When it comes to fat, there’s one type you don’t want to cut back on: omega-3 fatty acids. Two crucial ones, EPA and DHA, are primarily found in certain fish.

Choosing good quality Omega 3 is essential, Nordic Oil and Capsules are taken from fish in Norway, a place known for the quality of the fish. Nordic Oil High Grade Omega 3 made my skin feel more radiant, fresh and hydrated.
