Omega-3’s: a pattern of deficiency with an easy solution

Omega-3’s are an essential component of every cell in the human body. As a result, having adequate levels of omega-3 impacts our body’s ability to function optimally. Unfortunately, research in collegiate athletes is showing a consistent pattern of low levels. In studies involving athletes, less than 1% have scored an omega-3 Index of 8% which is considered the benchmark for cardiovascular health.

In over 1,500 athletes from 9 NCAA Division I athletic programs, Ritz et al found only 6% of participants met the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ recommendation to consume at least 500 mg EPA+DHA/ day. Athletes simply aren’t eating enough omega-3, which can impact their overall health and performance.

Active Ingredients vs. Total Ingredients 

When evaluating the cost efficiency of products, it is imperative to consider the product’s EPA + DHA content rather than “fish oil” or “O3FA” content and non-concentrate supplement. 

An omega-3 concentrate like Enhanced Recovery typically provides a larger dose of EPA and DHA per serving to provide a more cost-effective intervention. 

If you don’t eat fish, Enhanced Recovery is a great way to get the Omega-3 your body needs. 

Omega-3’s: a pattern of deficiency with an easy solution

Fortunately omega-3 can be obtained in the diet, with a variety of fish and seafood available containing EPA and DHA levels. However getting adequate levels from food can be challenging. For many picky eaters, fish is an acquired taste. For others, especially budget-conscious college athletes, seafood is an expensive protein option.

Enhanced Recovery allows you and your athletes to work around those obstacles, providing a potent dose of omega-3’s hidden behind our delicious fruit smoothie flavor.

Omega-3 Supplements: Choose Wisely!

When choosing an omega-3 product for your athletes it is imperative to consider the quality and EPA+DHA dose. Many of the capsule products on the market hide low EPA+DHA by advertising a high “total omega-3 or total fish oil dose”. At Enhanced Recovery, transparency is important to us! Finding a product with a larger dose of EPA and DHA provides a more cost-effective intervention for you and your athletes.

Why do omega-3’s matter for athletes?

Neuroprotection

DHA is an important component of omega-3 supplementation and has been shown to reduce brain inflammation and axonal damage associated with contact sports (Oliver et al 2016)

Pre & Post-Surgical Recovery

Omega-3 supplementation around surgery can help manage the inflammatory response and preserve muscle mass following surgery (McGlory et al 2019)

Muscle Recovery: More than Protein and Carbs!

Compared to a protein + carb drink, the same drink with omega-3’s was shown to improve muscle recovery, reduce soreness and better support explosive power during pre-season training (Black et al 2018)

How much do athletes need?

General Health

500 mg/ day EPA+DHA

(at least 2 Enhanced Recovery/ week)

  • Report eating fish 1-2 times/ week
  • Maintenance dose after 6 months of therapeutic
  • Low intensity training

Moderate Intensity

1 g/ day EPA+DHA 

(at least 5 Enhanced Recovery/ week)

  • Non-fish eater
  • History of concussions
  • Athlete struggling with recovery
  • Long injury history

Therapeutic/High-Risk

 2 g/day EPA+DHA

(1-2 Enhanced Recovery/ day OR 5 Enhanced Recovery + 2-6 oz servings of fatty fish)

  • Neuroprotection: 8-12 weeks prior to start of season in contact sports
  • Recently diagnosed w/ concussion
  • Linemen/ higher bodyweight athletes
  • Athletes interested in extra cardiovascular support

Enhanced Recovery Advantages 

1. Complete Absorption

Breakthrough nano-dispersion technology enables rapid and complete absorption of omega-3 into the body, not possible with soft gels and other omega-3 products.

2. Liquid RTD Drink

Enhanced Recovery is the only omega-3 that is not spoon oil or a soft gel – both of which have strong drawbacks. Enhanced Recovery is Ready-to-Drink or mix it into your smoothie. 

3. Multi-Nutritional

No one else delivers a total nutrition package with omega-3 + protein + vitamins and antioxidants.

4. The Best Source

Enhanced Recovery is made from 100% pure Norwegian cod liver oil and simple, pure ingredients.

5. The Freshest Omega-3 Available

Enhanced Recovery is aseptically packaged to eliminate oxidation before consumption. 

In both wild and farm-raised salmon, the content of omega-3 will vary significantly depending on what the fish eat. In general, farm-raised salmon has about half the content of omega-3 found in wild salmon. However, about 75% of all salmon consumed is farm-raised. A farm-raised salmon filet contains about 1.13 grams of omega-3 per normal 3-ounce serving size. One Enhanced Recovery omega-3 drink provides 1.6 grams of omega-3.

Soft Gels vs. Enhanced Recovery 

Soft Gel Digestive Concerns

No one wants to suffer the “fish burps” and gas that come with soft gel use. Enhanced Recovery eliminates this problem.

Proprietary nano-dispersion technology breaks the oils into tiny droplets that are coated in protein bonds. This ensures maximum nutrient absorption and eliminates digestive burps or gas. 

Soft Gel Freshness Concerns

The minute your soft gel container is opened, oxidation begins and potency begins to degrade. 

Enhanced Recovery eliminates the problem of oxidation. We aseptically package our omega-3 right from the Barents Sea, ensuring the freshest possible omega-3 available.

The World’s First Omega-3 Multi-Nutritional Smoothie

A better way to get the omega-3 your body needs.

Enhanced Recovery combines all the goodness of omega-3 replenishing nutrition along with 20g of muscle-building protein, vitamins, and antioxidants in a Ready-To-Drink nutritional smoothie for daily nutritional health, maximum athletic performance and workout recovery.

The Enhanced Recovery™ Advantage

We understand the challenges you face as a sports dietitian and want to help! Enhanced Recovery™ offers you and your athletes a more well-rounded solution to post-workout nutrition that both athletes and dietitians love.

High-Quality Ingredients

The omega-3 market is filled with low quality, minimum dose products that are susceptible to oxidation over time. We wanted to provide an alternative solution.

The omega-3’s in Enhanced Recovery™ are sourced directly from cod in the Barents Sea. This results in a high-quality triglyceride-based product with a higher EPA+DHA dose than your standard fish oil capsule.

Convenience & Athlete Compliance

In a recently-published study assessing dose response and compliance, athletes found Enhanced Recovery™ to be a more convenient omega-3 option compared to fish oil pills, reporting it was a more realistic supplement to consistently consume.

Athletes consuming 1 Enhanced Recovery™ per day for 6 weeks, improved their O3i from 5.5 to 7.4%.

Cost & Storage Efficient
