EndurOmega, Hammer Nutrition's fish-derived omega-3 essential fatty acid supplement, is one of the most important products we've ever produced. We're convinced that EndurOmega is such a vitally important supplement for EVERY single person - athlete and non-athlete alike - EVERY single day, that we've given it top-level, "Daily Essentials" status. Daily supplementation with EndurOmega will allow you to obtain all of the extraordinary benefits that omega-3 fatty acids have to offer, helping you take a HUGE step in the right direction for maximizing athletic performance and optimizing overall health.
Essential fatty acids - crucially important for you
Omega-3s and omega-6s are essential fatty acids (EFA) that everyone needs for life itself. Yes, life itself! Not only are these fats a key component in the structure of numerous parts of your body, including your brain, eyes, ears, reproductive organs, and more, they're an integral part of the membranes that surround and protect all of the cells in your body. That's right, every single cell! If your body doesn't have an adequate supply of these essential fatty acids, most every bodily function that you can think of ends up deteriorating. That's why it's no exaggeration at all to classify these fatty acids as "essential."
However, three issues exist when it comes to EFA:
1) Our bodies cannot make omega-3s or omega-6s; we have to obtain them from dietary sources.
2) Virtually everyone consumes far more omega-6 fatty acids than is necessary or healthy, yet comes up woefully short on omega-3 fatty acid intake. Research clearly shows that a dietary ratio of about 1:3 omega-3s to omega-6s is ideal. The average diet, however, is estimated to contain an unhealthy ratio of about 1:20 omega-3s to omega-6s.
3) Eating omega-3-rich fish such as wild-caught salmon, mackerel, and sardines two to three times a week is simply not possible for most of us.
This is precisely why you need EndurOmega. For the above-listed reasons, plus the plethora of benefits it provides, EndurOmega should most definitely be a part of your daily supplement program.
EndurOmega's potent & wide-ranging benefits
Athletic performance - EndurOmega greatly enhances endurance because it increases the absorption rate of the fat-soluble nutrients Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and idebenone, the two key substrates in Race Caps Supreme that are intimately involved in energy production. In addition, EndurOmega's essential fatty acids support lung function (and even help alleviate asthma symptoms) and the use of oxygen, both highly desirable for enhanced athletic performance. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil have also been shown to provide impressive anti-inflammatory benefits, beneficial when you're recovering between tough workouts and races.
General health - EndurOmega's fish oil provides one of the absolute strongest defenses against cardiovascular disease. Every day an increasing body of research confirms that fish oil is a powerful ally against athlerosclerosis, angina, heart attack, arrhythmias, stroke, and congestive heart failure. Fish oil helps to lower blood pressure, reduce elevated blood triglyceride levels, maintain arterial wall elasticity, and prevent blood clotting. No question about it, fish oil really is your heart's "best friend!"
Research shows that fish oil has a positive influence on brain function and mood, including the alleviation of anxiety, insomnia, mental fatigue, stress, depression, and more. Fish oil is beneficial for your eyes as well, helping to improve vision and aiding in the prevention in age-related macular degeneration. Helping maintain healthy skin and bones are additional benefits attributed to fish oil. Omega-3 fatty acids also play an important role in metabolism regulation and weight management (yes, to burn fat you have to eat fat. . . the right kind of fat!) Last, but certainly not least, higher intakes of omega-3 fatty acids may aid in the prevention of breast, colon, and prostate cancers (all three of these cancers have all been correlated with low omega-3 intake).
DHA, EPA. . . and DPA!
EndurOmega is rich in the two well-known, highly researched omega-3 fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), responsible for all of these extraordinary benefits. Additionally, EndurOmega also contains DPA (docosapentaenoic acid), an intermediate fatty acid between EPA and DHA, not often found in other fish oil supplements. DPA helps increase blood concentrations of both EPA and DHA (primarily EPA), while providing its own unique benefits, especially for heart, skeletal muscle, and kidney tissue health.
It should be quite obvious that we all need more omega-3s in our diet. Fish is the ideal source of these essential fatty acids, but consuming sufficient amounts of high-quality fish on a regular basis is difficult and expensive. That's why adding EndurOmega to your daily supplement regimen is more than just a good idea, it's essential!
EndurOmega is derived from molecularly distilled and deodorized Atlantic menhaden, and you can bet that if it's got the Hammer Nutrition name on the bottle, the product inside is guaranteed to be potent and pure. The fish oil contained in EndurOmega is regularly tested via third-party, independent laboratories for potency and purity, using AOAC international protocols and ICP-MS testing methods. And unlike many fish oil supplements, EndurOmega has no fishy aftertaste!
EndurOmega is a serious product that provides serious benefits (and so many of them!). That's why its achieved "Daily Essential" status. If you're at all serious about your athletic performance and health, you'll want to make EndurOmega a part of your daily supplement regimen.
