Every new year, we make plans to get our health back on track, be it by losing weight, sleeping more, giving up fries or starting yoga. 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 “healthy” plan for getting ahead.
Omega-3 is a vital element of any healthy diet as they 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, and 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. Surprisingly, a massive 89% of Irish people are not consuming sufficient oily fish in their diet, so often there is a need to take a premium quality omega-3 fish oil such as Eskimo-3 – known for its legendary purity, freshness & stability.
Health Benefits of Omega-3
Heart Health & 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 & Flexibility
Omega-3 fatty acids are converted into hormone like substances (prostaglandins) which 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, and 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.
Supports Healthy Metabolism
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 – 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 as ever 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 everyday. 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.”
Vitamin D – The Sunshine Vitamin
Vitamin D3 may bethe 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 – your feel good hormone. Vitamin D deficiency is common in Ireland, as sunshine is the number one source of vitamin D, which unfortunately we don’t get a lot of in Ireland. Low levels are thought to be responsible for S.A.D and therefore supplementing with vitamin D during the winter months can help ease symptoms and improve mood.
