Labeled the "Gatekeeper To Your Metabolism", highly purified Omega-3's have been shown to control whether your body stores fat or burns it... builds new muscle or breaks down what you have. Stop letting joint pain and inflammation ruin your workouts!
Pharmaceutical grade Omega-3's get right to the source of the pain by lubricating achy joints and preventing inflammation before it starts so you can feel what it's like to train without pain again!
If you’re not eating fish at least 4 times a week you’re not getting enough of the Essential Omega-3 fatty acids you need and it could be costing you any chance of maximizing your lean muscle building and fat loss efforts.
Appearing in highest concentration in brain cells... Omega-3's are deeply rooted in the functions of memory, mental alertness and reaction time. Multitask and organize with ease with a level of laser focus you most likely haven't experienced in awhile.
Omega-3 fatty acids can protect your body against the accumulation of the protein believed to be linked to Alzheimer's disease, according to studies published in The Journal of Neuroscience. Just another example of why EFA's have been given the reputation as an ingestible Fountain of Youth.
As the ONLY supplement endorsed by the American Heart Association... Omega-3's have been PROVEN to increase "good" cholesterol and decrease LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and heart disease risk! (Arm yourself with your daily combatant against the #1 killer in America)
When you workout you cause a mechanical breakdown of muscle tissue and muscle fiber micro-damage/inflammation. While this is a desired and necessary stimulus from which muscle regeneration and growth can occur... left uncontrolled, your body finds it nearly impossible to recover prior to the next workout and you wind up quickly descending into a vicious cycle of inflammatory overtraining. Simple math states that when you break down muscle cells faster than you can repair them... YOU DON'T GET RESULTS!
Omega-3's prevent this from happening by blocking excess inflammation before it starts (through powerful chemicals called prostaglandins) and therefore keeping the muscle repair process between workouts to a minimum. Think of them as your body's natural "firefighters" that race to the scene to put out the "flames" of muscle and connective tissue breakdown just before they get out of control and make growth impossible. But that's not all. Exciting new research is showing that the combination of ultra high grade omega-3's with protein is proving to produce even greater muscle building gains than protein alone, so those already consuming the typical high protein "bodybuilders" diet will see even more immediate changes to their bodies and reward for their hard efforts in the gym with the addition of pharmaceutical grade EFA's!
As fat burners, their potential gets even more intriguing. By keeping virtually every cell in your body operating at peak efficiency, pharmaceutical grade omega-3's can help you to achieve what's known as Peak Metabolic Activity (PMA) and speed up even the slowest metabolism to become a virtual fat burning furnace! Add in their scientifically proven abilities to stabilize key weight management hormones like insulin and leptin (which control your appetite and how your body stores fat) and you've got the ultimate ally in your battle to achieve sub-10% body fat levels year round.
As the key building blocks to not only your muscle and fat cells but EVERY cell in your body, omega-3 fatty acids can impact your overall health and metabolism more significantly than any other supplement you can put in your body. Fail to include them in your supplement regimen (or even worse... turn to inferior sources to get them) and your body will pay the price as you suffer the effects of overtraining at a cellular level.
You cannot synthesize essential fatty acids on your own... you absolutely need to find a reliable source to get them from if you're going to optimize your health. They're called ESSENTIAL for very good reason!

Omega–3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because humans cannot make them; therefore, they must be obtained through the diet or supplementation. Fish oils are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids that offer numerous health, as well as a variety of performance-enhancing effects, such as increasing muscle growth, improving strength and physical performance, reducing exercise-induced muscle damage and delayed-onset muscle soreness, combating negative immune effects of intensive training, strengthening bones, improving heart and lung functioning, and enhancing cognitive functioning.
- Increases protein synthesis
- Lowers cortisol and counters mental stress
- Reduces vascular response to stress
- Improves immune response to intense exercise
