The Influence of Omega-3 LCPUFA Supplementation on Cardio-Respiratory Function during Exercise in Endurance Athletes
This article at a glance
- How specific nutrients modulate adaptations to exercise and endurance training is a topic of growing interest.
- Two recent small studies have made a careful analysis of potential cardio-respiratory changes in response to omega-3 LCPUFA supplementation in highly-trained athletes at rest, during exercise, and during recovery.
- The results suggest that specific improvements such as lowered heart rate, increased oxygen uptake, and faster heart rate recovery can be achieved.
