WHY YOU NEED OMEGA SUPPLEMENTS
FISH OILS CAN BE OBTAINED FROM EATING FISH OR BY TAKING SUPPLEMENTS. FISH THAT ARE ESPECIALLY RICH IN BENEFICIAL OILS (OMEGA-3) INCLUDE SALMON, TUNA, HERRING, MACKEREL, COD LIVER, WHALE BLUBBER AND SEAL BLUBBER. OFTEN OUR DIETS MAYBE DEFICIENT IN THESE BENEFICIAL OILS DUE THE LACK OF AVAILABILITY OR THE GLOBAL RISING COST OF FISH.
We at GNC have specially formulated a range of fish oils, so whether you're looking to maximize muscle building and fat loss or simply looking to take the best pathway towards optimal health, we have the right supplement for you to add to your daily diet.
Fish oil is a form of fatty acid derived from the tissues of oily fish. It contains omega-3 fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). They provide a wide range of health benefits by reducing the risk of inflammation and also reducing the risk of disease associated with inflammation. Some of these include cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and arthritis.
Current research on fish oils indicate:
- it plays a role in the prevention of heart disease, stroke, blood clots and high blood pressure
- it can be used in kidney related disorders and kidney complications secondary to diabetes
- it has earned the reputation as "brain food" because some people eat fish to help with depression, bipolar disorder, psychosis, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and mental impairment
- it has also shown to be useful for dry eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
There are also great benefits for those of us that train. Research indicates fish oils, particularly omega-3, DHA and EPA, increase the body ability to boost muscle protein synthesis. So this basically means, when you getting your post workout protein shake or carbohydrates, those supplementing with the right amounts of fish oils are going to have enhanced muscle protein synthesis which leads to greater gains in muscle size and growth. There is also the fat loss benefit. The omega 3 fats are known to help burn more fat as well as help to store less fat.
Research indicates that for optimal muscle growth a daily dose of 1500mg of DHA along with a similar dose of EPA is adequate.
Ultra Triple Strength Omega 1560 EPA & DHA is GNC's highest potency fish oil. Each capsule is enteric coated to reduce fishy burps and delivers 1560mg of fish oil. Every raw material used is tested to ensure its purity and potency, reducing heavy metals.
