Steve Lankford talks to Brenda Watson about omega-3 oils and digestive health.

Brenda Watson is one of the pioneers in today’s nutritional marketplace. She has a singular focus on digestive care. Brenda is well known for her innovative products and for her educational efforts, which are legendary. Brenda has written or co-authored some of the most important books on digestive care, and if you have a digestive issue, I highly recommend her books which will guide you in dealing with digestive problems. You may have seen Brenda on one of her PBS specials and she has appeared many times in popular press. Her information and teaching style are easily understood and yet highly profound in the importance of her message.

This interview is Part 2 of our 4 part series on Brenda’s H.O.P.E. program. High fiber, Omega-3 oils, Probiotics, and Enzymes. Her message is straight forward. One of the most important things a person can do when they have digestive issues is evaluate how to incorporate these 4 elements. The four parts of the H.O.P.E. program are critical for digestive health. They are also foundational to maintain good digestive health. And good digestive health is necessary for whole body health. The food you eat is your only source of the nutritional factors that build health. To receive value from those foods, you must have a digestive system that functions normally. You are not only what you eat, but also what you absorb and utilize.

Omega-3 oils are essential to healthy digestion and help nourish the cells in the intestinal tract as well as provide the lubrication necessary for regular, healthy bowel elimination. They have also been shown to significantly improve overall health by supporting the nervous system, brain, heart and other organs.
