HOT TIP For You Late Nite Eaters!
For those of us who cannot resist the urge to eat late at night, a certain supplement can help! Yes! Studies show that you can cancel out any negative effect by taking Omega 3 fatty acids during the day. These block the production of inflammatory prostaglandins for about 8-12 hours. They work so quickly, you can even take them just before a midnight snack and still combat the pro-inflammatory agents.
