Most of us are now aware of the health benefits of omega 3 essential fatty acids yet the benefits of omega 6 and 9 are less commonly appreciated. It is important to achieve the correct balance between our total intake of omega 3, 6 and 9 which can be difficult due to the western diet containing more processed foods and fewer natural sources of these vital nutrients. These capsules provide all 3 omega’s in perfect balance, making them a convenient daily supplement.
Author of Faster: the Obsession, Science and Luck Behind the World’s Fastest Cyclists, Michael Hutchinson writes that, “The one thing that I am 100% sure works – and more or less everyone I’ve ever spoken to about it agrees – is Omega 3 fatty acids, or fish oil”.
In fact, a study conducted back in 2008 and published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology revealed the impact of this for athletes’ endurance training. “The test subjects, who were trained cyclists, supplemented with omegas for a period of eight weeks”. It was found that cyclists who took in omegas found it easier to perform the task well, needed less oxygen and maintained a lower heart rate throughout the test.
