Product description

Regular consumption of fatty fish, 1 to 2 servings per week, is recommended by international health authorities to support general health. This recommendation corresponds to a daily average intake of 250-500 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) + docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). However, not everyone likes to eat fish, and this also applies to athletes. Taking 1 softgel of the 6d OMEGA-3 EPAX® per day can prevent a deficiency of EPA and DHA, due to lack of sufficient fish consumption. Despite the various metabolic, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, vascular, and cognitive effects of fish oil on the body, the science community is not yet sure whether intensive sport requires higher intakes of fish oil. Nevertheless, high doses of EPA (eg 2g / day) are recommended in some specific situations, for example during the rehabilitation process of a muscle injury. The anti-inflammatory effect, as well as the stimulating effect of EPA on muscle protein synthesis, can possibly facilitate the recovery of muscle injuries.

In order to meet the demand for such high doses, an exceptionally high concentrated fish oil concentrate was used in the development of the 6d OMEGA-3 EPAX®. Named EPAX 5025 TGN. The 50 and 25 stand for 500 mg EPA and 250 mg DHA per 1000 mg and thus per capsule! Four softgels of 6d OMEGA-3 EPAX® are sufficient to obtain a dosage of 2g EPA. The "TG" stands for triglycerides, which are better absorbed than the commonly used, and cheaper, ethyl ester forms. In addition, the chosen fish oil in the 6d OMEGA-3 EPAX® is ultra pure because the "N" in the EPAX 5025 TGN stands for "neutral in taste and odour", which means that no lemon oil is needed to mask the "fishy" after-taste often seen with the use of cheaper fish oil supplementation. Finally, the EPAX fish oil in the 6d OMEGA-3 EPAX® is well known for its extremely low oxidation levels throughout the product's shelf life! Therefore, only a minimal amount of vitamin E is needed, in the form of natural tocopherol extracts, to further prevent fish oil oxidation during its shelf life. Avoiding adding too much vitamin E is important because of the possible negative effects of (high intakes) of vitamin E on training adaptations.

In short, thanks to its superior quality and its extremely high dose of 500mg EPA and 250mg DHA per softgel, the 6d OMEGA-3 EPAX®is the ideal supplement for athletes who do not eat (enough) fish on a regular basis. Also, athletes in need for a higher dose, for example during the rehabilitation of a muscle injury, can make use of the 6d OMEGA-3 EPAX®.
