“Why Omega 3- Fatty Acids Are Important for Lacrosse Players”

Why Omega 3- Fatty Acids Are Important for Lacrosse Players

BENEFITS
Increased support for memory, learning and concentration, support and protection for nerves, healthy blood flow and joint mobility are just a few of the incredible benefits scientists and researchers say are associated with DHA and EPA Omega 3’s and Fatty Acids.

What are Omega-3 fatty acids, and why do I need them?
Omega-3 fatty acids are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are building blocks of every living cell in the human body and required for optimal function of the cells. If you are not currently consuming at least 2 meals of fatty fish per week, you may benefit from a supplement rich in EPA and DHA omega 3’s.

What is the difference between EPA and DHA?
Omega-3 fatty acids are important to every cell in your body and must be obtained from the diet for good health. Our bodies use Omega-3s to form the outer cell structure. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are two of the most important Omega-3s.

Research suggests that EPA benefits the heart and circulatory system by promoting normal lipid levels and blood flow. EPA also plays a role in the natural movement of joints.

Evidence shows DHA is an important building block of the brain, nerves, and eyes. DHA is the most highly unsaturated fatty acid found in nature. DHA supports normal mental function, optimal memory, focus, and learning. In fetuses and infants, DHA is critical for brain and vision development.

The average American diet contains less than 200 milligrams of the important Omega-3s EPA and DHA. Japan, England, and several European countries have set Recommended Daily Allowances for Omega-3s, but there are none in the U.S. yet.

I have heard that fat is bad for you. How can Omega-3 fatty acids be good for you?
There are good and not-so-good fats. If a label indicates hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, that ingredient is an unsaturated fat that has undergone a chemical process called hydrogenation to turn it into saturated fat and trans fat. These hydrogenated fats are most often found in packaged foods such as pastries, cookies, and margarine.

Saturated fats are found in animal-based foods like meat, butter, and cheese. Saturated fats are not”bad” for you but a high intake of saturated fats as compared to poly and monounsaturated fats is associated with an increased risk of some diseases.

But some”good fats” like Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to health and normal cell development. They’re building blocks of every living cell in your body. A cell membrane made with building blocks that come primarily from saturated fat has a different structure and is less fluid than one which incorporates more Omega-3 fatty acids. This loss of fluidity makes it difficult for the cell to carry out its normal functions and increases the cell’s susceptibility to injury and death.

Omega-3 fatty acids are abundant in ocean fish, but many people in North America don’t eat a lot of fish and may need more Omega-3 fatty acids than their present diets provide.

What Omega 3 Supplement is best?
If you are not currently consuming at least 2 meals of fatty fish per week, you may benefit from a supplement rich in EPA and DHA. I recommend that you use the same safe, effective and organic Omega 3 supplements that professional athletes, MLB, NBA, NFL, MLS, MLL and Olympic athletes trust and believe in NUTRILITE® OCEAN ESSENTIALS® Balanced Health.

NUTRILITE® OCEAN ESSENTIALS® Balanced Health supports memory, learning, and concentration and nervous system with this blend of essential Omega-3s. NUTRILITE OCEAN ESSENTIALS Balanced Health provides a concentrated blend of 2 key Omega-3 fatty acids. Taken daily throughout the week, the combination provides the same amount of DHA and EPA as 24.5 oz servings of ocean fish.

NUTRILITE® OCEAN ESSENTIALS® Balanced Health provides support for normal blood triglycerides and healthy blood flow,
helps maintain joint mobility for an active lifestyle, may promote normal brain function and concentration and provides a special, 6-step process reduces unpleasant side effects common to competitors’ Omega-3 products.

“Slight Edge Performance Program” Sports Performance and Injury Prevention Tips

How much money will it cost you if you get sick or injured? How much is your Health Really Worth to you? As a Former Student-Athlete and now a Sports Performance Nutrition and Wellness Specialist I see a huge need for proper education and implementation of Preventative Health and Wellness solutions especially when it comes to Athletes Protecting their Own Health and Future.

Today you will learn about a vitamin, a mineral and a phytonutrient that are all vital to you performing at your maximum potential and staying healthy.

NIACIN is a VITAMIN also known as vitamin B3. NIACIN assists the Body’s conversion of FOOD into ENERGY. NIACIN works in the body to help proper functioning of the NERVOUS SYSTEM and METABOLISM PROCESS of Proteins and Fats. When You Think of the Vitamin NIACIN think ENERGY! NIACIN is found in Foods including eggs, milk, meat, cereal and green vegetables.

ZINC is an ESSENTIAL MINERAL that is needed along with other Enzymes to REPAIR wounds and maintain Fertility in adults and Growth in Children. ZINC also works to Synthesize Protein, Help Healthy Cells Reproduce, Preserve Vision, Boost IMMUNE SYSTEM STRENGTH and Protect against Free Radicals that Attack the Body. ZINC helps SUPPORT Healthy JOINTS and TISSUES Which is all very Important for ATHLETES. ZINC is Vital because it helps ATHLETES Speed up RECOVERY between Workouts.

LYCOPENE is a RED pigment found in RED Fruits and Vegetables like Tomatoes, Cherries, Apples, Cranberries, Red Peppers and GrapeFruit among many others. LYCOPENE is an Important PHYTONUTRIENT and ANTIOXIDANT that Supports CELL, PROSTATE, VASCULAR, IMMUNE and DNA HEALTH. Studies have shown that LYCOPENE has powerful BENEFITS that help REDUCE RISK of CANCER and CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE. LYCOPENE is a VERY important ANTIOXIDANT that helps PREVENT OXIDATIVE STRESS By Free Radicals which is CRUCIAL for Serious Athletes.

MOST people DO NOT CONSUME enough of these PROTECTIVE VITAMINS, MINERALS and PHYTONUTRIENTS through diet alone, Which is WHY it is VERY IMPORTANT to Take PLANT BASED, HIGH QUALITY, and ORGANIC SUPPLEMENTS that are CERTIFIED and Have EVIDENCE Based Research to ensure Effectiveness and Safety. These SUPPLEMENTS help Fill in the Gaps in your health.

Why do I need a supplement?
The American Medical Association recommends that all adults take one multivitamin daily. This is true even if you already eat a diet rich in fresh, whole, natural foods, because the foods you consume often don’t supply all the vitamins and minerals you need, at the recommended levels. If you’re going to supplement, why not start with the world’s best multi? NUTRILITE® DOUBLE X® Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient.
