Omega-3 Fatty Acids Improve Endurance

Omega-3 fatty acids— found in fish, walnuts, soybeans, beef and shrimp— promote blood vessel health and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Polish researchers found that omega-3 supplements improved endurance capacity in cyclists by increasing concentrations of nitric oxide by eight micromoles per liter, and boosting muscle blood flow by over five percent compared to a placebo (fake omega-3). This study agrees with several investigations from the University of Tokyo, which found that supplementing omega-3 rich fatty acids boosted exercise efficiency. Subjects took a daily dose of 3.6 grams per day of the omega-3s EPA and DHA. (European Journal of Sports Science, 15: 305-314, 2015)
