We’d like to highlight an article that was recently published in Men’s Fitness Magazine, titled “10 Reasons Every Lifter, Runner, and Athlete Needs Omega-3s”. If you’ve been following us for some time now, you’ll know that our flagship product is our Premium Omega-3 Plus supplement. Since we released it over 3 years ago, it continues to be the highest quality and most effective omega-3 supplement on the market today. As we’ve mentioned in the past, we spent 11 months perfecting our formula for maximum benefits and sourced ingredients that were not only of the highest quality, but we made sure the entire manufacturing processes were the purest in the industry.
Some highlights from the Men’s Fitness Magazine article include:
How Omega-3 Supplements Can Boost Your Athletic Performance
1. They’ll Speed Your Exercise Recovery
After working out, your muscles are left riddled with microscopic tears; tears that, when healed, will make you stronger, bigger, and faster. Omega 3s are powerful anti-inflammatory compounds that help make that recovery process happen. Premium Omega-3 Plus also contains natural astaxanthin, which also has powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. These natural anti-inflammatories make DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) a thing of the past after a tough workout, with both reduced levels of inflammation and perceived pain.
2. They’ll Make Your Stronger
Besides decreasing muscle breakdown, omega-3s increase protein synthesis – the process in which your muscles transform the protein you eat, into protein in your muscles.
3. They’ll Boost Your Reaction Time
The human brain is nearly 60% fat. Omega 3s have been shown to improve cognitive functioning, and play a critical role in visual processing and signaling.
4. They’ll Reduce Your Risk of Overuse Injuries
Apart from speeding up exercise recovery, omega 3s fend off workout-ending injuries by preventing tissue degradation, easing inflammation, boosting blood and oxygen flow to muscles, increasing range of motion, and relieving joint soreness.
5. They’ll Make Your Muscles Work Better
By helping signals get from one cell to another more efficiently, omega 3s lead to greater increases in neuromuscular function, and far less muscle fatigue.
6. They’ll Burn Excess Fat
Omega 3 supplementation significantly decreases adults fat mass in as little as six weeks. Having adequate levels of omega-3s allows the body to better burn fat for energy while exercising.
7. They’ll Fight Exercise Induced Asthma
Omega-3s improve lung function and reduce airway inflammation.
8. They’ll Make Your Workouts Feel Easier
Part of omega-3s heart health benefit is that they decrease heart rate and the amount of oxygen your body burns through every minute. During competition this is huge. It means your body will need less oxygen than your competitor and require far less energy to complete the same task.
