Omega 3 fatty acids are poly unsaturated fatty acids that are mainly found in fish oil. They are popularly referred to as ‘fish fatty acids’, the most well-known being EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).

Many people tend to overlook the importance of Omega 3 as a food supplement. Still, this fatty acid should be on top of your list. Omega 3 is a basic supplement for every sportsman and woman.

Omega 3 fatty acids contribute to good health, they improve athletic performances and are an efficient weapon in the battle against overweight.

1) Health promoting effects of Omega 3

Omega 3 provides a wide range of health benefits: from teeth protection to the prevention and treatment of depressions, as well as the protection against sunburns. These are the main health benefits we wanted to stress:

Anti-aging effect
Omega 3 fatty acids slow down the aging process on a molecular level⁽¹⁾ , so the more Omega 3 fatty acids your blood contains, the slower your body cells age.

Good cholesterol management and a healthy heart
Omega 3 fatty acids reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good cholesterol (HDL), which is very important in heart and vascular disease prevention. 
Moreover, Omega 3 fatty acids reduce the triglycerides concentration in the blood. They reduce blood pressure and therefore have a positive effect on the heart.

Anti-inflammatory effects
A large number of studies have proven the anti-inflammatory effects of Omega 3 fatty acids. They also indicate the importance of Omega 3 as a part of your food pattern or supplements.

 

2) Omega 3 and athletic performance

Omega 3 fatty acids have an anti-catabolic effect⁽²⁾ : power athletes who take a fair daily dose of Omega 3 fatty acids will have better muscle recovery.
Indeed, a food pattern containing Omega 3 fatty acids makes the muscles more responsive to insulin and helps to reduce protein breakdown.
As a matter of fact, proteins build up more muscle mass when combined with Omega 3 fatty acids⁽³⁾. Take a couple of Omega 3 a day, and your protein shakes will help to stimulate muscle growth. These conclusions can be found in a number of medical studies.

 

3) Omega 3 and weight loss

As shown in several studies, Omega 3 fatty acids have largely proven their benefits in terms of weight loss. “You lose weight faster when taking fish oil (Omega 3) capsules”. This was the conclusion published by a team of Icelandic, Spanish and Irish researchers in the International Journal of Obesity⁽⁴⁾. In other words, fish oil (Omega 3) increases fat burning⁽⁵⁾. Besides, when you use Omega 3 fatty acids during your workout, you will increase the effect of that workout on fat loss and on the lean muscle mass⁽⁶⁾.
