I recently read an article featured in the Feb 2nd edition of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette indicating the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers had a secret weapon, and it wasn’t just Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes. Their secret weapon? Fish Oil!
As it turns out, 36 members of the Pittsburgh Steelers took part in a 2 year, double blind clinical study on the benefits of highly refined Omega-3 fish oil. 20 players were given healthy doses of Omega-3 Fish Oil and 16 were given a placebo.
The results of the study were impressive and included:
- Omega-3 Fish Oil Supports Healthy “good” cholesterol levels (LDL).
- Omega-3 Fish Oil supports healthy triglyceride levels already within the normal range.
- Highly refined, ultra pure Omega-3 supplementation is recommended “not only during their active NFL careers, but throughout their retirement as well.”
So, the next time you think about whether it’s worth it for you to take your Omega-3s every day, think about the Pittsburgh Steelers and their accomplishments. They were the only team with active players featured in the Fish Oil study and they won the Super Bowl. Note they used “highly refined” fish oil, which indicates it was an ultra pure, super concentrated form, just like we provide at Purity Products. If it’s good for them, you can bet it’s good for you!
