Omega 3 and its benefits for sport

50 years ago, children were already being given cod liver oil to improve their health, but many were put off by the taste. Yet the approach was relevant. Today, you can continue to give your body what our ancestors tried to pass on to us, but without worrying about the taste. Our fish oil-based Omega 3s are in capsules and no longer have this drawback.

Omega-3s are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential for the body. They help fight inflammation and joint problems and are an important structure for our brain and nervous system.

They are found mainly in fish oils. These fats are essential to our bodies because they cannot all be manufactured by the body. However, from linoleic acid, it can produce the rest of the omega-3 fatty acids useful to the body.

Numerous studies have been carried out into their effectiveness, some of which are still ongoing.

For an adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids, vegetable oils rich in omega-6, such as corn, sunflower and soya oil, should be avoided; rapeseed, walnut, linseed and olive oils are more suitable.

On the other hand, it's still a good idea to eat at least two meals a week containing fish, eggs, chia seeds, walnuts or seaweed, which also provide our bodies with omega fatty acids. The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids compete with each other. It is therefore important to ensure a good balance between these two omega acids because they need the same enzymes to be assimilated and, although omega-6 fatty acids are also involved in many bodily functions, an excess can have negative effects on the body and promote inflammation, for example.

Of course, the ideal would be to consume enough Omega-3 fatty acids via the diet. But it would be difficult for any of us to eat fish twice a week, as it would make no ecological sense. Fish is also sometimes loaded with heavy metals that are harmful to health. Food supplements are controlled and do not have this disadvantage and are therefore a safe source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega 3 from care by QNT offers a dosage of 1200 mg of omega 3 with 2.75 g of vitamin E per capsule and guarantees a daily intake of Omega 3 sufficient to take full advantage of all their benefits. Omega 3 (100 mg) on the other hand has slightly less EPA and DHA but 6 mg of vitamin E.

Particularly important for all active people, Omega 3 also helps to reduce inflammatory reactions due to training in muscles and joints. They therefore enable optimal muscle recovery after exercise and promote overall muscle mass growth as well as being excellent for your health. The oils used in QNT's Omega 3 are cold-extracted from wild Scandinavian fish.

They are then carefully purified and encapsulated in Belgium using a modern anti-oxidation process. As you can see, everything has been done to preserve the raw power of nature that lies at the heart of these precious fish oils. Don't wait any longer and start your Omega 3 cure now to shine with strength and health!

Omega 3: essential vitamins for your health

So it's now crystal clear! The Omega 3 are very powerful fatty acids that make a major contribution to the growth and proper functioning of the body as a whole. It's important to know that Omega 3s are made up of two major active ingredients: docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). The benefits for the proper functioning of the nervous system and the brain in general are attributed to the DHA contained in Omega 3. In fact, it acts as a neuronal protector, particularly against strokes or epileptic seizures. It also helps to maintain normal eyesight. Omega 3 therefore helps significantly in the fight against cognitive disorders such as memory loss, or diseases such as Alzheimer's, schizophrenia or depression. By reducing neuronal inflammation, Omega 3s are vital partners in the well-being of your grey matter!

Omega 3s are also highly effective in protecting the cardiovascular system. In fact, Omega 3 prevents the formation of blood clots, helps to reduce high blood pressure and tachycardia. This greatly reduces the risk of stroke or heart attack. These fatty acids are therefore powerful allies for the heart. They help to protect it from attacks and diseases, and contribute to its optimal functioning on a day-to-day basis. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world and is caused by a number of factors: age, diet, excess weight, etc. It is therefore vital to take care of your heart system beforehand with a balanced diet and regular physical activity.

Finally, Omega 3 also help to combat anxiety and depression. They can have a significant effect on daily mood and stimulate good mental fitness. In fact, oils rich in EPA and DHA - such as fish oils - are particularly recommended for combating the symptoms of depression. In this way, Omega 3s have a complete beneficial action on your body, protecting both your cognitive and cardiac functions, and relieving daily anxiety and depression.

The benefits of Omega 3 for sport.

Omega 3s are also useful for helping to burn fat and lose weight. In fact, these marvellous fatty acids notably prevent the multiplication of fat cells, more particularly in "visceral" fat. Omega-3 fatty acids help the metabolism to burn fat more efficiently, thanks in particular to their stimulating action on anabolic hormones. This is how they prove particularly effective in improving the lipolysis process in the body. Omega 3 thus helps to transform unhealthy fats into energy fuel, both during periods of activity and rest, thereby promoting weight loss and maintaining a healthy body weight.

Finally, Omega 3 are also very useful for optimal muscle recovery after exercise. In fact, these virtuous fatty acids will act directly on muscle microcracks caused by training to repair them more effectively. They are also highly effective in preventing inflammatory diseases. They help solidify ligaments and limit rheumatism by acting directly on the structure of collagen.

Moreover, thanks to their anti-catabolic action, Omega 3 will help reduce feelings of soreness and pain, thus improving muscle recovery. This will allow you to follow training sessions without a drop in performance, and to continue to progress with greater performance while limiting the risk of injury.
