I don’t think I have ever been excited as much as I was when Herbalifeline Max was announced to be released in Winter 2016.
I remember a training few years ago when one of our leading medical doctors mentioned that whilst our Core Nutrition (in the UK it is Formula 1 shake, Formula 2 Multivitamin & Mineral Tablets and Fibre & Herb Tablets), helps us reach optimum nutrition as part of a healthy eating regime, one other thing they would highly recommend adding to our daily nutrition intake are Omega 3 fish oils in form of a supplement.
To most people I speak to, thinking of fats as healthy seems to go against nearly every piece of nutrition advice they have ever had, but, there are certain types of fats that are considered healthy and that are actually essential to the body.
You see, our body requires a small amount of fats that help our bodies to function properly. Some fats are healthier than others and Omega 3 that are unsaturated (polyunsaturated) are considered to be better for us as they are proven to keep blood cholesterol within normal range, amongst other benefits. Herbalife Nutrition Philosophy recommend getting 30% of our daily calories from fat with special emphasis on optimising our daily intake of healthy fats. Getting more fats from saturated sources can lead to health problems including weight gain. Research shows that the intake of saturated fats in adults in the UK often exceed recommendations, with average intakes ranging from 9-26% of daily calories intake.

Healthy fats are found in fish, nuts, olive oil, avocados, to name a few main sources. Different types of fish have different amounts and to ensure we get those good-for-us Omega 3 oils, it is recommended we consume at least twice a week oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, as part of a healthy and balanced diet.
However, studies show that some Western diets are very low in long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids. The European Food Safety Authority recommends adults to consume 250 mg EPA and DHA per day, however, this can be difficult to reach, which is why a dietary supplement is recommended and can be helpful in helping us gain the benefits of EPA and DHA (omega 3 fatty acids) to keep our heart heathy and maintain normal brain function and vision, as well as maintenance of normal blood pressure and normal blood triglyceride levels.
Our Herbalifeline Omega 3 supplement contains 250 mg of EPA & DHA and I have been consuming it for years. However, company went a little bit further with the release of NEW Omega 3 Supplement – Herbalifeline Max:
It contains even higher levels of EPA and DHA per capsule, which delivers even greater heart, vision and brain benefits:
- One capsule contains 1063 mg of fish oils, out of which Omega 3 fatty acids: 375 mg EPA & 250 mg DHA
- Four capsules contains 4253 mg of fish oils, out of which Omega 3 fatty acids: 1500 mg EPA & 1000 mg DHA
- Five capsules contain 5315 mg of fish oils, out of which Omega 3 fatty acids: 1875 mg EPA & 1250 mg DHA
New formulation comes with key claims:
- Taking 1 tablet per day contributes to the normal function of the heart (daily intake of 250 mg of EPA & DHA), normal vision (daily intake of 250 mg of DHA) and normal brain function (daily intake of 250 mg of DHA)
- Taking 4 tablets per day contributes to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels (daily intake of 2g of EPA & DHA)
- Taking 5 tablets per day contributes towards the maintenance of normal blood pressure (daily intake of 3g of EPA & DHA)
New sustainably sourced fish oil is accredited by Friends of The Sea, supporting the same respectful values for the marine habitat
It is a new vegetarian gel capsule, suitable for vegetarians and also contains the exclusive combination of essential oils from thyme and peppermint to eliminate any aftertaste.
So, one capsule per day and so many benefits. Exciting or what? Please do not hesitate to connect should you wish to find out more.
Remember also that if your body composition goal is to lose fat, this does not mean that you should stop consuming fats. Healthy fats can actually help you in the process as one of our clinical trials proves, you just need to think about what type of fats you are consuming and the type of activities you are undertaking, to ensure you are fuelling your body with the right kind of fat.
