Frequently Asked Questions
What are omega-3 fatty acids?
Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats. Two types of omega-3 in particular are plentiful in oily fish: EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid), which are the most thoroughly researched omega 3s.
What’s the difference between EPA and DHA?
EPAs (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) main function is to produce chemicals called eicosanoids, which help reduce systemic inflammation. EPAs have also been shown to help reduce symptoms of depression, as well as help manage cholesterol, triglyceride and blood pressure levels. DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) makes up about 8% of brain weight and contributes to brain development and function.
How does omega-3 support brain function?
Omega-3 fats are important not just for the brain, but are key in heart, eye, joint and skin health too. The brain is an interesting one, being made of 60% fat it's easy to see the importance of omega-3 fats in brain cognition, visual signalling, reaction times and even mood.
How does omega-3 reduce inflammation?
Omega 3 fats reduce inflammation by counteracting free radicals which have the potential to damage cells. Exercise though also produces free radicals – which are an important part of adaptation – but in excess can also cause damage, ongoing soreness and pain.
What's the best time to take omega-3 for performance outcomes?
The benefits of fish oil come from longer term and consistent use. They can be taken any time of day, but the fats are best absorbed in conjunction with fats in a meal. Morning and evening meals make this easy and consistent.
