Athletes are aware of the difference proper nutrition can make in their training and performance. But, what many don't know is that there is one important nutrient they may not be getting enough of. DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) is a poly-unsaturated omega-3 fatty acid found in nearly every cell in the body and supports brain, eye, and heart health throughout life. Like calcium is needed for strong bones, DHA is needed for strong brains. DHA represents 97% of the omega-3 fatty acids in the brain, 93% of the omega-3 fatty acids in the eye, and is a key component of heart tissue.
DHA supplementation can help optimize cognitive and cardiovascular performance. Emerging research has begun to highlight how athletes can benefit from including DHA in their diets and has been specifically identified to provide:
- Brain health benefits
- Improved cardiovascular efficiency
- Increased blood flow to the muscles
- Increased oxygen delivery to the muscles
- Optimized cardiovascular performance
- Lowers resting heart rate
- Balances the inflammatory response
