Health Benefits of Omega-3 and Vitamin D3
What are the health benefits of Omega-3 and Vitamin D3? Discover advantages for better athletic, fitness, physical and mental performance.
Every year, we make plans to get our health back on track. Whether that is losing weight, sleeping more, giving up fries or starting yoga, we all make new year resolutions. While these resolutions are wonderful, one of the best ways to improve your health and wellbeing is to start taking omega-3 fish oil and vitamin D3 daily.
Athletes are aware of the difference proper nutrition can make in their training and performance. However, many athletes don’t realise how important omega-3 fatty acids are for their focus, performance and recovery.
No matter what exercise you choose to do and no matter what level of fitness you have, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D3 can be an important part of your fitness plan.
Omega-3 in a Healthy Diet
Omega-3 is a vital element of any healthy diet. Omega-3s support heart, brain, eye health and help control inflammation.
By reducing inflammation, you can shorten your recovery time by reducing soreness and stiffness after a workout. All athletes can benefit from adding omega-3 into their daily regime to help support consistent training, maximise performance in competition and help maintain good health.
Omega-3s play a pivotal role in mental health. They support better concentration and focus. Not only are they structurally part of the brain and eyes, they are associated with less depression, less dyslexia and better cognition in adults. Oily fish provides the most beneficial and active fatty acids, commonly referred to as EPA and DHA. With 89% of Irish people not eating enough oily fish, there is a need to take a premium quality omega-3 fish oil such as Eskimo-3, which is known for its purity, freshness and stability.
Health Benefits of Omega-3
Heart Health and Circulation
EPA and DHA have been shown to improve heart health and reduce risk of sudden cardiac death. Omega-3 improves circulation, helps manage blood pressure, reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, thereby improving overall cardiovascular health.
Joint Health and Flexibility
Omega-3 fatty acids are converted into hormone like substances called prostaglandins. These are anti-inflammatory. By reducing inflammation, you can shorten your recovery time by reducing soreness and stiffness after a workout.
Promotes Mental Performance and Vision
Omega-3s play a pivotal role in mental health. They support better concentration and focus. Not only are they structurally part of the brain and eyes, they are associated with less depression, less dyslexia and better cognition in adults.

A pilot trial in middle aged adults reported improvements in cardiovascular health and greater loss of body fat among those who consumed 1.9 grams of EPA and DHA omega-3, compared to those on placebo.
Promotes Healthy Lung Function
Improved pulmonary function both during and after exercise was reported in a study of young healthy wrestlers who took 1 gram of EPA and DHA compared to placebo. All athletes can benefit from adding omega-3 into their daily regime, to help support consistent training, maximize performance competition and help maintain good health.
Sonia O’ Sullivan
Sonia O’ Sullivan, the Irish Olympic athlete love’s Eskimo-3. “Eskimo Oil is an essential part of my daily diet . I always keep the bottle handy so I don’t forget. Since I have been using Eskimo oil daily, I have noticed that all my aches and pains in my joints as a result of years and years of hard training and racing have disappeared. Sometimes I have to pinch myself on the run as I am amazed at how much more spring I have in my running, and it is so much more enjoyable to get out for a pain free run each day. Thank you Eskimo oil for renewing my love of running every day. I have also noticed that my skin has a healthy glow and smoothness, which I attribute to taking my oils daily. I can’t recommend Eskimo oils enough, they are perfect for the whole family.”
The Importance of Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 may be the most important “missing” vitamin for your brain and your mood. Vitamin D is vital for good health, immunity, growth and strong bones. Vitamin D also regulates the conversion of tryptophan into serotonin, which is your feel good hormone.
Vitamin D deficiency is common in Ireland, as sunshine is the number one source of vitamin D. Unfortunately, we don’t get a lot of sunshine in Ireland. Low levels are thought to be responsible for S.A.D. Therefore, supplementing with vitamin D during the winter months can help ease symptoms and improve mood.
