By Drs. Oz & Roizen, the “You Docs” (Excerpted from “Four Medical Breakthroughs you should know about”)
Recently, we were totally blown away by four medical breakthroughs we think you should know about.
Purified Omega 7
The “new” good fat: You’ve already heard plenty about DHA, the great-for-you omega-3 fatty acid in fatty fish and algae or fish-oil capsules. Now, research from Harvard Medical School, the Cleveland Clinic (where Dr. Mike is Chief Wellness Officer) and universities in Hawaii and Japan revealed that Omega-7 fatty acids found in purified palmitoleic acid have amazing powers too!
Our take: Take 200 milligrams of purified omega-7 in capsule form along with 900 milligrams of DHA daily.
