What are the benefits for sportsmen?

Omega Benefits

Omega Benefits

There is much research emerging showing the benefits of fatty acids, including an interesting study undertaken in prisons in the United Kingdom showed a 35 per cent reduction of violent acts resulted when prisoners where simply given a nutritional supplement containing fatty acids.

Omega 3 & 6 is of interest to those who partake in sports because it optimises the functioning of the heart, the blood circulation and use of fats for the muscles. Research concludes that Omega 3 & 6 is favourable to optimise training and performance. There is also some evidence that intensive aerobic training augments the need for Omega 3.
