omega fish

2

Stormy is finally big enough to eat a whole Attisons Betta Pro pellet!! It’s funny that she likes them so much because the first ingredient is brine shrimp and I tried to give her a little bit of frozen brine shrimp the other day which she spit out. Anyways, these are the two types of pellets I use in her diet but since she was so small (malnourished but also young) I only fed her the omega one ones along with the occasional blood worm.

Magdalena Frackowiak’s Skin Rules
  • Firstly, don’t touch your skin, because your hands have a lot of bacteria. I also believe in always using alcohol gel on your hands, because everywhere we’re touching things.
  • When I say goodbye to someone I don’t kiss, because this also has a lot of bacteria [laughs]. Don’t kiss just anyone, that’s my advice.
  • Never try to push a pimple. If you have one, the best thing you can do is to take a pure alcohol on a Q-tip, and delicately touch it.
  • I’ll often make myself a natural mask with honey and avocado, or I’ll make a mask with oats and milk - oats are very good as a scrub to cleanse the skin. I also like pure oils - like avocado oil. I’ll warm it in my hands and rub it in.
  • When I wake up, I wash my face only with water, and I take a small towel and dab it gently.
  • In terms of products, I use Doctor Alkaitis organic moisturiser - with no perfume, no chemicals; just natural products inside. I try wherever possible to keep my skin free from chemicals day-to-day. I have an amazing herbal toner from Dr Alkaitis, but very little else.
  • I also like to make a hot bath for my skin: combine some oils and herbs and let the pores open, and then use a towel afterwards to gently dab the skin.
  • Having said that, I see Dr Colbert in New York and he has an amazing three-part treatment: the first level is basically a machine that takes away all the dirt and cleans your skin; then there’s a delicate laser that closes your pores; then the third level is an acid used like a peel. And that’s the only treatment I will do.
  • When I travel, I make sure I have a good natural moisturiser to rehydrate my skin, and once I’m on the flight I’ll put on a mask and just sleep with it on.
  • Make-up is also very important because it can clog your skin, and you don’t want your skin to be clogged. There is an Armani foundation that I use, it’s already very thin, but I’ll mix it with a little moisturiser before I apply.
  • Then vitamins, because vitamins nourish your skin from the inside out. Vitamin E, A, all the omegas, and fish oil are all very important - and also I like to eat chicken soup because it contains collagen. I eat a lot of avocado, a lot of fish, beef - because your skin is built from these oils. You need to care for the skin from inside. I can have pasta, trust me - I live in Italy. I’m not torturing myself.
  • Another thing I do, and this comes from my mother, is I sleep like this [mimes totally still, on her back, corpse pose]. You don’t want to wrinkle.
  • The other things are quite obvious. I drink a lot of water, I like hot water and lemon to clear the skin. Don’t smoke, and I don’t drink alcohol at all. I’m 30 and I have not one wrinkle, so this is why. It’s all about being very delicate with your skin and treating your skin like it’s your best friend. I say to all the young models, who are there backstage with a cigarette: “Don’t smoke!” It kills, you know, it really kills. You see that girl in 10 years and she won’t still be working, you’re like: “Wow, she changed so much,” because she destroyed herself. Don’t party too much, don’t take drugs: you get the face you deserve.
  • I like to stretch, I think it’s very important for your body, so I do yoga and pilates, but I don’t like to go to the gym and work out. I don’t have that body type. Some girls, like Izabel Goulart, have that body and look great that way, but I treat it the same way as my skin; you have to be very delicate with your body. I don’t like to have muscles, but I also don’t like to be too skinny. Sometimes I notice I got too skinny, and even my skin will suffer - maybe if I’ve been working too much - but it’s about balance.
  • I’m really proud to say I turned 30, and I’m getting so many compliments now. I’m a woman and I took care of myself.

Constantly losing focus while you study be frustrating. We will go through some of the top study tips that can allow you to focus and study effectively.

Remind yourself why
One of the key things that help us maintain focus no matter what, is by getting really interested in whatever we are doing. So find a way to make your topic interesting, relatable and practical in your life.

Remind yourself that you want to study to expand your worldly knowledge, to graduate, get into a field that you can flourish in, and provide some value to the world with your awesomeness. Also try thinking in metaphors and whatifs. It’s your mind, no one else has access to it, so think of wondrous things to make yourself want to devote the next few hours of your life to the task at hand.

Before studying

  1. Plan out what you want to accomplish and give yourself a time limit. For example, I will read 10 pages from my psych textbook in 30 minutes, or I will spend 1 hour researching the key words for my report.
  2. Get enough sleep. Ideally around 7-9 hours. If you sleep earlier, you may need less sleep, but please never do less than 6. Constant sleep deprivation is deteriorating for the brain and body.
  3. Eat foods that help you focus. Which include blueberries, green tea, avocados, spinach, kale, salmon, nuts and seeds. I often have a spinach, banana & kale smoothie with matcha green tea powder, but you can combine some of the ingredients in a quick sandwich if you like.
  4. Your brain mainly works on sugar, but you need to temper it with a protein or something with low GI, to reduce any blood-sugar problems which can lead to sudden tiredness. A quick way to find a a balance is to opt for a fruit or healthy smoothie.
  5. Be aware that if you study right after having a heavy meal the blood circulating around your brain reduces and goes to help with digestion, so you may feel less alert. Smaller meals can help.
  6. Take supplements that help you focus: fish oil, omega 3, Ginko Biloba, vitamin B12, Co-Enzyme Q10, and iron.
  7. Identify whatever distracts you and find a way to minimise it. So perhaps you can go to a non-distracting environment, if that is an issue. I prefer libraries or coffeeshops.
  8. Surround yourself with motivated people. If you can befriend the top few students in your class, or at least be on nicer terms with them, hopefully their studiousness will rub off on you.
  9. Have all the stationary and materials you need at hand.
  10. Set up a reward system, but avoid food as a reward as it can lead to an unhealthy relationship with food. Instead try a relaxing activity, or hobby. Pretty much any incentive you can think of that will help you cross the finish line.

While studying

  1. Prime - Spend 2 minutes skimming or figuring out what you will be going through.
  2. Drinking game - Keep a bottle of water or two next to you. Drink a cup or a half cup worth every time you get distracted for more than 5 seconds.
  3. Put distractions in their place - Write down any distracting thoughts in a small notebook. But remember it’s not supposed to act as your pretty bullet journal, but you can make another spread for if it you like. I made a small notebook the other day to write down quick thoughts that I would otherwise dwell on. It helps me direct my thoughts appropriately to what I’m studying, and still have those important ideas to refer to later.
  4. Motivate yourself - Write out exactly why you want to be a [insert awesome career position] in detail with examples. Keep that page or post-it on hand and look at it when you feel yourself losing focus. It can give you a motivational boost and can inspire you to keep going. Sometimes I like to visualise specific scenarios of how I could help people once my finish my studies.
  5. Take strategic breaks - Remove yourself from your study space and think of something else for a few minutes. You can get a snack, walk around, do a quick workout, look outside, and notice nature. Practice being present in the moment. Listen to of the world around you and get out of your head.
  6. If you feel you can not sustain your concentration on a task for too long, you may switch between two different yet equally important tasks. But try to do a big task for at least 20 minutes, you never know, by then you might like it. Some studies show, it takes 20 minutes to really get into concentrating on something.
  7. Reduce as many distractions as you can, including turning off notifications and wifi, putting you phone on do not disturb or airplane mode, and try blocking apps.
  8. Track how you use your time. I like the apps ‘Now and Then’ and ‘Moment’ for iOS. So you can see how much you have accomplished or slacked off.
  9. Write draft first. Edit and prettify later.
  10. If you’re in the final stage, focus on the fact that you have made it this far and that you’re almost done.
  11. Try to make it fun somehow, perhaps with strategies you used when you were a kid.
  12. Use as many senses as you can.
  13. Record your voice and say whatever you are reading or writing in different accents.
  14. Draw quick doodles next to whoever you are doing to help you remember it better.
  15. As long it’s not your first draft, feel free to use colourful pens, highlights and tape to keep you engaged.

After studying

  1. Revise whatever you have accomplished just before your break, by quickly skimming through your most recent notes or readings.
  2. Consequent revision schedule. The best way to remember what you have worked on is to revise it in specific intervals, after you have studying it. So after five minutes, in that evening before bed, the next day, at the end of the week and then in three weeks.
  3. Reward yourself, as long as you feel like you ended up accomplishing something you couldn’t before.

You can try out each step for two days each to see which strategies work best for you.

I hope these tips can help you, and feel free message me if you would like more details for one of the points :)

I know that you study nutrition so I want to ask you about something I'm concerned about. Omega 3 vegan sources come from walnuts, flaxseed, chia seeds and such. This comes in the form if ALA which is converted by the body to DHA and EPA. My question is how much of it is actually converted and is the amount converted enough to keep us from being deficient? Do i have to take algea oil supplements to satisfy DHA and EPA or do i not worry about it?

The amount of ALA that your body converts to DHA and EPA is completely dependent on your physical needs. Your body will only convert what it requires, and yes, you will very easily get enough without supplementation 😊

While we are on this topic…

The idea that we need omega 3 from fish, or that ALA is not efficiently converted to DHA & EPA is just fear mongering by corporations who would like to sell more of their product. Omega 3 actually comes from plants in the first place… the fish eat this and the fish’s body converts the ALA to DHA & EPA, and it accumulates in its tissues. Why bother getting this EFA second-hand through a dead animal when our body is more than capable of making the conversion itself? Not only that, but most of the fish for sale today is farmed and fed wheat, corn and soy much like land farm animals, and so there is next to no omega 3 in its flesh anyway.

Also, we do not need as much omega 3 as we are led to believe. It is essential (we must eat it, we cannot produce it ourselves), but that doesn’t mean we need to go overboard. What’s important is that we balance out our omega 3 to 6 ratio. We get an insane amount of omega 6 fats from animal products and vegetable oils, in turn creating an imbalance and perceived “need” to consume more omega 3, when really if you just lower your omega 6 consumption (cut out animal products and oils - you’ll still get some from whole plant foods high in fat), you’ll be much healthier.

Riot… What are you doing? Change, or at least FIX the joke for Fizz on the Omega skin and Super Galaxy. On the Omega, the fish goes through the mask. In Super Galaxy, a hellish mouth appears out of the chin of Fizz’s suit to eat the fish. How do you not notice that for a year almost?

What kind of vitamins do you take? (Love your blog 💕🤗)

Aw, thank you!<3 

Multivitamin - general health

Omega 3 (fish oil) - hair/nails/skin

D3 vitamin - because of a disease I have, not sure what it does, but my doctor gave it to me. 

Calcium - bones/teeth 

Garlic - Immune system

3 Day - Detox!

Alright guys i’m gonna give you a daily recipe for one of my favorite short detox. You’re gonna do this for 3 days.

This Detox is gonna put nutrients back in you, remove a lot of bad bacteria and toxins in your body and add antioxidants. It will clean out your kidneys, and promote energy! Your skin, hair!

It tastes soooooo good too. 

I will add you should probably go out and get yourself a good probiotic, Omega - 3 Fish Oil and a multivitamin as this will put more micronutrients back into your body and promote good bacteria you’ll digest easier, turn off genes that contribute to belly fat, and absorb nutrients much better and fill in nutritional gaps. Especially if you normally don’t eat right!

You will notice a difference especially if you’ve never been on a detox before. Depending on how you’re used to eating, the results can be a couple of pounds gone, increased energy, you might feel nauseous, but it’s for a good cause.

[TRANS] Rankingbox - “Moisturizer is important for men too! FTISLAND’s Choi Jonghoon, the best 3 essential items to accompany you when you’re on a long distance travel.”

FTISLAND has just released a new album, called “UNITED SHADOWS”. Because they are people who travel overseas really often for their activities, this time, we asked Choi Jonghoon to teach us what are the best 3 items to accompany you when you’re on a long distance travel!

As our body is our asset, health care is a must, the items lineup must consist of skin management products as well. 

1. Mask pack

It is not something that you use while traveling but it is the most essential thing to bring when you travel. It is dry on the airplane. Usually, I apply it three times a week. Even for men, moisturizing is one of the most important things. It is necessary to invest on your skin. For actors in Korea, even if theyre men, a lot of them apply mask pack every day. For Japanese people, when you travel to Korea, you can buy lots of mask packs to bring home as souvenirs. Mask packs in Korea are cheap and there are many kinds of them, it is very recommended.

Fish food Nutrition break down

Just a rough guide on different brands and their standard tropical, goldfish and betta fish foods. I will also focus on pellets if available as they’re usually more viable and nutritious for your fish and cause less problems. that will allow you to compare and decide what one is best for you and your animals. I won’t be reviewing them directly as I’ve only used a handful of brands personally, but I will break down the nutrition regardless. Bolded are the really good ingredients not including vitamins

As a general rule you want to look at whole/natural protein over general meal as the first few ingredients, fewer grain based fillers and a balanced nutrition ratio for your fish.

Top 10 food to study

Certain food favour the perfomance of the brain when we do cognitive activities like studying. Here there are ten of these products that help students to improve their performance.But do not expect miracles without appropriate study hours you won’t improve.


  1. Blueberries. They are rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, which help to activate protective enzymes in the brain and improve memory in the long term.
  2. Walnuts. Their high phosphorus content, make them the most effective nut for activities such as study or any related to intellectual performance. Similarly, almonds improve memory too.
  3. Coffee and tea. Caffeinated coffee gives you a dose of early morning energy, and in small doses, it can help you concentrate and tea, contains caffeine too and  L-theanine, indicated to improve memory and concentration.
  4. Black chocolate. The health benefits of chocolate come from flavonoids, a type of phytochemical found in the cacao bean. Dark chocolate contains a higher percentage of cocoa than white or milk chocolate. And the more cocoa a chocolate product contains, the richer its health-promoting content.
  5. Bananas. They are high in potassium and vitamin C and they contains Vitamin B6 which helps in the natural production of neurotransmitters associated with concentration, such as serotonin and dopamine.
  6. Oats. This cereal, known to be beneficial for the skin, is also good for the nervous system by its high content of thiamine or vitamin B1. In addition, it is rich in protein and healthy fats. It is advisable to consume in times of stress and is beneficial for short-term memory.
  7. Carrots. Like oats, its intake also implies benefits for the skin and is indicated to improve memory. Long-term consumption can increase our retention capacity thanks to the antioxidant beta-carotene.
  8. Salmon. Many specialists recommend it because it is high in omega 3. This fish and tuna improve concentration, memory and learning.
  9. Dark green vegetables. Spinach, asparagus, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts all provide folate, which appears crucial to brain function.
  10. Hemp seed.  It provides brain-powering protein, omega-3s and -6s, and a variety of antioxidants and other nutrients which improve your memory.
