Optimega Creates A Fitness Specific Omega-3 Shot

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent research shows that most Americans do not ingest sufficient amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids in their diet alone, and often turn to supplements to help get enough of these healthy fats. One of the most common sources of Omega-3 fatty acids is fish oil. While eating fish, such as salmon or mackerel, can be a good way to get fish oil, it can be difficult to eat a diet full of enough fish to meet the daily recommended dose of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Based in the United States, breakthrough company Optimega offers a new way to get a daily recommended dose of Omega-3s: Drinkable, great-tasting 2.5 oz "shots." Unlike capsules, which can take a long time to digest and absorb, Optimega's Omega-3 shots are quickly absorbed by the body, delivering energy and mental clarity.

Another aspect of Omega-3 fatty acids is the role they play in sports nutrition. Optimega's OMEGA ShotsTM Sport was developed by a team of sports nutritionists to help enhance workout performance. The two most vital types of omega-3s found in fish oil are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Optimega's OMEGA ShotsTM Sport delivers 500mg EPA and 500mg DHA with higher bioavailability than taking the same amount of fish oil in capsule form. This means that more Omega-3s actually get absorbed into the body, rather than being passed through, without getting the full benefits.

Fish oil has massive implications for fitness enthusiasts because the anti-inflammatory properties in fish oil have been shown to reduce muscle soreness and speed up recovery time in between workouts. Often, there is a delay in the onset of muscle soreness after a difficult workout, so the pain only starts to fully manifest itself the next day, or roughly twelve hours later.

The soreness following workout is caused by tiny tears in the muscles caused by applying stress to a new area of the body. By helping to keep inflammation down, fish oil helps the body heal itself more quickly, diminishing the feeling of soreness while filling in the gaps of torn muscle to help them gradually increase in size and strength.

Optimega provides nearly double the recommended minimum dose of Omega-3s required to get these beneficial effects, and all in an appealing, easy to drink shot. Optimega has an entire lineup of specific shots formulated for daily use like Omega Shots™  Daily Support, and shots formulated for specific body needs, like Omega Shots™ 50+ and Omega Shots™ Prenatal. Optimega LLC is changing the way people consume Omega-3 fatty acids. As an important part of human development, Omega-3s help to build a healthy body, but until now the available options for ingestion have been limited to pills or food. Optimega is the first of their kind when it comes to drinkable shots geared towards sports nutrition.
