Omega-3´s are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. EPA and DHA play an important role in improving training, and endurance and enhancing recovery.

Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease is a big deal for athletes and that is the main reason to incorporate omega-3 supplementation as part of their exercise regime.

International sports entities recommend an RDI (recommended daily intake) of about 200-500 mg of omega-3 EPA and DHA per day.

Omega-3´s help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease CHD, myocardial infarction, and cardiac death. Several studies demonstrate that EPA and DHA have a statistically significant reduction in blood pressure, the main risk factor for coronary heart disease.

Omega-3’s are important for pregnant women and babies, especially DHA which plays an important role in brain and eye development for a growing baby, both during pregnancy and in the first months of the baby´s life. 

Additionally, a recent study found that women taking omega-3 supplements while pregnant, had a reduced risk of early preterm birth (less than 34 weeks), preterm birth (between 34-37 weeks), and babies born with low birth weight (less than 5.5 pounds). 

Local and international guidelines recognize that Omega´s are an important nutrient during pregnancy and breastfeeding. European Food Safety Authority and other international agencies recommend that pregnant and breastfeeding women take 100-300mg DHA per day.
