The article "Omega-3 Fatty Acids - Levels up in Competitive Sports!" by Prof. Dr. Clemens von Schacky, which appeared in the Sportärztezeitung, is about the positive effect of omega-3 fatty acids in competitive sports. We have summarized the content of the article for you below.
Omega-3 fatty acids are part of the polyunsaturated fatty acids. Unlike saturated fatty acids, the body cannot produce them by itself. They must therefore be provided by the diet. Since omega-3 fatty acids are vital for our body, they are called essential fatty acids.
The article is about whether the regular consumption of fish or omega-3 fatty acids has an influence on genetic body weight. Here we summarize the results of a recent American study on this topic, which was published in 2019 in "The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition".
