You already know Omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil are essential for your cardiovascular and brain health. Did you know they are equally important to your fitness regime? Current research has proven the effectiveness of fish oil in both weight loss and fat loss. Recovery from injury is yet another benefit from Omega 3 fish oil. Louisville’s own Dr. Christopher Mohr, PhD, RD, CSSD, of Mohr Results, will delve deeper in explaining how you can ramp up your fitness program, while cooling down inflammation. “Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for disease prevention and increased quality of life. Aside from their benefit on the heart, brain, and other areas of the body you can’t “feel” on a daily basis, they also help with joint fluidity and pain reduction, which are very tangible issues. The benefits received from obtaining adequate levels of omega-3 fats go on forever and I believe they should be as “mainstream” as a simple multivitamin.” —Christopher Mohr Dr. Christopher Mohr, PhD RD is a nutrition spokesperson and consultant to a number of media outlets and corporations including Discovery Health Channel, The Dairy Council, Clif Bar, and Nordic Naturals.
