Are You Getting the Right Amount of “SMART FATS” in Your Diet?

Smart Blend is a Cutting Edge Blend of Omega-3, CLA & GLA Giving Your Body the Fatty Acid Complex it Needs.



What Will Smart Blend Do For Me?

Enhances Body Fat Reduction
Supports Cardiovascular & Immune Health
Promotes Normal Cholesterol Metabolism
Advanced Omega-3, CLA & GLA Fatty Acid Complex

Smart Blend…An Advanced Complex Enhancing Your Quality of Life
Smart Blend is a cutting edge, proprietary blend of “SMART FATS” that contain the optimal ratios of essential fatty acids, which often become depleted in many athletes, health enthusiasts, as well as the average person. Because your body does not manufacture essential fatty acids on its own, Smart Blend provides the “necessary for life” fatty acids that have been shown to be deficient in the regular “Standard American Diet (SAD)”.

Essential Fatty Acids That The Body Requires
One of the great deficiencies SAD is the lack of SMART FATS, more importantly, long-chain Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs). To avoid the “bad fats” (saturated fats) that we fear and hear so much about, many people have turned to low fat diets. These diets decrease “total” fat intake, which not only decreases bad fats but good fats as well. The result is a short fall in good fats needed for optimal cellular function as well as contributing to an increase in metabolic disorders and chronic debilitating diseases.

As structural components of membranes, EFAs help form a barrier that keeps foreign molecules, viruses, yeasts fungi and bacteria outside of cells. It also maintains the cell’s proteins, enzymes, genetic material and organelles inside of the cells.

EFA’s key benefits include:

Regulate the vital use of oxygen, electron transport, energy production and fat metabolism
Balance and regulate hormone production and activity
Vital for the production of joint lubrication matrix
Play a role as precursors of prostaglandins (PGs), which are hormone-like substances that modulate blood pressure, promotes cardiovascular and immune health as well as mitigate inflammatory responses
Promotes optimal cholesterol metabolism


Optimum Quality and Purity
In 1995, Greanpeace analyzed various fishing grounds, fish, and fish oils for heavy metals, pesticides and other contaminants. Many DHA based products do not meet these standards. The best DHA comes from the coast of Norway, which is due to the “clean” fertile fishing grounds of the North Atlantic. The coasts of third world countries, which use fertilizers and insecticides, are currently banned for use in the USA. In turn, these fish and their subsequent fish oils are contaminated with heavy metals and pesticide residues.


DHA (DocosaHexanoic Acid)
Recent research has shown that DHA is an essential nutrient for optimum brain function, concentration and focus. Investigators at Purdue University reported that subjects with noted behavioral/focus concerns showed significantly lower blood levels of DHA in comparison to subjects without such concerns. Furthermore, British study with adult dyslexics indicated a significant improvement in reading ability and retention when subjects were supplemented with DHA. In addition to its benefits on memory and focus, DHA has also been clinically reported to balance cholesterol levels, support normal blood flow, heart rate, gastrointestinal health as well as modulate vital prostaglandins to normalize inflammatory response.

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a naturally occurring nutrient found in milk, cheese, and beef. Research has indicated that CLA exerts a partitioning effect on protein and most importantly, fat metabolism. CLA is needed to maintain optimal function of the membranes of all cells. Healthy cell membranes allow fat, protein and carbohydrate to flow into active cells such as muscle, connective tissue and organ cells, instead of being stored as passive fat cells. These healthy cell membranes allow for maximum absorption and metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. CLA’s metabolic activity has been clinically shown to promote increases in lean muscle mass as well as reducing body fat. Uniquely enough, CLA also enhances immune health and antioxidant status, supports normal cholesterol levels and has proven to elicit anticancer properties.

GLA (Gamma-Linoleic Acid)
GLA (Gamma-Linoleic Acid) is a necessary step in the production of “good” prostaglandins. Good prostaglandins support cardiovascular, joint and immune health, elicits powerful antioxidant activity as well as promotes healthy blood glucose and blood pressure levels.

Regular supplementation with Smart Blend ensures a complete mixture of essential fatty acids such as omega-3, omega-6 (EPA, DHA, CLA and GLA).

Smart Blend provides vital fatty acids that

Reduce Body Fat & Support Muscle Recovery
Support Immune & Cardiovascular Health
Optimize Cell Membrane Fluidity & Cellular Communications
Promotes Healthy Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Levels

Where Can I Buy Smart Blend?
Bodybuilding.com CyberStore! ( http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/mrm/smart.html)

How Much Will It Cost?
It costs $30 at the CyberStore or 25cents per serving.

How Many Servings In A Bottle?
120!

How Many Servings Should I Take In A Day?
You should at least consume 3 servings in one day. Take 2 capsules 3 times per day. For optimal dosing take 4 capsules 3 times per day.

Is Smart Blend Safe?
Yes! I would recommend it to everyone!

Should I Cycle Smart Blend?
No. It is a staple product. You should use it year round cutting or bulking.

I Herd Fats Are Bad For You?
Some fats such as hydrogenated oils are not good for you, however the fats found in Smart Blend have been proven to:

Lower Cholesterol
Aid With Joints
Promote Healthy Blood Pressure
Burn Fat
Help With Recovery

What’s Different Then My Fish Oil Product?
Smart Blend contains high quality fish oil plus CLA and GLA. Smart Blend has very high EPA (260mg) and DHA(220mg) levels where as most fish oil contains 180mg of EPA and 120mg of DHA. Plus with Smart Blend you get 250mg of CLA and 80mg of GLA per serving. Smart Blend fulfills your entire EFA supplemental needs

What About Heavy Metals?
Due to pollutants found in some of our oceans fish can become contaminated and therefore their fish oil becomes contaminated too. This is a concern for fish oil supplementation. At MRM we only choose the HIGHEST QUALITY fish oil from the Norwegian cost line. This ensures that we have no problems with pollutants.

Can This Help Me Study?
Yes. DHA has been proven to aid with concentration. Therefore Smart Blend can help you study. Taking Smart Blend however WILL NOT replace hard work.

I Am Already Taking A CLA Product; Can I Take Smart Blend Too?
Yes, but it’s not needed.

Is Smart Blend The Answer To All Of My Supplemental EFA Needs?
Yes!

I've read several posts here or on other boards about CLA competing for absorbtion with the other EFAs with the recommendation that they be taken at separate times to avoid this, as well as the claim that EFA blends with CLA (such as this product) are not an optimal solution because of this fact. Could you please enlighten me on the validity of these claims as I know sometimes these things can be taken out of context or extrapolated from study summaries wrongly.

Is each softgel 1000mg? Also, are there any studies that show the benefits of GLA? I don't know too much about it other than it is suppose to help the skin.

30 dollars for 120 servings....

Or 7 dollars for 100 servings of Omega 3.


Don't get me wrong. Awesome product. I'm just curious if this is really worth the extra money.

thats like comparing a 43 gram serving of sizeon to an 8 gram serving of xceed. you should know better than to judge by number of servings and to look at the actual composition per serving instead. both have their place, but you cannot discount the other simply by servings per bottle. you pay the price for the extras and convenience and need to decide for yourself how much optimal health and performance is worth to you.

*not bashing xceed or sizeon in any way, just used them for the example*
