Lavie, lead author of the review and medical director of Cardiac Rehabilitation and Prevention at the Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans.
Dr Lavie and his co-workers noted that the most compelling evidence for the cardiovascular benefits of the fatty acids came from four randomised controlled trials with EPA and DHA, which involved around 40,000 participants. Following evaluation of evidence from retrospective epidemiologic studies and from large randomised controlled trials, the reviewers recommended that healthy individuals should consume 500 mg daily of omega-3 fish oil containing EPA and DHA, while people with known heart disease or heart failure aim for between 800 and 1,000 mg per day.
“Further studies are needed to determine optimal dosing and the relative ratio of DHA and EPA omega-3 PUFA that provides maximal cardioprotection in those at risk of CV disease as well in the treatment of atherosclerotic, arrhythmic, and primary myocardial disorders,” concluded the researchers.
The next study we’d like to refer you to concerns the role of omega-3?s in weight management.
In this current study, 124 adults were enrolled: 21 had a healthy weight, 40 were overweight, and 63 were obese. Blood samples were taken from all the participants after they had fasted for at least ten hours. The researchers noted a relationship between the levels of total omega-3 in the blood as well as blood levels of DHA and EPA with body mass index (BMI), waist size, and hip circumference.
Overall, the obese participants had omega-3 levels that were nearly 1 percent lower than those in the healthy-weight volunteers, 4.53 percent versus 5.25 percent. When the study participants were classified according to their omega-3 levels alone, the researchers noted that higher omega-3 levels were associated with a smaller waist, lower hip size, and a healthier BMI.

And if you’re seeking a way to add additional high quality omega-3 containing fish oil to your daily diet – check out our OmegaPlex.
Here are the details about Advocare’s OmegaPlex
OmegaPlex ® omega-3 fatty acid supplement is a safe, convenient, easy way to get the omega-3 fatty acids that may be missing from your diet, especially if you consume fish less than twice a week. It contains both 600 mg of EPA and 400 mg DHA long-chain omega-3 fatty acids per serving for maximum benefit.* Because these nutrients are involved in transporting nutrients, OmegaPlex is an important component for core nutrition.* It also helps promote healthy hair, skin and nails, and supports a healthy immune system.* It plays a key role in cardiovascular activity by supporting normal blood flow and healthy blood pressure.* In fact, consuming omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.** By supporting a healthy metabolism, OmegaPlex can aid weight management.*
OmegaPlex meets the highest quality standards of product safety and efficacy. Each softgel starts with high-quality marine lipid concentrate, which must meet strict analytical testing requirements for environmental contaminants, quantity of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and oxidation as indicators of safety, purity, potency and freshness. OmegaPlex also contains the antioxidant vitamin E in its most active form to further ensure omega-3 fatty acid stability.* The quality values of OmegaPlex are consistent with or exceed the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) voluntary monograph values.
Is this you?
Someone who wants to increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids for better health
Someone interested in maintaining overall wellness and healthy core nutrition
Someone who does not consume a minimum of two servings of fish per week
Someone who has taken omega-3 supplements in the past, but is looking for a superior source
Is the fish oil in OmegaPlex ® Omega-3 Fatty Acid supplement pharmaceutical grade?
There is no commonly accepted “pharmaceutical grade” criterion for marine lipids. Since companies use various methods for quality testing and for reporting results, current product labeling is inconsistent across the industry. However, the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), comprised of a group of dietary supplement industry manufacturers, has drafted a voluntary monograph that has helped establish testing protocols and stringent standards as indicators of quality omega-3 fatty acid supplements.
OmegaPlex is of excellent quality and purity, and the values are consistent with the CRN voluntary monograph values. Furthermore, the marine oils used in OmegaPlex are tested to ensure the absence of heavy metals, pesticides and other potential contaminants.
