First of all, let’s discuss what Fish Oil is. Fish oil is jam packed with Omega-3 fatty acids that are derived from the tissues of oily fish. Ideally, you should take about 6 grams of Fish Oil everyday.
In creating this habit, you are aiding in reducing pain and inflammation in the body. Fish Oil contains Omega 3 fatty acids, particularly EPA, which has a very positive effect on your inflammatory response. We recommend taking fish oil as a key aid in combatting muscle soreness.
Fish Oil also has benefits for your cardiovascular health in lowering cholesterol, triglycerides, LDLs and blood pressure levels, while at the same time increasing good HDL cholesterol. Let’s not leave out that this all lowers your risk of having a stroke or a heart attack.
Research shows Omega-3 fatty acids break up clots before they can cause any damage.
Omega-3 fatty acids are “good fats” that are essential for optimal health. Like vitamins and minerals, omega-3 must be provided by our diet as it is not produced by our bodies. EPA and DHA are the active forms of omega-3 required by the body to perform vital functions.
If you have more questions about how to implement Fish Oil into your daily regiment or workout program, please consult your Ellipse Fitness trainer. It is essential that as you begin taking Fish Oil, you start slow and at a lower dose than 6 grams daily to allow your system to adjust to the intake of the fatty oils and absorb them properly.
