Fish Oil - 5% Nutrition


When the talk turns to supplements, most bodybuilders want all the flash they can get. Did you say Fish Oil? No way bro, that’s a bore. What can Fish Oil possibly do for me?

Let’s find out. Fish Oil comes from “oily” fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring, and anchovies. Fish Oil is important because it provides Omega-3 EFAs (essential fatty acids).

They are “essential” because the body does not produce them. Yet they are critical for overall good health. For that reason, you need to get them from diet and supplements.

Basic good health is one of the keys to your success in bodybuilding or your chosen sport. You need to be fundamentally healthy if you want maximum size and strength. Not to mention, Fish Oil has benefits that directly affect your workouts. That’s why there’s 5% Nutrition Core Fish Oil.

The Benefits of 5% Core Fish Oil include:

Faster Recovery 

This is one major key to muscle growth. Why? You grow when you give your body time to recover. You have to kill it in the gym, just like Rich said. Once you leave, recovery begins.

Fish Oil helps ease muscle soreness due to strenuous exercise. This can improve the body’s ability to recover after your workout. You’ll come back ready to train. Ultimately, that means you will achieve your mass and strength goals faster.(1,2)

Joint Support

Let’s be real. Sore joints can be a common problem among bodybuilders, powerlifters, and athletes. The heavier the weights, the more that’s true. Fish Oil is a common ingredient in many joint health products, and for good reason. It helps ease sore joints.(1)

Cognitive Support

Fish Oil is important for the maintenance of normal brain function throughout your life. The cell membranes of brain cells have a high quantity of EPA and DHA, the two primary Omega-3s in Fish Oil. They aid the preservation of cell membrane health. Also, they support communication between brain cells.(3)

Heart Health 

Fish Oil is thought to support overall heart health. The FDA has stated that there is limited research that suggests Fish Oil may lower the risk of coronary heart disease. This research is not conclusive.
