Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid, so our body can't make it. Among the omegas, this is considered the most important.
We can include in our day to day foods rich in Omega 3, such as sardines, tuna, salmon, walnuts, flax seeds, among others.
Still European food is poor in Omega 3, hence the need for supplementation. Omega-3 deficits increase even more in pregnancy, in sports and in inflammatory, autoimmune or neurodegenerative diseases.

The practice of exercise leads to a physical wear, which can interfere with the immune system, as well as cause inflammatory reactions. If it is a high intensity sport, high training loads and poor recovery may increase the chance of a muscle injury.
According to studies, Omega 3 attenuates the inflammatory process in the injured muscle, thus reducing recovery time and improving the response to high intensity exercise.

- Decreases inflammation;
- Improves injury recovery;
- Lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides;
