6 Reasons We Love Fish Oil!

Omega-3

Of all the supplements you can take, one of the most important is fish oil, specifically Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil. Our modern diet does not provide enough of this critical nutrient as we need, which is why it’s so important to get Omega 3’s through supplementation. Here are some reasons why Omega-3’s are so important:

  • Omega 3’s help to switch off the genes that store fat (lipogenic) and to turn on the genes that break down fat (lipolytic)
  • Help to increase utilization of fat stores as energy from the fat cells
  • Helps to reduce inflammation caused by intense training.
  • Reduces pain as a result of decreased inflammation
  • Helps to improve mental focus, memory and overall brain function
  • Increases levels of serotonin (makes you feel happy), which has a very positive effect on mood and control of carb cravings
