I started the Zone diet a couple weeks ago, not for the aim of losing weight, but for all the other amazing health benefits that Dr. Sears outlines in his books. And so far, I love it!! My energy level has doubled and I no longer have those afternoon coma sessions...hallelujah!
My first question relating to anti-aging is, I have heard that some people have experienced a return of hair color (i.e., gray hair turning dark again) with oral intake of fish oil. Has anyone out there had a similar experience that they want to share? Relatedly, I have heard claims that fish oil shampoos can help return color to hair as well as taking supplements orally. Does anyone know, could there be any science behind this claim or is it just another internet scam to avoid?[/quote:5366f32adf]
[color=darkblue:5366f32adf]I don't know about that but I love to see my gray gone!! Scott, what's you opinion?[/color:5366f32adf]
[quote:5366f32adf="zoharah_star"]Here is my other question: I just read on another posting that Dr. Sears is no longer affiliated with the ZonePerfect website. Unfortunately, I already placed an order through the site for Fish Oil capsules, and supposedly they are "molecularly distilled" as strongly suggested by Dr. Sears. Can anyone tell me if this product is up to par, or if I should go out of my way to return the product and re-order from Dr. Sears' "Zone Labs" site? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.[/quote:5366f32adf]
[color=darkblue:5366f32adf]What's recommended is that any fish oil manufacturer voluntarily submits samples of their batches to an IFOS certified lab for testing. (IFOS = International Fish Oil Standards program). If for some commercial interest they are not listed on the website, the manufacturer should be able to provide a certificate of testing, or something like that.[/color:5366f32adf]
