Faster Recovery After Exercise With Omega-3’s

A new study in the Clinical Journal of Sport and Medicine reported that participants who supplemented with 1.8 grams of omega-3 fatty acid per day significantly reduced post exercise inflammation up to 48 hours after exercise, compared to those who didn’t.

The study was done on men who had not exercised in the 60 days prior to the study. They were tested prior to exercise and supplementation, and then after a 24- and 48-hour period for certain inflammation markers. The study found that omega-3’s reduced exercise induced inflammation.

This is just another reason to take a good quality omega-3 supplement. You can also load up on an omega-3-rich meal post workout to help reduce soreness and inflammation. Try a salad topped with walnuts and some salmon.
