Omega 3s are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are found mainly in fish oil. This is why they are often nicknamed "fish fatty acids". The best known are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Few athletes who take supplements also think of Omega 3. However, these fatty acids should be at the top of the list of supplements. Indeed, Omega 3 should be the basic supplement for all athletes. Omega 3 fatty acids contribute to good health, they promote sports results and are an effective weapon in the fight against unwanted pounds.
1) The beneficial effects of Omega 3
- The anti-aging effect
- A good cholesterol and a healthy heart
- An anti-inflammatory effect
2) Omega 3 and sports results
Omega 3 fatty acids have an anti-catabolic effect: a strength sportsman who takes a good dose of Omega 3 fatty acids will increase the restorative capacity of his muscles.
A diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids makes the muscles more sensitive to insulin thus decreasing protein breakdown.
In addition, proteins are more effective in muscle growth than when combined with Omega 3 fatty acids. If you take a few Omega 3 capsules a day, the effect of muscle growth obtained by your protein shake will be even more important.
3) Omega 3 and weight loss
Several studies on Omega 3 have already demonstrated the usefulness of these fatty acids in the fight against unwanted pounds. This is the conclusion of a team of Icelandic, Spanish and Irish researchers published in the International Journal of Obesity. Fish oil (Omega 3) therefore increases the fat burning. And if in addition, you take Omega 3 fatty acids during training, you amplify the effect of this training on fat loss and non-greasy muscle mass.
