PROGENEX Omega+ Product Information
Reduce Inflammation. Speed Recovery. Enhance Performance
PROGENEX Omega+, the powerful Omega 3 sports nutrition supplement featuring krill and calamari oil, the all-natural anti-inflammatory astaxanthin and vitamin D.
PROGENEX Omega+ is a powerful, readily available and absorbable, Omega 3 supplement. Unlike other Omega 3 supplements, Omega+ combines the most bioavailable source of Omega 3s - krill oil - with one of the world's most potent antioxidants - astaxanthin. This formidable combination is further complimented by the addition of calamari oil - rich in the essential fatty acid DHA - and Vitamin D3.
This special proprietary blend of ingredients is specifically formulated for CrossFit, gym, Olympic Weightlifting and endurance athletes and has been designed to enhance athletic performance and speed recovery.
PROGENEX Omega+ sports nutrition supplement helps to:
- Reduce oxidative stress and fight total body inflammation including reducing key inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein (Deutsch, 2007)
- Reduce triglycerides and bad cholesterol (LDL) and boost good cholesterol (HDL) (Bunea, 2004)
- Decrease inflammation and muscle soreness, and help maintain muscle mass (Bunea, 2004; Deutsch, 2007; Kidd, 2007)
- Reduce joint pain and prevent injuries due to overuse (Fry, 2001), and
- Increase overall energy (Koyama, 2006)
How it works
The potency and power of Omega+ lies in the special proprietary blend of premium ingredients.
First, we begin with krill oil - the most potent and bioavailable source of Omega 3s on the planet. Krill oil is superior to fish oil because the Omega 3s in krill oil are more readily available and absorbable by your body. The Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil are bonded with triglycerides, which are not water-soluble. This means that once you swallow your fish oil pill, the Omega 3s must pass through your small intestine to be emulsified before any cellular absorption can occur.
Krill oil, on the other hand, is water-dispersible. The Omega 3s found in krill are bonded with phospholipids (the same structure found in your cellular membranes). This structural similarity negates the need for digestion and provides your body's cells with an immediately available and absorbable supply of DHA and EPA. Krill oil also eliminates any unpleasant after-taste so you can kiss those "nasty fish burps" good-bye!
The many other benefits of krill are too many to list here.
Second, PROGENEX Omega+ harnesses the power of one of the most potent antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatories on the planet - astaxanthin.
Astaxanthin has been shown to:
- Lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL) by up to 55 percent (Bunea, 2004)…
- Reduce harmful triglycerides by up to 27 percent (Bunea, 2004)…
- Raise “good” cholesterol (HDL) by as much as 43.92 percent (Bunea, 2004)…
- Soothe the pain and discomfort of stiff joints by up to 29 percent (Deutsch, 2007)…
- Boost mental focus by as much as 49 percent (Kidd, 2007)…
- Decrease inflammation by as much as 29 percent (Deutsch, 2007), (Kidd, 2007)…
- Increase your energy by over 50 percent (Koyama, 2006)…
Additionally, Astaxanthin helps reduce oxidation and is one of the few antioxidants that can cross the blood brain barrier - delivering antioxidant protection to the brain, eyes, and central nervous system. Again, further facts focusing on the amazing powers of astaxanthin can be found in the research section.
Finally, we add calamari oil and vitamin D3.
Calamari oil contains ultra-high levels of DHA - one of the most important Omega 3 fatty acids for human growth, development, and maintenance.
Likewise, adequate levels of Vitamin D3 help improve mood and energy levels, as well as boost the immune system - all essential components for peak athletic performance.
As the only supplement on the market to combine an ultra-pure, super-bioavailable source of Omega 3s with one of the world's most powerful antioxidants and all-natural anti-inflammatories – PROGENEX Omega+ is the must have supplement for anyone serious about enhancing athletic performance, recovery, and endurance.
