Super Strength Omega 3 1000mg - 90 Capsules (Unflavoured)
Omega 3 fatty acids are compounds usually found in oily fish, two of which are of importance when supplementing fish oil into your daily diet: EPA and DHA. Both EPA and DHA are building blocks of immune cells, act as inflammatory mediators and support cardiovascular health.
Including a daily dose of Omega 3 can support normal immune function as well as brain, eye and heart health, whilst studies have shown taking Super Strength Omega 3 can lead to anaerobic endurance capacity and a reduction in muscle soreness following exercise.
More about the science behind Super Strength Omega 3
- Immune health - Both EPA and DHA are building blocks of immune cells and act as precursors of the inflammatory mediators: prostaglandins and leukotrienes (1, 2)
- Cardiovascular health - EPA and DHA elicit beneficial effects on cholesterol via increases in high-density lipoproteins (HDL) which plays an important role in transporting cholesterol to the liver to be expelled from the body (3, 4)
- Reduction in muscle soreness - supplementation with omega 3 has been linked to a reduction in the delayed onset of muscle soreness following eccentric muscle damaging exercise (5, 6). With lower perceived pain reported and decreased thigh circumference (6), this 48-hour post-exercise reduction in thigh circumference may indicate a reduction in muscle swelling and inflammation
- Increase in anaerobic endurance capacity - In a group of competitive football players, an increase in anaerobic endurance capacity was identified through increased distance covered in the Yo-Yo test (a high-intensity running protocol) when supplementing with omega 3 fatty acids compared to a placebo trial (7)
- Higher muscle oxygen uptake - an increase in nitric oxide production was linked to higher muscle oxygen uptake and increases in VO2 max have been seen in a group of endurance trained cyclists supplementing with omega 3 (8)

The Science in Sport Super Strength Omega 3 delivers high levels of EPA and DHA. These act as building blocks of immune cells and inflammatory mediators. It is well known that there is an inflammatory response to exercise and prolonged, heavy training can cause immunosuppression. Including a daily dose of omega 3 can support in normal immune function both post-exercise and in athlete populations. Omega 3 supplementation may also play a beneficial role in cardiovascular health.
