For all of our female readers out there, what if there was a supplement that could help you recover more quickly from your workouts, provide you with more stamina during exercise, potentially reduce your risk of breast cancer and heart disease, and possibly relieve your symptoms of PMS…just to name a few.
The Science is in the Ingredients
Athlete’s Best Premium Omega-3 Plus contains only the highest quality ingredients available. For instance, we use NKO® Krill Oil in our formula which is the only clinically proven omega-3 shown to lower total body inflammation (CRP) and relieve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). No other “fish oil” can say that! Health Canada (The United States FDA equivalent of Canada) has allowed the following health claims for NKO® Neptune Krill Oil:
- Source of omega-3 fatty acids for the maintenance of good health
- Source of EPA and DHA for the maintenance of good health
- Helps to reduce pain associated with osteoarthritis
- Helps to reduce C-reactive protein levels, a clinical marker of inflammation
- Helps to maintain cardiovascular health
- In conjunction with conventional statin therapy, helps to increase the levels of HDL cholesterol
- In conjunction with conventional statin therapy, helps to reduce the levels of LDL cholesterol
- In conjunction with conventional statin therapy, helps to reduce serum triglycerides
- Helps to reduce C-reactive protein levels, a clinical marker of inflammation
- Helps to relieve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
There are many other ‘fish oil’ supplements and even krill oil supplements on the market, but none of them can use the claims that Neptune Krill Oil can. There is a significant difference in the quality of other oils on the market, and our research clearly concluded that NKO was by far the best quality source of omega-3s. When designing the formula for Athlete’s Best Premium Omega-3 Plus, we wanted to contain only the best possible ingredients for maximum absorption and effectiveness.
In a double-blind clinical test, it was found that NKO Krill Oil can provide relief for breast tenderness and joint pain, as well as management for the emotional symptoms associated with PMS such as irritability, depression and stress; without pain-relieving drugs.
NKO® reduced physical symptoms of PMS:
- Bloating (21%)
- Weight Gain (29%)
- Abdominal Pain (34%)
- Joint Pain (64%)
- Swelling (37%)
- Breast Tenderness (42%)
NKO® reduced emotional symptoms of PMS:
- Stress (38%)
- Depression (39%)
- Irritability (47%)
- Overwhelmness (42%)
Omega-3s and Breast Cancer Prevention?
Studies have also shown that omega-3s have a crucial role in cancer prevention. One important role is that it reduces cellular inflammation – a pre-cursor to cancer. The International Journal of Cancer in March 2002 reported in a study with 250 women with breast cancer, that women who are cancer-free have much higher omega-3 fatty acid levels in their breast tissue. In 2010 the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle followed 35,000 women over a number of years and showed that those who supplemented regularly with omega-3s had a third less breast cancers.
Not only can a key ingredient in our formula reduce your symptoms of PMS, and our high quality omega-3s potentially reduce your risk for breast cancer, many testimonials have stated that the product has helped active women to shed unwanted weight.
Possibly Help with Weight Loss Goals
We didn’t design Athlete’s Best to be a weight-loss product, but its unique properties allow it to be used where the body needs it most. Omega-3s improve communication between the cell membranes. If you regularly eat sugary foods and too many processed carbohydrates, your body will have released so much insulin that it will begin to lose its sensitivity to insulin, which means that your cells won’t receive as strong a signal to sponge up excess sugar out of your blood. Omega-3‘s will make your metabolism more efficient by helping cells communicate better and therefore messages from insulin are stronger. The more energy you have, the more fat you will burn. The better your cells and hormones communicate, the better your system can get rid of fat. For example; if you have too much estrogen your body will store more fat.
We have over 670mg of highly absorbable DHA in every serving of our product! Not only that, but DHA in Omega-3’s show promise to breakdown fat and reduce fat storage and accumulation. With these powerful nutrients on your side, along with a proper diet and exercise, there is nothing to stop you from reaching your goal weight. Check out a few of these study headlines associated with higher DHA intake:
1. DHA Decreases Fat Accumulation in Fat Cells
2. DHA Regulates Abdominal Fat Genes
3. DHA Lowers Abdominal Fat
4. DHA Reduces Fat Storage and Promotes Fat Breakdown
5. DHA Inhibits Fat Cell Formation
6. High DHA Helps Slow Production of New Fat Cells
7. DHA Boosts Adiponectin in Overweight Insulin-Resistant Women
8. DHA Helps Weight Loss by Improving Triglyceride Reduction
9. DHA Promotes Healthier Fat Metabolism During Weight Loss
10. DHA Helps Overweight Adults Exercise Healthier
Astaxanthin in Athlete’s Best is a powerful antioxidant which can increase metabolism. Again, you need energy to get up and exercise. Astaxanthin is most prevalent in algae and phytoplankton. This microalgae is perhaps what helps salmon swim upstream. Astaxanthin has been shown to reduce damage of UVA light, sunburn, aging, skin cancer and improve skin elasticity and skin suppleness. There is strong evidence with improvement for eye-health, heart health and muscular strength and endurance. Also, a recent study shows it’s neuroprotective effects of astaxanthin, helping with Brain function; Alzheimer’s, Senility, Trauma to brain’ and age related Dementia. Astaxanthin is really an added bonus in this already great Omega-3 supplement.
Quicker Recovery from Exercise
Active women will also experience benefits associated with exercise. The powerful combination of ingredients within our formula helps reduce lactic acid build up in muscles, which causes the “burn” you feel when exercising. This is due to the proper amounts of astaxanthin and Neptune Krill Oil we have in our formula. With reduced build up, stamina and endurance is greatly enhanced providing you with more energy to complete your full workout. The antioxidant properties in the astaxanthin and NKO also reduce inflammation in the body, providing a faster recovery time after intense workouts. With reduced inflammation you will feel less joint and muscle pain after exercise.
Why is Athlete’s Best Different?
We are confident in our product as we spent 11 months researching all clinical data available prior to formulating our proprietary formula. We specifically designed our formula for optimal results. Research shows that in some cases “more is not necessarily better”. This was deemed to be the case in regards to krill oil and astaxanthin. We have a specialization in enhancing athletic performance naturally for nearly 15 years and have designed the formula with just the right amounts for optimal performance.
The ingredients in our Premium Omega-3s can possibly provide numerous benefits for women. With reduced symptoms of PMS, a lower risk for breast cancer, promotion of healthy weight-loss, increased stamina and quicker recovery time, there is nothing stopping you from becoming stronger and more powerful than you already are.
