If you’re tired of taking a barrage of supplemental pills every day, then check out Barlean’s Organic Oils’ Total Omega Swirl. This liquid supplement provides a balanced source of omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids in an orange cream flavor that you’ll look forward to taking every day.

Total Omega Swirl derives its omega fatty acids from three sources: organic flaxseed oil, borage seed oil and fish oils, specifically salmon and cod liver oils. The fish oils provide EPA and DHA omega-3, which are beneficial for heart health. Borage seed oil is a source for an omega-6 fatty acid called GLA (gamma linolenic acid). Omega-6s promote healthy skin and hair growth and help regulate metabolism. Flaxseed oil provides all three omegas, including omega-9.

The lower the omega’s number, the more essential it is to supplement your regular diet with that fatty acid. Omega-3 is not naturally produced by our bodies, making it the most critical omega fatty acid to consume. On the other hand, our bodies naturally produce omega-9, and most American diets are rich in omega-6 (thanks primarily to vegetable cooking oils), making these two less critical to consume. Regardless of each omega’s natural presence in our lives, it’s important to get a balanced intake of each one.

Apparent from its balance of omega-3, 6 and 9, what’s impressive about the Total Omega Swirl is its flavor. This liquid supplement’s orange cream flavor is reminiscent of summertime creamsicles—and without the unpleasant aftertaste that you might expect from a health supplement. Barlean’s recommends taking a tablespoon of their liquid supplement each day. The supplement can be consumed straight, or you can mix it with yogurt, oatmeal, fruit smoothies or anything else you can think of! A 16-ounce bottle of Barlean’s Organic Oils Total Omega Swirl costs $29.95 and can be purchased online or at a Barleans retailer near your.
