CNP Professional launches Pro Omega
Pro Omega: an essential fatty acid supplement especially formulated for sportspeople.
[UKPRwire, Fri May 15 2009] CNP Professional has launched Pro Omega an essential fatty acid supplement especially formulated for athletes and other sportspeople who push their bodies to the limits time and time again, either through short periods of intense exercise or through longer and physically challenging, endurance events.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are necessary to life. They maintain the healthy function of many organs, including the heart and brain, as well as being important for the eyes, skin, joints, hair and, crucially, the immune system. The body cannot make EFAs for itself nor can it store them, so they have to be supplied through diet.
There are many EFA supplements on the market, but training and competing athletes have different requirements and, most often, a different diet to the rest of the population. CNP has looked at the specific needs of all those involved in competitive sports and formulated Pro Omega to match them.
It contains precise ratios of Omega 3, 6 and 9 that have been blended with anti-oxidants and plant sterol esters to promote cardiovascular health through cholesterol reduction, reduce systemic stress and improve degenerative joint conditions or injuries.
The EFAs in Pro Omega are:
• EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexanoic acid) - polyunsaturated fats containing omega 3 that are found primarily in oily cold-water fish such as tuna, salmon, and mackerel;
• ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) - a polyunsaturated fat classed as an omega 3 found primarily in dark green leafy vegetables, flaxseed oils, and certain vegetable oils;
• GLA (gamma linoleic acid) a polyunsaturated fat classed as an Omega-6, found in cereals, eggs, poultry, most vegetable oils, whole-grain breads, baked goods, and margarine; and
• LA (Linoleic Acid) is a polyunsaturated fat classed as an Omega-6 found in vegetable oils and margarine.
Pro Omega is supplied in bottles of 120 capsules. The recommended dosage is 3 – 5 capsules taken twice daily after a meal. It is available from the CNP website (www.cnpprofessional.co.uk) at a special introductory offer price of £14.09 and from high street retailers at a rrp of £17.61
