For those of you that haven’t noticed, CrossFit West is now supplying Nordic Naturals pharmaceutical-grade fish oil products.  We’ve worked out a distribution deal for you guys so that we can offer our members the lowest price possible on these high-quality Omega-3 products.  We will gaurantee that you will not get these products cheaper anywhere else.  It’s just one more service we offer to our athletes here at CF West to keep you healthy and fit.  We’ve got products for adults and kids alike, so make sure to pick some up for the family next time you are in. 

So, why do we need fish oil supplements? 

There are 2 types of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) that the body needs: Omega-3 and Omega-6. Our body cannot synthesize these, thus they must come from food and/or supplements.  The average western diet contains far too many Omega-6s, thus most people could benefit from balancing that ratio with an Omega-3 supplement such as fish oil. The body must receive a constant and balanced supply of EFAs to ensure proper prostaglandin production.  Prostaglandins are beneficial hormone-like compounds that affect virtually every system in the body.  They regulate pain and swelling, help maintain proper blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and promote fluidity in nerve transmission. 

As a CrossFitter, on top of the many benefits that the average person will see with adding a fish oil regiment to their nutrition program, you will notice dramatic recovery benefits. The anti-inflammatory properties of Fish Oil will cut down on soreness, fatigue, and recovery time. 

We’ll be hosting a representative from Nordic Naturals soon for a fish oil seminar and in the meantime, check out www.nordicnaturals.com for more info.
