Miracle “Mystery Ingredient” In Common Household Product

Ok, I’ve got a really cool post for you today about something I think will definitely surprise you. I know I was when I first saw it.

The story actually came to me in an email but I’m changing the order of the content up a little¬†to see if you can guess¬†what it is.

I’m assuming most everyone knows what WD-40 is,¬†but for those of you who don’t, it’s basically a lubricating spray.

Most widely used for taking the squeak out of door hinge or loosing up a rusty bolt. As you’ll soon discover there are also a ton of¬†other¬†uses, some that¬†are really cool. It is used to grease locks so they don’t break, although sometimes is just easier to get a new one from All You Need Locksmith.

A little bit of history on WD-40 as it will be¬†important to my story…

WD-40 actually stands for¬†”water displacement #40″ which is a¬†product that¬†began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company.

Its name comes from the project that was to find a ‘water displacement’ compound. They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus “WD-40.” The Convair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts. Ken East, one of the original founders, says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you.

Read that last sentence again….about “there’s nothing in the product that would hurt you.”

That’s the last thing you’d think about a heavy duty cleaner, rust remover, lubricant and all-around wonder product.

So whatcha think the MAIN INGREDIENT is in WD-40?

Before I tell you, check out the all the reported uses of this product:

Ok, so what’s the main ingredient in this miracle product?

Would you believe FISH OIL? It’s true!

Now, that’s really cool. Maybe you haven’t made the connection yet…but there’s a really good reason why I bring all this up.

If you’ve followed my blog and materials for any time you’d know I’m a HUGE proponent of taking fish oil. The reason is simple…it’s beacuse of the Omega-3 fatty acids available in fish oil that everyone desparately needs in their diets today.

I’ve long said that this is the¬†MOST IMPORTANT¬†supplement a person can take. In fact, if you don’t take any other supplement at all you should take fish oil (or flax, or some other alternative to get your Omega-3′s).

Yes, it’s that important and that powerful. I call it the “wonder” supplement…and now you know it’s relation to the “wonder” WD-40 product.

Fish oil is like WD-40 for your body. It does all the same stuff….cleans, degreases, lubricates, but it’s working on the inside so you can’t see it.

Nothing works better to reduce inflammation, improve your heart health, lubricate the joints, and the list goes on.

Alright, that’s my story…hope you liked it.

If you’re not taking fish oil my recommendation and top pick is a brand called Barlean’s. There’s several varities (capsules, liquid, flavored liquid) and they’re all top of the line.

Product quality is everything when you’re buying fish oil. No, don’t buy your fish oil at Wal-Mart people! Most everything there is from China now anyways¬†and I can pretty much assure you even if the fish oil isn’t,¬†you don’t want it!

I sell Barlean’s products¬†at Shaping Concepts so if you’re from the Charleston area you can pick up some¬†at my studio. I’ve got¬†several varities you can try out to see what you like.

My favorite, and¬†the one I’m¬†using now, is the “lemon flavored fish oil swirl” (pictured above)
