Omega 3 Promotes Muscle Production

Here’s a really interesting article I recently came across:

Sarcopenia, the loss of muscle mass with aging, is a major public health concern. Previous studies have found that omega-3 fatty acids stimulate protein anabolism in animals, and might therefore be useful for the treatment of sarcopenia. Bettina Mittendorfer, PhD, from Washington University School of Medicine (Missouri, USA studied 16 healthy adults, average age 71 years, and an average BMI of 25.65 kg, assigning each to receive either omega-3s (providing provided a daily dose of 1.86 grams of EPA [eicosapentaenoic acid] and 1.5 grams of DHA [docosahexaenoic acid]), or corn oil (placebo) for eight weeks.

At the end of the study period, the researchers found that the omega-3 fatty acid supplementation increased the rate of muscle protein production and increased the supply of amino acids and insulin. The team concludes that: “Omega-3 fatty acids stimulate muscle protein synthesis in older adults and may be useful for the prevention and treatment of sarcopenia.”

If muscle loss or inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, cystic fibrosis is an issue for you then we recommend you try Nature’s Relief Omega 3

About the author
New Zealand based Nature Bee was born in 1997 when Jeff and Ben Cook joined forces. The father / son team discovered a special process developed by Canterbury University, still considered to be ground breaking today, that unlocks the nutrients of bee pollen, making it far more digestible than normal bee pollen. This proprietary process was later to be named the ‘potentiation process' and is continually used only by Nature Bee on their New Zealand bee pollen. Nature Bee is now available in almost every country in the world.
