Omega 3, 6, 7 & 9
Essential fatty acids are well researched and have known benefits in the general wellbeing of the cardiovascular system the musculoskeletal system, mucosa and the brain.*123 They have also been shown to have positive effects on thermogenesis, insulin sensitivity *45, anabolism and reduce PG2s prostaglandins *6 ,decreasing inflammation and aiding recovery. Paradox provides the perfect combination of stabilised Omega fatty acids to maintain and promote the health of a number of body systems and redresses the Omega fatty acid imbalance found in typical “western diets” .
Vitamin D has long been recognized for its beneficial effect on bone
health, however in recent years there is an increased understanding of the role vitamin D plays in the regulation of cell growth, immunity and cell metabolism. A high prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized worldwide and is now a major health concern *7
Prevent inflammation, help recovery, focus and concentration
Overtraining promotes the proliferation of free radicals and inflammatory reactions in the muscle tissue. Research has also shown that starting even moderately intensive training has the same impact on the muscles, resulting in an increased risk of injury and inflammtion. The blood of trained sports people who took an Omega fish oil supplement had a lower basic level of marker substances (eg CRP) that point to inflammatory reaction and a higher level of protection from anti-inflammatory substances (eg IL-2). Sports that demand intense periods of focus and concentration will also gain benefit from the correct balance of Omega fatty acids as they make up a large part of the brain.
A recent study has also shown supplementation with Omega 3 may improve lung function in athletes during and after exercise.*8
