Monday, May 16th, 2011

Key to successful training results in body building is an understanding of what the body needs . Your body needs Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) they are unique in that the body cannot make them and therefore they must be taken from diet. The easiest way to ensure you are getting an exact amount of highly purified Essential Fatty Acids of which Omega3 is key  is  via supplementation -

Omega 3 is made up of  the main active ingredients  DHA and EPA , EPA is the critical component for success in body building as a result you should look for a formulation that is high in this anti inflammatory ingredient , in fact it is believed to be the most powerful natural anti inflammatory as research has shown detailed in previous blogs. TakeOmega 3 offers the highest concentration of EPA per capsule with 750mg EPA per capsule as well as that it is manufactured in MHRA approved facilities which ensure this product is both of the highest purity and concentration.

EPA is key to better oxygen delivery , it dilates the blood vessels and works in a very similar way to viagra as a result helps removal of waste products such as carbon dioxide  and lactic acid . It also assists oxygen and nutrients in reaching the muscles where they are needed

EPA is key to a healthy cardiovascular system , and cardio health is of  importance to body builders and indeed anyone who keeps fit  . It also improves gut health and digestion and reduce inflammation in the gut  ie leaky gut , IBS , Crohns Disease

EPA regulates blood pressure and reduces platelet stickiness

EPA ( eicosapentaenoic acid) omega3 fish oil has been show to be the most potent omega 3 to build muscle growth . In order to successfully build muscle EPA is critical as it blocks the breakdown process and muscle grows when it is being built up faster than when it breaks down . EPA is the most potent natural anti inflammatory as has been shown by scientific research in early blogs and it helps to reduce excess muscle inflammation and the connective tissue by increasing the level of prostaglandins .

Also a lot of bodybuilders are troubled by dry skin and other skin conditions due to a low fat diet ,  a low fat diet also  impacts on testosterone produce

Studies have shown that Omega 3  specifically EPA directly impacts in the following area

Enhances stamina / stroke performance between 40%-60%

Improves muscular development

Omega 3 EPA reduces LDL cholesterol levels – TakeOmega3 has 750mg EPA per capsule

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

New clinical study results presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions show that the long-chain omega-3 fatty acid EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), helped significantly reduce small dense LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.

“This study suggests that supplementation with the omega-3 fatty acid EPA may present unique benefits for cardiovascular health,” said Sujata K. Bhatia, M.D., Ph.D., research associate with DuPont. “EPA was shown to have advantageous effects on several biomarkers, including LDL cholesterol, small dense LDL, and lp-PLA2.”

EPA is a long-chain fatty acid that is found primarily in cold water, fatty fish like sardines anchovies mackerel  as well as some omega-3 fatty acid such as TakeOmega3 which has 750 mg EPA per capsule  and is the highest grade omega 3 available in UK . A growing body of evidence suggests that EPA is the long-chain omega-3 that supports heart health.

The study, conducted by Cardiovascular Research Associates and sponsored by DuPont, was conducted among 110 healthy individuals comparing the effects of EPA supplements to DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) supplements on cardiovascular health. The participants were placed into four study groups and examined over a six week period. During that time, each group was monitored while taking: EPA 600 mg per day; EPA 1,800 mg per day; DHA 600 mg per day; and an olive oil placebo.

The study found that in the 1,800mg EPA group, there were significant reductions of 7 percent for small dense low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and 6 percent for lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (lp-PLA2). lp-PLA2 is an enzyme involved in vascular inflammation.
In contrast, the 600mg DHA group showed a significant increase in total small dense LDL cholesterol in both the fasting and fed state of 14.2 percent and 16.3 percent respectively.

The study results will be featured during the American Heart Association Conference poster session in Chicago
