Do you supplement with Omega 3 Fish oil on a daily basis? Have you read our post about how important getting your Omegas in are for your health, performance and recovery? Check it out!
Patty from CrossFit Vancouver called me today to introduce a new brand of Fish oil that was created for a CrossFitter like you! Check out MightyOmega fish oil!
A New Generation of Omega-3 Fatty Acid Concentrate
MightyOmega represents a new generation of omega-3 fatty acid concentrate because of its state-of-the-art low temperature supercritical extraction process and its research proven Functional Omega Ratio1.
As a result, MightyOmega contains no heat-damaged toxic molecules, nearly undetectable levels of heavy metals (see Table 1) and produces research-level results in acute, therapeutic or preventative health programs.
MightyOmega uses a unique, state-of-the-art extraction process called supercritical extraction that uses carbon dioxide instead of solvents such as alcohol or acetone. As a result, the delicate omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are exposed only briefly to minimal amounts of heat. Therefore, MightyOmega contains no heat-damaged toxic molecules.
In contrast, conventional fish oil formulas are made using the process of molecular distillation—which requires fish oil to go through a series of heating steps under vacuum to extract and purify the oils. In fact, fish oils usually become heated to near frying temperature during this process. As a result, conventional fish oils usually contain heat-damaged toxic molecules.
Research shows that omega-3 products containing an EPA:DHA ratio greater than 3:1 produce superior results in specific situations (see Table 2).
As a result of this emerging research, MightyOmega uses the Functional Omega Ratio (6.5:1 ratio of EPA to DHA) to deliver rapid and reliable results in acute, therapeutic and preventative health care programs.
