Omega 3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated and are found in abundance in fish oils. They have profound health benefits and are quite often one of the last supplements people consider taking. In reality Omega 3's should be at the top of your list. Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce serum levels of cholesterol (important for cardiovascular health). They may also reduce the risk of one type of stroke. These benefits are often seen in people who consume a diet high in fish oils. Eskimos, for example, have a very low rate of heart disease. Athletes can benefit more so from the consumption of Omega 3's - it appears as if aerobic exercise improves Omega 3's ability to benefit cholesterol levels even further. It's also been found that Omega 3's can both enhance fat burning and actually decrease fat storage.
We're also seeing evidence to support Omega 3's increasing performance and strength levels in athletes. Studies are also showing the possibility of Omega 3's decreasing catabolism (muscle breakdown) and increase growth hormone levels. By decreasing inflammation, Omega 3's can also reduce the pain of rheumatoid arthritis, although it appears to be most useful in the early stages of the disease and it is not clear if it affects the progression of the disease itself. Omega 3's may also reduce the pain associated with menstrual cramps.
This is an exceptional source of ‘good’ fats (essentially fatty acids) not easily obtained from a natural diet and as opposed to a diet of saturated fats, a diet rich in Omega 3 can lead to lower heart disease. Each Reflex Omega 3 capsule contains 1000mg of pure, concentrated, contaminant free fish oil that provides 45% Omega 3 fatty acids.
What makes Reflex Nutrition's Omega3 different from the competition? - Because omega 3 fatty acids are obtained from natural sources, levels in supplements can vary, depending on the source and method of processing. Contamination is a major issue; fish can accumulate toxins such as mercury, dioxins, and PCB's that are harmful to your health. Importantly, Reflex Nutrition have procedures in place to guarantee that every single batch of Reflex Omega 3 fatty acids are screened for all contaminants, giving you essential peace of mind and satisfaction.
