Achieving optimum sports performance with Omega-3s

Omega-3 fatty acids are nutrients essential for the proper and optimal functioning of the human body. They are so important because they help keep your heart, brain and eye health in top shape, which helps keep your sports performance high!

Types of omega-3s

ALA (alpha-linoleic acid)is the most common omega-3 fatty acid and can be found in plant foods, such as green leafy vegetables and flax, hemp and chia seeds. Once ingested, the liver converts the ALA taken from the food into two other forms of omega-3s, EPA (eicosapentaeonic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are the most important omega-3s in your diet! But this conversion process is highly inefficient.

What can you do to increase your intake of omega-3s and support your active lifestyle?

Because EPA and DHA are building components of every single cell, it is essential to increase their intake as directly as possible. For optimal quantities of EPA and DHA, you should consume animal-based foods, such as oily fish, and aim your intake at 250 mg/day. 

For instance, your meal should consist of 200 g of smoked salmon twice a week. Alternatively, you can also get this from 1 g of fish oil per day. However, the most convenient way of ensuring sufficient omega-3 intake is by taking a high-quality supplement, like POWER Omega-3.

Why are omega-3s so important for an active lifestyle? 

Introducing omega-3s into your diet benefits your cardiovascular system, which keeps your heart pumping and blood flowing efficiently, so you can dominate your strength training session. 

How can omega-3s help you achieve better performance? 

Younger and older runners, swimmers, hikers, powerlifters, soccer players and bikers alike can all benefit from a daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids. POWER Omega-3 is a high-dose fish oil containing both EPA and DHA omega-3s, which support the optimal functioning of your vision, your heart and your nervous system.
