Did you know that in addition to the many well-known benefits of fish oil, it can also help you achieve your fitness goals? Research has shown that the two main omega-3 fatty acids from from fish; EPA and DHA, supports metabolism, a healthy inflammatory response, and even aid weight loss.
Promotes respiratory and circulatory function
Exercise increases the demand on the circulatory system to provide oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, lungs, and brain, and to remove metabolic waste like lactic acid. Fish oil has been shown to support lung function, and to promote blood flow and oxygen delivery to activate muscle by enhancing blood vessel function.
Enhances cardiovascular and metabolic performance
Decades of scientific research has shown that fish oil promotes cardiovascular health and function—including supporting circulation and blood vessel health, and helping maintain healthy lipid levels. Fish oil has also been shown to support optimal body composition and fat metabolism.
Supports the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response
Exercise often stresses the body. Omega-3s from fish oil support the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response. This can enhance endurance, protect against free radical damage, and promote joint flexibility, mobility, and comfort.
