Part 2: Omega-3s: Heart-Healthy Super Nutrient Emerges As A Powerful Anti-Catabolic



Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Supplement Articles, Omega-3, ProSource: Omega-1250 | Feb 21, 2007



Highly versatile super-nutrient helps create a perfect bodily environment for muscle gain and peak performance

There is also significant evidence that omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and flaxseed can slow auto-immune damage due to their anti-inflammatory properties. Following an intense training session, the muscles require the formation of eicosanoids before the healing process can commence. Eicosanoids are hormone-like substances derived only from essential fatty acids (arachidonic acid in Omega-3) in foods or supplements. These regulate immune and inflammatory responses.

There are many different types of eicosanoids, prostaglandins (PGs) being the most common. PGs are three families of short-lived, hormone-like substances that regulate blood pressure, platelet stickiness, and kidney function. A delicate balance between PGs with opposing functions, in part determined by omega-6 and omega-3 intake, determines the health of our cardiovascular system. A healthy cardiovascular system clearly is of importance to bodybuilders.

EFAs also assist electric charges that produce the bio-electric currents important for nerve, muscle, and cell membrane functions, and the transmission of messages along neural pathways. Muscular coordination and the firing of as many muscle fibres as possible (during a set) are important in the gym. In addition, EFAs help form red blood pigment (hemoglobin) from simpler substances. Sufficient hemoglobin levels are important for bodybuilders as they will ensure that oxygen and nutrients reach the muscles, where they are needed. Also, waste products (including carbon dioxide and lactic acid), will be removed with greater efficiency if hemoglobin levels are sufficient.

There is also evidence that EFAs may help improve insulin sensitivity and modulate lipid metabolism. EFAs help support hormone-producing (endocrine) glands. Endocrine glands (pancreas, thyroid, pituitary and gonads) secrete hormones into extra-cellular space, which then diffuse into the bloodstream. The pancreas assists blood sugar stability. The thyroid helps to govern protein synthesis, fat metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, heart rate and ventilation rate and the actions of the nervous system.

The highest-potency source of vital Omega-3s you can buy
The best Omega-3 sources are fish (ideally cold water fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel and trout) and flaxseed oil. Athletes require Omega-3s in amounts many times larger than typical vitamin dosages (grams as opposed to milligrams). Given that Omega-3s need to be taken in larger doses, a supplemental form is ideal.

This is where ProSource Omega-1250 comes in. This state-of-the-art supplement contains an unprecedented 750 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids per capsule. For comparison, the leading Omega-3 product at GNC only contains a total of 400 mg fatty acids per capsule. Many have far less. Many others contain inferior grades of EPA and DHA, which are scarcely bioavailable at all. On the other hand, ProSource Omega-1250 is derived from the highest-quality sources of Omega-3's and manufactured to meet ProSource's extraordinarily high standards.

If you want to shut down counterproductive post-workout catabolism while protecting your heart, muscles and immune system, Omega-3 fatty acids should be an important part of your supplementation regimen. And ProSource's Omega-1250 is the purest, highest-quality, most potent form of Omega-3 currently available!
