Reflex Omega 3
Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acid from Reflex Nutrition
This is an insight as to why Omega 3 fatty acids are so very important to your
fitness success, overall health and fat loss efforts.
First of all there are a number of forms of fat that are found in the human
body. Most people will have heard of cholesterol, often associated with heart
disease and unhealthy diets. The fats that we are interested in are triglycerides.
These are absolutely vital. They are used by the body to make cell membranes
and many other important structures within cellular tissue.
Fatty acids are either saturated or unsaturated. Unsaturated fatty acids are
referred to as polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fats. 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
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.
Sometimes it is hard to fathom the lack of importance many people associate
with Omega 3's, armed with just this small amount of information you should
see the vital importance of including Omega 3's in your diet.
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 PCBs
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.

free fish oil that provides 45% Omega 3 fatty acids.
