It’s not only what you eat, but when you eat it.

Whenever I consider stopping my krill (fish) oil supplement (omega 3), or at least reducing the days I take it I run across yet another article that screams “Don’t!”

Depending on what time of the day you take your fish oil supplement it can effectively be used to counteract poor eating habits.

Studies show fish oil can block the production of inflammatory prostaglandins for 8 to 12 hours. “You can probably get away with eating salmon for lunch for example and then snacking on whatever, late at night, occasionally,” according to Dr. David Earnest a neuroscientist at Texas A&M Health Science Center. A fish oil supplement can even be taken just before a midnight candy bar and still help combat the snack’s pro-inflammatory saturated fatty acids.

Bon Appetit, you late night snackers.
